adrianopivy's Nightwing #7 - Turning Points review

Avatar image for adrianopivy


Coming into this issue as a big fan of Nightwing, and having put down Batman #7 just a few seconds earlier, I really wanted to like this book. I'd read all the previous issues from the beginning, and was expecting a big pay-off to a great premise, and a story that had a lot of potential. I'm very glad to say that I was not disappointed. At all.

This issue completely did it. I don't know what 'it' is, but after putting the issue down, I felt good. I felt satisfied. The character and plot work was amazing, and after reading Batman I was wondering how the two books would link. The end result was perfect. The action scene with Saiko was spectacular, and watching artists do a stunning job on the acrobatic character of Dick Grayson provides for great artwork, and great action scenes. The resolution to the introductory arc was the perfect mix of tying up loose ends and providing food for the future. Whats more important to me, however, was the treatment, and witnessing how development of this 'new' character. After reading many of the older Nightwing arcs, I'm extremely happy with the direction New 52 has taken Nightwing, and it serves as a primary example of a successful reboot, and as a testament to the power of good writing. I'm a fanboy, but I still can't mention the writing without complimenting the artists.

In summary, I'm more keen than ever to get my monthly issue of Nightwing, and I'm more excited than ever with the future and direction thats it's shaping. If this series can continue to deliver stories of this quality, albeit slightly more consistent, then Nightwing will no doubt be one of the best superhero comic being published by DC at the moment.

    Sigh. Look, it's better than the Green Lantern banner because I get the point of this one. It's not hyping a movie that didn't need extra hype, and its for a good cause. But it doesn't change the fact that the "We Can Be Heroes" banner is a huge detriment to the covers its on. Although this cover's already kind of odd. I mean, I should like the idea, but everything looks sort of.... chalky. And Nightwing's face is a little odd, and something's off about the balance.Well DAMN. Color me IMPRESSED....

    THE GOOD: I really like the art in this issue. The paneling is all over the place and I really think it seems like a Nightwing book. I really think that first page in the issue was done very nicely by the artist and I hope that this artist sticks around for a while longer. The story is fantastic. This burns through the old story that connects to the Court of Owls and I think that the conversion was done very nicely. I really like the new twist on Haley's Circus and the characters you liked at th...
