    Nightwing #115 is a triumph, even though the heart-stopping cliffhanger has left me scared and anxious. There's a lot of story to wrap up in chapters three to five and I can't wait. Read Full Review

    Heartless' master plan is pretty insidious setting up a serious cliffhanger as Fallen Grayson part 2 delivers another excellent installment. Read Full Review

    Nightwing #115 could easily be ruined by spoilers. This tension ratchets up and it's the best issue of this series in a while. If Nightwing #114 calmly set things up, #115 puts things into high gear with Heartless' plot revealed leaving Dick in a really sticky situation. This final arc by Taylor and Redondo is now rolling and appears that it will not disappoint. Read Full Review

    Bruno Redondo's art continues to be excellent, and it's interesting how this book has neatly worked in Boss Zucco as the behind-the-scenes villain for much of itthis is, obviously, the first enemy Dick ever had. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Jun 20, 2024

    Nightwing #115 is an interesting continuation of the runs conclusion, focusing on the recent past as a way to streamline this leg of the narrative journey. Taylors script creates a strong sense of a lean narrative track that gets out of its own, letting the story and its twist unfold in a way that feels organic at the end of every page. Rendo and Filipes artwork takes the efficiency baton, delivering an issue full of fast-moving action beats and blocking built around making every sequence crystal clear. By doing so, Graysons unmasking unfolds without any resistance. Lucass coloring underlines that fact by reinforcing the thematic elements and nudging readers through stylized palettes. This might not be the best issue for beginners to jump into, but speaks to the growth and refinement of style that will encapsulate the larger run. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Aaron Ray Jr. Jun 18, 2024

    Not much happens in this issue, but it was a pleasure to read. On a positive note, I appreciate the thematic parallels Taylor uses to harken back to the beginning of this storyline. Specifically, visual symmetry like the repeated use of fire to a metaphorical choice like framing Grayson again, makes this feel full circle. Even if Shelton's plan is a bit too basic, there is enough to suggest quite a bit of thought went into this plan. However, something like this going off in Gotham without Batman's signature paranoia kicking in is extremely unrealistic. Still, part two does an effective job of setting up the destruction of Grayson's name and still has my attention for now. Read Full Review

  • 7.0 - Jenna Anderson Jun 19, 2024

    While Nightwing #115 is yet another display of pure artistry, its push towards a grander narrative accidentally calls into question Dick's elevated status as a brilliant and capable superhero. It will surely be fun to see how Dick gets himself out of this predicament as Taylor and Redondo's time on Nightwing draws to a close, but this frantic middle installment unfortunately deflates some tension.

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jun 18, 2024

    Nightwing #115 finally shows Tom Taylor getting his butt in gear to bring the long-ignored Heartless arc to a close. The setup mostly makes sense, but only if the world's greatest detective ignores all the warning signs around him, and the art would be top-notch if it wasn't brought down by harsh, ugly coloring.
