Nightwing #59

Overall- This issue was basically just a quick story about the only other mafia boss in Bludhaven(besides Blockbuster) Freddy Minh. Freddy is the the undisputed drug lord of the 'Haven, but nobody has ever laid eyes on him, Nightwing included.

Dick finally has enough and decides he is going to find Freddy and bring him to justice. Unfortunately, Freddy's underlings are terrified of ratting out their boss and won't help Dick, no matter what he threatens them with. Dick finally decides the only way to get info on Freddy is right at his house, which is a variable fortress.

Dick manages to gain access, and makes his way into a secret lab in the basement, where several doctor's are working on babies. Dick is confronted by Freddy's wife, who tells him that she killed Freddy long ago, but has kept his name alive, because of the fear it instilled into everyone on the streets of Bludhaven.

She then tells Dick that the babies are hers, created with some of Freddy's umm... Lets say "genetic materials" and leave it at that. Dick, having his answers concerning the where abouts of Freddy, leaves, not having any way of proving anything Freddy's wife told him. Heh heh heh... I liked this issue. I could see the twist coming with Freddy, but I enjoyed it nonetheless when it was revealed. I'll give this comic a 7 out of 10.
