DC RELAUNCH: Batwing survives Batman, Inc.


If you were wondering if everything Grant Morrison has done with Batman, Inc. will be swept under the rug when DC relaunches its superhero line, IGN is reporting that the Batman of Africa – Batwing, is getting his own title, written by Judd Winick, with art by Ben Oliver.

“Batwing #1 is a series that spins right out of Grant Morrison’s Batman Incorporated storyline. This is the first time that we have an in-continuity black character wearing the Batman costume,” said Batman group editor Mike Marts. “Grant has provided us with so many new characters and concepts. He’s really just been a fountain of ideas and energy for the Batman group of titles. We have so many different cool things to choose from what Grant creates, and we go with what we think is going to provide readers with the most story and the most excitement. And with this, Batwing won out.”
