The issue also introduces us to Dick's new partner, and while I'm a bit concerned that this idea might venture into "after-school special" terrain, I have faith in Devin Grayson's abilities to insert a homosexual character into the book who will act as more than simply a way to deliver a powerful, headline grabbing message. As for the plot involving Nightwing & the new vigilante on the block, it doesn't do anything too surprising, but then again it was interesting enough to hold my Read Full Review
