Nightwing 2021 Annual, Nicola Scott, Annette KwokTITLE: Nightwing 2021 Annual

This one has a really nice opening sequence. It’s got a great cinematic, action movie quality to it.

Part of this issue is a flashback story that shows us when Dick met Jason Todd for the first time. It’s been done at least a couple times before. I can’t say this is my favorite take, but it’s perfectly serviceable.

One thing about the flashback story I didn’t like was how quickly Dick and Jason got chummy. It’s to the point where Dick calls Jason his brother by the end of the story. That’s a little on the nose, isn’t it?

TITLE: Batman: Urban Legends #6
AUTHORS: Meghan Fitzmartin, Various
ARTISTS: Belen Ortega, Alejandro Sanchez, Pat Brosseau. Various. Cover by Nicola Scott & Annette Kwok.
RELEASED: August 10, 2021

This is my first look at this anthology series, more specifically the Tim Drake story by Meghan Fitzmartin and Belen Ortega in which it’s revealed Tim Drake is bisexual. Naturally, some people are up in arms about this. Me? I’ll go on record as saying I don’t mind. It’s just the next development, the next chapter in the character’s story. Who knows? Maybe we’ll start to see a little more of him now.

Also, lost amidst the headlines is a fairly interesting development with Jason Todd. It’s definitely worth a look.
