    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

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

    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

    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

    While the tribute with other artists lasted, it was good, then it became Tom Taylor again, and I can't stand him giving speeches anymore.

    Is Nightwing having it too easy? Yes, it's good to see the hero winning. But he has become too good for the stories to stay interesting. He talks down criminals, he has a ton of allies, everyone but Heartless bows before him with ease. It's almost like he's won and the series can just end because there are no challenges. This has been an excellent comic over all, the best Nightwing we've had since Dixon. But there just isn't any tension, any suspense. And it didn't help that Heartless just vanished from the story or that he's not as engaging as Blockbuster.

    Still, it's always fun to spend time with Dick and Babs and Haley. But will Taylor find things for Dick to do in both this comic and Titans?

    Overall, I was disappointed. There was no follow up to last month's mystery, no confrontation with Heartless, no NML style jail battle. I'm not thrilled with the end, but knew it was coming. The art changes were jarring to me, even if some of the spreads were individually very nice. There were some nice character moments too; I just expected more from this milestone.

    I've loved Taylors Nightwing for quite a while so it pains me to see this so called milestone issue drop the ball. There are some really great moments in this issue but they all seem to be overshadowed by how haughty the narrative is. It seems like the whole issue is Taylor standing on a soap box preaching at the reader. It reminds me of why I really didn't like his John Kent comic. The inconsistent art really hurts the book and the Heartless story CONTINUES to draggggggg on. Overall I can't say this was good, it's just passable.

    Dick Grayson is not allowed to become an actual adult in DC Comics, and is caught in this absurd time bubble as a endless "Young Adult." It is ridiculous. And how long will "The Titans" reboot sell, until DC Comics has to invent a "crisis" bandaid to cover up this latest screw-up. 12 years ago, in 2011, Dick Grayson led the Justice League AND the Justice Society of America -- as BATMAN. He was "grown up." I hate to see Dick Grayson going backwards to 21-year-old - I am so uncertain of myself YA character - I mean, come on - he has been a YA for 50+ years. At what point does Dick Grayson get an actual costume besides a jumpsuit, and a mask besides a domino mask? "It's a big ask." No it is not, Dick already led the JLA and JSA. Let Dick Gra more

    Redundante como un disco rayado que suele ser una constante en este escritor aburrido a morir e infantil pero no lo suficiente para hacerlo un libro de menores de 13 en resumen un desastre

    The only redeeming quality of this book is the interaction Dick has with Bruce. Other than that, this book is a shit show. The only reason this seems to exist is because Tom Taylor wants to make a statement about the prison system. He mentions multiple times that prisons are filled with innocent people and the only reason for a prison is to make money. I love when writers make statements about things they don't understand. Did he not just hear the story about the charity Danny Glover is a part of? This is recent. The charity pays bail for people who can't afford them. They paid bail for a person that had been arrested, once he was out on the streets, he committed additional crimes, including beating a clerk so severely that he was put in th more
