He’s a young man, perpetually stuck in that nebulous transition into adulthood where living on your own and forging your own path is only the start to becoming who you are meant to be. Some readers should be aware that Tom Taylor uses this arc to set up a variety of plot threads and themes that are mostly not paid off by the end.

I haven't been interested in keeping up with DC lately, but this is one title that I'm glad I didn't miss out on. I don’t usually touch on editors in my reviews, but in this volume Jessica Chen’s input and notes were noticeable from the outset, something which I thought was great to see and very helpful for new and old readers alike.

Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo, the creative team behind Suicide Squad: Bad Blood, reunite to produce a surprisingly decent Nightwing book with Volume 1: Leaping into the Light. Guess staring Barbara Gordon,Tim Drake, and Cameos or mention of the whole Bat family and a couple of others. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. When Nightwing enlists Batgirl’s help in investigating the politician bearing the same name as the man who murdered his parents, she unearths details that will shock and fundamentally change the hero. Who is this terrifying new menace named Heartless and will he be able to resist plucking out the biggest heart in all of Bludhaven?

What I’m less endeared to is his narrative spinning plates as Dick works out what he wants to do with his money. It’s a good thing he has such a great supporting cast, and hopefully together they can make real change to the city he claims as his own. comic) Batman and Robin (comic) Batman and Robin Eternal (comic) Batman/Superman (comic) Batman v Superman (General Mills) Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (comic) Batman: Arkham Unhinged Batwing (comic) Catwoman (comic) Detective Comics (comic) Earth 2 (comic) Earth 2: Society (comic) Gotham Academy (comic) Gotham Academy: Second Semester (comic) Gotham by Midnight (comic) Grayson (comic) Harley Quinn (comic) Injustice: Gods Among Us (comic) Injustice: Gods Among Us: Ground Zero (comic) Justice League (comic) Justice League/Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (comic) Justice League of America (Rebirth) Mother Panic (comic) New Suicide Squad (comic) Nightwing (comic) Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life and Death (comic) Red Hood/Arsenal (comic) Red Hood and the Outlaws (comic) Robin: Son of Batman (comic) Teen Titans Go! The color palette isn't as subdued as Matt Fraction's Hawkeye run but Adriano Lucas understands that less is more in most cases.It’s a soft reboot at its core, throwing Dick into a new situation and given a problem he can’t solve via his usual methods. Dick Grayson has had a lot of changes over the last few years, as he was a secret agent at one point, to then being shot in the head and becoming Rick, which is a run I'd like to forget ever happened. It was nice to see Babs Gordon and Tim Drake show up for the ride - Dick and Babs’ never-ending on/off romance is back on, sorta - and Taylor’s light, playful tone fits the series like a glove. But of course with him being a part of the Bat-Family there’s obviously going to be a set of problems and obstacles in his way.

Okay, the essence of Dick Grayson as a person and Nightwing as his vigilante alias has never felt so perfectly captured. I think this approach often creates problems, which is why he has Dick mention his aspirations to do more than just punch people. The man's got his heart in the right place and his sense of humor is pretty great but if he wants to make a point or a political statement, he makes it so the back rows can see it. With the Bat-Team s comms unreliable, Nightwing heads to Gotham to find the source of Anti-Oracle s transmissions.I was going to hold off until maybe this got turned into an omnibus, or something, but with all the rave I just got the urge to jump in. I frankly can’t relate as much to this new version of Dick, even if I still recognize and enjoy seeing him tackle this new phase of life. And then there is the big reveal in the end of how Dick plans to use that money and the team up with Superman was awesome but the big thing is the art and omg its so good, some panels are so creative and this partnership reminds you of Snyder-Capullo days and here too its so well done and you really feel for the characters!

This is why Dick’s new struggle of inheriting vast wealth is an equally intriguing and troublesome angle. Nightwing feels like a happier, more likeable Batman and we'll soon see what he's going to do with his acquired wealth. This first 6 issue arc shows Dick Grayson (Nightwing) being visited by an old friend, Barbara Gordan. Tom Taylor is getting to be synonomous with good quality, and his Nightwing run is yet another shining example of why. In general I don’t read current DC comics, but Taylor does a wonderful job of not making you feel like you’re missing out on anything.

Unfortunately, Taylor resets Nightwing's status quo all the way back to 1996, with Dick Grayson taking a new swing at rehabilitating Gotham's even worse neighboring city, Blüdhaven, by wrenching it from the hands of crime lord Blockbuster. No matter the argument for how a story should be paced, Leaping into the Light is a captivating read for anyone interested in Nightwing as a character or for those who seek more than traditional fisticuffs in their superhero comic books. I haven’t read Nightwing in years - apparently he recently suffered head trauma and thought he was someone else for a spell?
