In Gotham Batman tackles Penguin about his involvement.
Art-The art was adequate though not as good as Ben Oliver who drew the first arc.
Africa- I’m enjoying the expansions that Judd is making to the continent of Africa throughout this series. First came Batwing then the Kingdom: Earthstrike, Thunderfall, Dawnfire, Razorwire, Steelback, Staff, Diety, Josiah Kone; now we have another nation and more superhumans; Lord Battle and four others; thank you Judd! For years I wandered why a continent larger than America had so few super beings and thanks to you they are coming out of the woodwork! That my friend is needed and welcomed, cheers!
Cover- The Dragon in the background while Batwing and Nightwing (The Wing boys) strike a pose in the foreground, pretty cool looking cover.
Matu Ba- It’s really good that he becoming more than just the “butler” he could give Alfred a run for his money in sheer complexity in a completely unassuming package.
Art- The drop in the production values on this book will turn off original and new readers alike.
Cheers to expanding Africa an shining the batlight in a beautiful way 3/5
