    Dark Knight News - Tyler Harris May 20, 2017

    This weeks issue of Nightwing proved that you can have a one-off issue in between arcs still be just as fun as the arcs themselves – something that a lot of other titles in comics today seem to have forgotten. I was worried about the shift in creative teams, but honestly this issue felt just as fun as this series has always felt, and that consistency is one of the things that draws me to this book every two weeks when it hits shelves.

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles May 17, 2017

    This wasn't the biggest must-read issue this week, but the strong character work and above average artwork make this an easy recommendation for both Nightwing and Flash fans. Read Full Review

    Nightwing #21 is a great one-off story that is both a satisfying read by itself and does a great job re-establishing a forgotten friendship. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies May 21, 2017

    Benefiting from a light-hearted outlook and a refreshing break from the doom and gloom, Nightwing #21 may suffer from a lacklustre villain, but then the villain was never going to be a focus in an issue where you have both Wally West and Dick Grayson teaming-up. The character dynamic presented here is fun and engaging and if a team-up of these two superheroes sounds like your kind of thing, then you need to read this. Read Full Review

    With fun art and a refreshingly lighthearted tone, this issue is a nice break from the series' usual drama. Read Full Review

    The bonds and interactions between heroes, or even heroes and villains is what drives us to continue following their lives. This was a great little interlude that gave us a closer look into the friendship between Dick and Wally. The dialogue was very charming and witty, and you can't help but smile. Read Full Review

    This issue provides a relaxed, irreverent but still fun and overall enjoyable beginning to a new arc. The chemistry between Wally and Dick is a crowd-pleaser, however its the strongest hook this book has to offer without a substantial villainYET. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea May 17, 2017

    While this one-shot doesn't do much for big picture of Nightwing, it does give us a simple break from the stories we've been getting and allows our hero to have a bit of fun while his best friend is in town.  The art was decent, but the dialog was forced at times, but all in all, it was fun to read.

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws May 17, 2017

    As a one-off story with a bit of setup for future arcs, this is fine. I promise you I'll forget most of it within the month, but it's fine. The writing is a bit rough, consisting of both great ideas and grating dialogue. It's a breeze to read, though, and even with a questionable script Dick and Wally have an easy chemistry. Bldhaven itself is probably the most fascinating character here, with different locales bringing out different aspects of the city. While this was not my favorite issue of Nightwing, it was a serviceable break between arcs and a nice little breather. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - John Jones May 22, 2017

    I am growing very disappointed in this Nightwing series especially seeing as how Nightwing is one of my favorite Batman related characters. I will have to say that this issue is unfortunately a pass. Read Full Review

    If you're a fan of Dick and Wally then you may very well enjoy the hell out of this issue. It's nothing special, but the writer at least has fun with everyone's favorite two best friends in the DC universe. There is no real drama or sense of urgency outside of the opening sequence, but you'll be entertained. Read Full Review

    The entire issue feels very disposable and it should probably be skipped. Read Full Review
