Some thoughts about Nightwing #25
Blockbuster believes himself to be the savior the city needs but Dick has other thoughts in mind. Unfortunately, his relationship won't be as easy to save.
This little storyarc concludes and is quite satisfying.
Tim Seeley offers a new chapter where he plays with classic Nightwing themes while giving them an interesting twist. The fight between Dick and the multiple villains is quite enjoyable, Seeley has even managed to give some useless characters like Percy's Clock King a bit of depth (which still doesn't make him an ideal incarnation though) and creates a great conflict between Blockbuster and Nightwing that makes a lot of sense.
Not only that but the writer also implements the classic superhero mentality the protagonist has in his relationship and shows how real life is not as easy to solve. Mind you, is not something particularly new but is still well-executed.
Minkyu Jung is in charge of the pencils and the style is really solid with attractive character models and strong action scenes.
Good stuff, hope the next arc is equally as entertaining.
