    All in all it doesn't get much better than this, you'll cheer as we see our boy coming back into the fold, wait with bated breath as you ponder how he's going to fold all the things he's been through together and cheer as he dives headfirst back into action. You really couldn't ask for a better return of the great Nightwing than what you receive here. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Oct 22, 2020

    Nightwing #75 brings the world back into stasis…sort of. I am keen to see where everything goes for Dick and what seems to be team Nightwing. I think that is a great plan. That last page is a bit of a crappy move. I mean, can't the most optimistic hero in the DC Universe have just one good day? Read Full Review

    GWW - Nick Friar Oct 21, 2020

    Travis Moore and Ronan Cliquet, along with Nick Filardi, gave this book a much different vibe from the Ric and Dicky Boy days. They did a good job of helping turn the page on that chapter of Nightwing's life. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Oct 22, 2020

    Now, we might actually get his take on classic Nightwing. I think he can do a great job. If he sticks with good artists (Cliquet and Moore do great on this issue) this could be the start of a new era for the character. Read Full Review

    Overall good issue, as Jurgens continues to rise above the status quo. Read Full Review

    To be frank, this issue alone does it much better than the past 20+ issues combined. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 19, 2020

    Nightwing is back, and I can't wait to see him back in action! This issue, however, is all about what Dick wants and what is coming for him. I didn't like everything from the "Ric Era," but it did happen, and Dan Jurgens gives some resolution to some of the better things from it. We also get a cliffhanger that might ruin the best thing, and that will have me back next month for sure. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Christopher Franey Oct 20, 2020

    Nightwing #75 is a good issue, worth a read to see the next leg of Dick's journey. The heart is there, but it does feel a little lackluster at times. There are great character moments, but this issue is rather slow. Just when the pace picks up, we find out the wait will continue. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Oct 20, 2020

    While there is one more con with this issue, later on, Nightwing #75 is an impressive return of the title character to his old self. It has been a long wait. Now that DC has Dick back on track, let's hope he gets his full adventuring life in Bludhaven. This is the city fans have clamored to come back, one made for Dick Grayson. But with all of the detours to the many Batman crossovers, and attempts to get rid of this beloved character, it feels like Bludhaven and, by extension, Nightwing, never really get to stand on their own. There is a broad swath of Bat titles. Gotham is covered. In ten years' time, let's add some good quality titles to the Nightwing Family and let this blossom. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Oct 20, 2020

    Nightwing #75 is beset by a surprising amount of hesitancy to fully dive back into Dick being Nightwing. While his relationship with Bea is a believable reason for Dick to be scared to fully return to his old life, Jurgens' script definitely looks backward more than forward. Travis Moore's interior art is a sight to behold, though I wish he got more action scenes to draw, and Ronan Cliquet turns in quality pencils as per usual. It's only Jurgens' script that gives me pause due to its repetitive and wishy washy depiction of Dick Grayson. The sooner the series moves past the remnants of the "Ric saga' the better, but Bea's continued inclusion is more than welcomed. Read Full Review

    Overall I liked the issue, but the ending and the art are downers for me. Read Full Review

    While clunky in the setup, this issue eventually settles on solid footing as Jurgens establishes the new status quo for Nightwing. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Oct 24, 2020

    There was great hope that once Dick Grayson returned as Nightwing during Joker War that things would turn around for the character and his series. Unfortunately Dan Jurgens spends the first half of Nightwing #75 oversized page count in rehashing the same Ric Grayson storytelling that has hurt this series for the last two years. Its not until Jurgens gets past that and gives us a story about what Dick Grayson returning as Nightwing means that this issue turns a corner. Hopefully with the appearance of KGBeast the positives of Nightwing #75 are what become the focus of this series moving forward. Read Full Review
