YourGreenMuse reviewed Nightwing #57 Feb 20, 2019

Found this to be really boring, but if we push through some of the bad characterizations, maybe this can be something that works.

Darkseid24 - Feb 20, 2019

It’s going on for a few issues though, but so many repetitive things here. Joker’s Daugther really surprisingly was. I normally don’t like her.

RBL - Feb 22, 2019

There has been no progress at all in regards to any of the characters, especially in a protagonist that keeps contradicting most of his choices. Unsurprisingly this leads to a bad book. But it’s been bad since issue #50 so it’s hardly a surprise. A villain more lackluster than the last and a love interest thet just seems to be specifically made for this arc leads me to believe she won’t stick around and just be a plot device here. Seems like the beginning of another mediocre arc.

I don't like Roundhouse or his mom. It really added nothing to the story. Djinn and Robin's romance is still gross. Crush is the only thing I liked here.

I'm never going to be able to get around how, in order for this story to work, characters have to act completely out of character.
