    If you can invest in all 20 issues of this series it is a great companion to Dick Graysons greatest adventures either as Nightwing or as part of the New Teen Titans. It clearly works as one big story and is a must read for all Dick Grayson fans. I am sad to see this series end, but I have confidence that Tim Seeley, Javi Fernandez and Marcus To will continue to tell great Dick Grayson stories in Nightwing launching in July. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge May 25, 2016

    As a longtime Nightwing fan, I balked at the announcement of Grayson. Seeing Dick trade in his wings for a drab uniform and a gun rubbed me the wrong way. But the story that Tim Seeley, Tom King, and Mikal Janin told ended up being much more entertaining and much more narratively rich than I gave it credit for, adding up to more than just a new costume, co-stars, and setting. Now with Grayson #20, Jackson Lanzing, Collin Kelly, Roge Antonio and Jeromy Cox deliver a finale that not only stayed true to the spirit of the title that Seeley, King, and Janin started, but also stayed true to Dick Grayson himself.

    While occasionally this book loses focus by having to also end the stories of Grayson's supporting cast, this is some very solid work from a pair of up-and-coming writers. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Corbin Pool May 26, 2016

    This series has been amazing. The last three issues, I've been saying that I wish that King and Seeley were able to finish it out, but I can't imagine another team doing as good as a job as Lanzing and Kelly have done. I'm super excited for Rebirth, and everything that's coming out of it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 25, 2016

    It may not sound sexy, but Lansing and Kelly came in to do a job and did it. Dick Grayson and Helena Bertinelli are ready for their Rebirth closeups and even though we all knew how it would happen, they still threw in some cool surprises. This whole series was a celebration of Dick Grayson and it ends as just that.  I already miss this series. Read Full Review

    . Ultimately, it's not the plot that makes issue #20 a winner, but rather the clear sense of character that's consistent throughout. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Eric Joseph May 27, 2016

    Grayson #20 not only neatly wraps up the superspy era, but also provides reasoning as to why most of the world forgets who he is, therefore he can once again wear a mask. But I doubt any of us will complain about the return of Nightwing, which the final page segues into. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws May 25, 2016

    Ultimately, it's fine. Given the uphill battle this and other books have been fighting tinware storylines up, it could have been worse and my expectations weren't so high as to be disappointed. Still, seeing a book that was so consistently great no matter what was going on around it end on a lackluster note is a letdown. The creative team did an admirable job of keeping everything fun and even somewhat coherent until the end, and ultimately Grayson was a great book through and through, I just wish it could have ended on its own terms.

    Dick's spy arc ended, and his anonymity restored in a nice neat package. Wish it hadn't needed to be so rushed an ending, but I am looking forward to Rebirth and his further adventures. Hope this isn't the last we see of the students and the other support cast of Grayson

    Rushed, but ultimately a decent ending that ties previous threads together.

    A good book all in all, I'm sad that King and Seeley weren't able to write the ending, but keep in mind that King is working on Batman, and Seeley is on Nightwing, they probably had to focus on getting those books ready (Both are Bi-Monthly, it is probably a LOT of work). As for the end of this book...I thought it was fun, a bit rushed and awkward, but all in all, an enjoyable climax to a very enjoyable series.

    finally getting to see all the various incarnations of Dick Grayson (Flying Grayson, Robin, Nightwing, Batman, Talon) vs. Dr Daedalus was definitely the high point of the issue. . . . . . . it was a satisfying end, and made the whole journey feel worthwhile. . . . . . . much of the comic felt rushed, predictable and resolved all to easily. . . . . . but at least this series finally set right what was bungled up by DC Editorial back in 'Forever Evil'. . . . . . . and while i can say that without a doubt that i absolutely LOVE the character of Dick Grayson, i just can't waste anymore time and money on DC's sub-par product. . . . . . . . if anything i'll just continue to get the re-releases of Classic Nightwing collected editions so long as DC continues to publish them. . . . . . . can't say i'm excited in the least for DC Rebirth.
