    Great issue.The story was awesome and the art wasn't amazing, but definitely a step up fromlast issue. I like how Nightwing is trying so hard to get away from Gotham butno matter what it's impossible for him to do so. We see a bit of a patterngoing on with the murders which I found very enjoyable. There's a bit of amystery aspect and I've always been a fan of that. Art wise, the color schemewas a lot better as well as the characters' detail. It may just be growing onme I don't know. But I do know I look forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    With Seeley's humanizing characterization and To's naturalistic art, NIGHTWING #11 presents another slam-dunk tale of the former Robin and his quest to be his own unique brand of hero. This is Dick Grayson at his most relatable, Dick Grayson as the quintessential wish-fulfilment hero. Batman and Superman are the heroes we want to be. Nightwing is the hero we are inside.

    Nightwing #11 continues to develop the story lines introduced last issue with some surprises along the way. Bldhaven appears to be a place that Dick will not only come to call home, but be a bottomless source of interesting and challenging conflict. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - William Evans Dec 21, 2016

    Nightwing is still a fun book, but it is exploring Grayson in a refreshing, self-effacing way that makes the character a little more three-dimensional. He is now fully immersed in Bldhave, for better or worse. Probably the latter. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Dec 21, 2016

    While the artwork could be tighter, this was another solid issue for Nightwing's back to basics approach. There's some exciting potential with this title and it'll be fun seeing where Seeley continues to take it. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 24, 2016

    I'm definitely feeling jazzed about Nightwing now. This is what I was waiting for. Seeley dives into his new Bludhaven idea with gusto, building up an interesting world around Nightwing, while keeping him the definite center of attention. Flashbacks to his time as Robin, and how they effect him now as an adult, are definitely welcome. And Seeley does a lot with Dick's detective work. Who doesn't love it when the Bat characters actually fulfill their roles as detectives? With a great art team behind him, Seeley starts spreading his wings in Bludhaven and I'm definitely on board at long last with this comic. Keep up the good work, keep up the new and interesting characters, keep Nightwing and Dick Grayson on a fun path. And by all means, I'd love to see more of Dick trying to discover himself.

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Dec 21, 2016

    Nightwing continues to be the most consistently excellent Bat-book on the stands, I'd gather. There's yet to be a true stinker yet, even going back to the crossover a few months ago, and Seeley and crew keep hurdling the already high bar they've set for themselves. With a brilliant concept in reforming forgotten villains and the built-in appeal of Nightwing himself, the return to Bldhaven is already paying great dividends. Even if I wish there was maybe a tad more attention paid to Dick in his own book, the strength of the product as a whole more than makes up for what few shortcomings there are. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - David Finn Dec 22, 2016

    The word to describe this Nightwing run to this point is solid and improvising in character depth and I'm happy to award another four stars to this issue. Hop on fast kids, the fun is just starting on this title. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Dec 22, 2016

    Of COURSE there's a support group for villains formerly thumped by Nightwing. It's as Nightwing a plot point as we could hope to get, and serves as another example as to how great Tim Seeley is for the character. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 21, 2016

    Nightwing #11 is a fine issue for lovers of character development. Tim Seeley introduces a slew of new characters that add a unique angle to the usually flat villain types. Bldhaven is turning out to be a certifiable playground of story ideas. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Dec 21, 2016

    This title continues to impress me now that we have our hero in Bludhaven because not only does it take a lighter tone, even with a murder mystery going on, but it finally feels like we're getting Nightwing here and with the bonus of having some excellent art to accompany that feeling, I look forward to as much Nightwing as I can get at this point.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Dec 26, 2016

    Nightwing #11 was a strong world building issue. Tim Seeley once again shows off his understand of who Nightwing is in and out of his costume. The backstory the Run-Offs receive work well in complementing why Nightwing moved to Bludhaven in the first place. Seeley also creates enough obstacles for Nightwing to overcome that make his first case in his new city interesting to follow. As long as Seeley can find a way to balance the personal and superhero life Dick Grayson leads, this series will only be getting better moving forward. Read Full Review
