This is still pretty good, but I think it needs to make a leap, there’s so much potential in the concept of ‘African Batman’ but Judd Winick is just telling a pretty standard superhero story. But it’s still a damn good superhero story, and the art is excellent. I also started to like the character of David Zavimbe a lot more in this issue, in #1 I found him dull, but he showed real spirit and strength here, especially in the scene where he was literally skewered on Massacre’s sword. Massacre’s back-story is becoming pretty clear too, he was either a member of The Kingdom or suffered at their hands and is taking his revenge. I do like how Winick is creating lots of new characters like Thunder Fall and defining the DCU Africa more than it was before, when it was basically just B’Wana Beast and Congorilla. Ben Oliver’s art is as I said really strong, and the violence is surprisingly brutal. I’m enjoying this title, but I do feel it could be doing more.

I just picked up this one and #1 due to hearing some good stuff about it. I agree with you, it's an interesting concept and I kinda liked where the story pushed to a little more in this one, but they could definitely do more and will need to for me to keep reading it after the arc.
