    Throughout the issue, Dick tries his best to solve problems through communication and logic only to get run over by his associates who have a shoot-first mentality. As Nightwing, he worked alone " and I'm wondering how long before the former freelancer bucks his employer. It's great to see the moral dilemmas played up as Grayson plays double-agent, and it's evident that King and Seeley are playing up not only the lines Grayson has to walk, but the black and whites on either side of him.

    Overall, this issue continues to prove Grayson is a strong title and that Dick Grayson can rise above the cloak-and-dagger world of Spyral. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Oct 1, 2014

    Grayson #3 is a comic that a lot of powerful and shock to it when it was all over. The writing was fantastic, the characters were great, the message and themes were well handled, and the artwork was stunning as usual. There were concerns when people saw the solicitation about Grayson having to make a hard choice and it relating to guns, but those people should not be concerned. Everything turned out great and true to the character. Read Full Review

If you're reading the series as a whole it really adds to the overall story. Tension is brewing. We care about the characters. Hot topic issues are addressed.

    Doom Rocket - Gavin Rehfeldt Oct 2, 2014

    The point is, pick up this book! It is concise in its goals while also being witty and fun. It is classy comics for readers who like moral complexity, espionage, and action. Grayson looks to be a watershed for DC's recently welcomed indie-famous creators who are playing in the New52 sandbox. The final page, a coda, presents deepened complications with Dick's new employers and I, for one, cannot wait! Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Jacob Torres Oct 7, 2014

    For a character so predicated on progression — his evolution part of the reason why he's garnered such a die-hard following — it's surprising that the idea of Dick Grayson 'super spy' didn't sit well with many readers when first announced. Images of Dick brandishing a gun had others seething red, worrying that they'd 'gritty' him up. However Seeley and King quickly proved their fears were for nothing, winning over readers with an adept understanding of the character. The issue's climax displays Dick's optimism, hope, and genuine belief that there's good in everyone, is one of the most memorable and engaging sequence of the series so far. No matter what adventure Seeley and King take him on next readers can always count on Dick Grayson, unrepentantly and unapologetically, being Dick Grayson. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 1, 2014

    Grayson #3 is an issue I can finally recommend to Nightwing fans.  It's a fun little action story with the appropriate grey areas that spy books love to dabble in, but in the end it's Seeley and King showing that they don't want to change Dick, just his situation.  Mikel Janin's art is stellar and is just another reason to give this book a try.  If you bailed or never jumped in, this is the issue to get back on the trolley.

    Borderline excellence, but a bit too straightforward and undercut to hit that level. Read Full Review
