NIGHTWING faces off against PARAGON, the leader of an anti-GOTHAM CITY group!
The arc continues, and the battle is extended. This isn’t the end of Mr. Grayson’s war against the Republic of Tomorrow, and it’s a smart decision that creates suspense for the reader. You find yourself wondering when the group will strike next, as our detective finds more reasons to investigate them further.
Kyle Higgins does a fantastic job with this script. After having the hero suffer the wounds of battle (in usual fashion for Dick) he escapes just in the nick of time. Following that he moves into researching what Detective Nie has on him and later our hero’s plan for a new revitalized Amusement Mile doesn’t go so well. In the end, the puzzle pieces in the story come together in an interesting way, that honestly still leaves me guessing about what’s coming next.
Andres Guinaldo fills in for Eddy Barrows, and he does a very nice job staying true to the series design of the character while also taking his own spin on it. He should be the permanent back-up artist because he understands the Eddy Barrows mindset well enough that when he sits down and creates the world of Gotham City he nails it. A nice two-page spread comes to mind that perfectly illustrates his skills, specifically with action sequences.
As this next arc comes together, Nightwing continues to keep me on my toes as I tend to never know what will come next.
