The Rundown: The Flash lends his assistance when Nightwing faces a deadly attack.
In the opener, Blockbuster relays his next move against Dick Grayson to his crew. Later, Dick receives a text message that causes him alarm. He then takes drastic action to evacuate his current location as a violent attack occurs. As Nightwing tries to minimize the damage, he is soon assisted by the Flash. Afterwards, the Flash brings Nightwing to Keystone City and the two old friends discuss the previous event and its catalyst. Later, the heroes travel to Gotham to rescue someone important.
The Story: Taylor creates an interesting narrative that explores Dick’s friendship with Wally. I feel that Dick’s biggest strength is in his personal relationships. His care for others is what defines his heroism and informs his decision making. This episode was not just about teaming up with another hero. Wally also provided Dick with a safe environment to reset and contemplate his next move as well as a different perspective regarding his situation. This era of Nightwing has really shown a well-rounded version of Dick Grayson, and I look forward to seeing how this character grows and develops.
The Art: This issue features some brilliantly done action scenes. I especially liked the way the Flash was presented. I really connected with his movements and emotions. I found this issue to be fully transportive and exciting.
