    If you buy one superhero book this week, make it Nightwing: The New Order #2. I would argue there's one better comic out this week, but it has the advantage in that it's the last issue of a series. If you don't read superhero comics, give this one a shot, it's a good story that uses DC elements, but is strong enough to stand apart from the pack. It's a hell of a read. Read Full Review

    Another intriguing instalment of this mini-series has me impatiently waiting for issue 3 to hit stands next month. If you like proper speculative fiction filled with allegory and character driven stories, then I urge you to give Nightwing: The New Order a try. Read Full Review

    Wow. Just wow. I must have said the word to myself five plus times while reading this issue. Higgins is masterfully weaving reality and fiction together and I can't wait to see what he does next. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 27, 2017

    Don't let the elseworlds nature of this mini series throw you off, it is a must read for Dick Grayson fans and anyone else who wants something dark and different.  I am worried with Metal going on and Doomsday Clock looming, this will get overlooked.  Don't let that happen! Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Indiana “Indy” Marlow Sep 27, 2017

    I put down this latest issue craving my next fix and angry that I have to wait for more answers. The New Order is well worth the read for any Grayson fans, or anyone who likes a story that shines a light on current affairs. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Aug 18, 2018

    I am not familiar with Trevor McCarthy, but he adds a lot of grit and realism to this story. I like the double-page spread of the Justice League going after the Legion of Doom. It felt like a classic shot of the old Super Friends cartoon series. The colouring reminds me of the one used in The Golden Age, drawn by Paul Smith. Strong magentas, oranges, and blues adorn the page and almost make the artwork suffocate. But the blacks still come off as very strong. Its an interesting mix. Read Full Review

    I enjoyed this issue and can not wait for the next one. the art is great and the writing is really good. I would recommend this to anyone who wants an interesting read. I do think this should be more of a graphic novel then a mini series. besides that its pretty good. Read Full Review

    GWW - Christopher Rodriguez Sep 26, 2017

    This issue really breaks down Dick Grayson's motivations and super-powered conundrum. It gets to the point much faster than expected, which I suppose is better then never having one to begin with. But this creative team does an excellent job of world-building, it makes you want to spend time in it a little longer. Two issues in and this series is so good that it'll make you sad that there's only four more to go. Read Full Review

    Overall, the story is dark and mysterious which are two things I love. It may have a familiar feel to it, but Ill still be in line to find out whats going to happen the Graysons in the next issue. This one is worth a read for sure. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Reed Strong Sep 28, 2017

    Unlike Secret Empire, this is a book about fascism. It's about dealing with Dick's choices and the regime he's lead, specifically what can happen when he becomes a victim himself. We continue to get just a really well-told elseworlds in this issue; finding out a bit more about what the hell happened, as well as getting another always heart-breaking loss of a beloved father figure.

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Sep 27, 2017

    The ideas are there, it's just that the execution isn't quite delivering yet. Higgins starts off strong with a gorgeously illustrated and engaging flashback sequence that's much more interesting than the actual narrative, which is rather slow, cold, and dare I say boring. There's still plenty of time for the story to come together, and Higgins has been hinting at some pretty interesting developments in upcoming issues, but as a wholeNightwing: The New Order has yet to take off.
