First of the three reviews on tap for tonight? Nightwing. Much like Red Hood and the Outlaws, this is a series I REALLY want to like... Sadly, that hasn't happened yet... Will the Night of the Owls give this series a good storyline to follow, something that has been missing from it since it's beginning? I don't know... But let's find out!
Summary: While investigating some crime that occurred in Gotham with one of his own escrima sticks, Nightwing gets the call from Alfred(which happened in Batman #8) to assist the city's movers and shakers since they had all been targeted for death by the Court of Owls. Nightwing, being near the mayor's mansion, heads there, just in time to prevent one of the Talons from killing the mayor. However, another Talon takes the fallen one's place, and this Talon is? An angry ancestor of Dick Grayson, embarrassed by what his descendant has become.
Thoughts: There we go, a nice, short review! With how many hours I've been putting in at work, I really needed a comic like this! Anyway, this was a good read. It was a lot like Red Hood and the Outlaws in some ways... The main character(in this case, Nightwing) got away from the bad main storyline that's been plaguing the series(same as Red Hood), and as a result the comic was a much better read(for me anyway). Maybe ALL of the Bat-writers should just follow whatever Scott Snyder is doing in Batman, because following his plot is working big time.
Score: 7 1/2 out of 10.
Yeah, that's not going to help those “Nightwing is a murderer” rumors go away...
