Nightwing continues to struggle with his recent woe--why can't he leap, and what's causing it? And Batman continues his investigation into it; is he any closer to figuring out the root of this new dilemma before there are some serious consequences? Plus, part two of the period saga! Around seven centuries ago, the Grayson name was born. A child of the Black Death. The story of revenge reaches its epic conclusion.

    Interestingly enough, Nightwing #112 is told from a character's POV that isn't Dick Grayson, but I think that's what makes it so good. We see how other viewers view the character, and they boost his worth up that way. Read Full Review

    Tom Taylor is wrapping up his run on Nightwing with the next arc, which will give him one of the longest and most defining runs on the character. So before he delves into the psychological block Dick has been dealing with, he's doing a short, much more character-driven arc that explores the complex bond Bruce and Dick have. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Michael Guerrero Mar 19, 2024

    Nightwing #112 is a strong issue that displays how successful Nightwing and Batman can be at working together when written as equals. Despite the continuing fear of heights Nightwing has, he still finds a way to stand out from Batman in all the best ways. Additionally, the backup story offers potential future connections to explore between Nightwing and one of DC's most villainous villains. Read Full Review

    Get Your Comic On - Neil Vagg Mar 19, 2024

    Ahead of his impending exit from Nightwing, Tom Taylor feels particularly contemplative as he explores the relationship between Dick and Bruce. The results are a heartfelt story which reminds us just why we fell in love with the former Boy Wonder. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Aaron Ray Jr. Mar 19, 2024

    Lucky for Tom Taylor, I really love the relationship Bruce has with his sons. Sometimes it feels like Batman doubts the positive influence in the lives of the boys he takes in. Stories like these remind me and readers like me that Batman is a still a great mentor. Also, there aren't many issues with Sam Basri's artwork. On the other hand, there are several convoluted issues and flaws with this story. For example, Loc's illogical plans are either sloppy or stupid. Enjoyment of these two issues will depend on how forgiving readers can be about the tragedy of the Khalid family. Otherwise, it's a simple heartwarming tale about a father's bond with a pointless backup. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - D.M. Grant Mar 20, 2024

    As it stands, Nightwing #112 is a classic comic book tale of yesteryear that's been overwritten to the point where the positivity and optimism run in the face of an otherwise great story. It's too overt. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Mar 21, 2024

    Nightwing #112 ends a two-part mystery with some heart, no Heartless, and a lot of filler. To be fair, Nightwing actually punches a bad guy, but this mystery is more predictable filler than anything else. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Mar 19, 2024

    Just sailing by is the current mood of Nightwing with issue #112, due to a lack of interest in exploring new avenues and missing creators. There is little on any storytelling front that helps to justify this narrative pitstop between the books endgame, and not even the art or coloring can save the story. The expressions and human emotion scene-to-scene works thanks to consistent pencils and gorgeous pops of coloring, but the action or investigation lacks any sense of momentum or heft. It is a shame that Nightwing, the title, has reverted to this sense of safe storytelling after delivering the strongest story in years. Read Full Review
