Description

And the overall storyline introduced here is interesting as well and ties into Nightwing’s arch-enemy Blockbuster and Dick’s tragic past. All the good things you hear about this book are true, and I couldn’t recommend it more for anyone looking for a great current run. The narrative thread lies with this burden of wealth that Dick has suddenly attained and his internal struggle to figure out the best way to utilize it. To them, Dick is a mere nuisance and there is a certain lack of stakes that goes hand in hand with that. However, as much as Alfred is no longer around, the few scenes that evoke the late butler play as an emotional tribute to him, from his letter to Dick, to Batman’s only line.

I've ignored Nightwing's solo book for more than a decade now, so I missed all the agent of Spyral and Ric Grayson stuff, but I thought I'd give the new Vol. But Taylor is also, luckily, self-aware enough to wrap this bluntness in candy-colored art from Bruno Redondo and tons of action, which is breezy and fast-paced, so that you almost don't see the heaping portions of moralization thrown at you. It’s a soft reboot at its core, throwing Dick into a new situation and given a problem he can’t solve via his usual methods.And Batman and Babs get all misty-eyed that he is going to help the city by creating a philanthropic foundation for the poor.

I haven’t read Nightwing in years - apparently he recently suffered head trauma and thought he was someone else for a spell? Depending on how long this storyline is going to be, so far this is a perfect jump-in for anyone wanting to read the solo adventures of Dick Grayson. He’s wearing half of Anarky’s mask for some reason and his MO is to remove the victim’s heart and put it in a jar - literally making them less of a heart.

Taylor has a good handle on the Bat-family and I'm excited to see where this run goes in the future.
