    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Feb 20, 2024

    Nightwing #111 feels like a return of sort. The plot gets back to Heartless which brings the reader back to where Tom Taylor's run began back with Nightwing #78. Perhaps, Taylor has moved past the events which have been interrupting the DC Universe and Dick Grayson will soon face off against Heartless in a definitive if not final confrontation.

    Batman-News - Aaron Ray Jr. Feb 20, 2024

    Archie Goodwin really cracked this kind of story wide open with Batman: The Night Cries, and now I see its influence in everything. It even opens with a similar prose about “a scream” in Gotham. Taylor's story isn't nearly as deep nor focused as that, but this is a much needed change of pace for Nightwing. Most importantly, I appreciate all of the check up Batman does with the family after whatever Gotham War did to his family. Overall, this story is pretty transparent, but I still like it for the most part. Also, there is nothing new I can say about Sam Basri's consistently decent work on Nightwing. In order for this story to stand out more, Taylor would need to really do his best on part two. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Feb 20, 2024

    Nightwing #111 marks the beginning of the end for Heartless and Tom Taylor's time on the title, but the final arc starts with a bait-and-switch that drags the Heartless reign even longer and makes Nightwing look like a less competent detective than he should be. If nothing else, at least Heartless and Taylor will soon be gone. Read Full Review
