    Get Your Comic On - Neil Vagg May 21, 2024

    The final arc begins in fine style with Taylor challenging Dick at every turn. Whilst on one side he seeks to conquer his fears, on the other side we're seeing the beginnings of what feels like an insurmountable final battle which lies ahead. Read Full Review

    With Nightwing #114, we're given breadcrumbs and teasers aplenty, so, while I'm sad that this five-issue tale will be this stellar creative team's last, I can't wait to see where it will take us. Read Full Review

    Nightwing #114 is a great start to the final arc of Taylor and Redondo's soaring run, bringing together the outstanding plotlines of the Pennyworth Foundation, the mysteries of Heartless, and the sudden fear plaguing Dick Grayson. Taylor's scripting splits the book into four storylines that all exist as compelling tales but shortchange the most compelling one. Read Full Review

    With the return of Bruno Redondo, this book is a return to the title's best issues, and I cannot wait for more. Hopefully this arc sticks the landing. Read Full Review

    A few of the scenes this issue feel a bit like a repeat from last issueanother gala?but it leads to some great scenes with Bruce and especially Damian. I love when writers remember that these two are potentially even closer than Bruce and Damian. Read Full Review

    The double-edged sword of telling the story you've always wanted to tell is making it work. Overall, the first part of Taylor and Redondo's big finale is living up to the hype. Unfortunately, oftentimes that means the fall can be far worse. My advice is be careful. If you tell readers you will challenge their hero to their boiling point, then you better turn up the heat as often as you can. In my opinion, Taylor has set up the supervillain wanna-be Heartless very well, but what matters more is what he does from this point on. Redondo and Lucas make a great team and makes Nightwing feel like the A-lister they want him to be. So, for argument's sake, let's start high and see if you can keep it up. Read Full Review

    This wasn't the most electric installment of Nightwing, but this marked an intriguing opening act of Fallen Grayson. So far so good for the creative team's final bow. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd May 21, 2024

    Nightwing #114 is a solid start to Taylor and Redondo's final story arc. It includes many of the elements that have made their run successful over the past three years. Redondo is in fine form as he returns to the title and the story points towards a big wrap up for what comes across as a longform graphic novel. Read Full Review

    Nightwing #114 is a standout issue, showcasing the exceptional synergy between Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo. The blend of psychological depth, high-stakes action, and stunning visuals makes this a memorable chapter in the Nightwing series. The creative team's ability to balance Dick Grayson's personal struggles with the overarching conflict results in a compelling and emotionally resonant narrative. Read Full Review

    First issue of the final story doesn't bring a lot new to the table, but does at least kick off the next big superhero scuffle. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 21, 2024

    Nightwing #114 was pure set-up for what the "Fallen Grayson will be about. This set-up was especially needed to establish Heartless as the endgame villain for Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo's final story arc in their creative run. All of the developments did their job in getting over what this story will be about. Now hopefully the remaining chapters will focus on moving forward in the present rather than stuck in the past with more flashbacks. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez May 23, 2024

    Nightwing #114 begins the long-overdue arc to finally stop Heartless. Sadly, the issue is peppered with silly setups, unexplained happenings (How do you lose your leap?), and mediocre art, especially in the coloring. Read Full Review
