Now turning Nightwing into an angst ridden character is not a step that I'm exactly looking forward to, but it's reached the point where any sign of change is welcome, as this is a book that has become mired in a sense that nothing of consequence will ever occur. I mean breaking up the Dick/Barbara relationship was an unexpected development, and while I didn't feel it was convincingly handled, I did enjoy the simple fact that Devin Grayson was willing to make this step. This issue delivers a similar moment, as she has the character confronted by a nightmarish situation where he's not able to save everyone. Every good hero needs a moment like this. Spider-Man has Gwen Stacy. Batman has Jason Todd. Superman has, or rather had Supergirl. These are the tragedies that take a measure of a hero and it's nice to see Nightwing looks to have been confronted by a similar scenario. My only real quibble with the scene is that it's somewhat compromised by a cheesy rescue involving a circus elephant. Read Full Review
