The Rundown: Nightwing teams up with the Batgirls for a rescue attempt involving Seer.

Dick Grayson and Barbara Gordon attend an event at the Iceberg Lounge. At a critical moment, the two use the opportunity to break away from the crowd and search for Seer. After donning their costumes and searching the lower levels of the building, Nightwing and Oracle encounter members of The Saints as they attempt to rescue Seer.

Meanwhile, Batgirls Stephanie and Cassie lookout duty on the roof is interrupted by Tarsus. This altercation leads to an action-packed confrontation that unexpectedly involves a group of unrelated villains. Afterwards, the two meet up with their friends, and as the group resolves their encounter, Seer does something surprising. Later on, Dick and Barbara meet up for some quality time.

The Story: This chapter marks the end of a fast-paced story arc involving the Seer. I really enjoyed this story. Not only do fans get to see their favorite Bat Couple on a “date night,” there is a cameo from a famed Gotham villain that is sure to delight. As always, the teamwork and camaraderie of the heroes is highlighted, as well as their compassion. I look forward to finding out what’s next for the team.

The Art: This issue is filled with lots of action and fight scenes. The bold color scheme and attention to detail were tonally perfect for the storyline and made the visuals that much more connective. I was transported by the art with the turn of each page.
