    A wonderful celebration of 300 issues of Nightwing. Taylor's poignant story gives occasion to honour Dick Grayson's legacy whilst Conrad's backup brings a short, sharp burst of action. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Apr 16, 2024

    Action and expression are the keys to Nightwing #113 (aka legacy #300), helping to establish an installment with one foot in the past and future all at once. Taylor is joined by Wolfman in a celebration of Dick Grayson and his endless optimism. Illustrating Nightwings giving nature by contrasting it with his birthday is an excellent narrative frame that establishes a tension that feels low stakes. That allows for the escalation of the Heartless plot in the switch from Di Nicuolos action-oriented artwork to the quieter linework of Redondo. The artwork is bridged by the warm, comforting coloring by Lucas. Beyond a great celebration of the Nightwing character, issue #113 is a moving meditation on George Prez, an artist gone too soon and such an instrumental part of the industry. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 16, 2024

    This isn't just a tribute to Nightwing, but to the late, great George Perez, and while so many of these meta segments can feel hokey or even manipulative, this one is a brilliant tribute to the work these two legends did to turn Dick Grayson into one of the best characters in DC comics.

    Dark Knight News - Steve J Ray Apr 16, 2024

    I will approach the "Fallen Grayson storyline with excitement and sadness, as, for me, the run by Tom Taylor, Bruno, Redondo, Adriano Lucas, Wes Abbott, and all the wonderful guest writers and artists, has been the finest in the series' history. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Michael Guerrero Apr 16, 2024

    Overall, Nightwing #113 is a great issue that shows the importance of both Dick Grayson and Nightwing to everyone around him, including those who pick up his stories to connect with the hero. This comic carries many touching and heartfelt moments, that help to make an enjoyable story. Additionally, the return of Marv Wolfman is certainly a major highlight and carries the most heartfelt moment. That said, the setup for the finale arc of Taylor and Redondo certainly will have readers nervous about what's in store for Nightwing. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Apr 16, 2024

    Nightwing #113 is a phenomenal comic book to celebrate the character's 300th comic book issue. The chemistry Nightwing has with his cast is on full display. A touching scene between Dick Grayson and Marv Wolfman took this comic book to the next level. This is a must have for every Nightwing fan. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Apr 17, 2024

    This was a nice, cute and inconsequential installment of Nightwing for those looking for major developments. For Nightwing fans, it's still endearing and entertaining enough to enjoy. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Apr 16, 2024

    Nightwing #113 is a wonderful set up for the final Taylor/ Redondo arc. Taylor reinforces the focus on character and relationship (including some not mentioned above), but prepares the reader for what will surely be a massive encounter between Dick and Heartless. To top it off the issue is rounded out by a well conceived and beautifully illustrated story by Conrad and Porter, respectively. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Apr 15, 2024

    Well, is Nightwing #113 worth picking up? Possibly. This milestone issue is a collector's dream, packed with elements of nostalgia, action, and an unclear direction for Dick Grayson. With a stellar creative team and a focus on Nightwing's legacy, this issue is sure to be a satisfying read for long-time fans and new readers alike. However, as a fan interested in story progression and major plot development, you won't find that here. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Apr 20, 2024

    To celebrate the 300th issue, Taylor and his team just make a nice, heart-warming, fun Nightwing comic. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Aaron Ray Jr. Apr 16, 2024

    Overall, #113 feels like the calm within the eye of the storm. This was a fun and heartfelt issue, despite inconsistencies in the artwork and a few awkward choices. Nothing particularly damaging to the reading experience stands out. Marv and Redondo really did a good job giving himself and the character warm respects. Despite the pressure of making Heartless work, I think Taylor has laid the ground for what could be a decent finale. However, I take off massive points for the uselessly tacked-on “00:01” story.

    The Batman Universe - D.M. Grant Apr 17, 2024

    Overall, this issue is good. It's a suitable, if quiet, celebration of the character and a decent victory lap before the inevitable fall from grace. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Apr 19, 2024

    A good main story is encumbered by overly sentimental or utterly fluffy bonus material. There is a good comic in here, but the extras drag it down, instead of elevate the issue to truly being a celebration of the character's history. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Apr 16, 2024

    Nightwing #113 takes a break from doing nothing by delivering a celebration of Dick Grayson/Nightwing as the greatest person ever. If you're a fan of Nightwing and just want to feel good about how great he is, you're going to need a dentist from the sugary overload. For everyone else disappointed in this series' lack of direction, momentum, and purpose, this issue is the peak of disappointment. Read Full Review
