Christmas has come to Gotham City, and all across the city people have taken time out of their busy schedules to spend time with loved ones. But Dick Grayson has found himself in the midst of a dilemma: How can he take time off when crime never sleeps? And how can he spend time with loved ones when he has pushed them all away? An answer, in the form of a random encounter with a lost soul-and kindred spirit-awaits him.

    Nightwing #77 is great ending to a series that had lost its way, but returned to greatness. This issue showcases a perfect holiday miracle by showing a hero who uses his heart, and is a perfect example of why we and the DCU love Dick Grayson. Read Full Review

    Also, seeing Alfred's name pop up isn't getting any easier the further away we get from his death. It hits a little differently when Dick brings Alfred up, too. He didn't get the chance to mourn properly when Alfred first passed, and Dick's mind was all messed up the last time the two crossed paths. So while it's still tough for everyone to cope with, Dick's situation is unique. Read Full Review

    I'm going to buy two copies of Nightwing #77 for myself, as the two covers by Travis Moore and Alan Quah are both absolutely stellar. Then I'm going to pick up a few more copies, for friends and relatives; kids and adults alike. Like I said coming in, this issue is the perfect Christmas treat, in every way possible; it's colorful, full of heart, and it's a steal of a stocking filler, at under five bucks. Buy it for a friend, a relative or – even better – pick the book up for yourself! Read Full Review

    Combined with the type of season, Nightwing #77 is a cheerful and heartwarming tale perfect for this time of year. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Dec 15, 2020

    It's been awhile since readers got classic Nightwing and while that doesn't break any ground this was an ideal issue to see Dick Grayson back into form again even if there's little remnants from the state of the book from most of the year. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Dec 15, 2020

    Nightwing #77 keeps up the Nightwing fans know and love. This issue presented a bit of a breather from what happened before and allowed readers to relax and take it for what it is. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Dec 16, 2020

    Nightwing #77 is fine. If you love Christmas, this is for you. I don't, so it isn't for me. The art is good. The story is clever. Bruce isn't a total jerk. Babs shows up at the end. It has all the hallmarks (see what I did there) of a great holiday story. It is a nice one off that doesn't move any long term story along, and has a touching tribute to Alfred. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Dec 15, 2020

    Nightwing #77 is a safe, but still endearing holiday themed issue with solid art and some progression for its title character. I'm sure most readers are ready now for Dick to fully delve back into his usual crime fighting ways, but with "Future State" looming, that might have to wait just a little longer. For now, Nightwing #77 does enough to satisfy those in the mood for some cozy winter comfort. Those less susceptible to these charms will find less to grab onto here. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 15, 2020

    While it should be easy to write a simple one-shot holiday story with Nightwing and the Bat-Family, Dan Jurgens tries too hard to be topical but forgets to write a good story in the meantime.  The art in the issue is good, but a Nightwing story about Bruce Wayne throwing money at problems doesn't fit the current Batman situation and is just plain wrong.  Happy Holidays everyone!

    It was time for this series to end. Hopefully next round the creators have a less horrible direction for the character.

    I know that simple feel-good stories like this are good because it’s nice to have simple, happy resolutions, but it all rings so hollow for me. Right, this is all so easy and uncomplicated. Living in capitalism isn’t so bad, actually, because in the end the billionaire class will have your back.

    Remember, kids: stealing is OK as long as you feel you deserve it. Heck, you may just end up being rewarded for it by having all your needs handed to you on a plate by some self-righteous moron with more money than sense.

    If you're going to attempt some kind of Robin Hood story relating to acquisitions and the vesting of IP, it is unwise to omit detail.

    Reading this again after Taylor and Redondo have taken over Nightwing, I only find more to like about it. It's a great one-off Issue that showcases who Nightwing is in a great way.

    A decent issue for a stand alone story and a nice Christmas story too. The only problem is Dick needs to stop feeling sorry for himself and realize he's better off. Considering the reaction this whole "Ric" crap got, how can he not be? I don't read Nightwing regularly, but this was a good "check in" issue.

    This was fine. It didn't really stand out and I probably could list a few issues with the story, but I mean, it's just supposed to be a small Christmas story. I don't expect anything much from that. I hope this is the end of this run though, and that we can start fresh in March.

    While I appreciate the book getting back to basics, I did not like how Jurgens and DC just glossed over his relationship with Bea. The story, and even Dick, admitted his love for her, as she was the one bright spot to come out of the whole Ric saga, it’s really a disservice to do away with her like that. I think male writers have problems writing female characters, because she would not have fallen for his lie about not having feelings for her. Again, I didn’t appreciate that they just threw that experience away, despite the upcoming storyline and “relaunch” of the titles. I think they need to bring her back and do her character justice. As a reader, I would have liked to have seen where the relationship would go, because it had a l more

    This series had its golden time years ago, with what they have been doing as Nightwing I thank this was the end.
