“A B Horror Movie Stuffed with All the Fellow Kids Material”

Score: 3.0/10

Pros:
-Nothing. This issue will make you cringe, be confused and cry once you realized you bought this.

Cons:
-The art sucked this issue. It used to have a lot of details, but now most of it look like rough sketches. It doesn’t have the amount of care it had before.

“Finally Speeding Up in Bludhaven’s Hyper-Loop”

Score: 8.5/10

Pros:
-The art is amazing. It’s not perfect, but I prefer grit in my art. It mixes well with the story. A Cyber Horror unleased upon Nightwing and Bludhaven.
-The flow of the story is back. I was annoyed at the past issues because of slow plot progression. This issue is a constant adrenaline drive more

i should have known to stay away the first time i left this series. but i allowed myself to be lured back with false hope. what's worse is so many stories leading up to this issue have been nothing more than useless filler!!

Hey now, I really liked BvS. Don’t try to tarnish that by associating it with Tom King. Lol

myconius - Jul 8, 2018

Talon1load - you're right! to be fair, i really enjoyed BvS when i saw it in the theater. i even bought the blu ray as well. but it definitely is a guilty pleasure. i can admittedly see it for all it's flaws. but as you said, it DOES NOT deserve to be lumped in with the filthy mess that is Tom King's Batman. lol

don't sweat it. we all wanted to believe. but DC has burned us so many times before. i look at all the time and money i've wasted on both Batman Eternal series just to get a padded story with a giant flop of an ending.

This needs to be returnable. DC lied to us and betrayed our trust. The same goes to King. No story can change that.

“Holy Babysitter, Batman!”

Score: 6.3/10

Pros:
-Art is the major good point of this issue. There are a lot of artists. It’s amazing how each art style fits their respective characters.
-A slight good is Nightwing has finally grown a part of a backbone.
-I love this team composition. It fills the team roles perfectly. Kind of reminds me of the New Teen more

“Changes and Novel Ideas”

Score: 6.2/10

Pros:
-Art is still good. Some people might not like it since it may look outdated. But I find it unique and perfect for the story.
-Connects with the last issue brilliantly. Imagine you are reading a novel, then this is Chapter 2.
-Story is still asking the hard questions.

Cons:

Nightwing investigates a string of murders that at first seem disconnected... but when signs start to point to the digital underworld, the mean streets of Blüdhaven begin to transform. So how does a hero like Dick Grayson - used to using his fists to solve problems - stop a villain he can't get his hands on? Especially when Blüdhaven isn'...

Great start to an arc! I’m glad that even though Dick is not that big a fan of technology, he still knows how to work and figure out today’s tech, like the one with the phones and figuring out how the Phantasm device works.

The story is intriguing enough to hook me in, great action in the beginning of the issue, good humour, and the art is reminiscent of a better looking John Romita more

I won't call what he did figuring out how Phantasm work; more of testing Phantasm and being a little careless. But nice review :)

"You Will Be Hearing Old a Lot"

Score: 7.2/10

Pros:
-Art was very old school. This comic is for those 90's fans and kids. Do you 'member 90's kids?
-Very dark and intelligent story
-Has the capacity to question the dangers of technology
-It also questions our loss of privacy
-Nightwing was charmingly fun
-So was his old time friend in Gotham >
Cons:
-Nightwing is an old man... and Superman (phone booths?!)...
-Did Batman train Nightwing when he was Robin in technology? Then he should at least have a good grasp at technology.
-Felt too slow with numerous storylines introduced. I like numerous storylines, but for the first issue I would like to be hooked first.
-No hook... The coolest part was the first panels. The next panels felt like reading a novel. I won't call the last page as a hook. More of a cliffhanger.

I am looking forward to the next issue with realistic pessimism. I hope the storylines get lessen the next issue and for some answers to be given. In reviews there will always be the "Floppies Vs. Trade" argument. Right now, it is better to wait for the trade; but remember this is the first issue only. Thanks for reading. more
