I enjoy the team-up, though I have not kept up with Wally’s role in the current Rebirth era of the DCU. I Don’t care much for his costume. It’s similar to that of Barry Allen’s, but with light blue accents rather than yellow. As modifications go, it’s far too subtle, and does almost nothing to distinguish himself from his mentor.
Michael McMillan wrote this issue, displacing previous Nightwing writer Tim Seely.
Whether this is a permanent change is unknown, but certainly after 20 issues,
Seely is entitled to a rest. He definitely is in need of a recharge, as recent stories
have been disappointing at best.
Duce is also new to the team, bringing a refreshing style change to that of Javier
Fernandez, who has also been in a marathon drawing session for several issues.
Duce has a more traditional style, of bolder lines rather than endless
cross-hatching. Such style has its place, but I don’t believe Nightwing is the proper place for it.
