    Man, this book was epic. Is this the single best issue of Nightwing I've ever read? Yes. The minor things I didn't like about this book, like the small fact that it really helps to read Batman to get the full impact, are something I can easily overlook because of the pure awesomeness of this issue.

    Man, this issue is what made everything worth it. Big revelations, great character moments, and great pay off, the future of this book is bright... well, maybe not for Dick, but for us, definitely. This was by far the best issue of the series, and I can't wait for more. Read Full Review

    Whereas previous Bat-crossovers have felt like Batman stories with a supporting cast squarely in the background, the creative team of "Nightwing" #7 has proven Dick won't be forgotten in the upcoming shuffle. Not only does issue #7 conclude the Saiko storyline as well as introduce "Night of the Owls," the final page instigates a new storyline and direction for our hero to explore, separate from Batman and the Court. The plot of "Nightwing" #7 accomplishes as much as any single issue possibly can, crafted and carried by beautiful artwork all the while. If you have been hesitant about this series to date, #7 is incredibly strong evidence this book is just hitting its stride. I have dipped in and out of "Nightwing" since the relaunch, but issue #7 just rocketed it to the top of my pull-list. Nothing short of a fantastic superhero comic book, "Nightwing" #7 is a turning point in more ways than one. Read Full Review

    It's been a long time coming getting to this final issue of Nightwing's first arc. This arc has had some great highs and some frustrating lows. Thankfully, issue #7 falls into the camp of the former. Now it's time to move on to the epic "Night of the Owls" crossover and here's hoping this series can remain at this level of quality.

    And is it just me or is that one rope directly over his crotch? Seems like somebody needed some extra restraints down there. Read Full Review

    As far as story content goes: you came for the Saiko saga, but what you get is a hardy portion of “Night of the Owls” set up. Sure, all the loose ends of the Saiko threat get tied up (mostly, you'll see on the last page…and it's good!) but what you'll really spend a lot of time discussing are the flashbacks and the loads of new info regarding the Owls. Answers that readers who only read “Batman” only got hints of. However, those folks who have only been reading “Batman” got the answer to the “Mystery of Haly's Circus” in today's “Batman” issue without having to read the 7-part Nightwing adventure. Also, if you already read “Batman” before picking this up, you'll probably get bored with the final few pages because, like I said, they're almost exactly the same. Same goes for if you read “Nightwing” before “Batman”, those final pages will feel repetitive. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 28, 2012

    We also get the same sequence of Batman knocking Dick's tooth out to prove a point as we did in Batman #7. It doesn't work any better here (in fact it works less because Saiko has already given him some of the information he seems shocked to hear from the Dark Knight Detective). Hit-and-Miss.
