This issue really encapsulates what I’ll call the “Anti-Batman” spirit Taylor, Redondo, and the gang have created with their run on Nightwing. Meaning Dick lives his live with hope, draws people together instead of shutting them out, etc. There’s even a line in this issue about Dick having to “fight a lot of Bruce’s more toxic programming.”

That quote comes from a pretty great scene between Dick and Barbara. This Taylor/Redondo run has done more for them as a couple than any other story in more than a decade.

Dick calls in some favors in this issue. As such, Redondo and Lucas get to (albeit briefly) show us a whole bunch of DC heroes together. That’s pretty damn cool.

Batwoman also has a decent-sized role in this issue, which is fun.

The plot thickens as it relates to Dick and Blockbuster…

Have we reached the point yet where we can formally acknowledge that Taylor, Redondo, and this team are turning in one of the all-time great Nightwing runs? I say we have.
