Hey, I don't know if you heard, but Dick Grayson is going back to Nightwing, and it totally happens in this issue.
The Opinion:My biggest concern with Dick returning to Nightwing was heavily informed by New 52 practices... Just make the change and fuck everything that came before it. But, Rebirth has proven to a cynic like me that DC is really willing to do things right on both ends by going back to the familiar but not at the cost of what they got right to begin with. Keeping Tim Seeley in charge of Dick Grayson was a great first step, and allowing him to continue on with much of the ideas and supporting cast he helped develop in Grayson pretty much settled any fear I had of what I liked being thrown out. This issue basically serves as the real final issue of Grayson, it returns Dick back to his old identity, but makes it clear that he's taking some stuff with him. We may not immediately see the Nightwing, Huntress and Midnighter team-up that I so desperately want now, but it's clearly on the table. I also loved that the Court of Owls plot was subverted just a bit. I would have bet the play on that was Dick would be keeping a secret and "working" for the Court while trying to save his family, but him going into the mission on his own terms prevents this from being "Grayson, but with the Court of Owls." Also, how many times has Lincoln March been disregarded by the Court now? Three?
For some reason Yanick Paqutte and Nathan Fairbairn illustrated this issue, I'm not entirely sure why, as I feel like those two got better things to do (like Wonder Woman Earth One vol. 2) but I'm not going to complain about their first issue outside of Scott Snyder or Grant Morrison in forever. Book looked great, kinda sad it's the only one we get form this team, but oh well.
