Nightwing DC comics (New 52) Volume 1 (1/2)

Everyone knows Batman. Now some people might not know who Nightwing is. So with the DC revamp of all the series, it makes it easier for new fans to start following a superhero they like. I was always interested in how little Dick Grayson (former Robin) was doing. So when they released his Nightwing series, I had to get my hands on it along with the Batman: Court of Owls and Iron Man: Invincible (To be updated soon).

Aw sweet Jesus, the art is fantastic. The coloring makes his armor so smooth and slick. I love the metal coloring. Just beautiful. It starts off with Nightwing battling random petty villains as he returns to  back to Haly Circus (he and his parents worked there as acrobats before he became Bruce Wayne (Batman)'s ward.)

The story starts with Dick Grayson now as Nightwing encounters a villain (Saiko) who wishes to assassin Dick Grayson (without knowing Nightwing is Dick)
He wants to kill Dick is because "Dick Grayson isn't innocent. Dick Grayson is the fierce killer in all Gotham and he doesn't even know it."
Suspense. Dick and the readers were like "Huh?" Lololol. 

I love the artwork and the coloring. It's so pretty. Even the blood looks nice. I glance at the other issues of Nightwing (after volume 1) and apparently, Nightwing seems to get stabbed a lot. Meaning this exact scene with his killer crouching on top of him is a common occurrence. 

Men in tight suits fighting in a dark alley... on the floor. Sounds legit.
TROLL FACE. Srry Nightwing and Saiko, I really had to ruin your epic moment. 

Nightwing used"HADUKEN". It's very effectively. Saiko fainted.

Nightwing rescued Mr. Haly (his former boss from the Haly Circus) after Saiko attacked him to find something... that might relate to Dick Grayson. The truth is actually pretty amazing. You will see a parallel connection with Batman Court of Owls (part 2). I don't want to spoil it just yet. I will reveal the  spoiler in my next update. 

Like everyone, the first thing I saw was a big transvestite or an hermaphroditic person. Anyway. I suppose that is an interesting way to capture your attention. 

So Mr. Haly is dead and everyone from the Haly Circus is mourning. Dick Grayson will inherit the circus, much to Haly's son's disappointment. Note: That will play a key factor later on in the story.

Nightwing remembers of his past. He was confronting his old friend Zane who is currently working for the wrong crowd. Zane then mindblasted him.

Nightwing remembers his acrobatic parents. Man... the dad is pretty fit. The mom can easily pass for Natasha Romanov/ Black Widow. Heeeeyyy sexy laiiiidaaaayyyy. Oop oop.

Dick getting harassed by his nightmares/flashbacks. 

Nightwing telling Zane to find a better job after defeating him with bat sonic wave. They are like Pokemon... seriously. Ok enough jokes. I love the muscles drawn in here. Very well articulated. The clothes stretched around the limbs... just ingenious artwork. As a woman staring at these pages... I have nothing to complain. XD

Wicked. Too wicked. I love these 2 pages!
So a mysterious (it's revealed in the comic who it is right away) man hired Saiko to terminate Dick Grayson. While the man and Saiko have different reasons, they both want Dick dead. What could Dick possibly had done to enrage these 2 individuals? Remember. they want to kill Dick not Robin/Nightwing. Stay tune, all will be revealed in next week's update.
