    This run of Nightwing has been better than my expectations and with the new status quo change stemming from the final page of this issue, the series seems poised for another great stretch so long as Taylor and Redondo stick around. Read Full Review

    DC Comics celebrates one-hundred issues of 'Nightwing' in style, finding a perfect way to bridge the past and present together in a story that is truly about creating a whole new bright future for the character and his allies.

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Jan 18, 2023

    Though we're just a couple months into 2023, it's not hard to imagine that Nightwing#100 is the single best issue of the year. It's that good. It's possible that this creative team may top themselves in the following eleven months, but this entry can easily win that prize. This has it all for Nightwing fans, and it also feels essential to the DC Universe. It demonstrates why Dick is so important to the DC Universe both inside continuity and for fans. It works on both levels and it brings all the emotion possible. Read Full Review

    This story is as good of an example as any to showcase two comic creators not only at the top of their own careers, but at the summit of the comics industry as a whole. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jan 17, 2023

    Tom Taylor's Nightwing run has all been building to thisa fifty-page jam issue bringing back many of the iconic artists from the character's decades-long history. But while the artists are celebrating many different runs, this is all Taylor, wrapping up many of the stories he has been building since the first issue of his story. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - D.M. Grant Jan 18, 2023

    This is solid, with no qualms or fat to bring down any enjoyment. The respect towards the past was perfectly presented without feeling performative, and it worked wonderfully in the ongoing Nightwing saga that Taylor and friends have been crafting. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jan 17, 2023

    Nightwing #100 is an excellent celebration issue. Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo make great use of all the developments in their run to enhance what Nightwing's status quo is in the post-Dark Crisis On Infinite Earths DC Universe. Scott McDaniel, Rick Leonardi, Eddy Barrows, Javier Fernandez, and Mikel Janin all also providing artwork for Nightwing #100 made this an even more special celebration comic book. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Jan 17, 2023

    A round of applause for every artist, inker, Lucas, and Abbott on page after page of smooth art and daring colors, with moody inks hitting the correct times. Solid wording and lettering, expert characterizations, some bold choices in storytelling, and a lot to look forward to! Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jan 20, 2023

    The new direction for Grayson is actually a really cool progression for the character that honors where hes been while looking forward to his future. The weight of the issue seems thrown in too many directions to be totally satisfying all the way through, though. Had there been more lead into the big change, it would have made for a much more satisfying 100th issue. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Jan 17, 2023

    As a 100th issue goes, I was expecting more, especially from the art team. Sure, the stronger artists were on the more important parts. Nevertheless, the illustrations coupled with the story to begin the issue made Nightwing #100 hard to comb through. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 18, 2023

    Nightwing #100 will certainly be lauded by fans of the series but remains frustrating to those looking for more plot progression and overall story.  Even with a ton of artists involved, the book looks pretty damn good, and I can easily recommend it.  Just don't go in thinking that a lot of things will be resolved and you'll be fine.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jan 23, 2023

    Celebrating 100 issues for the character's solo run, Nightwing #100 features Nightwing and his pals the Titans dealing with Heartless' prison break in Bludhaven leading to hundreds of people (both super-powered criminals and normal people held for an inability to pay bail) released on the streets.

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Jan 17, 2023

    Nightwing #100 is an appropriately reverent issue that capably displays Dick Grayson's inherent goodness, while also delivering a heavy dose of action. The main narrative implications are thin, though Heartless and Tony Zucco's team up is ripe for drama. However, the arrival of the Titans will be the main barometer of whether or not the issue and the series' new direction is appealing. The spectacle and heart warming moments work their magic, but there's a lack of nuance to how Nightwing's next stage for Bldhaven plays out. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jan 16, 2023

    Nightwing #100 is an embarrassing waste of a milestone comic. Multiple artists give the comic a cobbled-together visual aesthetic, Nightwing's neverending conflict with Heartless goes nowhere, and Nightwing is offered a job with no apparent purpose. Read Full Review
