COMIC REVIEW: FTN reviews Nightwing #30

June 4th, 2014 by Sarah Barclay Comments

Writers: Tim Seeley & Tom King

Artists: Javier Garron, Jorge Lucas, Mikel Janin, Gullermo Ortego

Published by DC Comics

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!

Self proclaimed as hilarious, Sarah is a strange mixture of weird human and sports fan. Hailing from Pittsburgh, PA (but currently studying photography in Ohio) she spends most of her time running into tables and tripping over herself while waiting for a TARDIS to show up in the courtyard. If not in a tree or receiving medical attention, she can be found on the tweeter-box (@alfredthebatcat) ranting about ice hockey, baseball or her undying love of Dick Grayson.
