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.

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

#5 Edited by blkson (785 posts) - - Show Bio

Can't wait to pick this up! The new direction has been great so far.

Black panther. lol.

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

What happened to the other Batwing?

#10 Edited by theTimeStreamer (2841 posts) - - Show Bio

@amutant: retired. that cover was a total lie.

I sense a battle of the week nomination right here.

#12 Posted by ccraft (5050 posts) - - Show Bio

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

#13 Posted by HempKnight757 (128 posts) - - Show Bio

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.

#14 Posted by arnoldoaad (1007 posts) - - Show Bio

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.

#15 Edited by ThatOneKidWhoLikesComics (58 posts) - - Show Bio

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!

#17 Posted by CitizenJP (594 posts) - - Show Bio

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.

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.

#29 Posted by Zeeguy91 (1100 posts) - - Show Bio

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

#31 Posted by Extremis (3334 posts) - - Show Bio

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

#32 Posted by mark15 (72 posts) - - Show Bio

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

#33 Posted by AWeekInGeekdom (228 posts) - - Show Bio

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? =/

#34 Posted by Mrfuzzynutz (985 posts) - - Show Bio

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

#35 Posted by JohnnyGat (1561 posts) - - Show Bio

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.

Batwing and Superboy have some pretty rad costumes

This should be the new World's Finest.

#39 Edited by Immortal777 (6900 posts) - - Show Bio

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

#40 Posted by Omega Ray Jay (7583 posts) - - Show Bio

Not to bad I guess

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!

#43 Edited by evilvegeta74 (4521 posts) - - Show Bio

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

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

#45 Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus (6885 posts) - - Show Bio

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

#46 Posted by Stretchjr (6 posts) - - Show Bio

Bruce Wayne should be wearing the costume with a cape
