Nightwing #56

Overall- OK, we finally get Shrike and Nightwing face to face! But before we get to the main event, we have some sub plots to deal with... We find out in this issue that apparently Dick stayed with Babs for quite some time and was discovered by Black Canary, while he was taking a shower. Needless to say, Dick, thoroughly embarrassed, gets the hell out of there.

When Dinah asks Babs exactly what Nightwing was doing at her house and more to the point, in her shower, Babs says they were just "talking", and that nothing happened... She does later admit that she has really fallen hard for Dick, but doesn't elaborate on exactly how far things went, despite Dinah's prodding.

Meanwhile, Shrike tells Blockbuster that he recognizes Nightwing from back in his Robin days, and has some sort of a grudge. Shrike makes his move on Nightwing, luring him into a trap and catching him in a big net covered in fish hooks. Heh heh. I couldn't make that kind of stuff up no matter how hard I try! Anyway, Nightwing, now incapacitated by the net(hahaha...)realizes he knows Shrike, and thought he was dead.

That's what you call a cliffhanger ending boys and girls. All in all, I liked this issue and I must admit, any villain who literally throws a net with fish hooks at someone has won me over as a fan. Yep, I'm that easy to please! This comic gets a 7 1/2 out of 10
