    The stakes are getting higher, Dick is teamed up with Damian, Nightwing's New 52 suit returns in an unexpected but thrilling way, and I couldn't be more excited for the next issue. Crossing my fingers that Seeley & crew keep up the momentum built up with this issue, because this arc has some serious potential and could be what marks Tim Seeley as a trademark Nightwing author in my book.

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 1, 2017

    Nightwing #16 is excellent issue and a great beginning to a new story arc. Tim Seeley is on fire with this series as it's well paced, well written, and feels incredibly fresh. It even manages to make the hero fighting hero element interesting! Nightwing is the character drama you never knew you needed! Read Full Review

    ConclusionSeeley and his team have a long term and invested fan in me. The more I read this series, the more I grow excited for what is to come, and tying this arc to “Bldhaven,” I can't hide how happy I am. The feeling I get reading Seeley's work is what made me fall in love with comics in the first place; familiarity, yet something entirely new and wonderful, and I don't want that feeling to ever go away.

    Nightwing is starting to close in on some of the top level DC books. It's rolling and with a new Batman & Robin story, terrific characterization and on electric art, it's just getting started. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Tim Montoya Mar 1, 2017

    Nightwing #16 is a great introduction to a new story arc. Setting up the big bad, showing motivation and pure emotion, all while having a lot of fun along the way. Seely sure can write a great Dick Grayson and it shows here. I can't wait to see what is in store for the next issue. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Aron Pohara Mar 1, 2017

    Overall this book is honestly not for everyone, but if you are a fan of Nightwing or Bat Family in general, do pick it up, it is worth reading, it was never meant to be on a grand scale like some other books in Rebirth line, this book is more about self discovery and so far Seeley has hit all the right notes, as Nightwing continues trying to correct the wrongs that have happened ever since the events of Forever Evil. That's really where the biggest strength of this book lies for the fans of this character, is that of all the characters, I could say Batman excluded, is Nightwing is just back to being old school Dick Grayson, and there is nothing wrong with that!

    Comicsverse - Fabio Castelblanco Mar 1, 2017

    The "Nightwing Must Die" arc begins with Damian coming to Bldhaven to confront Dick on who should be the next Batman. Writer Tim Seeley continues to impress with the character of Nightwing. His Damian Wayne is less desirable and actually brings the character back to a time when he was a real pain. Artwork for the action scenes by Javier Fernandez is crisp and sharp. Overall, NIGHTWING #16 is a comic for every Nightwing fan to read. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - William Evans Mar 1, 2017

    A new arc, another hero in town and new potential "problem" maybe, sorta in addition to Shawn being kidnapped. I'm here for the buddy cop story with Damian and Dick any day of the week, especially facing basically Bizarro Nightwing for the next few issues. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Mark Henely Mar 1, 2017

    The art is, of course, amazing. Javier Fernandez shows off why he got that exclusive DC contract with his impressive work in these action scenes. Both Dick and Damian's faces are incredibly expressive as they face off and it really adds to the heart of these scenes. Fernandez also gets to stretch his legs a little and draw the entire teen titans. It's a good showcase for a talented artist. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Mar 5, 2017

    Nightwing #16 is a strong kick-off to the new "Nightwing Must Die" arc. Tim Seeley is able to tap into the potential that always exist whenever Dick Grayson and Damian Wayne team-up. This latest team-up played well with the re-introduction of Deathwing into the DCU as the latest addition to Nightwing's growing rogues gallery. How Deathwing's appearance relates to the current events with Nightwing's relationship with Shawn Tsang provides this new arc with a lot of interesting possibilities. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Sergio Pereira Mar 1, 2017

    Overall, Nightwing #16 is another marvellous issue from the mind of Seeley. While Chuck Dixon might be known as the definitive voice of Robin, Seeley's making his case to become the authority on Nightwing. He has the ability to make you hate waiting a fortnight for the next issue"and that's a good thing. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Mar 2, 2017

    The short version is that things may be getting serious with his new girlfriend, Shawn Tsang. Maybe too serious for comfort, as Dick has a lot to think about even before someone finds a new way to strike at him. That is really well done and compelling. What's less successful is the way that the issue forces Damian Wayne to be involved with the plot. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Mar 1, 2017

    We get a great development in this issue along with a great guest star, but overall I found myself feeling a tad disappointed because the art is back to looking like it did at the beginning of the series and after having this book look so great, it's tough trying to deal with that again.  I did enjoy this issue though even with this problem........ I just wish we'd get a different regular artist on this book. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Mar 1, 2017

    The first real disappointment of Seeley's Nightwing run, though it's not without its charms. I appreciate what Seeley has been doing with Dick's personal life, though I wish certain aspects of his relationship with Shawn hadn't been rushed. As such, since that's the driving force behind this new arc, it doesn't quite come together. Thankfully, Seeley still knows how to write Nightwing, and he certainly knows how to write Damian as well. Those brilliant interactions, along with some reliably great work from Fernndez and Sotomayor, elevate the book above its disappointments. Read Full Review

    Excellent character work. The chemistry between Dick and Damian is wonderful and there is a lot to look forward to regarding Nightwing's legacy and his future with Shawn. I hope the coming plotlines can match the maturity we are seeing in these characters. Read Full Review
