SPOILERS: Nightwing #11

Nightwing unwilling becomes the guy who shows up with a six pack at the AA meeting.

The Spoilers:

So, as you might have figured out, Dick lands himself in smack dab in the middle of the Z-lister villain rehab program, all of whom have had past dealings with Nightwing (or Robin). He's not very welcome, and Dick's new boss, Defacer quickly gets him to leave. On his way out, Dick is stopped by Jimmy Nice, guy from last issue, and basically asks for his help, as there's something going on with the "Run-offs," they've lost members and seem to be targets to be framed for crimes they didn't commit.

Despite really wanting to not get involved, Dick digs into the seedy areas of Bludhaven to find out what Gorilla Grimm's deal was, eventually coming to the conclusion that he had indeed been framed. When Dick finds Shawn to tell her he aims to help whether the Run-Offs want him to or not, she seemingly is okay with and of course flirting happens because it's Nightwing and he can't keep it in his pants, but oh no, the cops come because Shawn is a suspect in a murder now. Cops don't give a damn about Nightwing, telling him it's a job for real protectors and not an ad campaign, pointing towards the new billboard with his face on it.

As the news reports of Nightwing circulate, it seems like one of the relapsed Run Off's, Orca, is going to be set out into Bludhaven by her new gang, as a warning. 

The Opinion:

While reading this issue I started to think what it would be like if you had Nightwing attending meetings with former Z list villains was a regular thing this book did. Think that'd be kind of unique. It'd be an interesting way to present some information without being direct exposition in narration boxes or something. Anyways, liking this story so far. Definitely a big change of pace from the last couple of arcs, which works well... keeps it varied. Enjoyed the coloring much more this issue given it didn't have a handful of pages that just looked hollow with all sorts of white taking up a majority of the real-estate.
