"THE UNTOUCHABLE: HUNTERS!" Nightwing finally feels like he's got his life in Blüdhaven under control. But the one thing he wasn't expecting was for a case from his past in Gotham City to rear its head here-a murderer he never set eyes on, but whose unmistakable signature has arrived in his new city! How many people will die before he's stopped this time? Or worse than that...what if Dick can't stop him? Incoming creative team Sam Humphries and Bernard Chang kick off a story that will take Nightwing back to his days as Robin and force him to question his future as well!

    Humphries and Chang really impressed me with their debut on the title. Their new villain looks to be an interesting one and a simpler take on Dick's personal life grounds this story in a satisfying way. Chang's art is the best it's ever been, and I'm certain this title is in safe hands. Read Full Review

    I'm really excited about this new slight change of Nightwing's status quo and this intriguing new enemy could be a welcome addition to his Rogue Gallery. Read Full Review

    Nightwing #35 is a great time to jump on if you haven't been reading this title. Humphries and Chang appear to have an incredible story in the works that hits all the right marks for any Nightwing or comic fan as they bring Bludhaven to life in a way that feels fresh and original. Placing Dick in that world only accents and elevates him as a character. There's a ton of texture and characterization to be found here " both in the script and the art " so go pick it up!

    The issue ends with a good cliffhanger that hints just how far the Judge's tentacles go, and it's overall a strong, solid start to a promising new run. Read Full Review

    Nightwing #35 marks a wondrous series debut for Sam Humphries and Bernard Chang. Both of whom have put a-lot of passion and hard work in faithfully realising the titular hero. Rest assured, the series is in good hands. Read Full Review

    I would've loved to see Defacer in this issue just to see where she and Dick are at, but aside from that. This was still a very solid issue of Nightwing. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - John Jack Dec 26, 2017

    Great start, if this is the direction this series is headed I will very much enjoy it. I've been waiting on trade paperbacks with Nightwing but man, I might step it up and buy single issues with this team, I knew I should have been buying singles! Anyway, you want this book, you'll like it. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Dec 20, 2017

    Yet, while there is a fair bit of action and a lot of happens during the issue, things don't quite connect for me. I'll read a scene I'm fully invested in, but will lose a bit of momentum as it shifts to the next in what feels like a rough transition. In part, I think it is because this is the new status quo of Nightwing. But I'm intrigued enough to gamble that the next issue is going to pay off now that the ante has been set. Read Full Review

    A new creative team on Nightwing doesn't bring anything really new or creative to the title in their first issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 20, 2017

    Sam Humphries starts his run on Nightwing with a paint by numbers issue that keeps Dick in Bludhaven, but not much else.  Maybe I was expecting a better first issue, but this wasn't it.  Hopefully it gets better from here because I want a Nightwing book I can get excited for. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Dec 31, 2017

    Nightwing #35 isnt what I hoped it would be. I had high expectations of Sam Humphriess introduction to the title after his phenomenal work on Green Lanterns. Where that book was heartfelt and fun, this one feels mean-spirited and cruel. I can tentatively recommend it to the die-hard Dick Grayson fan, but I would wait and check out next issue if I were you. Read Full Review

    Suddenly, Nightwing seems very much like a book that is better left on the shelf. Read Full Review
