Filler. More filler from King. At this point the entire 62 issue run has more filler than actual relevant content, and I wish that was a joke.
And also, 2 more public domain stories were just used as substitutes for this issue's lack of any story - one about three little pigs, and the other being the myth of Pygmalion and Galatea. Just put the series out of its misery, because there's 38 issu more

Comics from The 80- 2000+ were funny. Don’t think it’s that bad, I’ve read worse like Darkseid War or Rock of Ages both were awful in so many ways. Nightwing was great.

Nightwing has quickly become one of the worst books DC is currently publishing.

This issue exemplifies that. The writing, plotting, every single line of dialogue is so lazy and uninteresting it makes me wonder if anyone involved in the creative process actual wants to be doing this job. It certainly doesn't seem like it, with the complete lack of apparent effort on display in this issue more

The Nightwings have been picking up the slack Dick Grayson left behind, making a dent in petty crime and cleaning up the streets of Blüdhaven. But as Scarecrow's plan comes to fruition, it looks like they may have bitten off more than they can chew...putting Grayson in a position he was not prepared for. One where he may be forced to become a hero...

@ RBL I get that, but problem is Dick is acting pretty much the same. I hoped, that with Scarecrow as the villain we would get a better reason, why he doesn’t want to be Nightwing anymore like a fear of being shot again or even questioning his life, but DC kind of missed this opportunity. Or not being that cheerful after a trauma. Maybe even physical& psychological issues. & myconius The super - Spy Phase was awful, but you’re right. DC should have portrayed Dick more broken like when he killed

I wanted to love this, I really did. I love the old Young Justice comic but Bendis's dialogue is just hard to read. Everyone talks the exact same joking way, including the villains and it just took me out of the story. I'm hoping that it gets better from here and we get a good explanation for Superboy's return and all that but with Bendis, you just never know.

True, but like I said he also stated in an interview that Dick is a character who can change& if he hated the Ric idea so much he wouldn’t have written 50. Besides DC easily could have postponed the Ric story in Batman until Percy’s Cyber story was done. Didio doesnt hate Dick, he just stated, that his character is complicated, because he grows older. Again you are reading stuff into comments, that weren’t even said. And you begin to sound really butthurt.
