SPOILERS: Nightwing #25

Things don't go well in Dick's life... I'm sure you could figure them out if you've read the other issues, but hey... he gets a job this time!

The Spoilers:

The long and short of it is that Dick uses Clock King's time-vest to stop time and save all the villains, then goes to confront Blockbuster who has now taken over Tiger Shark's operation by force. Dick can't touch Blockbuster at the moment, so they have a drink while Blockbuster believes he's won. Dick does managed to get in his head a little bit. Meanwhile, Giz, who had been helping Dick with tech, decides to do some digging into the Second Hand.

Dick goes back to talk to Shawn, but surprise surprise, she breaks up with Dick, then Pigeon... Dove? Whatever her name is tells Shawn she should start painting like she did when she was the Defacer... I'm sure that'll end well and Dick won't have to get involved.

So, Dick's life sucks, but hey, he gets a job as a blackjack dealer at Blockbuster's casino, in order to keep an eye on him, so that's clever.

OH NO, GIZ IS DEAD! I think!

The Opinion: 

Based on last issue's interactions, the break up was pretty telegraphed. I thought it went by a little too quickly though, the reasonings were a little brushed over, but ah well... my thoughts on comic romances and them being very hit or miss (mostly miss) are well documented, so I'm not exactly in tears over this.

I do like where Dick ended up with Blockbuster, as their relationship proved to be quite interesting. I think him being a blackjack dealer is a pretty clever play to solve two problems at once. 

Looking forward to Huntress and Spyral getting back into the mix.
