Nightwing # 22

Writer: Tim Seeley
Pencils: Miguel Medonca
Inks: Vicente Cifuentes
Colors: Chris Sotomayor



All has been quite in Bludhaven, but as we know, there’s a calm before the storm. Whatever Nightwing thinks he knows, might have to be thrown out the door.


***NON-SPOILERS and SUMMARY AT THE BOTTOM***



Dick Greyson


Dick has found a home, a girl, and is finally somewhat settling down into a normal life. But can the boy wonder ever truly be normal? With encouragement from his new beloved, Dick attempts finding a non superhero gig for himself. But the search doesn’t last long for trouble is brewing and more than one villain has emerged.



Blockbuster


As King Shark gets his grimy paws on the underbelly of Bludhaven, another big bad comes to light. No need to worry, Nightwing has taken down Blockbuster before, but wait, this is different. No it’s not Blockbuster, but his brother Roland. And he’s asking for Nightwing’s help?



The King 


I thought this was great. It flowed so well that I could imagine the episode playing out seamlessly. We get a nice quick, but important exposition on Roland and King Shark. Enough to know their goals and where they come from. Enough to make me care about this story. Seeley did an excellent job with bringing this Superhero to the street level.



Sum it Up!


The struggle between being a hero, and just being a person is something that every masked hero goes through. But now Dick has a girl that is making the whole normal life even more appealing, but will being the Nightwing get in the way? Seeley did an excellent job in laying out the events in this issue. In only 21 pages he gives the reader all the information needed to make them care about what’s going on. I have a feeling this arc is going to be a page turner.
