    In the penultimate issue of Raptor's Revenge, we get the master plan. We have clearly drawn lines after Raptor told us his motive last issue. All that remains to see is how Nightwing saves the city, who will help him and ultimately if he's still going to leave. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Nov 15, 2017

    Tim Seeley's penultimate issue of Nightwing is one of the most exciting of the run, a non-stop action sequence that pairs Nightwing and his historical arch-nemesis Blockbuster against Dick's personal nemesis Raptor " and an army of Blockbusters. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Michael McGale Nov 16, 2017

    Action-packed and fast-moving, this explosive issue moves the story forward and provides more context on the now dual threat of Pigeon and Raptor, while lining up all of the players ready to deal with the rebellious pair. There isn't a lot of time spent expanding on the Run-Offs and they remain mainly on the perimeter of the story this time, however there is still a lot of great content from the villains as they make their move against Bludhaven.

    Although the story arc's main villain is absent for most of the comic,Nightwing #33neverthelessdelivered a thoroughly entertaining ‘situational ally' story. The dynamic between Desmond and Nightwing was always fun to read. Their tag team fight scenes were fun to witness. Desmond proved to be a- somewhat- likeable character and I'm so excited for the next issue! Now because the “Raptor' Revenge” arc will definitely conclude. And from the looks of that ending, it's going to be one helluva finale. Read Full Review

    Nicely drawn art married with an action packed story sets up the ending of this arc to the fullest. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Nov 16, 2017

    This is the penultimate chapter of "Raptor's Revenge," but I'm pretty much ready for it to be over now. As much as I like Nightwing as a character, both Raptor and Blockbuster have been holding this series back for the last few months. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Nov 15, 2017

    Seeley delivers another solid chapter as he races to wrap up his run on Nightwing. The plots he's tasked to resolve compared to the issue count he's been given doesn't work in his favor, but he's handling it quite well. There are two major negatives here. One is the abundance of exposition, and the other is that Seeley doesn't get the time he deserves to tell these stories. But when the latter is one of the main opportunities of a book, it can't be that bad! With all of this exposition out of the way, Seeley appears to be set up for one hell of a conclusion next month, and you better believe I'm excited for it! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 15, 2017

    While not the most dynamic issue of Nightwing, we did get all of our exposition out of the way for our finale next issue, which hopefully is something more than fighting Blockbuster monsters because that's all you really get here.  Thankfully, the art, which I'm normally not a fan of is pretty decent this issue, I just wish that we got more from the story.

    The Batman Universe - Paul Shanly Nov 16, 2017

    This issue does a good job of keeping the action going and the story moving. Although I wonder if the book will stick the landing based on whats set up here, its a fun issue and I enjoyed reading it. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Nov 15, 2017

    JavierFernandez returns to the drawing board as the sometimes go-to artist for Nightwing. Its a good match, thoughsomewhat inconsistent as artists rotate in and out of story arcs " shall we say" less than satisfying results. It seems the wiser plan would be to feature thesame artist for the duration of the story arc. Read Full Review

    This issue is coherent and...not much else. Stale, maybe? Read Full Review

    I don't know why I like this and the past issue so much. Both are flawed, yet I never had a moment of boredom. The whole issue screams what a comic book is for me: a hero with a heart of gold, a villain who is conflicted, a wacky plan and a lot of monsters causing havoc. The kid in me liked this, especially the Tiger Shark moment. In conclusion, this issue brought a smile to my face and reminded me why I started reading comics.

    The strength of this issue, like the last, is the conversation. The fight stuff is pretty good, though it kind of feels like the army of 'roided up id monsters is sketchy in both art and use. It's the chat between Dick and a version of Blockbuster who is surprisingly more interesting than the one we knew and loved to hate in the classic Dixon era. This Roland Desmond is fascinating and a great mix of outright thug and thoughtful adversary. Plus I think that Seeley has finally got a handle once more on the rest of the cast. The finale is shaping up to be a great capstone to the short but eventful Seeley era.

    Looking forward to this arc being over. Tim Seeley’s run has been mediocre at best. So many great stories could be told with Nightwing. Hopefully Sam Humphries can tap into the potential Nightwing has as a character.

    This issue sucked. The amount of exposition laced dialogue was sickening. I hate when the dialogue has to point out things that could easily be inferred because Seeley doesn't trust the reader to think too hard about his comics. In fact, I think he banks on that idea. Nightwing's jokes are as terrible as ever. Meanwhile, Shawn and her gang of uninteresting F-listers are also around doing things... And that's it. Raptor's master plan is just too dumb. How is that even supposed to work? I guess we'll find out next issue. I, for one, could wait a millennia to find out.
