    Black Nerd Problems - William Evans Jul 5, 2017

    A pretty good issue overall and slightly different balance for a Nightwing series with such an action focus. Which is a good change of pace. It ends with a bang and we'll have to see what daring escape the trapeze artist made this time as this arc continues. Read Full Review

    NIGHTWING #24 is jam-packed with intense action sequences mixed with noteworthy character development. Tim Seeley develops all the characters into well-rounded individuals who are fascinating to read. The artwork by Miguel Mendonca is eye-catching and imaginative. All in all, this is a great issue which leaves the reader wanting more. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jul 5, 2017

    There's not a ton of plot this issue, but a fun excuse to watch Nightwing unleashed. The cliffhanger isn't as exciting as Seeley hoped, but with a story this good, there was little chance I was going to miss the next issue anyway. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Jul 5, 2017

    Grand and gripping entertainment, from beginning to end. This is action storytelling at its finest, with an extended fight scene that is one of the best in ages. Not content with “just” being an adrenaline-pumping good time, though, there's also plenty of heart to be had here. Seeley's walking the fine line perfectly, building his world and making you feel for the characters while also making you want to do a bunch of push-ups because it's so exciting. Nightwing is great, is what I'm getting at. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jul 9, 2017

    That aside, sometimes what works really is a straightforward premise. Its a giant submarine with Nightwing and a bunch of supervillains inside. What more could you want? If youre in need of a fantastically enjoyable read this month, pick this one up. Its worth it. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Jul 6, 2017

    Tim Seeley has given Blockbuster an interesting motivation in his campaign against Nightwing. As far as Blockbuster is concerned, Dick's not nearly as committed to saving Bldhaven as he is, therefore Nightwing is a fraud. That's not a bad way to go, although that cliffhanger ending isn't fooling anyone. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Sergio Pereira Jul 5, 2017

    Once again, Seeley drops another terrific issue in the form of Nightwing #24. The series might not be considered one of DC's premium books, but it's certainly outperforming some of the other bigger titles, such as The Flash and Justice League, in quality. Add this to your must-buy list. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Jul 5, 2017

    The endingis somewhat clichd. Its a common cliffhanger weve seen many time before, andwill no doubt see again. But Im comfortable with that so long as the entirestory does not hinge upon it. Future issues will tell. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Ariel DuPey Jul 5, 2017

    A rat race from start to finish. As exciting as seeing some of these baddies in a Nightwing book, their introductions seemed messy and unnecessary. This was my only issue with the issue though. Other wise, it was fun and fast paced thriller ride. Hoping for a Sherlock worthy redemption next book. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 6, 2017

    Nightwing #24 is an energetic story that Dick Grayson fans will love. Seeing Nightwing go up against and overcome a wide variety of villains from all corners of the DC Universe was a site to see. The "Blockbuster" arc still suffers from not enough development for the main villains of the story but the action in Nightwing #24 more than makes up for that as we enter the big anniversary issue of this series.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 5, 2017

    While on the surface, Nightwing taking out a shit load of villains sounds like a good time, here it felt like just a way to pad out this arc a bit because not a lot went down here besides for you understanding that our hero is competent.  The art though was fantastic and I liked the cliffhanger, but overall, not much went down in this issue but a ongoing fight scene.   Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Eric Cline Jul 5, 2017

    Nightwing #24 tries to do too much in too short a span of time. The good portions of the issue get rushed through as Dick moves on to the next fight. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - David Finn Jul 6, 2017

    This is a strange, odd issue of Nightwing to review and rate. In a way, the flaws are evident and make the book decidedly average " the combination of a rushed fight scenes and non-compelling art mean it barely earns two and a half stars. But then again, there's some saving graces. There is a beauty to the character models " if they seem stilted they still are quite beautiful. And then there's the story " I've covered how rushed the fight and antagonists feel and there's no getting away from it, that is the overall feel. But perhaps this is the writer's way of pushing through the arc without spending multiple issues inside the ship. For me, the jury is out if it's effective or not. Maybe it's just effective, nothing more. Either way, this is a solid run and they are allowed a blip. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Donald Hudec Jul 8, 2017

    Nightwing really needs to get a stronger supporting cast. He is a potentially A List superhero, one of the most famous of all history. He's the original Robin! He's a founding Titan! And yet" Defacer, Mouse and Giz? (IS that pronounced Jizz? Does he know what that means??) Anyway, it's an easy, breezy issue. The artwork is solid. The dialogue is okay, but sometimes misses the mark. "And like any good war? It's gonna end with a bomb." I would have liked to have a stronger sense of danger here, even considering the cliffhanger ending, but all things considered? This issue is still a good time. Read Full Review
