Back on the job at Spyral, Dick now has a mission all his own: find out more about Agent Zero. What could this mysterious shadow leader want with Agent 37?

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Oct 28, 2015

    Overall, this book continues to be fantastic. It's highly under-rated and really reinvents Dick Grayson. Is it a bummer that he's not Nightwing anymore? Sure, but this new chapter in his life really sets him apart and makes him more than just an "ex-Robin." I highly recommend checking this issue and series out. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Matt Little Nov 2, 2015

    The road is still going to be long for Dick Grayson before he's finally found the corruption at the root of Spyral, but Tim Seeley, Tom King and Mikel Janin make the ride incredibly enjoyable the whole way. Fans of the series should expect another fun issue that may fall a little short of the series' previous homeruns but won't be disappointed by this nice triple. New fans interested in checking out the series should have no problem jumping into the flow of the story with this issue. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Daniel Kalban Oct 30, 2015

    While mainly setting things up for a major confrontation against the former Batwoman, this remains an exciting chapter in Dick Grayson's life as its number one super spy. With great dialogue and excellent art, Grayson continues to be one of the best books in the DC Comics stable. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Nov 5, 2015

    Whatever else you can say about Tim Seeley and the rest of theGrayson creative team, never accuse them of lacking a sense of humor. As the calendar closed in on Halloween, they offered up a story that nods in the direction of that most appropriate of classics,Frankenstein. Never shy of celebrating Dick Grayson's physical attributes, they open with a scene detailing the former Robin's return to the decidedly unloving embrace of Spyral, a process featuring a medical examination that Doctor Frankenstein would likely appreciate. That it involves the reactivated Agent 37 spending several panels decidedly naked is something many readers of the book can appreciate. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Tajaye Williams Oct 29, 2015

    This title does a tremendous job reminding a long time Dick Grayson fan such as myself why you became a fan of the character in the first place. The latest chapter in Dick Grayson's life might be his biggest challenge since donning the cowl for Batman. Let's just hope he's ready. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge, III Nov 2, 2015

    While the headline last month was Dick Grayson's return to Gotham, Grayson #13 shows that it doesn't have to rely on gimmicks and crossovers to stand as a compelling monthly. Tim Seeley, Mikel Janin, Hugo Petrus and Jeromy Cox take the title back to basics while enriching their own narrative direction by marrying superhero hijinks with spy drama mechanics. Grayson #13 is one of those rare issues of comics that work as a reader's first issue and as a loyal audience's latest installment; a feat that shouldn't go unnoticed in this day and age of serialized storytelling. While Grayson may look like all abs and death-defying leaps on the outside, on the inside it is quickly becoming DC's dark horse blockbuster. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Oct 28, 2015

    This series is very strong overall. Great characterization and great relationship building between the characters make this an easy book to like. It seems fitting with it being Dick Grayson, though. He was introduced as a gateway character for younger readers 75 years ago. Its no different now. Hes easy to like because he has such fun doing what he does. Seeley, King and Janin are able to convey that month after month. It doesnt seem to matter if its Robin, Nightwing or Agent 37, theres just something about Dick Grayson done right that works. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 31, 2015

    Grayson has become one of DC's best comics. It's fun, it's flirty and it's very comfortable in its own skin. Who knew this would work out so well for Nightwing? Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Oct 29, 2015

    It was going to be tough to top last month's wonderful, reunion centric issue, and thus it comes as no surprise that Grayson's latest entrant feels a bit lacking by comparison. That said, Tim Seeley does a solid job of getting the book's primary narrative back on track, turning Dick's focus towards the recently revealed Agent Zero. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Oct 30, 2015

    More a bridge than anything else, there's still plenty to like here: what action there is is well-staged, the dialogue is fun, the interactions between the characters are great, and just enough is being revealed to sate your hunger without forcing everything out all at once. It's a long game they're playing, and I can't think of a better protagonist to accompany on the journey than Dick Gaston Grayson. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Matthew Murphy Nov 2, 2015

    Awkward storytelling and objectification aside, this was a very weak issue of Grayson. I have a personal fear that returning to Gotham is going to slowly kill my favorite series as the series individuality and espionage theme will be consumed by BATMAN AND ROBIN ETERNAL as well as ROBIN WAR. Are the days of Grayson, super spy, behind us? Has the reign of "Sexy Batman" begun? Check in with me next month for a review of GRAYSON issue 14! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 29, 2015

    Grayson is still my favorite book out right now, but this month's issue tried my patience a bit.  The usual great dialogue and exciting storytelling were MIA and even though the issue sends the book off in some cool directions, I found myself very close to bored.  I did love Mikel Janin's art, but this is the first issue of Grayson (besides the Annual)  that I would not recommend to anyone and everyone. That would make me sad if I wasn't dead inside. Read Full Review
