Review: Nightwing #25

(Spoilers ahead) Nightwing #25 is an impressive return to form for a comic run that has set a benchmark of solid issues with the occasional dip. There’s something strangely grounded about Nightwing...

Review: Nightwing #24

(Spoilers ahead) Nightwing #24 is unfortunately a misstep in what has been a solid run. Primarily this isn’t a failing of the story, but the art change-up on the title is sub-par and while the...

(Spoilers ahead) Nightwing #23 picks up in Bludhaven, with Blockbuster’s brother, Roland greeting Nightwing and telling him the story of his life and that of his brother, Mark Desmond, the original...

This Week in the Batcave

Sorry for the mess down here, friends, but yesterday was Alfred’s day off and things got a bit out of hand. It was Father’s Day after all, and the old man deserves a little rest. What...

Review: Nightwing #22

(Spoilers ahead) Nightwing #22 is an exercise in slick, compact storytelling. Picking up in the aftermath of the team-up with Wally West and the “time freezing dude bro” of the previous issue,...

This Week in the Batcave

Themyscira afflicted with bat invasion, this week’s news reads. Following the release of the first cinematographic solo Wonder Woman film this past Thursday, the secret location of Paradise Island...

Review: Nightwing #20

Review: Nightwing #17

One of my favorite runs in comic books and specifically favorite runs within The Batman Universe is Grant Morrison’s run featuring Dick Grayson as Batman and Damian Wayne as Robin. Nightwing #17...

Review: Nightwing #16

For lovers of the Damian Wayne/Dick Grayson dynamic, Nightwing #16 supplies it in spades. For me as a reader, this was an issue I’ve been waiting for, a further exploration of one of the most...

Review: Nightwing #15

Nightwing #15 is a great example of how to do a modern romance issue inside a superhero tale. We don’t see enough (or hardly any) of them these days, and Even in a Dream (the issue title) is a nice...

Editorial: Light shines brighter when there is darkness – how Nightwing’s foes should be developed

A superhero is only as good as their rogues gallery. This is not an absolute truth, but it is a recurring tendency in the comics industry. And what is a rogues gallery without an arch nemesis, right?...

Review: Nightwing #12

Picking up from the events of the previous issue, Detective Svobodai is at the graffiti-strewn crime scene of a Bludhaven murder. Nightwing turns up on the scene, and discovers that the victim was a...

Review: Nightwing #11

The Nightwing title has certainly flipped the script, the dark conflicted vibe of the first few issues involving Talon replaced by a more colorful and fun vibe as Nightwing begins his adventures in...

Review: Nightwing #9

The first impression Nightwing #9 is that it definitely aims for the title “delightful filler.” On this idea, the issue moves at a nice, relaxed pace and gives readers a break from what has been...

Review: Nightwing #8

Nightwing #8 kicks off with us following the threads of the Raptor storyline, who has apparently been stalking Nightwing his whole life – which extends back to the days of the circus. This is...

Review: Nightwing #7

Rebounding out of the Night of the Monster Men event, Nightwing #7 quickly finds it’s feet and this issue is among my favorite in the series to this point.   The issues begins in Sydney,...

Review: Nightwing #6

Night of the Monster Men may well be my least favorite bat-event in the last 10 years – which isn’t to say it doesn’t have some redeeming moments, but they haven’t lifted this event...

Review: Nightwing #5

To this point, Nightwing has had a strong solid start to rejuvenate the series coming out of Rebirth. Unfortunately after the incredibly boring events of Batman #7 as the start of the Night of the...

Review: Nightwing #4

Nightwing #4 kicks with Nightwing and Raptor (who it’s becoming increasingly obvious has a kind of funky mask) in conversation with Dr. Leviticus, now free of the cage they located her in last...

Review: Nightwing #3

Nightwing has been a title hot out of the gate in DC Rebirth, and Nightwing #3 does not slow that momentum. Picking up in media res, as Raptor stands over a bleeding prone body, we see Batgirl...
