Review: Nightwing #29

If you’re a regular reader of Nightwing, be prepared for disappointment – unless you also happen to be reading the Metal storyline running through a number of DC comics. However, if you’re a fan of Game of Thrones, you may find the issue entirely to your liking.

Mr. Freeze has been freed from Arkham, and has pummeled Gotham City with a blizzard the like of which not seen since January, 1978. Everything is at a standstill, save a few members of the Bat Family and a handful of friends and enemies. Under Nightwing’s leadership, they locate a hidden cache of weapons that literally give them the edge to defeat Freeze. But it may just be a matter of “out of the fridge and into the freezer,” as things stumble from bad to worse.

Not having read prior installments of Metal, I’m at a loss for the overall narrative. But I do like the artwork. If there are any fantasy books in DC’s future (Warlord Rebirth, perhaps), Pelletier and Hennessy would be welcome team for the drawing board.

As Metal continues making it’s way through the various titles of the DC Universe, it’s unknown what the Nightwing title will be in the months to come. DC loves its mega-event company-wide crossovers, so regular programming for some titles may be on hold for a while. But to its credit, DC seems less beholden to continuity concerns. Don’t worry about any inconsistencies vis-à-vis Green Arrow, Suicide Squad or Harley Quinn. It’s only comic books.

Rating: 5/10
