The Story: I loved this continuation of the team-up between Nightwing and the Flash. Not only was there a combination of heartwarming brotherhood and intense action, the reader is also treated to a glimpse into Dick Grayson’s critical thinking ability. I also appreciate how this run leans heavily into Nightwing’s family relationships and friendships in a way that is both natural and relatable. I thought this was a well-crafted chapter and I am excited to find out what is next in store for this member of the Bat Family.
The Art: This is an action heavy issue that is filled with colorful, detailed panels that are both visually appealing and engaging. I also found that the attention to character detail and scenery creates an immersive environment that is matches the tone of the story.
