Pretty great conclusion. Art by Tony Daniel was fantastic as usual and I liked how the fairytale connected to the story at the end. It makes me excited for what's coming next.

My love of Nightwing is complicated... I like to read about Nightwing, but I don’t really know who the character is, as he seems to have a constantly changing (and sparingly used) supporting cast, less than compelling villains, and a rotating-door of a love life, so I’ve always felt it’s been hard for me to really grasp who he is on his own... I’m looking forward to seeing how Ben Percy wr more

Great review! I agree 100%!

There was nothing bold about any of this. It’s literally just another murder mystery with poor writing and characterization with a bunch of deaths for shock value.

i didn't have the highest expectations, but i did hope it'd to be better than this.
the art is really stunning. once again Lee Bermejo has to carry Azzarello's 'meh' writing.
without a good story to compliment the art this comic feels empty.

Overall, a good story. It lost points for misuse of “you’re” instead of “your” on page 29. Gordon to Batman: “I’m sure you’re (sic) presence is needed elsewhere.”

It should read either: “you’re needed elsewhere” or “your presence is needed elsewhere.”
