    Kyle Higgins delivers a lighter issue. It is a reflection on the relationship between Gordon and Grayson, and he hits every beat of the comic. Trevor McCarthy does a great job filling in for Eddy Barrows. If Barrows decided to leave at some point which I hope he does not, I would not mind McCarthy taking over art duties; a solid issue overall. Read Full Review

    This book is doing its job in that it's making me want to pick it up week after week. There's a nice balance between action and drama that doesn't make me tire of either, and seeing Dick grow as a person endears me to the character. Read Full Review

    Overall this was a good issue, a great way to catapult into the next arc as well as giving new meaning to both Dick and Barbara's life. But, as much as IappreciatedHiggins bringing in a new love life for Dick, with this much sexual tension building up with all the Bat-titles, I suspect Dick and Babs aren't entirely done with each other.

    IGN - Erik Norris Dec 21, 2011

    As I've said before, Dick Grayson might be out of the spotlight as Gotham City's Dark Knight, but that doesn't mean his latest series isn't worth following. Nightwing remains a solid book spearheaded by a writer who seems to know and understand the character inside and out. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Dec 22, 2011

    The main story, that of Dick Grayson assuming new responsibilities and continuing to grow as a person, presses on. It's good to see this series take a brief detour without completely derailing the series. With the setting of a circus, there are no limits to where Nightwing can go, who he can meet, or how long he'll be there. Quite simply, this is a continually fun read from DC that has a great deal of stories left to share. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Dec 27, 2011

    Artist Trevor McCarthy throughout creates an ebullient sense of friendship flourishing in the face of crimefighting. Babs and Dick are youthful and energetic throughout. McCarthy equivocates their athleticism, and when the characters are out of uniform, McCarthy creates body language that suggests an easygoing relationship. Frequently, his work reminds one of Brian Stelfreeze's illustration, and Guy Major's colors evoke a wonderful night-time playground set off by purples, Nightwing's reds and Batgirl's gold and scarlet. You know, I never thought I'd say this, but I might just try the next issue of Nightwing. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Dec 28, 2011

    Better art and a solid guest spot by Batgirl makes for a much stronger read than before, but since both are temporary features, I still can't say I'm interested enough in the usual material to keep up with the series in the long-run. Dropped. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 28, 2011

    The part of the story that does work is the effect Babs arrival has on Dick and Raya‘s burgeoning relationship. Even when trying to put things right at the end, Babs causes even more harm. Women. Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review
