Nightwing #65

Overall- Yay, another crossover.... Sarcasm doesn't really come across well over the computer does it? Bruce Wayne has been accused of shooting a radio host to death. Now, we know Bruce would never do that, because #1 he hates guns and #2, he's Batman.

But, Bruce being Bruce refuses help offered by Dick when he stops by Gotham to visit Bruce in his holding cell. Dick realizes he's going to have to help Bats, without any help from Bats himself, and contacts Barbara Gordon to help out on the case. They realize that it must be Batman, not Bruce Wayne who is the target of this frame job, so they put their heads together to figure out how many people know about Bruce's duel identity, and which of those people would want to frame him for a murder.

The rest of this issue deals with Torque and Nite-Wing starting their plans to escape from Bludhaven penitentiary. They cause a huge commotion, as well as a fire, and decide to try to slip out in the confusion.

Overall, I liked this issue, even though I don't know how the cops Dick works with can have no clue he's the adopted son of Bruce Wayne... No wonder crime is so rampant in the 'haven, the cops are idiots!

For a score, even though I only have the Nightwing issues of this crossover, I'll give this comic a 7 out of 10, because although this was a crossover, the writer(Chuck Dixon) went to great lengths to explain what was going on in the other connected comics, which helped out alot.
