Some thoughts about Nightwing #24
Dick has been trapped by Tiger Shark and Blockbuster and is being forced to survive some of the deadliest criminals in the world.
Well, this worked quite effectively once again.
Tim Seeley brings a new chapter where he handles a single and simple premise, Nightwing fighting a group of supervillains but as usual, the execution is what makes this shine. For one, Seeley offers lines to the villains that perfectly express who they are and are faithful to their original incarnations. It was cool to see Dick beating up Ben Percy's blunt versions of Count Vertigo and Clock King from Green Arrow while other characters like China White finally get their usual line of work referenced.
The theme of Bludhaven continues to be developed and Blockbuster brings some hard truths at the end which culminates in a pretty interesting twist.
Miguel Mendonca handles the art and while is solid at times, the storytelling is not so good since some transitions are not that clear.
Other than that, pretty satisfying read.
