    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Dec 8, 2016

    I like where this is going. Tim Seeley has had a pretty deft hand with Nightwing already, and this just further proves he knows how to write the character. There are enough new elements that it feels fresh, yet the story never comes off like an info dump. This is a logical progression from what came before, building on the previous arcs and series to help shape Dick into a hero all his own. I loved the pacing, the writing, the art, the colors, pretty much everything about this issue. Forget visiting; while it may have a scary name, Bldhaven is shaping up to be a pretty nice place to stay. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Tyler Harris Dec 9, 2016

    These small complaints aside, this issue was a solid start to the Bldhaven arc and I am very excited to see where Seeley and To take it over the next four issues. Read Full Review

    Over all, this comic points Nightwing in a familiar direction; a direction that feels more like a homecoming than a fresh start. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - David Finn Dec 8, 2016

    I'm giving this book a solid four and a half stars and it definitely is my personal favorite in the Nightwing series to this point. Never a weak title, but perhaps an aimless one, a course correction has left this series in an immediately better place than issues prior. And side note, look out for Dixon Park! A delightful little nod to a former creator who certainly was a huge cornerstone of the character in the 90's and a nice touch as Nightwing comes back to a place he made his own. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Dec 7, 2016

    Seeley isn't reinventing anything here with Nightwing, but getting the character back to his old stomping grounds bodes well for the future direction of the title. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 7, 2016

    Nightwing #10 is a perfect first issue to a story arc that adds new complexities to Nightwing's life whilst capturing his inner conflicts well. Bldhaven is ripe with new stories and this issue introduces a unique one I'll be keeping a close eye on. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 10, 2016

    Nightwing Rebirth is finally finding its footing in a way I'm excited about. Putting Dick Grayson back in Bludhaven definitely feels like pandering to old fans, but I'm confident Seeley and his team know what they're doing with the character and the city. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Lu Dec 7, 2016

    Ultimately, I think Nightwing #10 is a strong start to a new chapter in Dick Grayson's life, though I wish it were illustrated with more care. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Brandon Reid Dec 7, 2016

    I really enjoyed the story in this issue. It worked as agood introduction to this story arc showing us how Dick plans on going abouthis life in Bludhaven as well as what kind of city Bludhaven really is. Theonly thing that I wasn't a fan of was the art in any scene that took placeduring the day. The colors were boring and detail was nowhere to be found. Thenight scene panels were better though, especially the first page with Robin andBatgirl on the rooftop and the last few pages with Nightwing. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - William Evans Dec 6, 2016

    Nightwing is back in Bludhaven (for the first Rebirth time) with a little mystery to kick things off for him. The intrigue is there to see how our hero explores his new home and sees what is lurking beneath the surface. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Eammon Jacobs Dec 22, 2016

    Nightwing #10 does play to some of it's strengths, using his humour and light hearted approach to vigilantism across the issue. So it does manage to be entertaining. But we did expect a little more given how thrilling the start of the Nightwing Rebirth run was. Luckily the end of the issue grabbed us, because it was extremely slow getting started. Hopefully the shaky start was just the set up to get it going, and the rest of the series will prove us wrong. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Andrew Fontana Dec 7, 2016

    The rest of issue stumbles a bit when it's not focused on Dick's characterization. We get presented with the bare bones of a murder mystery that is less exciting than the issue's character moments. It's possible that Seeley will give the storyline more oomph in succeeding issues, but currently there isn't enough to be excited for Marcus To's pencils and Sotomayor's colors infuse the proceedings with vibrancy and life. The art is equally adept shifting from brightly lit interiors to the dimness of Gotham and Bludhaven. The few action scenes present are fluid and clear. To especially excels at crafting unique facial expressions, giving each of his characters reactions that are appropriate to them. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Dec 7, 2016

    Yeah, I haven't really enjoyed this series so far, but I find myself hopeful with this issue about what it will become now that Nightwing is in Bludhaven again.  I like the setup and find myself eager to get to the next issue and that's new for me here.  The art is better than it's been in this series and Tim Seeley might have just pulled me back into the world of Nightwing with this issue.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Dec 11, 2016

    Nightwing #10 was a strong introduction to the new version of Bludhaven that is located in this DC Universe. Tim Seeley lays the groundwork for a city brimmed with opportunity to become Nightwing's new stomping grounds outside of Gotham City. The issue is hurt by how the supporting cast we've been introduced to so far were portrayed. Even with that slight disappointment Seeley writing along with Marcus To's visually appealing artwork makes Nightwing #10 a worthwhile read for fans of Dick Grayson. Read Full Review
