    NIGHTWING #27 juggles several different storylines at once. While it is fast paced and engaging, it can be a lot to handle. Especially since there are callbacks to Nightwing's time as Agent 37. As always, the artwork by Javier Fernandez and colorist Chris Sotomayor continues to satisfy. From the exhilarating action to the more intimate character moments, Spyral Part 2 is shaping up to be another stellar arc for Nightwing. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Devon Browning Aug 18, 2017

    Final Verdict: 8.3 The art in this book continues to impress, as well as the character development we see in Nightwing. A book everyone should have on their subscriptions. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - David Finn Aug 17, 2017

    A strong, moody issue that ties back to the Grayson comic which Seeley co-wrote. While the plot lines of some of the supporting cast do slightly move forward this is primarily an issue of particular interest to Grayson readers. Another solid effort by this creative team! Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Philip Lawrence Aug 18, 2017

    Although I still do not entirely comprehend the story, Seeley's pitch perfect realisation of the eponymous hero and the chemistry Nightwing shares with Huntress kept me engaged throughout the issue. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - William Evans Aug 16, 2017

    Nightwing dives back into his Spyral days to uncover the mystery of why they're being hunted with some pacing issues and artistic hitches, but nothing that derails the story. It still carries the intrigue that Seeley has built over this series. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Aug 16, 2017

    The cliffhanger was smart and played off a seemingly throwaway joke from earlier. Art problems aside, I still enjoyed this issue and am ready for the next installment. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Aug 17, 2017

    After a few issues that felt like they went off the rails, Nightwing seems to be back on track with its current Spyral storyline. It still seems like Tim Seeley is paying homage to his own run on Grayson with Tom King, but it's a joyous throwback. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Aug 16, 2017

    Another solid entry for sure, there's a lot of great story going on in Nightwing. Each individual thread stands on its own as some compelling drama, but it never quite comes together to be truly satisfying. Still, the writing is superb, the visuals are stellar, and the synergy between the two makes for one of the best teams in comics right now. Read Full Review

    With some unexpected twists and turns, this issue finally sees Dick make some progress in the right direction against the criminal group plaguing his city and his life. The criminal conspiracy of the Second Hand has given way to the clandestine espionage of Spyral, and with the spy organization "gone dark", the problems are sure to intensify in the following issues.

    An action packed roller coaster, with some pretty great fight scenes along the way. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Sergio Pereira Aug 16, 2017

    “Spyral” part two intrigues and hooks us into Nightwing‘s latest adventure in fine fashion. Also, I don't believe for one second that he and Huntress will keep things strictly professional, and we could end up seeing some soapie-inspired love-triangle drama popping up down the line. So let's see what Seeley has in store for us in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 21, 2017

    All in all, it's a mixed bag of an issue, and one that probably works better for regular and long-term readers of Grayson's adventures. Nightwing #27 offers a nice character balance in Nightwing/Huntress, some strong action and excellent art, but doesn't quite stick the landing in terms of story coherence. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 16, 2017

    While this issue is seriously padded out with a lot of nothing, there was a moment towards the end of the issue that I found myself interested in what's going on here, but even with that interest, this is by no means a good issue of Nightwing.  I'm not a fan of the art, plus it was a lot of filler to get us to the end, but at least I can say that I want to go forward and find out what this cliffhanger actually means.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Aug 17, 2017

    This is by no means a worthless comic book, it just doesn't hit all the notes it needs to for this to sing. It's also not an easy read for anyone who started reading Nightwing comics with this series. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Donald Hudec Aug 18, 2017

    Tim Seeley really knows how to end on a cliffhanger! I just wish the payoffs would be stronger. I am happy to see Spyral, and Helena Bertinelli (Huntress), back in Dick Graysons life. And it was interesting to see Mouse embracing her dark side in her grief and need for revenge. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Aug 16, 2017

    The wholestory reads like a story originally intended for Grayson, but the when the pluggot pulled on that book, the unused script was retasked for publication at alater date. Not a high-point for any comic book. Read Full Review
