But Raptor’s insanity has driven Nightwing straight into a partnership – tenuous thought it may be – with Roland Desmond, AKA the new Blockbuster. Desmond sees himself as the true protector of Bludhaven, and when Raptor uses Desmond’s own serum to turn his casino patrons and employees into hulking monosyllabic beasts, it becomes clear to Blockbuster he and Nightwing have a common enemy.
But Raptor has a partner of his own: the downright laughable social justice super-villain known as the Pigeon. But she’s upped her game and has joined in Raptor’s plot to poison the city. It all leads to witches brew of heroes, villains and former sidekicks who will now doubt clash in a big way next issue.
Javier Fernandez returns to the drawing board as the sometimes go-to artist for Nightwing. It’s a good match, though somewhat inconsistent as artists rotate in and out of story arcs – shall we say – less than satisfying results. It seems the wiser plan would be to feature the same artist for the duration of the story arc.
