Quick thoughts on Nightwing Annual #1

Overall- I read this quickly between classes yesterday, so it's not really fresh on my mind. The gist of this comic is that Bats and Nightwing think a woman is marrying millionaire husbands then killing them off to collect their money. What ingenious plan do they concoct? Why, have Dick marry her of course, so she'll try to kill him!

Dick plays up the role of Bruce Wayne's....Whatever the hell he was to Bruce at this time, ward, adopted son, something else altogether? Well the charade pays off and Dick proposes to the woman, Emily I believe her name was, and she says yes.

They go through with the ceremony, but Dick destroys the marriage certificate instead of filing it with City Hall. To make a long story short, it turns out Emily's best friend was responsible for killing off Emily's husbands, hoping Emily will take the fall for it and wind up in prison. Some friend.

Anyway, Dick figures it all out and has Emily's friend arrested, before telling Emily that they were never really married. He never does explain to Emily who he was(Nightwing) or why Bruce Wayne's billionaire son/ward(?) was investigating the deaths of her ex-husbands. Don't you think she'd be a little curious as to why Dick Grayson, playboy, was so determined to solve this crime??? Weird little plot holes aside, I liked this comic, it was a fun little murder mystery. I'll give it a 7 out of 10.
