Dick Grayson has inherited Alfred’s fortune, a puppy, and a whole lot of questions. Who is Mayor Zucco, and what is her relation to the man who murdered Dick’s parents? What sinister plans does Blockbuster have for Blüdhaven? What kind of dog food is best for a three-legged puppy? To answer these questions, Dick’s going to need a little help from his friends-past and present.

    Nightwing is back and arguably better than ever, and it only took this creative team two issues to get it there. This series has an incredibly bright future before it, that much is given. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Apr 21, 2021

    Nightwing #79 is almost exactly what I hoped for with this new run on Nightwing. Honestly, I wanted Dick and Babs to do a hard traveling heroes kind of thing, but this is a pretty close second. Dick is the only person, real or fictional, with whom I would trust billions of dollars (real or fictional) and this book shows exactly why. The jokes are excellent. The action is breathtaking. This book is just perfect. Read Full Review

    Nightwing #79 is a perfect followup to last issue, with excellent world building. I know these sites and characters are not new, but this book is laying down solid foundation while planting new seeds that should entertain classic fans and enrapture new ones. Amazing art and wonderful words come together under this big top! Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Apr 21, 2021

    With just two issues under its belt, this creative team continues to not only build a new solid foundation for Nightwing and Bldhaven, but plants many promising seeds for the future. The true challenge of a city like Bldhaven is laid bare through the writing and in the moody and colorful presentation that the art team puts their whole heart into. It very well could be Nightwing at the finest that he's ever been. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - acnbat Apr 20, 2021

    Taylor doesn't show all his cards yet, and I love the slow burn approach. It feels like he's super confident that he's in this for an extended run and is setting things up in a relaxed, non rushed manner. The chemistry between Dick and Babs is obvious and extremely well written. The art and colors by Redondo and Lucas bring the story to life. And while this isn't as good as issue one, it's one heck of an issue two. I wonder how long before DC wants to double ship Nightwing??!! Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - D.M. Grant Apr 20, 2021

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Apr 24, 2021

    Taylor and Redondo work splendidly together in crafting a fun Nightwing comic. I just have some personal hang-ups on what they might think is good to do with a billion dollars. Nightwing's probably gonna blow that money on naive charities. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 20, 2021

    Nightwing #79 didn't impress me as much as Tom Taylor's first issue of Nightwing did, but I am still excited for this book.  I need things to get moving forward a bit more.  It may be just me, but I love Dick Grayson because he's a great guy, so I don't need to be reminded of it every page at the expense of story progression.
