Nightwing #57

Overall- OK, this Shrike is someone from a comic called Robin:Year One. I'll have to be on the look out for that one. Anyway, this issue deals with the aftermath of Dick getting captured and unmasked by Shrike. Not only that, but he takes Dick's fingerprints, in order to discover his secret identity, and through that the identity of Batman.

Luckily, Babara Gordon has a computer program that feeds a false name to anybody who tries to run a scan of one of the Bat families prints. Now that Babs knows something has happened to Dick, she gets Black Canary, and the two of them go looking for Dick.

Dick manages to escape his imprisonment and beat up most of Shrike's ninja cronies, but as he confronts Shrike, he realizes there a LOT more ninjas then he originally thought. A good fun issue, that shows that Babs is really the backbone of the Bat family. She has so many measures in place looking out for Batman and his allies that without her, I think they'd all be dead by now. Fun read, that I'll score a 7 out of 10.
