    As a storyteller, Higgins' strength is that he's determined to give you your money's worth. In a medium dependent on the serial format, it's easy to feel unsatisfied by the brevity of comic books, but not so with this installment of Nightwing. Higgins lets the story unravel as he builds the world of Chicago's dark underbelly piece by piece, showing us the problematic machinations of its politicians, media, and costumed anti-heroes.

    Following The Nerd - Sarah Barclay Jul 12, 2013

    This storyline just keeps getting better and better and I can't wait to see how everything turns out. I mean, at this point, who's more screwed: Nightwing, the citizens of Chicago or the imprisoned cops? Read Full Review

    Other than a few awkward facial expressions here and there, the artwork is relatively consistent and doesn't detract from the book at all. But I'll be the first to admit that I was slightly ticked off when I opened up the book and saw that one of my favorite artists was no longer drawing one of my favorite characters. Read Full Review

    A solid issue that managed to escalate the plot suddenly yet in a way that added that flare or intensity that it needed. It's safe to say that we might be hitting the climax of this story and it hasn't disappointed yet. Hopefully that remains the verdict till the end of this arc because it's is a nice change-up from what we are used to which is what this whole storyline seems to impose. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Jul 10, 2013

    Though there are hiccups this month, I don't know that I've ever felt more justified in being a fan of Nightwing than I am now. Higgins just keeps improving, mixing a much-needed sense of fun into a solid super-crime plot and Conrad shows promise. Nightwing #22 is the turning point of a great arc that may well be remembered as the turning point of this series. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Daniel Gehen Jul 12, 2013

    A change in artists cant stop the Nightwing train. Will Conrad delivers a great debut issue, and Kyle Higgins continues his mastery of the former Boy Wonder. Nightwing continues to be one DC title that everyone should be reading. Read Full Review

    Worry not! Will Conrad delivered some great artwork and Kyle Higgins still has the story on track. It's a slower issue than the previous chapters, but those who stick with it will be rewarded in the end with some of the biggest action that Dick Grayson has seen so far. Read Full Review

    Gotham Spoilers - Gotham Spoilers Jul 10, 2013

    This Chicago arc continues to be a lot of fun, and we just reached the tipping point, where all hell is sure to break loose in the coming issues. This issue continued to give us a fun and entertaining Dick Grayson to read, but also reminded him that there's always going to be consequences to his actions, mainly those he took against the Prankster. The only thing I was left wanting more of is some insight to the backstory that has been teased these past few issues, but when the A plot is as fun as it currently is, I'm willing to let that one slide a bit.

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Jul 10, 2013

    It's another issue of NIGHTWING that delivers a fun and suspenseful story. I'm very excited to read this arc all in one sitting, even though it's great issue to issue. Will Conrad takes over and art and really delivers a great piece, except for some of the establishing shots of the city. Higgins is setting up an epic face-off between Nightwing and Prankster, who is becoming a fantastic villain. This current story is one of the best NIGHTWING runs in years. This is a book you should be reading. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jul 15, 2013

    "Nightwing" #22 feels like this is a series that's on track, and that is using its shift to a new locale well. Higgins and Conrad have given us a fun comic that works well both individually as well as part of a greater whole. Ultimately, this is how a monthly series should work. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Aaron Duran Jul 11, 2013

    Kyle Higgins clearly has some love for Nightwing and the direction he's taking him is interesting. Yet, for a character that's always been about living on the tightrope, the pacing of issue #22 is a little lacking. Read Full Review
