reaches its conclusion, with a shake-up for the status quo in Nightwing’s
world. Last issue left us on a ship rigged to blow in mere seconds (Holy
cliffhangers!). The resolution to this particular predicament is brilliant, one
worthy of Mr. Miracle himself.
there’s still the final showdown between Nightwing and Blockbuster and/or Tiger
Shark, two competing criminals whose only common goal is keeping the former Boy
Wonder off the collective back of Bludhaven’s underworld. Does Nightwing take
sides? Support the lesser evil? Let them destroy one another?
of the above, really. In this story there really aren’t any winners or losers,
not the least of which is Nightwing himself. Were Tim Seely to leave the title
at this point (Heaven forbid), he would have set things up for a whole new
direction with a fresher perspective. Not a bad place to leave matters.
But Nightwing is a good title when the
setting stays in Bludhaven. This issue allowed a controversial ongoing plot
point to be laid to rest, thereby opening the paths to which the story may
follow. It has potential to be a great book. Hopefully this new beginning will
allow it to be.
