After the events of Dark Crisis, Superman has a talk with Nightwing, letting him know that now is Dick’s time to lead…so Nightwing gathers a group of friends to be the premier league in the DC Universe and moves their base of operations to Blüdhaven. Meet the new Titans! Then, following the events of the Nightwing 2022 Annual and the Superman and Nightwing crossover, Nightwing continues to mentor Jon Kent in ways that Dick learned from being trained by Batman…but in his own more encouraging way.

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Feb 21, 2023

    Nightwing #101 runs straight into large, personal storylines that offer our hero the chance to flex multiple muscles, teases us with the titans before their new book drops in May and brings back Neron for nostalgia flair. Obviously, this is way above our hero's pay grade, so it will be great to see how he handles this threat versus, say, Batman. These two stories are going to be big. Come snag this issue and see just how devious they are. Read Full Review

    Nightwing #101 is fantastic. Buy it, read it, share it, and love it. Marvel's series, Fantastic Four, used to go out with the sub-heading "The World's Greatest Comics Magazine. In my humble opinion, Nightwing has inherited that crown and is wearing it with style. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Mar 1, 2023

    It's Titans Together once more as the new era for Bldhaven and ‘Nightwing' #101 begins with a bang, tying back to what has come before while also tapping into the same emotional and character energy that has made this run such a success already. Dick Grayson is a bit part of the heart of the DC Universe and this series continues to rest upon that fact as we get some pure great heroics as well as just great comic book fun. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 21, 2023

    It's great to see Dick working with Raven and Beast Boy again in particular, and I like seeing those two portrayed as competent adult heroes instead of being constantly reset back to their teen years. But this series continues to deliver, even as it maybe juggles a few too many plots. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Michael Guerrero Feb 21, 2023

    In the first chapter of this team-up arc, 'Nightwing' #101 carries two compelling stories that will keep readers on the edge of their seat for all the things yet to come. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 22, 2023

    Taylor and Moore have a solid story going that feels like it wouldnt be quite the same in any other genre. Its very, very difficult to put together a murder mystery story that fits the unique form and style of a superhero story, but Taylor and Moore have presented an entertaining premise that could work well for the next few issues of the series even if theyre not totally centered on the title character. Nightwing deserves a title more closely aligned with him. In time, things might line up for him in that fashion, but the 101st issue is spending a lot of time setting up conflicts for the future.  Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Feb 21, 2023

    Nightwing #101 works around the appearance of Jon Kent pretty effectively. The main story does a great job of setting the reader up for a heavy hitting confrontation for the Titans. The character work is great as usual, and it's a real joy to read them all interacting together. There's a big chunk of nostalgia with this, but what comes next promises to be great as well!

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Feb 21, 2023

    Nightwing #101 is a strong follow-up to the new direction Dick Grayson is taking as a pillar in the Dawn of DC. Connecting this story with Neron as the villain to how things ended with Blockbuster worked to transition us into a pilot for the upcoming Titans ongoing series. That along with a lot of great character interactions continue to show why Nightwing is one of DC Comics standout series. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Feb 21, 2023

    Nightwing #101 picks up where issue #98 left off with a plot by Lord Neron to steal Olvia Desmond's soul. The technical aspects of the writing (pacing, dialog, scene transitions) are solid, but the story needs more urgency and energy. However, the art team delivers a rock-solid performance.

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Feb 21, 2023

    Nightwing #101 plays it safe by delivering a decent set up to what could be a nice arc that examines Nightwing and his relationship to the Titans. Nonetheless, while the narrative is solid, there's little surprise in store and the competent art does little to spice things up. Tom Taylor's Nightwing is always a pleasant read, but longtime readers may be growing weary of the slightness of it all. Read Full Review
