Detective Alphonse Sapienza may be a natural-born leader, forged through his many years with the GCPD, but does that give him what it takes to lead the Night-wings when their lives are endangered as never before? As fires that seem to have a mind of their own rage through Blüdhaven targeting cops, the team is up against its greatest test yet. Joined by Ric Grayson, how will the Nightwings save the city's finest from a red-hot vendetta and the city's newest villain, Burnback?

    Another strong issue from the team, and I look forward to next month's. I have a few ideas as to who the fire monster is, or who they may be controlled by. I'll let you know if I'm right when it's revealed! Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz May 17, 2019

    Chris Mooneyham is doing some amazing work on this title. He's one of the best artists that DC has in their arsenal. His storytelling is top notch and his figure drawing is exemplary. I look forward to more work for him. He takes the interesting script from Jurgens and really brings it home. Read Full Review

    Sadly, Grayson is still on the backburner in NIGHTWING #60. While the artwork is amazing, focusing more on Team Nightwing and less on the O.G. Nightwing has left this comic fizzling out. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Steve J Ray May 15, 2019

    I've loved Nightwing since his first appearance almost 35 years ago, and I've been a huge Dick Grayson fan for at least a decade longer than that! I know that this new take on the character has left many fans bewildered, or even enraged. For me this era has been fascinating, entertaining and educational. I'm loving this series as much as I ever have, and, whatever he calls himself, Mr. Grayson remains one of the most admirable and inspirational heroes in all of comics. Nightwing #60 is another example of how to write and draw comics the right way. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Sebastian Ferguson May 16, 2019

    In the current age of nebulous trade-fillers and spectacles that barely tell the barest of plot lines, Jurgens manages to tell an actual comic book plot in a single issue, just like the good old days. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson May 15, 2019

    While he may not be the exact same masked hero, the outcome is the same. The main difference is an additional cast this book needed. And, with them comes a better understanding of the city they inhabit, and why it deserves to be fought for. Read Full Review

    An interesting premise to help cement a new arc is certainly promising for the future; you've just got to hope it ends up delivering. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Adrian Care May 17, 2019

    Despite the Team Nightwing gimmick starting to wear thin, there is some well-written character work in this issue. The creative team balance the cast well and do create some intrigue with what is essentially an uninspired villain, but this storyline needs to wrap up and this book is starting to feel like it needs a new direction.

    GWW - Nick Friar May 14, 2019

    Now, when it comes to his potential battle with Sapienza, this has a ton of promise. It could divide the group and lead to some serious down and dirty hand-to-hand fights. Ric will win, but it should still make for a wild ride. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea May 15, 2019

    Nightwing's new status quo continues to be interesting as we're getting new villains and diving into the backstories of our new heroes. The art really works for the story and even though we're not getting a lot of Ric Grayson here, I think it works better for this title right now and what it's trying to do. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier May 15, 2019

    ChrisMooneyhams art works for the book, much as it has on other titles. Maybe Imimagining things, but it has a distinctive style that is reminiscent of DenysCowan inked by Klaus Janson. Not a bad mix, but its only a matter of time whenhe cultivates his own style, if he hasnt already and Im projecting my owninterpretations. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield May 15, 2019

    Dan Jurgens has been writing DC comics for close to thirty years now, and in that time he's rarely written a bad comic. The current "Ric Grayson" status quo seems determined to test that, but he's still managed to elevate this title above the dumpster fire it's become, at least in Nightwing #60. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald May 15, 2019

    There's nothing new here. Ric Grayson is" Ric Grayson. At this point, you have creative teams inside and outside of DC taking jabs at how awful this entire concept is, so you would think that DC would just move on" Unfortunately, they're not, and we have to continue enduring this generic slum of mediocrity that often dips down into the low levels of bad. But hey, at least we have Nightwing Prime and Nightwing Red now" Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 19, 2019

    It's a really wordy, really awkward issue full of exposition and flashback that even a promising open and a cliffhanger that has some potential can't overcome. Read Full Review

    THE GOOD:

    -I'll be honest, I didn't hate this issue.

    -Could it be? Is the art… growing on me?

    -Honestly Detective Sapienza is alright here. I'd gladly take his narration over *shudder* Ric's.

    -I think Hutch is a great character.

    -I'll be honest, the end has me interested.

    THE BAD:

    -Man the dialogue is so cringe-inducing here, especially at the beginning.

    -This big bad really doesn't interest me at all.

    -Bea is and always has been awful.

    -The first page is so awful. Thankfully the art is alright, so it doesn't look so bad visually.

    I can review this in 2 words: It Sucks. There is nothing of value present in this title and it is far from compelling enough to generate any interest in any upcoming issues.

    One-note characters remain one-note, but now they have code-names. Such compelling character development! /facepalm #1

    nightwing “Prime” questions the involvement of ric while simultaneously stating he has the instinct, skills, and know-how to do what they are TRYING to do, better even, because he’s suspicious. I thought he was supposed to be a good detective? You’d think he would have been able to figure out at least some idea of who ric is supposed to be. /facepalm #2

    His involvement in the encounter the issue starts on is negl more

    I hate what they're doing to Nightwing. I don't care about these vigilante cops I want to see DICK GRAYSON not "RIC". The story was alright, the art was decent. I am a huge Nightwing fan and to see all these other people have his suits is driving me crazy. Change isn't always good (shouts at DC)

    Good issue. We get more background for the Nightwings& see the team working together against a flame monster, of which we don’t know yet where he/ she is coming from. The story is told from Ric‘s point of view& from Nightwing Prime‘s point of view, which is how Ric is calling Sapienza. I also liked Rics& Bea‘s interaction with each other& I hope we will get more background infos about her character as well at some point. Sapienza is also investigating the case further& guess the case will be solved next issue.
    I liked the interaction between the characters& they were all well written. Jurgens is doing a great job just like Lobdell did with the story. Overall I hope this Ric story is lasting a little longer, because Nightwing i more

    Nice to get some background on one of the Nightwing's. Art looks alright. The reasoning felt why she is mad, I get it is out of anger but like really? Seems a bit of a stretch for me. I will admit, enjoying seeing Bea more and more.

    At best it's just dull, at worst it's a shame what this comic has become post-Tim Seeley.

    As far as this run goes, at least we are getting to know the other characters a bit... even though it still isn't enough. This issue isn't bad, but it isn't what I want.

    This has been the stupidest story arc from the beginning and it's not getting any better. A handful of cops find Nightwings old suits and think that makes them qualified to be superheroes??? Really???? And how is it these days everyone seems to be able to swing around on roof tops? I'm sorry but I'm pretty sure if that was possible that there would still have to be some training on that. When is this story going to end??? These characters are not even remotely interesting. They even look like people just playing dress up and not like heroes at all. Plus wouldn't a team of unknown people going around in Dick/Ric's uniforms and using Batman made gear get Batman's attention? I hope Dick/Ric gets his memory back soon because this comic is reall more
