A Nightwing and Wally West story, part 1 of 2! When it's easier to go buy bagels as Nightwing than as Dick Grayson because everyone is either trying to get him for his money or kill him for the price on his head, Nightwing realizes he'll need to enlist the help of his Teen Titan friends as his bodyguards, and the first to volunteer is of course his best friend...Wally West, a.k.a. the Flash!

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Mar 15, 2022

    There is a wonderful setup for all the inevitable showdowns coming. Not sure yet if this will be a full-on war, but it next issue will contain some very personal confrontations. Grab this issue and settle in for a dramatic series of events. Read Full Review

    The art team is brilliant. One minute you are loving the innocence of Haley"the next you are wondering why your hair product is not working as well as Dick Grayson's. I love the multiple action poses of Dick in one photo as you are transported into the action. Again, this is your pull list favorite so drink in every issue as Taylor, Bruno Redondo, Geraldo Borges take you on the best ride in comics that is being produced! Read Full Review

    This issue features some brilliantly done action scenes. I especially liked the way the Flash was presented. I really connected with his movements and emotions. I found this issue to be fully transportive and exciting. Read Full Review

    Nightwing #90 might be missing one of its key collaborators, but it's still a can't miss issue of DC's best ongoing title. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Mar 21, 2022

    ‘Nightwing' continues to lean heavily on the relationships that Dick Grayson has formed over the decades, which is just a boon for the title and for the universe as a whole. There are a few moments that didn't sit quite as well in the long run, but overall the book continues to deliver on its premise of making the character and his world more fun but also bigger and more centered.

    Since Tom Taylor took over the reins to Nightwing, the series has been packed to the brim with top-tier storytelling and #90 is no different. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Steve J Ray Mar 15, 2022

    Nightwing #90 is another excellent issue, in a looooong line of excellent issues. Blockbuster's not pulling any punches, Dick's life isn't getting any easier, and the villain that shows up at the end of the book sent shivers up both mine and Wally West's spines. The only thing I don't like about Nightwing is the month-long wait between chapters! Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - D.M. Grant Mar 16, 2022

    Every few issues there's something that Taylor writes that showcases a slight weakness in his scripting. This isn't a bad issue, but it's indicative of the run's failures as a whole, and I'm hoping it actually leads to a place that's more thoughtful conceptually. It can't all be ice cream and sprinkles for Nightwing; he's got to struggle a lot more than he has been. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Mar 15, 2022

    Nightwing #90 is a solid, if uninspiring, team-up book with Dick Grayson and Wally West as they find a way to go on the offensive after another attempt on Dick's life. Geraldo Borges' art makes a good impression, doing more than just filling in for series regular Bruno Redondo. Additionally, Tom Taylor's script finds a good angle for upping the stakes on Blockbuster's assassination attempts on Dick, putting more innocent civilians than ever in the crossfire. In a vacuum, this issue delivers a fun balance between action and character building, but the series as a whole feels rudderless, struggling to maintain momentum under the shadow of Dick's lofty ambitions to rebuild Bldhaven.

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 15, 2022

    Nightwing #90 is a good continuation of Dick Grayson's very dangerous life. A big theme is dealing with secret identities and how to navigate that with threats in real-time while fleshing out the relationships around Dick. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Mar 16, 2022

    Nightwing #90 is a strong start to the team-up between Nightwing and Flash. The developments quickly get back to how Dick Grayson is still in incredible danger as Blockbuster is focusing all his power on eliminating him. The villain that is revealed to be hired by Blockbuster elevated this Nightwing and Flash team-up to potentially reach another level in the next issue. Read Full Review
