Well, it has been a crazy couple of weeks in comics! We're in the middle of the Night of the Owls event that is occurring across the Bat-world and The Culling event that is going on between the Teen Titans, Superboy, Legion Lost and Ravagers books. We've been having some trouble getting our books on time as well. There have been pretty severe damages at our store over the past two weeks. We are still missing our copy of Batman from last week and our store had no usable Catwoman books in the boxes for today. They also must not have gotten the memo that the genius Marcus To has been moved to Batwing because they did not order enough books to cover all the new readers. Our is still on order. So, today I have reviews for Batman & Robin, Red Hood & the Outlaws, Birds of Prey, Batgirl and Nightwing. Night of the Owls, here we come!
Nightwing #9- WOW! This issue continues where we left off in Nightwing #8. Dick is fighting his Talon to keep the mayor and his deputy safe. It's a heart wrenching battle that leaves the reader at least as drained as it leaves Dick Grayson. The dialogue is so classic Dick that you find yourself smiling a bit as he lays out his feelings on destiny. What an epic battle for the ages. The action is dynamic and the story is fascinating. Dick Grayson is easily one of my favorite characters in the DC comics universe and this book just reaffirms that. The art is lovely and the details are great. I still don't love the new suit but it's a small complaint. This one earns 5 Flashes for an epic comic that has it all. I will warn those who have issues with blood that there is a fair amount of it in this book. Dick's fight is not easy.
Next week, we'll have Justice League, Blue Beetle, Arkham Unhinged, and Superboy. I can't wait and I hope you'll join me right back here!
