    If you have ever liked Dick Grayson you owe it to yourself to start picking up this book. Dont worry, dont be scared. There arent anymore Jason Todd Nightwing-monster-beasts, or crappy D-List villains. This is the Nightwing we should have been reading about for ages with the high caliber talent that is necessary for one of the oldest comic book characters in existence. But you know the saying; its better late than never. Read Full Review

    Which brings us back to why these RIP tie-ins were such lousy ideas to begin with. Grant Morrison's esoteric, outrageously bizarre epic is so distinctly his own that making other writers tie into it just seems downright foolish. I'd much rather if Tomasi's series, which has been chugging along brilliantly and gaining momentum ever since he took over the book, were free to do its own thing rather than try to add atmosphere to the RIP story.

    The story was as good as expected. The art was not as good as usual. The author is keeping the mystery going. Who was the sniper? Who is trying to kill Carol? I know I will be eagerly waiting for the next installment. Read Full Review

    It wasn't something that will make you want to run out and buy all of Tomasi's run, but I don't think fans of the book or character will hate it, so I'll leave it as a check it. Art was a little subpar this month though. Read Full Review
