Nightwing and Flamebird, meet Nadira Va-Dim and Az-Rel, the Bonnie and Clyde of Krypton. They've got all of your powers, but absolutely none of your morals. Good luck!

    Once again, Greg Rucka did a very good job producing an enjoyable comic here. It wasn't world-shattering or anything, but it was a good, fast-paced read. I like the characters of Nightwing and Flamebird, and to be perfectly honest, I really don't miss Supes at all in this series. Read Full Review

    Diego Olmos handles the pencils in this issue. It's nice to have one single artist handling the interior, at least. Olmos is no substitute for Barrows, but he's pretty competent in his own way. His pencils are a little more grounded and in keeping with Rucka's espionage flavor. In the quieter story segments and those focusing on human characters, Olmos is a solid fit. His page layouts and overall storytelling are fluid and easy on the eyes. On the other hand, his figure work is a little underwhelming, and this really starts to drag the book down in the more action-oriented sections. Olmos is a good match for Rucka, but not necessarily a good match for Action Comics. Read Full Review

    Overall, the continued development of Nightwing and Flamebird holds the readers interest. This interest will be piqued even more when we finally get to see them begin to come into conflict with General Lane. It looks like we wont have to wait much longer than another month for this conflict to begin to unfold. Read Full Review
