I’m a bit confused but the Judge, because Nightwing alludes to previous encounters – as Robin, as Grayson the spy, and now as Nightwing. To me, he’s a new nemesis, but I only recently returned to the character after a multi-decade absence, so it could on me. As foes go, he seems formidable, given his mentalist abilities, but I’m curious to see how he handles a punch in the face from an experienced martial artist.
Meanwhile, there is a sub-plot involving the half-human/half-orca known as Guppy. Betrayal and desperation may result in him turning to a life of crime, but that’s complete speculation on my part. It’s a slow pot that will come to a boil in the months to come (I guess).
I’m enjoying Bernard Chang’s artwork. It’s a refreshing change from that of Javier Fernandez. Nothing against Fernandez, I just appreciate Chang’s work more. I think he was well-suited for his recent stint on Batman Beyond, so Nightwing should be too great a challenge for him to manage.
