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

This was a really fun story. A nice fast paced murder mystery set-up detective story involving Nightwing and The Huntress in a team-up capacity. The first two chapters became kind of annoying because of the way Devin Greyson portrayed The Huntress as a cold and jealous amateur who is more interested in taking potshots at Nightwing and Batman's working relationship than being the confident no nonsense badass that we all know she is. Eventually she stops acting like a child and starts kicking ass. ...more

This review can also be found on my blog.

I’ve been on a Huntress kick lately. And even more lately, on a Nightwing kick. I then found this comic and thought, “Well, what could be better???” XD

A prostitute is found dead in a hotel room in mobster Frankie Black’s name, and Huntress is on the case. Problem is, Nightwing was at the warehouse Black was at at the time of the murder – watching him run a gun deal. Someone’s framed him, and the heroes need to figure out how to work together to figure out

I read this more for the Huntress angle than the Nightwing one. This is my third graphic novel with Huntress listed in the title credits, and my eighth with Huntress as a lead character (the other four being Worlds' Finest volumes 1-5). Then there are two additional graphic novels wherein Huntress cameos. Nightwing, on the other hand, has only been in four prior graphic novels I've read as a lead character (plus two more wherein he cameoed).

Nightwing, though, has always been Dick Grayson in thes

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

Two of my favorite characters get their own four issue story. I don't have my originals but it was such a cool story that i will have to find it again somewhere.

The more I read about Nightwing the more I dislike him. Dick is well, a dick to be honest.

I enjoyed this series! It was an interesting look at the dynamics of the Batfamily, and Devin Grayson's small-scale character interactions are pretty great. The story wasn't as crisply plotted as it could have been, but I did like the slow way that the crime unfolded.

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.
