Nightwing #102

Nightwing: Year One, Part 2(of 6).

Overall- So, after the events of last issue, Dick Grayson, the now former Robin, goes looking for someone to talk to and arrives in Metropolis to speak to Superman(?). Dick tells Supes that Batman fired him as Robin, and asks what he should do. Superman, after he gets over the initial surprise of Dick getting "fired"(Superman:"He can't fire you!"), shares with Dick the tale of a Kryptonian super hero by the name of Nightwing. The Kryptonian Nightwing was cast out by his family, but continued to serve the people of Krypton regardless. After hearing this tale, Dick thanks Superman for his time, and decides to return to his roots, going back to the carnival his parents worked for, while he continued to try to sort things out. Meanwhile, Batman discovers Jason Todd trying to steal the tires off the Batmobile, and takes him back to the Batcave with him.

I liked this comic, even though I was a little bit surprised/confused that Dick decided to talk to Superman about his Batman related problems. Out of everybody Dick knows, he goes to Superman??? Why? It was also a little bit creepy that Batman tied up Jason Todd, and left the poor kid sitting in the Batcave. All in all, this was a solid comic book, and for a score, I'll go with a 7 out of 10.
