Wow, Tynion really must think himself so smart with the "strawman" metaphor that wasn't AT ALL super obvious to anyone. The Harley bits were cringe, even though I'm not against her role as sidekick to Batman, it's just that the writing was painfully bad. And again with the parallels to covid quarantine. What is it with these sadist writers that instead of helping us escape this nightmare we're liv more

Yep, originality is not Tynion's strong suit. He just made some punkish versions of other existing characters. And so far none of them have been a success.

I didn't hate the New 52 at all. I liked quite a few of the runs and overall I thought that it had its place. Now, with Rebirth, and the joining of the old and new we can get the best of both worlds. This being written so long after the issue was released does mean that I have more knowledge than we all did on release day and not everything worked out well. The older continuities and N52 are still more

This is an amazingly well told and illustrated rebirth for Nightwing. I would love to see Paquette stay on a series longer and love how he depicts members of the Batfamily in particular. Seeley tugs on all of the right strings and weaves together both a fantastic end to Grayson and explosive new entry for Nightwing himself. I will always love Dick's dynamic with Damian, they play off of each other more

A solid end to the first arc. I feel it could have benefitted from an additional issue to give us more time with Raptor and Nightwing and build a deeper relationship. As it stands, he's just a guy that had his back a few times so anything monumental happening between the two in the immediate future will seem rushed. A nice cliffhanger ending involving Raptor that I am excited to see. Even though i more

A solid continuation from last issue. Raptor definitely carries the issue. His personality is starting to develop and I am enjoying his contrasting views with Nightwing while trying to be a mentor. Babs is alright and I think this issue could have been separated into two to give us more time in the maze house.

This is the follow up I was hoping for from the Rebirth issue. I am excited for the new status quo for Nightwing though as I said before, I am not a fan of the Parliament. I don't think they need anymore time in the oven. They are overdone now.

After the Rebirth issue, this doesn't seem to carry the same direction or levity established previously. Batman suddenly giving Dick the cold shoulder after embracing him tightly last issue just seems off.

Amazing start. Yang continues to show how he is one of the best writers right now. He manages to create two mini stories into one book that intersect at the end, with both taking places in different universes.

I never liked "Truth, Justice, and the American Way" for Superman's character. If anyone should care so little about being patriotic, it should be the alien that literally flies across the world to save a life when he hears someone in danger. He really cares about all of humanity, regardless of border, and I think he would be thinking specifically of the ideals Ma and Pa Kent taught him, not the soil he landed on. With that said I have nothing against whichever way he says it.
