There's a new commissioner in town, and it's none other than Maggie Sawyer! But one clean commissioner does not make a whole bad basket of Blüdhaven police officers good, and now Blockbuster is forced to lean more on Nightwing's sister, Mayor Zucco, to oversee the old commissioner's illegal dealings... Then, an attack on Haven reveals some shocking truths to Nightwing and Oracle that make it difficult to recover from.

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 19, 2022

    Geraldo Borges' guest art this issue is a good fit, giving the entire affair a slightly more gritty, slightly more realist vibe than Redondo's brighter art. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Jul 26, 2022

    Nightwing's world takes a sudden turn when Blockbuster makes his presence felt and begins to strike back against the hero and his allies, with possibly dire consequences for at least one of them. This series has done such a good job building up Bldhaven and the players fighting for its very soul, and now those forces are colliding even more and it's hitting hard. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Jul 19, 2022

    Nightwing #94 is another satisfying issue courtesy of Tom Taylor and Geraldo Borges. While Borges' pencils are rougher than Redondo's, his storytelling is just as strong and maintains the series' high standards for art. For those wary of a lack of plot progression, rest assured that Taylor's script maintains the arc's quick pace and delivers a final page that is certain to shake things up more than ever before.

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Jul 19, 2022

    Nightwing #94 is a lesson in threading the needle between successful and unsuccessful slow burns in serialized fiction. The book tells a decompressed story that gives plenty of solid individual moments, but finally picks up the pace of the larger story to give the run a much needed jolt. Paired with mostly consistent art and strong colors, the issue reminds readers why this book remains a quiet favorite, popping up every month to provide some fun, well made comics. Hopefully, this issue gives that jolt needed to rocket the storyline forward, and Redondo can return in the next issue with feet running. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Steve J Ray Jul 19, 2022

    Nightwing #94 is another red-hot issue. Dick Grayson is a hero through and through and, as an ex-policeman, seeing him take down corrupt Bldhaven P.D. officers warms the heart. Dick and Babs are truly a heroic dream team in this issue, just as Blockbuster and his allies exude pure evil. As always, every character evokes an emotional response, and this month's cliffhanger really, really left me reeling. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - D.M. Grant Jul 20, 2022

    This was a chapter of plot development with forwarding progression that works well for a good pay-off if given the chance. Very solid with no real problems, but the next issue will have more riding on it with how things have ended up for Melinda here. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 19, 2022

    With his back against the wall Blockbuster finally went full villain mode as he now sets out to reclaim his power. How that is handled after Nightwing, Oracle, and others are able to accomplish against him throws a lot of things up in the air as "The Battle For Bludhaven's Heart continues. It all led to Nightwing #94 being another strong chapter in Tom Taylor's run on this series. Read Full Review

    Grayson's character-work remains unrivaled, and the addition of Geraldo Borges on art is more welcome than ever, especially when it comes to a kinetic car chase. Read Full Review
