    Ive honestly barely scratched the surface of the sheer depth contained within this issue and what the different portrayals and discussions raised from the panels are, but suffice to say that this series feels like one for a long-term fan. Were seeing a continued progression of our childhood dealing with adult issues. It makes you think, it makes you reminisce, it keeps you uncomfortable but fascinated all at the same time. And while the action takes another step up like it has done in the past, this latest issue once again sets you up to rush out and buy the next. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Reed Strong Nov 23, 2017

    This book has been a bit of an oddity; announced among so many other tales of superheroes gone fascist regimes, those who were familiar enough with Kyle Higgins figured they knew what to expect, but still anticipated some very different context. And that's what we got, and are continuing to get especially as we get to the see some of the original New Teen Titans together in one of the first times since the New 52 began. But an elseworlds is an elseworlds, as we get more heartbreak, more backstory, and more suffering. Read Full Review

    This miniseries continues see-sawing between an out-of-character mess and an intriguing dystopia with just enough interesting elements to make it work. Read Full Review

    McCarthy is good with action scenes and emotional ones. Starfires face does change a bit and looks a bit odd. His layouts are packed which means he can tell a lot of story in mere pages. A device he likes to use which fits the theme of the comic is the black gutter space. In some flashback scenes, there are no frames around the panels who appear to float on a white background. These tricks all work and give his works a sense of maturity and professionalism. Read Full Review

    GWW - Christopher Rodriguez Nov 21, 2017

    It was great seeing a new take on the old Titans. Another good issue in this underrated miniseries. Though this issue slowed things down a bit, it's a damn shame more people aren't talking about The New Order. This is a classic that people will always reference when talking about best Nightwing runs. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Nov 27, 2017

    Nightwing: The New Order #4 is another solid issue that further developed the world into a place a ton of history. The full introduction of the Titans Resistance and Dick Grayson's standing with them provided us with plenty of intriguing scenes, specifically when it came to those shared by Dick Grayson and Starfire. Now as Kyle Higgins and Trevor McCarthy move forward it will be interesting to see how things end up with what we learn about the game changing character in Nightwing: The New Order #4.

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Nov 22, 2017

    After taking some pretty substantial steps forward, The New Order has fallen back again. Never bad, just dull and slow, it's unclear what Higgins is trying to say with this story. Even Dick Grayson, one of the most fully realized characters in comics, comes across as two-dimensional at best, and what should have been a sure thing in having him interact with his former Titans teammates instead falls flat. The visuals have even begun to suffer again, eschewing some of McCarthy's inventiveness and flair he showcased last month in favor of sterile, lifeless environments. I hope the final two issues turn it around, but as of now this series has its work cut out for it. Read Full Review
