    DC Comics News - Michael McGale Sep 22, 2017

    Dark and fantastical, this issue of Nightwing will appeal to all the fans who crave a little more Westeros influence in their comic books. The Dark Nights: Metal story welcomes some beautiful and grotesque artwork for some incredibly intriguing enemies that blur the lines for the heroes and villains of the DC multiverse. The weight of the tension of the story, of Dick and Damien's relationship and their search for their father, adds a very real and moving dramatic element that shines through the arctic battle sequences and maintains throughout Dick's deep and thoughtful inner monologues.

    Comicosity - Doug Zawisza Sep 22, 2017

    Nightwing #29 is a lot of greatness in one story: its complete, but steeped in continuity, it showcases the vastness of the DC Universe, and it gives readers a gorgeous invitation to check out Dark Knights: Metal. This is a wonderful comic that bridges the gap between the main event story and the current ongoing adventures of Dick Grayson. Regardless of your interest in Metal, Nightwing #29 will certainly provide a bit of entertainment and is definitely the fun type of comic we all started picking up these things for. Read Full Review

    GWW - Christopher Rodriguez Sep 20, 2017

    Nightwing storylines culminate into this single Dark Nights tie-in issue. It feels more like a must-read then any other side story I've ever read. Some big things are on the horizon for Batman's former protg. Plenty of action and exciting mysteries unfold, readers will get their fill. Read Full Review

    Gotham Resistance continues next week and its already vying for best event supporting mini-arc of 2017. Seeley and Pelletier held up their end and hopefully next week maintains the pace and quality effort so far. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - William Evans Sep 20, 2017

    As Tie-Ins go, Nightwing follows a pretty good Teen Titans issue by delivering another enjoyable trip towards the center. It seems that Nightwing might return to his own story next time, but for a brief interruption, this won works extremely well. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 25, 2017

    Nightwing #29 is a great tie-in issue that adds depth to what is going on in Dark Nights: Metal. Tim Seeley did a great job bringing past Batman and Nightwing stories into this issue. That history is elevated by the strong character interactions we get throughout Nightwing #29. So if you are reading Dark Nights: Metal I highly recommend picking this crossover tie-in story up.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 19, 2017

    While I'm not a fan of the way these Tie-Ins are going about telling their stories in the whole ring around the Gotham angle they're presenting, I was a fan of everything dealing with Nightwing's narration in this story, which in my mind adds a larger scope to what is going on in Metal and even makes previous Nightwing stories in his series bigger because of it, with how it ties them together.  I enjoyed the art in this issue and only wish that the main plot for these Tie-Ins was a bit stronger.

    This is what I want out of a Nightwing ongoing series. Hopefully it can maintain that when the tie-in is over. Read Full Review

    Nightwing #29 is a well done tie-in to the larger narrative of Dark Nights: Metal, and gives Nightwing some much needed time to shine in Gotham. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gregory Ellner Sep 25, 2017

    Fun yet simple, "Nightwing" #29 helps to increase the threat level for the 'Gotham Resistance' crossover, but has some difficulties with actually physically portraying those events. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Sep 20, 2017

    Nightwing #29 is what it is and the creative team does its best to make this an interesting tie-in story and get the reader involved in this event series. There is not much else to say about it, if you are just looking to read Nightwing you can definitely skip over this issue and wait until the next to follow his adventures, if you are all aboard the Dark Nights Metal event train, then obviously you are going to want to pick this Issue up as it does reveal some key things in that storyline.

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Sep 20, 2017

    More a collection of scenes than a complete story, even for a second chapter of an ongoing tie-in this is sadly disappointing. There are individual elements that I liked, and the issue looks great from beginning to end, but overall I had a hard time getting through this story. As a whole Metal has been pretty great so far, and this in no way derails it, I just wish the spotlight on my favorite character could have lived up to everything Seeley's done before.

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Sep 20, 2017

    As Metalcontinues making its way through the various titles of the DC Universe, itsunknown what the Nightwing title willbe in the months to come. DC loves its mega-event company-wide crossovers, soregular programming for some titles may be on hold for a while. But to its credit,DC seems less beholden to continuity concerns. Dont worry about anyinconsistencies vis--vis Green Arrow,Suicide Squad or Harley Quinn. Itsonly comic books. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Paul Shanly Sep 21, 2017

    Im not generally a big fan of tie-in issues as they take away from the larger story and usually end up feeling like a cash-grab. There are, however, some legitimately good ideas and interesting concepts in this issue and I find myself frustrated that they werent more of a focus of the issue. While I wish the creative team had executed things a different way, this crossover has me interested enough to want to read to see what happens next. Read Full Review
