    The Spyral Finale is one of the strongest issues of the series. The dialogue between Nightwing and Mr. Minos is stellar, as it is generally across the whole issue. The artwork on Mr. Minos is fantastic, and the shifty-faced rob't might just be my favourite villain to appear in this Nightwing series after how well he was utilized in this issue. Moreover, the Defacer/Run-Offs subplot is only becoming more and more compelling as its members become increasingly vulnerable and relatable. Read Full Review

    GWW - Christopher Rodriguez Sep 5, 2017

    The lack of butt-talk was disconcerting, but this issue pulled through and gave a satisfying ending to a great story arc. Having Grayson meet his Spyral allies and go full on superhero/spy was a great decision. I'm ready to see what the future holds for Nightwing. Read Full Review

    Do yourselves a favour. Go out and buy the Grayson omnibus, read it front to back and then read this arc of Nightwing. It will make this story much more cohesive. An excellent remise unfortunately held back by a rushed ending. Read Full Review

    Nation Of Nerds - Mark Fossas Sep 6, 2017

    I really dont know what else to say, because I feel that if I go any further into detail will move us into more potential spoilers. But trust me, this story pushes Nightwings mind to the limit. And if the story tellers think about it, they can really push the envelope to Dick's character. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 5, 2017

    For Grayson readers, this has been a fun homecoming style arc. And even for those not familiar with that run, Seeley and Fernandez made it enjoyable enough that even newcomers can get in on the excitement. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - William Evans Sep 7, 2017

    Nightwing wraps up a storyline pretty quickly, but gives us breadcrumbs of some other, more personal conflicts to come. Fair or not, this storyline could've used a little more time and doesn't quite hit the high notes of the previous arcs. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Philip Lawrence Sep 9, 2017

    Despite the less than stellar shoehorned villain,Nightwing #28still offers a solid amount of action, great dialogue and wonderful artwork. Tim Seeley has proven once again that he knows how to write the beloved eponymous character. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 10, 2017

    Nightwing #28 does a lot of things to create further interest in the future of this series. Tim Seeley's understanding of Nightwing and Huntress' characters made this a strong ending as the two are great compliments for one another. The strength in their dynamic helped cover up the eye rolling character development Shawn Tseng has gone through during this story arc. That said, we now have a lot to look forward to as Raptor is set to make his big return to Nightwing's life. Read Full Review

    If Tiger King and the Huntress become the new Nightwing supporting cast, we are all in for a great read. If Defacer goes all Swimfan on Nightwing, we also are in for a great read. Huntress is a worthy romantic sparring partner for Nightwing. Ive been saying for a while now that Nightwing is bogged down by a supporting cast that are, frankly, just unworthy of his top billing status as one of the worlds best known superheroes. However, if they start losing their minds to grief, jealousy, greed and despair? I could see them potentially posing a threat. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Sep 7, 2017

    This issue goes full soap opera with Dick Grayson's love life, including a very classic trope that everyone will immediately recognize. I don't know if that's going to be more satisfying than the mature romance that Dick Grayson had earlier in this series, but we'll see. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Sep 6, 2017

    Even when Nightwing isn't inherently great, it's still entertaining. This issue is a victim of a rushed schedule more than anything, and while it does have its problems, there's enough good here to keep your attention. While I wish this arc had been allowed to breathe a little more and develop its ideas further, the creative team deserve credit for doing something a little different. There are some interesting themes presented and some genuinely creepy visuals, making this one of the most unique issues of Nightwing to hit the stands in years. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Paul Mason Sep 9, 2017

    As I see the appeal of a super spy nightwing, it makes sense from a character trajectory, for some reason the whole idea never truly struck a chord with me. So while I am glad we seem to have seen the last of that side of Dick's persona it dismays me a little that it followed him from New 52 to Rebirth. There is some thrilling dialogue and comic book action so I am not going to pan this, but I am ready to move on. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 6, 2017

    I'm so happy that this Spyral arc is over because I just want our title character to move on from his previous incarnation and get back to doing the whole superhero thing back in Bludhaven, where the most interesting parts of this issue took place.  Just an over complicated mess of an ending that really didn't do anything but set up a past bad guy to make a return later on.  The art is so-so, but still not my cup o' tea and with all that being said, I still look forward to getting back to more Run-Off stuff next issue.
