Review: Nightwing #24

Nightwing has a problem. He’s trapped in a submarine with a gaggle of the DCU’s nastiest villains. There is an escape pod, if he can reach it. This secret social club of super-villainy is set on keeping him from his goal. Some are familiar faces, and a few I don’t altogether recognize. But any one of those I know would present a challenge to one of the few super-heroes who has no actual super-powers.

Unbeknownst to the former Boy Wonder, his personal life may in for a significant change. But details on that will (hopefully) be revealed in a future issue. Either way, Nightwing’s future does not bode well for the future of his “new” home in Bludhaven. The cops hate him, the criminals hate him, and the general population can be as fickle as all get out.

Miguel Mendonca returns to the art chores, and of the artists who have handled the book since I’ve been reading it, he is one of my favorites. He has clean style that reminds me of early Adam Hughes. To often these days, artwork comes over-dressed, but here it’s dressed down and simple. I am uncertain how much inker Diana Conesa has to do with that, but clearly they make a good team. I hope they stick around.

The ending is somewhat clichéd. It’s a common cliffhanger we’ve seen many time before, and will no doubt see again. But I’m comfortable with that so long as the entire story does not hinge upon it. Future issues will tell.

Rating: 7/10
