Batwing vs. Massacre
When Grant Morrison created Batwing for Batman Inc. (or resurrected him, depending on what you think his actual origin - Evidence), I was pleased. I've liked the number of recent series that have explored Africa (mostly Unknown Soldier, but even the Vixen mini) and was ready for more. Unfortunately, the series didn't survive the first issue as far as my reading list went. I can't read everything, and while #1 had promise, it was also big on splashes and low on story, and ended with a machete through someone's chest, a dreadful cliché that seemed precursor of things to come. Was I right?
