Oct. 16 2012 Nightwing
A New York Times Best Seller!

As a part of the acclaimed DC Comics - The New 52 event of September 2011, Dick Grayson flies high once more as Nightwing in a new series from hot new writer Kyle Higgins (BATMAN: GATES OF GOTHAM) and artist Eddy Barrows (SUPERMAN)!

Haley's Circus, the big top where Dick once performed, makes a stop on its tour in Gotham City - bringing with it murder, mystery and superhuman evil. To uncover more clues as to why a mysterious assassin is targetting him, Nightwing joins the Haley's Circus tour in order to find more clues and protect those he loves. But as Dick becomes closer acquainted with the big top he grew up with, he discovers there's a much deeper, darker secret to be discovered.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the few good series from New 52 Sept. 21 2013
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nightwing Is Awesome! Jan. 14 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Alright but nothing new Dec 17 2013
By Christa Seeley TOP 500 REVIEWER
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars quick and easy purchase Dec 19 2012
By Joanna
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I did not order this for myself, my rating is based on how quickly the product got to me and that state it was in when I got it. I got the items in this order about a week after making the purchase-maybe not even a week. The items were all in great condition and I am sure the person getting this and the other comics i bought will be more than happy with them.
