The Nightwing title comes to a close as Dick Grayson goes undercover. But what does he do before that?
It’s a promising start for this secret-agent-Grayson thing that’s going to be happening. I think Seeley and King have a good handle on what they want to do and the characters they want involved. The whole shirtless-fighting thing was a little shady, but, of course, not the first time that’s happened. I really did appreciate their characterization of Dick, though. I think it was very fitting that, regardless of Bruce’s logic, Dick’s number one priority was his family.
I enjoyed the art for this one. There were a lot of people involved, and I think they each did a great job for their sections. They each really got the emotions of each section across in great subtle ways. I really have no complaints in this aspect of the issue.
I feel like this would have been better as a number-one, or even number-zero, issue to the Grayson title, as opposed to the ending for Nightwing. And that opinion was only solidified by seeing some art from what the original final Nightwing issue was supposed to be.
Regardless, a solid start for what already is looking to be an interesting series. Dick Grayson doesn’t need a mask to kick a lot of bad guy butt!
