Following the events of October's Night-wing Annual #2, Ric Grayson is getting closer to the truth about what happened to him. Talon has been vanquished, but his interference has put Ric on the trail of other members of the Court of Owls. Have they been taking advantage of his injured state from the beginning? And what does that mean for the life he thought he lost?

    Dan Jurgens does a great job writing this and Cliquet is a good artist. They do a great job in this issue again. The story here is a bit short but hey, you can't have everything. It is another solid issue in a good comic book run. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Kenneth Bowden Feb 27, 2020

    Nightwing #69 is a pretty good issue with decent action and an awesome reveal at the end, but ultimately leaves you wanting for more concrete progression towards Nightwing truly returning. Read Full Review

    With memories awoken and a monster unleashed, Robin's collars may not be the only things covered in red. Big things are about to happen across all the Bat-Books starting in Batman #95, and this issue has just fired the first shot. Read Full Review

    The other reason this theory seems plausible, look at what happened to Grayson's narrative boxes after he was brainwashed again in Nightwing #69. The boxes went back to the style from when Dick first became Ric. It's a slightly more obvious decision, but along the same lines as what Cliquet did with Grayson's hair " which is a small detail that says a lot. Read Full Review

    As the doors close on the Ric Grayson era, Dan Jurgens has one last adventure up his sleeve starting in Nightwing #69. It's pretty amazing what he's done with this status quo, tying it all into the Court of Owls mythology and closing many of the old holes in the concept. Read Full Review

    This is the closest to Nightwing we've seen Dick Grayson in months and thankfully, it's a breath of fresh air. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Feb 19, 2020

    Dan Jurgens' Nightwing needs a bit more flash in both its art and writing to truly break free of its recent history of mediocrity, but Nightwing #69 is a step in the right direction. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Feb 24, 2020

    Nightwing #69 is another step in the right direction for the ongoing Ric Grayson saga. For the first time we see a Ric Grayson who shows actual motivation in what he is doing rather than going through the motions. How that ties into the Court of Owls role in this story made for a better comic book. There are still problems that continue to persist in this Ric Grayson saga but at least we are now starting to see some light in the darkness that previously covered Nightwing as of late.

    The Batman Universe - Donald Townsend Feb 20, 2020

    This feels like the end of an arc, but I still feel that we don't know who Grayson will be from now on. Obviously, he is no Talon or Owl. He also doesn't appear to be the Dick Grayson we know and love from the Bat-Family either. It looks like we're going to be heading in a new direction, which is fine. Bludhaven and Bea are fodder for interesting stories. I worry that we'll be stuck wondering who this guy ultimately is. I want Dick Grayson back with all the history that comes with it. Fresh starts are great, but blank slates are unworthy of characters that have been around for decades. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 19, 2020

    Well, we still have Ric, and while that's enough to make a lot of people avoid this book, I was more upset at the flood of recap that dominated the narrative.  Seriously, most people know what's going on in this book and have been avoiding it.  Please, bring back Dick so we can get something good before 5G hits.
