Sail the high seas with Nightwing and Batgirl as they journey across the ocean in search of the Hold’s secret society that dates back to when Blüdhaven was founded. We saw previously in Nightwing #99 that the Hold’s vault held several safes…and here we’ll find out there has always been one left for Nightwing.

    Tom Taylor just broke my brain with this one. At one point I audibly screamed: "You're a liar! As someone who truly believed the Nightwing series should have completely reset with the current run, I am both stunned and excited to see Taylor explore more elements from the Dan Jurgens era.

    I had no clue where this series was going to go once it returned from a Knight Terrors hiatus, but I can tell you I did not expect thisa call-back to one of the most divisive Nightwing runs of all time, the "Ric Grayson era where a brain-damaged, amnesiac Nightwing worked as a taxi driver while estranged from the Bat-family.

    Nightwing is one of the best comics being made today. The creative talent it attracts, the stories it tells, and the artwork it showcases are amongst the best you'll see anywhere. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Seth A. Romo Sep 19, 2023

    As a new entry to the series, this issue is fresh and another fun adventure for Nightwing. Fans of the series will be glad to see a change in story to keep the overall pacing fresh. For me personally, pirates can be a fun spin to a character and having a pirate themed side quest for Nightwing is such a cool idea. Be sure to pick up this issueespecially since it releases on the fitting, Talk Like a Pirate Day. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 20, 2023

    Nightwing #106 accomplishes many things. It contains the best story angle for the Ric Grayson saga with how it leads into a greater pirate adventure. The bigger storyline involving Heartless and Tony Zucco is progressed. And we get the best Batgirls story in over a year. Combining all that together Nightwing #106 does everything to get fans excited for what comes next. Read Full Review

    Taylor heads back to the days of Nightwing's previous creative team with this new arc, bringing characters and lingering plot threads from then and pushing them into the spotlight here. It's a risk brining much of that stuff back given how stale it ran, but let's see what this new team can with it. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Sep 19, 2023

    Nightwing #106 is a great start to a new story arc with a balanced approach between plot and character. This issue continues to prove why this comic continues to be one of DC's best. Hopefully, this will be the start of an uninterrupted run of tales. As Dick says in this issue, "We've had a lot going on. But, it's finally time to askWhat's in the box? Read Full Review

    Get Your Comic On - Neil Vagg Sep 19, 2023

    An intriguing start to the latest arc of Nightwing. Taylor appears to be taking the series in an interesting new direction following previous, more grounded stories. Ever unpredictable, I'm interested to see where this goes next. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Sep 19, 2023

    Overall, Nightwing #106 isn't an awful issue. Plus, it's hard to regain momentum after stopping dead in our tracks for Knight Terrors. Nevertheless, there simply appears to be very little substance this week as Taylor appears to be reaching for a killer plot thread that just needs more. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Aaron Ray Jr. Sep 19, 2023

    Nightwing is a decent book. Taylor and Stephen Byrne make a good team that tells filled stories with clean, readable illustrations. The mystery of the Hold and its preternatural atmosphere gives Nightwing a unique witchy, Salem-like tone we haven't seen very often. The actual group of pirate themed bankers haven't lived up to the hype, which could be a side effect of the “Worf effect” backfiring. In addition, I think Heartless has a lot to prove as an antagonist as well. Although this pirate adventure is off to a rocky start, I'm looking forward to seeing where things go. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Sep 19, 2023

    Nightwing #106 wakes up a nine-month-old plot thread to find out what's in Nightwing's mysterious safety deposit box, leading to car chases, more unanswered murders by Heartless, and pirates(?). The story is fine, the art's fine, and at best, you could say Taylor is wrapping up a plot point that should have been wrapped up long ago. Read Full Review
