Exclusive Preview: BATWING #21

The new Batwing has been thrown into the action and will now be facing an even bigger threat than he did last issue. It was nice knowing you.

There's been a bit of discussion over the idea of this new Batwing. You have to admit that Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray have added just the right amount of spice to jumpstart this comic. That isn't meant as a knock against the previous issues but they are adding a new layer to the idea and the fact that we have these heavy repercussions laying around should this Batwing's identity be uncovered.

DC Comics has given us an exclusive look at the next issue, on sale June 3. Hopefully this won't be the end of the new Batwing.

That's a pretty good fight scene.

Edited by Overlander

Posted by theTimeStreamer

It's funny when DC doesn't even get the point of there own characters

Edited by blkson

This looks surprisingly good, can't get over how awesome Batwing's new suit is.

Edited by theTimeStreamer

I sense a battle of the week nomination right here.

He remind me of Wildcat, he is a boxer right?

Posted by HempKnight757

Art doesn't look bad. Dialogue isn't t terrible. Lion-Mane is a little bit over the top. Just still can't get pass the last issue with the whole he was born to wear the suit or whatever.

Posted by arnoldoaad

this is so getting cancelled

not because is bad, but because I find no reason to care about Batwing as i did the last Batwing.

Edited by ThatOneKidWhoLikesComics

I like Luke as Batwing more than David. His suit reminds me more of T'Challa's though.

On sale June 3rd?, cool! two days early! ;)
Just thought I'd give you a heads-up on that G-Man, thanks for the preview. This new shift in Batwing is pretty awesome -- I find this new version of Batwing just more exciting, the art is better and it's actually fun!

What issue does Luke Fox become the new Batwing? I haven't really followed the series but I'm interested in jumping onboard this series.

You're only one issue behind if you plane on starting soon. Batwing #20 was his first full debut.

sadly it's not. This book should've been cancelled a while ago, I only think they're keeping it so they don't get heat about cancelling another black hero's shine like when the green lantern cartoon or jla or whatever it was stopped using the black green lantern. I've stuck with it for a year and it was a pretty horrible year.

Man I sure am glad Black Panther has his own book again.

Lol bp 2.0 too bad this is headed towards the chopping block

Edited by Guardiandevil83

@captain13: Now that you mention it they do fit...new Worlds Finest? Mmmm

Posted by doombot890

I forgot that Black Panther..I mean Black Wing...I mean Batwing was still a running

so is luke running his op out of gotham but fighting in africa? long commute to work.

I like the idea and prefer this costume than the last one (just glad they didnt make it red like nightwings)

#19. I wasn't that much of a fan of the issue itself, but #20 was much better.

Posted by Zeeguy91

I have to say, I'm really enjoying the world-building that Justin and Jimmy are doing here. This new direction for Batwing rocks.

I wouldn't mind seeing that, I do like them both and their costumes are so awesome

Posted by Extremis

Great art, even better fight. Not sure about the writing yet...

Posted by mark15

I'm trade-waiting, hope it doesn't get cancelled, looks too good

Posted by AWeekInGeekdom

Hmm.... is it me or does the cover seems a heck of a lot more intimidating than the actual villain within the pages? Maybe it's the art? =/

Posted by Mrfuzzynutz

I like this Batwing better then the original, suit and characters. Although he clearly gets his design points from Batman Beyond as opposed to the Back Panther in my book

Posted by JohnnyGat

Batwing seemes to be using an excessive amount of sprays, but the question remains, did Batman entrust him with the shark repellent?

I really hope this doesn't get cancelled. Batwing is very different then the other Batcharacters and I reaally like him. And I know Jimmy Palmiotti will do a great job.

This should be the new World's Finest.

Edited by Immortal777

I still don't understand why Batman isn't using this suit instead.

Posted by Omega Ray Jay

Not to bad I guess

Posted by TeamUnitedNerds

Hmmm...is it any possibility that Carrie Kelly could be the new Batwing?

We know the identity of Batwing he is Luke Fox son of Lucius!

Edited by evilvegeta74

Yeah , he 's pretty much a BP rip off! Actually he looks like the Iron Avenger Black Panther look at this pic.

Posted by Guardiandevil83

@rustyroy: That's what I said. Great minds I guess :-)

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Looking great! Palmiotti and Gray really are hitting it home with Batwing thus far! Will have to peruse this issue.

Posted by Stretchjr

Bruce Wayne should be wearing the costume with a cape
