Nightwing #61 – Dan Jurgens, Author; Ronan Cliquet, Artist; Nick Filardi, Colorist
Ray – 6/10
Ray: Dan Jurgens is basically attempting his finest on this title, however there simply isn’t all that a lot to work with in a guide that not options its important character in any recognizable approach and tries to get us invested in a bunch of Scott Lobdell’s OCs.
To Jurgens’ credit score, he’s added some attention-grabbing shades to Sapienza, Hutch, and the Edwards siblings as they attempt to fill in for Nightwing, however the total plot is just too primary to provide this sequence the impression of doing something however maintaining time for the following massive growth. “Ric” Grayson is now working with the Nightwings in they usually’ve spent the final three points coping with the plot of a large fireplace monster rampaging by Bludhaven. It was clear it was tied to the story of Hutch’s previous associate, who was shot on a ride-along and has been comatose ever since. At first, the sequence made us assume it is likely to be his vengeful daughter pulling the monster’s strings, however final subject’s cliffhanger made the reality clear.
The issue is, we by no means truly received to know this previous cop, and his daughter was a slightly one-note character. So Nightwing #61 is usually simply Ric and the assorted Nightwings throwing themselves at a monster and failing to cease it. Regardless of this, Jurgens truly sticks the touchdown very nicely. The final third of the problem is inconspicuous, a narrative about saying goodbye to somebody who’s been gone for a very long time in some ways.
The Edwards siblings don’t do a lot for me – Colleen is a reckless cowboy cop who appears to love police brutality, and her brother’s one character trait is “will get beat up”. Sap and Hutch, although, have some promise. They remind me a little bit of basic buddy-cop groups from the 80s. The continued drawback, although, is that Ric stays a shadow of the good character he was once. If DC was decided to take Nightwing off the desk, they could have been higher off going with the nice ol’ coma.
