    This was my favorite issue of the new Nightwing. Hopefully, Seeley's cliffhanger tease doesn't ruin all the good will this issue earned. It deserves more than a clich payoff. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Feb 15, 2017

    I guess the finale of this issue sets up the next arc, but reading this issue is pure enjoyment of great story telling. Even if you think that Babs and Dick belong together, you cannot deny how well this issue is executed. This issue also serves as a great jumping on point for readers. Everything is right about this issue, except for Babs and Dick not being together, but even then, the Dick/Shawn relationship is presented so impeccably, one can't help but feel for them both.

    Dark Knight News - Tyler Harris Feb 17, 2017

    Seeley really stuck the landing with this “Bldhaven” epilogue issue. The execution was some of the best that I've seen in recent times and the set-up for the next arc felt meaningful and not shoe-horned in. I am undoubtedly more excited than ever to see what comes next from Seeley and his team. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - David Finn Feb 16, 2017

    I'm giving this four and a half stars because on top of another solid issue, the romance trappings and the clever use of storytelling combined with emotional, expressive art makes this a comic to remember. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - William Evans Feb 15, 2017

    Of course, this is a superhero book and as you can imagine, not everything is roses and swinging through open windows, so the book does lead us to the next arc for Nightwing, which will of course having him squaring off with some villain. But this book as a standalone story was unique and lighthearted and needed for any kind of book where the hero is usually in peril. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 15, 2017

    Low on action, high on love and relationship building, this is the perfect Valentine's Day comic. Tim Seeley and Jung handle Dick's love life in a very respectful and adult way that builds this character even further and reminding us he's not a kid anymore. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Feb 20, 2017

    Nightwing #15 is an excellent standalone story that effectively makes us care for Dick Grayson and Shawn Tsang's relationship. Tim Seeley is able to tell a complete story that makes the progression of the relationship come off as natural. Bringing in members of the Batman and Titans Families help further how strong Dick and Shawn's relationship is becoming. This all helps make the future of Nightwing's ongoing something you want to continue read, especially with how this issue ends. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Brandon Reid Feb 15, 2017

    Great story especially since it was an epilogue like a I mentioned earlier. But the writing was well done, the art was better than it has been and the ending just makes me want the next issue to come out faster! Another great thing about this issue is all the conversations Dick has with the members of the Bat family. We really see how much of an impact Dick has had on everyone's lives and how important he is to everyone. Love it. Read Full Review

    It seems that the Bludhaven arch was all building up to something bigger, with major implications for Dick's future. I for one am very excited. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Feb 15, 2017

    We've got a low key issue with Nightwing this week........ and man, I love the hell out of it.  We get a chance to breath after our hero solved the Run-Off conspiracy last issue and take a look into Dick's love life for better or worse.  I thought this was really well told and the art is probably the best it's looked since this series began and that's something for how much I liked the look of the previous arc.   Read Full Review

    Nerdophiles - Jackson Adams Feb 22, 2017

    Still, Nightwing #15 feels like a rounded portrayal of the new relationship between two characters, still unsure of where they stand with one another. However, it's also a testament to Dick's ability to connect with people and a tour through his many friends, from Wally West, to Jason Todd, to Starfire, to Barbara Gordon, to Bruce Wayne. DC has done a better job in the last year of really embracing characters who have that sort of built in history and getting to see that play out is still as charming as it has ever been here. If anything, that's a good enough reason to pick up this issue. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Feb 15, 2017

    A nice little character piece that just makes me wish we could get more one-and-done stories in comics. The characters and dialogue are solid, the art is great, and there's enough here to set up future stories without feeling like a part of an incomplete whole. Were there stylistic choices made that I wouldn't have done? Sure. Is it still evident that Seeley knows how to write Nightwing and his world? Absolutely. Read Full Review
