I love Nightwing!! What a wonderful start for Dick Grayson in The New 52! I first really got to know Nightwing when I read Vol. 3 as I read through the "Death of a Family" arc and I ordered Vol. 1 & 2 right away as I knew I had to follow him from the beginning. He is one of my favourite Gotham characters. This first volume pretty much starts Nightwing off where he was pre-52, coming off of being The Batman and returning to his own beloved Nightwing. Dick meets up with Haly's Circus again and old friends, though not much backstory is given for him yet, we do get secondhand information, the tale of his parents death and a good feel for where he came from. This is pretty much a self-contained story that ends by the final issue and was a thrilling read with lots of surprises. Dick faces new enemies and only briefly crosses paths with Batgirl so not a lot of familiar faces leaving Nightwing as the main focus. The final issue brings in a small tie to the Court of Owls (which I've read) which was exciting (for me) to get that extra tidbit. Then the book sets up the beginning of the next arc. The art is fantastic. I adore Nightwing's costume and can't wait to catch up with Volume 2.

I bought this volume just to see if I would love Nightwing as much as I liked him in the New Titans and guess what? I do! The story was very addictive and Nightwing just got a new fan and I've already bought the second volume! Can't wait to see what's coming up next! The writing is good, the drawings are nice and the scenery very detailed. I wish they would have an artist who would draw uniquely like they do with Greg Capullo for Batman, but nonetheless, Nightwing is very addictive!

Very solid storytelling for one of my favourite characters. Introduces some great new characters and does a wonderful job creating an all-new history for Grayson and his family. While not a fan of The New 52 as a whole, I am excited to see what more is to come from this series. Excellent artwork really ties it all together to create one of the best comic series in a long time.

By Christa Seeley TOP 500 REVIEWER on Dec 17 2013
Format: Paperback
I have a complicated relationship with this character. On one hand he’s very charming and very easy to grow attached to. Right from the get go in this volume Kyle Higgins establishes him as a more human version of Batman. He lives in the neighbourhoods he’s trying to protect, he throws his costume on the floor etc. He’s also quite witty and determined – commendable qualities for sure.

However his own again off again relationship with Barbara Gordon (my favourite member of the DC Universe by far) kind of sours the whole experience for me. But anyway, this is the New 52, so let’s all try to put that behind us and begin again with Mr Dick Grayson.

The most obvious thing about this collection is that there is a lot of internal dialogue. Nightwing is a thinker. And there’s a lot of external dialogue as well. He is also a talker. Sometimes this is a bonus because you always know what’s going on, everything is spelled right out for you on the page. But other times I just wanted him to let me figure it out for myself. I’m all for banter but sometimes action is better.

Extended dialogue aside Nightwing is a rather admirable character. I think Kyle Higgins did a great job bringing out that more human quality. Dick Grayson is someone more people can relate and he has more “normal” relationships than Batman does. And he manages to do this despite his tumultuous history (growing up in a circus, seeing his parents murdered, being raised by Batman etc). Or at the very least Grayson does his best. He wants to be that person and I can respect his for that, despite his dubious romantic entanglements.

Like the Batman and Batgirl titles, Nightwing isn’t a full reboot. There is some information that is tossed out casually as though you (the reader) must already know it.
