The New 52: Nightwing

Postby Dedicatedfollower467 » Sat Oct 22, 2011 6:26 pm

I'm going to start this post just because no one else has done it yet. And because Nightwing has bumped Nightcrawler out as my favorite comic book character (GASP!)

I'm really enjoying this series so far. I like how the very beginning shows us a lot of the difference between Bruce and Dick, and the difference between Dick as Batman and Dick as Nightwing. Didn't particularly like the new color for him, but if red and black are the new Batfamily team colors, whatever.

Dick's thought-boxes are spot-on; he reads a little like a cross between Spiderman's banter, Deadpool's jokes, and the old-school Robin puns. There were points where his sarcastic comments made me literally laugh out loud.

What do you guys think? Or am I the only person who picked up Nightwing?

(And btw I'm back officially now. I missed you guys!)

RIP Kurt Wagner. You were the character who brought in me into comics, who introduced me and inspired me. Now your death has sent me away again. Wherever you are in the Marvel Universe, I hope its someplace pleasant.

I wanted to read this, but I'm so out of the loop on everything with Nightwing from back during his Blüdhaven stuff, that I just figured I'd sit it out.

Then I remembered it's suppose to be a "Fresh start".


Then I remembered I don't have money to keep funding DC's "Fresh Start" titles, so I'm sitting on it 'til the trade comes out.

Good to see someone likes it though. It appears he'll be showing up in the next issue of Batgirl! Which makes me really question the entire timeline of everything now. Isn't he supposed to be in Florida in his own title?

No, he's working out of Gotham.



How many masked vigilantes does Gotham really need? And how much good have they actually done?

For me, Nightwing is to DC what Nightcrawler is to Marvel...the only character in their stables that I really give a damn about and so the only one I read.

However, I was kind of between jobs when the listing for this book came up (long story...former boss was a total arse and cut my hours way back for absolutely no reason), so I didn't order it because I wasn't sure if I should be buying comics when I was short on cash.

But then I got a new job...but the first issue was sold out...so I got it digitally (my comicshop guy is going to get the first, and all future issues, for me though). It's shaping up quite nicely...though I wonder who started that rumor about Dick...

Middle of reading issue 4, and I loved the artwork much better than the other 3 issues.

While I'm not a big enough fan of the series to go dig out some cash and pay for them, I'd pick up the trades for sure. A character I enjoy but not a character I anxiously give a damn about each month. I can be patient and wait for his stuff to roll into a full volume or two.


Either way, if I can keep up with my friends' digital comics I might be just as satisfied. The story is ... good. It's not amazing, but it's growing. I think the last 2 issues of Batman & Robin have done more or Damian and Bruce's character than the first 3 issues of Nightwing did for Dick.

In all honesty, I am half-into finishing issue 4 (about 3 pages in) simply because of Babs. Ever since her return to the Bat-Tights, and since her leaving of the wheels, she's gotten harder to tolerate. She's certainly been dumbed down and sexed up, and her characters brilliance and ability to adapt to dangerous situations, her general bravery, seems to be masked by idiotic, teenage hormones/mistakes. They're turning her into DC's female Peter Parker. Essentially, Spider-girl for DC.
But this is mostly due to Gail Simone's shitty writing. I look forward to seeing if someone can make her actually... decent. Here's hoping Nightwing #'s 4 & 5 do that for me.

I might be picking this title up if New52 Flash continues the way it is.

I might wait for this silly Owl Court to be done with though.
