    Also, how could I not mention the stunning cover art by the ever talented Jorge Jimenez and Alejandro Sanchez! I've been following Jorge Jimenez on Instagram and I'm really impressed with his artistic abilities. Hopefully he may even illustrate the series one day. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - John Jack Jan 22, 2018

    Man, I am loving this arc! The Judge is cool and it's more of a mystery than a superhero story, I don't think there's been a ton of action, but I've hardly noticed super fun arc. I think this arc will be remembered as a part of Robin and Nightwing canon for some time. See you next issue! Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Jan 17, 2018

    My enduring, continual skepticism of the Judge's efficacy as a villain aside, this issue begins paying out some of the gambles the earlier issues took. Nightwing is given the chance to the take entire stage, making full use of it. I'm excited to see where this goes, if only to see more of Dick Grayson's past. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jan 22, 2018

    While I still have some hang-ups about this new arc, Humphries is slowly rewarding my faith in his ability to right Nightwing with #37. It has a lot of fun and a lot heart, and he begins to dive into Dick Graysons psyche a bit more. Janson, Campbell, and Sinclair bring some talent to the aesthetics, and I can recommend the overall product. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Despite some issues with the art, I continue to be impressed with this new direction for Nightwing. Read Full Review

    Not a disappointing issue, but one that could have provided much more answers than it did. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Eric Cline Jan 17, 2018

    Nightwing #37 is okay, but it's not worth the cover price. The art's unnecessary shifts and the narrative's lack of important progression make the issue worth passing on unless you're a Nightwing completionist. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Jan 18, 2018

    This issue does nothing to progress the story, nor does it add any interesting elements. If anything, I feel it diminishes the quality of Humphries current story. Because of this, I'd recommend you skip this issue, and use the money to check out one of the new titles DC is dropping this month. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 17, 2018

    This issue of Nightwing dealt with Dick's early days as Robin when he first encountered the Judge.  While that would have been good if Sam Humphries uses it to give us more information about his still pretty unknown villain, Humphries wastes time with stuff we know and to introduce a new ally who ends up being painfully underdeveloped.  The art is hit or miss and this one can be skipped, even by those reading this current story arc.

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Jan 17, 2018

    The flashback sequence was drawn by Klaus Janson, whose work we seldom see these days. Its great to see old-fashioned, hand-drawn comic books by a master ofthe craft. The moment I saw it, Id hoped for it to be a long-forgotten story by Jim Aparo or Eduardo Baretto. But Janson is good enough. However, seeing his work side-by-side with the digitally polished work of Jamal Campbell only widens the gap between the qualities of the two artists. Read Full Review
