    Infinite Comix - Jacob Torres Jul 24, 2015

    Season 2 of Grayson is heating up as the dynamic duo of Tim Seeley and Tom King deliver one of the title's best issues yet. Tensions are high in this taut and thrilling issue as trust between the Spyral operatives erodes. The dialogue and exchanges between characters is compelling and Dick's wit provides a nice bit of humor. Another peek at Spyder adds an extra bit of intrigue to Spyral and the issue ends with a shocking twist the murder mystery. Read Full Review

    If you havent grooved to Grayson yet, or still are tending your wounds over the loss of a costume, I may not be able to change your mind. Because ultimately, Grayson is doing something far beyond what we saw with Nightwing. Its fresh, funny, and utterly intoxicating, and now is the time to enjoy everything our man Dick has to offer. And if that doesnt sound appealing wow, not sure what I could say. Because YES. This is the stuff. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 22, 2015

    Grayson is my favorite comic book on the shelves today and this issue only solidifies that fact.  While we are given a huge cliffhanger on the continuing murder mystery setup last issue, we also get some information on Spyral and an awesome guest star...Lex Luthor.  The interaction between Dick and Lex was so great, I want a teamup book right now.  The story and art in this issue is top of the line and combine into a must read book for anyone who's a fan of comics.  I may be a fanboy and certainly sound like on in this blurb, but this book deserves all the attention it gets and more...much more.  Highly recommended.

    Word Of The Nerd - Daniel Kalban Jul 23, 2015

    Grayson remains to be one of the strongest books DC Comics has on the market today. It's fun, action packed, and sets up some great plot lines. While this issue is mainly a jumping off point to the action; it's certain this arc will be action packed with thrills and adventure. And with Seeley and King promising this arc will bring Dick back to the larger DC Universe and make him an even more important hero than before, it's certain this is one adventure we won't want to miss. Move over, Mister Bond; Dick Grayson is the super spy now. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Aug 15, 2015

    This book just keeps getting better and better. The current arc is deep in mystery and it just gets more intriguing every issue. It lives in the spy genre with just enough odd nods to its super-hero roots to remind the reader that this is still the iconic sidekick, Dick Grayson. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jul 25, 2015

    Janin is doing one hell of a job on this series. This is the kind of art that gets you noticed and gets you bigger and better gigs. If Grayson #10 doesn't make Janin a bigger star, nothing will. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Jul 23, 2015

    Overall: All the makings of a great comic: fantastic writing, phenomenal art, and characters and events that you actually care about. The road ahead of Grayson will not doubt be difficult, but with a supporting cast that is getting increasingly more three-dimensional and an ongoing mystery that is actually compelling, this book is well worth diving into. Whether you're a long-time reader or still debating on getting into it, this is a great comic for any type of fan. Read Full Review

    Comics Recap - Sofia Marlasca Jul 24, 2015

    With more than a few twists, this book is a fun ride. Like any good spy story, it leaves you doubting about everyone's loyalties " even Dick's! Luthor's appearance helps up the stakes and bring the story into focus for the bigger universe it plays a part of, and it does so marvelously. With a thrilling cliffhanger, this story still has a lot of knots to tie in the following issues. I do hope the storytelling will continue to be up to the challenge. So far, they haven't given us a reason to doubt so. Read Full Review

    Grayson #10 once again proves why this is a must have addition to any fans pull, with Dick's latest adventures being captivating to say the least. It is however the speculation and question of trust that interests this fan most, with there being a lot to ponder whilst waiting for the next installment. Read Full Review

    The Rainbow Hub - Emma Houxbois Jul 24, 2015

    One way or another, this a relatively straightforward, plot driven issue whose primary pleasures are watching Luthor smirk and Dick squirm which is perfectly acceptable. Jeromy Cox in particular deserves a tip of the hat for the fantastic colours and shadowing this issue. The striped shadow from the patio roof falling over Luthor as he steps into view is particularly worthy of note, so too is the contrast of deep blues and reds between Agent 1 and Helena as they argue over Dick's fate. Cox's work truly is the punctuation mark on the end of every sentence in this comic, and when they aren't exclamation points, they're interrobangs. The challenge of reviewing Graysonas it closes in on it's first birthday isn't determining what works and what doesn't, it's casting about for new heights for it to aspire to. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jul 24, 2015

    "Grayson" #10 is a fun issue in a book that's now two-for-two, post-"Convergence." The book has both kicked itself into high gear and quickly become a must-read. Seeley, King, Janin and Cox are delivering the goods big-time here. If you haven't been reading the series, the current storyline only kicked off in "Grayson" #9, so now's the perfect time to start reading. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jul 22, 2015

    I do admire how far GRAYSON has come since we first saw Dick make the move to becoming a secret agent. Seeley and King are pouring in the spy drama and intrigue that keeps us on the edge of our seats. Janin and Cox's art and colors are gorgeous and fit the book nicely. I'm still waiting for a certain female to appear again but I'm completely enjoying each issue as they come. Who wouldve thought the former Robin would be allowed to come so far? If youve been holding onto the notion that Dick needs to be a costumed superhero, you need to see just how much he's changed and grown as a character in this series alone. I can't wait to see what'll happen next. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Jesse Peterson Jul 26, 2015

    In the end the series as a whole keeps surprising me. I never thought the idea of Dick Grayson as a spy could be so well executed. One day I hope he dons the mask again, but I am all onboard the spy team. Let the mystery train keep rolling. Read Full Review

    As we move into the second arc, or series as it has been dubbed, Grayson continues to live up to the hype that surrounds it. By maintaining an exceptionally high standard with regards to both the writing and the artwork Grayson sets itself apart from what could be considered its competitors. Read Full Review

    Still a strong title, but it is losing a little of its breezy feel. I know this is the path for a book becoming 'bigger,' but I'm still going to pout a little about it. But just a little. Read Full Review
