‘Nightwing’ #105 gives us a whole new perspective

Furthermore, this is a great starting point for the next big chapter in the series.

After a brief break, Nightwing is back as a book that focuses on solely Nightwing. So much so that this issue will read from the perspective of Dick Grayson from start to finish. This isn’t the first time that the title is being creative with its layout – Nightwing #87 was a continuous page spread from start to finish. This time, Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo reunite in another exciting take on storytelling.

The issue opens with Dick, Barbara, and Haly starting a typical morning together. Pretty much immediately, you can notice the different styles of direction for this issue. Although there still are bad guys to beat and people to save, this issue takes a lighter approach. There is a significant story development throughout this issue, and it’s handled rather well in this first-person perspective art style. Tom Taylor has taken his time drawing out one of the underlying plot points in the series, but there is some significant payoff throughout the story. Although opening with a rather campy mission, the plot develops in a fun way that builds up the plot at a decent pacing.

Bruno Redondo outdoes himself once again on the art. From a standard lens, the issue looks as great as all his other works. Things can shift from cute to intense in a matter of panels. At this point, Adriano Lucas is one of the best colorists in the industry, and his work on Nightwing has shown time and time again why that’s the case.

From a creative lens, this issue is very enjoyable. The first-person point-of-view depiction of the story helps put the reader in Nightwing’s shoes (mask?) for a day. The movement in the issue is very fluid and makes for a fun read. This issue was a great example of taking the normalities in storytelling and expanding on them to create something new and exciting.

Overall, Nightwing #105 is a strong issue that delivers development necessary to push the story forward. Between the last arc focusing on a back-door launch for Titans and the 100th issue closing the first chapter of the story, there hasn’t been a lot of individual development lately. This issue rectifies that while showcasing a unique twist that only the most skillful artists could pull off. Furthermore, Nightwing #105 is a great starting point for the next big chapter in the series.
