Batwing #7

On his way to Gotham, Batwing leans the terrible secret of Africa's prime meta human team. The Kingdom steals the show in this issue by Judd Winick, even though their story is told using flashbacks. The reason why things went the way they did and the choices they were forced to make, were written well within the realm of logic, and showed why a terrible thing was allowed to happen just to prevent one ten times worse. Between The Kingdom's backstory and the Bat-family's appearance in the book, there was not much Batwing to talk about; let's hope this does not become the norm -although some more Kingdom wouldn't be a bad thing. The one factor that was detrimental to the story was the artwork by Dustin Nguyen. It's already been announced that Ben Oliver is leaving the book, but this was the one issue that would have looked fantastic pencilled by him. Overall, great writing, below average art.
