On the other hand, there is Alphonse Sapienza, a Bludhaven detective currently masquerading as Nightwing. He’s completely new to the super-hero game, bringing with him a cop’s mentality of evidence, and due process. He very much wants to be a super-hero, but he may lack the proper mindset.
MEANWHILE… a new player has entered the arena, as the Scarecrow has set his sights on Bludhaven. Has he made the Robin/Nightwing/Dick Grayson connection? Well, maybe, in a way, but as far as firmly connecting those dots, not yet. But there is a connection of sort there, which no doubt will continue to bring the former super-hero and the current super-villain together again.
As with last issue, we have two artists on deck – Garry Brown and Will Conrad. Their work compliments one another more easily than last issue’s Travis Moore/Patch Zircher pairing, I think. I didn’t notice the transition as much as I did last issue. Perhaps it’s time for Nightwing to go back to a monthly, allowing for a more consistent art team (either individual artist or penciler/inker combo) to take the reins. Just a thought.
