Nightwing #7 Review

I’m a big fan of Mr. Grayson. In my mind, he’s one of the few Bat-family members that can actually hold his own book together – but does the post-Grayson Nightwing live up to the character, and is this book good?

Nightwing #7 (DC Comics)

Yeah, that’s not a good sign.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

So on the one hand, there are some characters introduced post-New 52 that have been worth the hype. Duke Thomas is a great example.

Raptor, in my opinion, is not, and while the Court of Owls as a nameless entity is excellent, the specific Talons and other various permutations are just not that interesting to me.

With so much of this book being touted as Raptor’s big coming out party – I was kind of meh on it, with the exception of the open and close of the book.

Is It Good?

Kinda? I feel like this Nightwing series is really trying to find its footing, and could use a good run of Bludhaven like crime-fighting and mystery to refill the tank on Dick’s character. Instead, it’s a shadow of Grayson with the far flung locales and only a passing moment of that Gotham City magic.

Overall – I’ll give this a 6.5 out of 10 – it’s got some high points and is trying to come back to solid ground, but it’s just not there yet.
