Heartless has an extra-giant jar that has Blockbuster's name on it, but as a man of refined taste, Heartless doesn't just collect any type of heart...he waits for someone to experience a specific emotion in particular before taking it all away from them and adding it into his collection. Does Nightwing have what it takes to save the life of the very man who's been trying to take everything away from Dick Grayson, including his life?

    Nightwing's war with Blockbuster definitely raises the stakes in Bludhaven and a big cliffhanger ensures things will dramatically change for Dick Grayson going forward. It's Taylor, Redondo, Lucas and Aboott. Don't miss this one even if it's your first time checking out this amazing Nightwing run. Read Full Review

    The Nightwing/Blockbuster dynamic takes a drastic turn this month, one that means their relationship will never be the same again. In fact, it makes the previous issue's shocking ending feel positively tame by comparison.The next month's gonna drag! Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Aug 16, 2022

    The first time I really felt like I wanted to give a 6/5 as a score on a comic occurred when reviewing Injustice 2 Annual #2. Nightwing #95 has so many similar elements, even if it leans more into the fun than the psychological. It should come as no surprise both these issue are by Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo. Is there any doubt that Nightwing is DC's best mainstream superhero title? Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Aug 16, 2022

    Nightwing has been consistent thus far, if sometimes a little slow, so the series deserves the benefit of the doubt. Outside of its last page reveal, Nightwing #95 is a near-perfect issue and a return to form for the juggernaut team of Taylor, Redondo, and Lucas, doing a lot of work to highlight the past and future of Nightwing. Hopefully, the team will be able to stick with the landing of the Blockbuster arc, and at the very least, the run (and issue in particular) has given Nightwing a strong supporting cast and visual style that should continue long past this story.

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Aug 16, 2022

    Nightwing #95 is a thrilling and expertly drawn issue from Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo. There is a definite emphasis on action and spectacle in these past few issues, but Taylor's slower pace beforehand makes this change of pace work. While some of the fan service moments can be overdone, it's hard to deny how entertaining it is to finally see Dick turn the tables on Blockbuster and his cronies. The series is as focused as ever at this point and Taylor has set himself up well for the inevitable climax coming in the next months. Read Full Review
