How nice to read a Nightwing comic that doesn’t utterly suck. It’s been literally years. Can’t wait for Taylor’s run. That looks fantastic but this was pretty okay too. It’s about time!

Would I feel the same way about Future State Nightwing if there hadn't been an awful storyline before it? I don't know, but it was no less than great to finally see Dick Grayson in action again without the baggage and mishandling of the last 2+ years.

Constant showcases what makes Dick so competent. His Dick is permitted to be smart and a leader. And that's about all fans have been want more

I actually liked both of these stories. Joshua Williamson did a good job working on the relationship of the new JL, and Ram V proved he can write JL Dark just fine without working off of James Tynion IV's existing outline.

Stephanie Phillips did a fine job, however the ending feels a bit weak. The art by Di Meo is both incredible, but also overly processed. If they cut back a bit on the effects, they could be a truly top tier artist.

I really enjoy these one-shots. As amazing as Ewing's run is, these side-stories are welcome change of place to the world of Immortal Hulk, as they explore stories that the main issues won't. These aren't necessary, but they offer a bit hope that there are writers who can write Hulk after Ewing's run inevitably ends (which I hope won't happen anytime soon).

I give it a 3 solely for Mann's art which is as great as ever, but the story was pure horseshit. Yes, the usual King fanboys will rate it with 10, 9.5 or 9 but don't believe that, they would rate it the same way if King would fill the book with "Bat", "Cat" and "Mreeeow", they're just brainwashed and want so badly to feel smart. And I've said this before, the title of the book is pure bait, Batman more

Okay first of all, I am a Tom King fanboy, I do admit that. I like most of his work, except HiC. Being upset about his run at all is fine with me, especially if you felt betrayed by issue 50. I think a lot of people did. I did come off as a bit hostile. My bad. I'm in the wrong. I have seen large groups of people harassing Tom King and everything he does, I may have mistaken you for that. Also again nothing wrong with disagreeing with me on his Batman.
