This book series keeps getting better as we become invested in an independent Richard Grayson.
This second graphic novel collection of DC's Nightwing series picks up where "A Knight in Bludhaven" ended. Blockbuster is the new power in Bludhaven, but in a town where the police is as corrupt as anybody else Nightwing has a hard time stopping him.

The bent cop somes calls in the Scarcrow to stop him and sends Dick on a paranoid ride through dreamland. The rest of the collection is action packed crime fighting with some guest appearances.

The Nightwing series really takes time to explore the r...more
Chuck Dixon writes a good comic and there's no two ways about it. I love the idea of Grayson as a cop and I love the dynamic between Nightwing and Barman or Babs. The crimes and investigation are spaced out well and the art changes from vol 1 but is still great.
This collection of the former Robin’s trials and tribulations in his new stomping grounds of Bludhaven was a little too chaotic to really enjoy. It seemed like there were about a two dozen storylines that Chuck Dixon wanted to tell and he crammed it in these ten issues. While some elements were good, others are washed out or completely rushed. Scott McDaniel’s are was the same way. It was so frantic that the action was hard to follow at times. Overall, a disappointment.
Nightwing is starting to find his own feet. Batman pays him a visit and he finally overcomes some of his issues. Bludhaven is still interesting, and Nightwing has to work harder that batman does in Gotham to put criminals away.
This was a fun read. Of particular note was the portrayal of the relationship between Nightwing and Batman. I thought I wouldn’t enjoy the artwork as much as I did.

The Chuck Dixon/Scott McDaniel run on Nightwing is one of the best things to ever happen in the modern age of comics. It's rare to see art & story mesh so perfectly.
Really not a fan of this style of art, but good writing and story arcs.

Charles "Chuck" Dixon is an American comic book writer, perhaps best-known for long runs on Batman titles in the 1990s.

His earliest comics work was writing Evangeline first for Comico Comics in 1984 (then later for First Comics, who published the on-going series), on which he worked with his then-wife, the artist Judith Hunt. His big break came one year later, when editor Larry Hama hired him to w...more
