Review: Batwing Vol. 3, by Fabian Nicienza & Judd Winick

Batwing, Vol. 3: Enemy of the StateBatwing, Vol. 3: Enemy of the State by Judd Winick
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Well I’m having a shitty run of luck right now, but then again, I willingly read a 3rd Batwing TPB, with diminishing returns each time.

This one was OK with the Winick issues (first few) but WAY worse with Fabian Nicieza (the rest).

I feel like someone told him his time was up (there’s a NEW Batwing now, nothing to do with this David African fella) and he decided, well forget this. Pretty much everything that can go wrong does, just a spiral out of control for our ‘hero’ who’s already thrown a man in a jet into a mountain and killed him (it did save others, but still). He also keeps talking about how he should go back to killing, like before the Batman bother of not killing. He’s also fighting a villain who’s just some sorta voodoo type and it’s so bullshit I’m like Bitch please. This is stupid.

The dialogue comes across like it was written by someone who doesn’t understand humour, plot, keeping people interested, continuity, or language.

This is the entirety of the comic relief in this DARK GRITTY/SHITTY book is as follows:

Bad Guy: How much more will that cost me?
Sky Pirate: A buck or two, give or take.
Bad Guy: Give or take what?
Sky Pirate: A lot more bucks than a buck or two.

To the fine folks at DC, who brought us this:


Mic Drop.

About Gavin

I'm a lover of pop-culture, from movies to music to books to TV shows to well...comics, and just about everything in between. I'm also a history buff, and spent 4 yrs getting a fancy BA in it. When I was at said University, I got my learn on AND spent all my money on CDs and VHS (yup, I'm THAT old.) However, I'm happy to discuss any topic really, as I love a good debate or just to be proven right. I'm Canadian, so I wear shorts and flip flops 9 months of the year, but no, I am NOT fanatical about hockey (I actually prefer baseball, thank my American father for that!). I love the outdoors, but don't get out enough... I've got a sick twisted sense of humour (hence why I'm friends with these Shallow folks) and believe that laughter is the best medicine...except penicillin...cause laughter won't cure the clap.
