Cyber-Punks, street bikes and machine guns are just the beginning of Dick Grayson's troubles. The coming times will be the most definitive epoch in Dick Grayson's history since he donned the mantle of Nightwing!

    The book opens with a fairly impressive bit of action, as Nightwing tests out his new motorcycle by racing around on the rooftops of Bludhaven, while doing battle with a ruthless band of thugs. Now the fight is a fairly high energy affair that acts as a nice introduction to the book's newest artist, and while Nightwing never looks to be in any real danger, it's an interesting battle that plays up a nice sense of speed, plus the idea that these characters can fall off these rooftops that are racing around upon.

    Dramatic changes in the status quo plus subplots that move at a glacial pace does not equal success, so its no surprise I didnt like this issue all that much. Hell, even the main plot (Nightwings dealings with the new Tarantula) hasnt moved all that much and Id say thats more than a little frustrating. Im still waiting for Grayson to wow me, and shes been on the title for over a year. Any way you look at it, thats not good. Read Full Review
