The idea of Nightwing and Huntress is appealing if only for the sort of "forbidden love" thing they have going on, knowing how Batman is so against Huntress' methods, and Oracle's supposed antagonism/nonchalance towards said relationship. There is certainly some sexual tension happening, but in spite of this there is the lack of trust that hovers over them both.

The Noir-esque whodunnit story, isn't just a throwaway plot device to throw two very pretty and very headstrong characters together in p

I thought this was a bit unevenly written. The bad guys weren't really compelling, and the overall plot left a bit to be desired.


The Nightwing/Huntress scenes were really well done. These are two characters that interact really interestingly.

Recommended if you favor characterization over story, and to fans of Nightwing and/or Huntress.
Art by Bill Sienkiewicz & Greg Land: Simply beautiful. Really top notch stuff. That's what a comic book should look like. I was smitten.

Story by Devin Grayson: The parts about the bad guys didn't interest me all that much, but the rest made up for it. I loved the banter between Nightwing and Huntress and then later on between Nightwing and Oracle. The part with Dick in Helena's apartment was hilarious. And the one dream scene with Batman made me laugh out loud. I loved the balance between th
This was a quick fun read. I liked it for two reasons, mostly. Okay, maybe three. One: it reminded me how much I love Dick. Here, he's a lot less, um, not-Dick than in current batcanon, he's fun and adorable and cute and great at impressions.
Two: Huntress is pretty cool here, and overall I like her interaction with Dick.
Three: My favourite part though was the fact that both Huntress and Oracle were like, "Yes, Huntress reminds you of Batman. She is just like him. And THAT'S why you want to slee
The more I read about Nightwing the more I dislike him. Dick is well, a dick to be honest.
This was a nice quick read. It's a mobster crime story. Nightwing and Huntress have to prove who is the guilty party, but there is also the attraction between them. Very nice art on the series. Overall, if you like comics, you will probably like this.
This was pretty dull. Way too much focus on the bad guys, confusing plot and the characterizations of Nightwing & Huntress were all off. I'd skip it if I were you.

this really is a great series! Devin Grayson was really great at characterization.
Engaging plot, loved the dynamic between Nightwing and Huntress...
A detective story in which Huntress is have some cool one-liners
Probably more of a 3.5, to be honest.
