More excellent touches from this issue:

  • The character’s alleged real name, David Zavimbi, is the popular nom de plume of Nigerian email scammers. Elsewhere in the issue is a scene with Bruce Wayne trolling messageboards to put out disinformation about his own secret identity. Clearly he’s been doing the same for Batwing.

  • The receptionist in panel three of this page, foreground. That character appeared in a couple of panels a few years ago as a prostitute that Batman sends to Wayne Enterprises for a job. Bruce sees her again in Batman 701 and she says she did interview for the job, and now we see that she got it.

  • Also, the new Dark Ranger, seen in this issue, is left-handed like his predecessor.
