Mini-Reviews of "The New 52!": "Batwing," No. 1 and "Static Shock," No. 1

Interestingly enough, these two comics read almost exactly the same. Is it because they’re Black characters? Nope. It’s because  “The New 52” seems to be following a specific—1990s?—pattern of storytelling for No. 1: start with alotta action, then introduce plot, characters, etc. and end with an action-packed cliffhanger. (Batwing’s ending is, ah, sharp. ;))  I hope someone 12 is hooked. Because I want to support Black superheroes AND because I really like these characters AND because I  see really good potential with Batwing, I’ll be following—and collecting—their entire respective runs.
