    The Blockbuster arc went some unexpected places and Nightwing survives in some ways, less so in others. A good conclusion to the story and a good spark for the next one. Read Full Review

    This issue gives a great resolution to the previous issues' sprung trap and pushes the big players of the story into new, interesting and dramatic roles. Now that Roland has replaced Tiger Shark as the Big Man of Bludhaven, I imagine things will be pretty tense in the big bad city. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jul 19, 2017

    Nightwing remains one of the top tier Batman spin-off books. Seeley has shown a willingness to keep trying new things with the direction of the title. It helps keep the book from ever feeling stagnant. And with a character like Nightwing that's a winning formula. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Jul 19, 2017

    But Nightwing is a good title when thesetting stays in Bludhaven. This issue allowed a controversial ongoing plotpoint to be laid to rest, thereby opening the paths to which the story mayfollow. It has potential to be a great book. Hopefully this new beginning willallow it to be. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Jul 19, 2017

    A good “anniversary issue” in its own right and a nice “season finale,” Nightwing finishes its first year strong. The storytelling and dialogue are great as always, with relationships developing at a believable, deliberate pave. That's to say nothing of the art, which is some truly inspiring from Jung and Sotomayor. From the opening scene to the final cliffhanger, this issue of Nightwing delivers on just about every level. Bring on act two. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 19, 2017

    This extra-sized Anniversary issue of Nightwing does not disappoint with it's page use and not only gives us an interesting answer to the question about how Nightwing would survive last issue's cliffhanger, but seemed to drive us into a completely new direction for the character and this book with what our hero will be facing coming down the line.  The art was great and I find myself all about what tales will be spun out of Bludhaven going forward.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 24, 2017

    Nightwing #25 closed out the "Blockbuster" arc with Tim Seeley setting up the groundwork for the future of the series. Now that Blockbuster is firmly entrenched as the most powerful underworld boss in Bludhaven the series has big bad Nightwing needs to overcome. That alongside how Dick's relationship with Shawn Tsang came to an end provides plenty of questions for Seeley to answer in future issues of Nightwing. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Eric Cline Jul 19, 2017

    This is a decent issue, but it's too lacking in unique, memorable presentation to be a must-read for anyone who doesn't already love Dick Grayson. Read Full Review

    GWW - Christopher Rodriguez Jul 19, 2017

    This Nightwing story finale felt more like a prologue than an ending. The things being setup look great, but it lacked closure so it felt anti-climactic. They are building an interesting world around Dick Grayson in Bludhaven, but I'm left wanting more. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Ariel DuPey Jul 19, 2017

    I don't know if I've ever been so stale face while reading a comic. Nothing worked for me in the issue. I thought the escape from doom plot was silly, the main fight was too short, and I still don't care about Bludhaven. Nightwing's character in the last couple of book have felt insincere and unlike him for me. I've really liked Seely's previous runs, but ever since Dick went to Bludhaven, it's all gone down hill for me. You know it's bad when your checking the page number every couple seconds to see if your close to done yet". Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Donald Hudec Jul 21, 2017

    It was an okay issue. Overall, not very eventful. Nightwing deserves a better plot, a better supporting cast, a better, more confident girlfriend and a way better rogue's gallery. Blockbuster may well turn out to be a significant threat, but Dick just basically kicked the crap out of 30 villains who are exactly on his level. Read Full Review
