I both liked and disliked this issue. What I liked was the story; Judd Winick flashes back to David Zavimbe’s origins, and shows how he was as a child soldier and then turned over a new leaf, a very violent leaf. Winick treated the very serious issue of child soldiers with respect, and I get the sense that there’s still a lot more about David’s past that we will learn, like what’s the nature of his superpowers that seem to give him an edge in war, if he has powers at all, and also how he met Batman. And I think we’re pretty much all in agreement right now that Massacre is Isaac Zavimbe? He fell off a cliff, but we never actually saw him die. What I didn’t like in this issue was the art, ChrissCross fills in for Ben Oliver here, and it really didn’t work for me, especially his depiction of the Batwing armour, which looked really clunky and ugly. I hope Oliver is back next month, because this book needs his art.
