An incredibly heart-warming start to this new run of Nightwing. The issue has everything from amazing illustrations, colours and just as amazing writing. It even manages to plant seeds for the plot among all the emotion present in this issue.

A very good start with wonderful promise. It's a good time to be a Nightwing fan and a great starting point if you're looking to be one.

When Nightwing enlists Batgirl’s help in investigating the politician bearing the same name as the man who murdered his parents, she unearths details that will shock and fundamentally change the h...

Man some fans/readers are salty as hell. Lol

Honestly after years of mediocre to down right trash Nightwing issues for the past couple of years. Nice to finally get my #1 favorite comic book character back to prominence like he should be.

Don't mind them. I hate toxic Nightwing fans. They are so traumatized that their entitlement becomes irrational.

They're salty Scott Lobdell fans from /co/, and triggering them is so much fun.

8.5

The 8.5 is really for Justice League Dark, great first issue to open up a new chapter in what’s already been an amazing run. Bendis’s Justice League was okay, the art was phenomenal but the story wasn’t too compelling. Seems like it’ll be fun but from this issue, my expectations are staying low
