Until DC wises up and moves Dick somewhere else. Bludhaven isn't a good enough concept to last.
>>
>>97311068
Get this implied cuckery out of my Nightwing.
>>97311079
At least Dick/Shawn is over.
>>
>>97311042
What the fuck how did Raptor get hit that he falls like that?
>>
>>97310949
>>97311059
wtf is with the lettering in this issue?
>>
>>97311059
kek that missing umlaut
>>
>>97310859
I didn't hate Seeley's run here, but I do think it kind of faded. The fact that I HATE Fernandez's art doesn't help at all. Why did To not come for another arc! That would seriously have lifted the book!
>>
>>97311115
While I don't mean Dick getting his own cast of supporting characters centered around Nightwing instead of Batman, this gang of Shawn and notMoon Girl and whoever is kinda lame
>>
>>97311068
so raptor had sex with dicks mom?
>>
Thanks for the storytime OP.

>>97310871
I really like this cover
>>
>>97310907
Raptor gets a credit for who created him???
>>
>>97310859
>>97310855
Anyone else dropping this book after this issue? Who actually wants to read Dogfucker on Nightwing?
>>
>>97313054
Dogfucker is getting good artists so I'll at least check it out
>>
>>97311079
No Shawn you were best girl after Helena. Dogfucker better not want to make dickbabs a thing again unless there's a wheel chair involved.

So wait Dick has his own team now? Oh they dead next run.
>>
>>97313054
People who read his Green Lanterns? Really if you look at his books you can see that he was improving, so I believe that GLs wasn't a one off good book from him
>>
>>97310886
Kinda sad that Seeley had to waste a page on his last issue and conclusion of the entire run on a recap page
>>
>>97311025
Cool fucking font pack, DC
>>
>>97311101
I can forgive the occasional oversight, but jesus christ this issue is a clusterfuck of mistakes
>>
>>97310859
Wasn't a bad run, but I don't mind someone different. Book was on the level of first three Grayson volumes.
>>
>>97311101
I thought Svoboda said that she wouldn't contact Nightwing anymore because seeing him made she wants to cheat on her husband.

What changed?
>>
>>97311042
kek
>>
>>97315614

Maybe she got the pussy under control and realized working with the superhero would actually benefit the city.
>>
>>97311965
>The fact that I HATE Fernandez's art doesn't help at all.
Sotomayor's coloring bails him out massively since #1. Really good job, neon city being colourful in the right way, bright colors on suits popping when they need to, everything being toned down in right moments. Fernandez issues would look like trash with someone less competent.
>>
>>97310973
>I arrive in a cloud of doves to destroy monuments to all gods but me.
So she takes a massive shit on statues?
>>
>>97315952
Agreed. The look of the city, specifically the colors, has been the best part of this run. It makes it stand out from Gotham and NYC that we see so much of in comics.
>>
>>97316837
Making it Vegas was the best idea Seeley had. Still not that interesting but at least it's a start.
>>
>>97310855

>>
>>97317334
It's Atlantic City, which it always technically has been, but they've done an awful job of making it feel any different except there's more scenes near the ocean in Dixon's run.
>>
>>97317404
How's the art in Dixon's run? I know McDaniel drew a lot for it, and I really dislike his style.
>>
>>97317514
Like you said McDaniel's art is very love it or hate it. He's responsible for some aspects of Dick that have become signature: drawing Nightwing's acrobatics with multiple figures to represent motion, and drawing him as super flexible and with a quality ass. But the art can be really hard to follow sometimes.

Their take on Bludhaven was "Gotham but worse" and it just looks like a generic shitty city like Detroit.
>>
>>97317514
Terrible for the most part.

Like you said McDaniel drew most of it and a lot of the earlier issues have so much disgusting yellow like >>97317658 and I don't understand why. Then Land drew some and while he didn't blatantly trace tons of porn and his own stuff like he does now, his art was never all that good and he did trace some things (but it wasn't as obvious).

>Bring back a team of d-lister villains who are trying to get their shit together, including fucking Orca who end up saving the city together and getting redeemed

>Killed off by the next writer to tie up loose ends because lol who gives a fuck about d-listers

I'd be mad.
>>
>>97318280
>>Bring back a team of d-lister villains who are trying to get their shit together, including fucking Orca who end up saving the city together and getting redeemed
All in all, this is a pretty good idea.
>>
>>97318341
well even though they didn't get a LOAD of exposure here, the run offs are one of the things I liked about this run.
>>
>>97311068
waat? Dick is his son?
>>
>>97318408
I just got the impression that he hated himself for never beng there for dick atfter his parents bit it. He was a coward.
>>
>>97312115
No, he’s Snape.
>>
>>97318493
Not really. It seems like Raptor and Dick's mom were more involved that originally implied.
>>
That was okay. I liked Seeley's run fine, but I also never felt the urge to rush out and buy the trades or anything. I'll stick around and see what Humphries does, but I may not keep it up for as long.

I've lamented in previous Nightwing threads, but one of the problems I have is that I really like Dick as a character, but I'm never sure what kind of status quo I think works well for him. I don't find Bludhaven a particularly compelling setting, and in a lot of ways I do like seeing him compared/contrasted with Batman (while also acknowledging that the idea has been done and there's not much to gain from constantly retreading it). So I'll be curious to see what Humphries does.
>>
>>97311101
>Shirtless Nightwing
thank u Seeley
>>
>>97311101
Reflections of WHAT SEELEY
>>
>>97311013
Ouch, the good old Hank Pym Special.
>>
>>97321296
Raptor goes to the pymtron school of Throwing Hands
>>
>yfw the run-offs are all killed off by the serial killer in the next arc immediately so Humphries can get a clean slate on his cast
>>
>>97311068
So Dick's mom named her son after Raptor, another man she had or was having sexual relations with? Am I reading this correctly?
>>
>>97311068
Is Raptor dead?
>>
>>97318280
Sounds like how old-school Hellblazer would handle creative team changes
>>
>>97313340
lol
>>
>>97310855
This is Seeley's last issue isn't it?
>>
>>97326138
yup
>>
>>97320994
that's on the letterer and editors
>>
>>97313267
Nah he doesn't like ever talking about Dick's ships, I bet he won't ever show any romance in his run and will only tease stuff during guest appearances and such
>>
>>97322511
they were still kids/teens at the time, judging by the art, so I think it's more like if Dick named his daughter Babs or Kory because she was important to him.
>>
>>97316311
it's in her name, that's why Seeley thought she was interesting and probably why he decided to ship her with Raptor, they're both anarchists (in their own ways)
>>
bump
>>
>>97313267
>>97311079
This is a shame, I really liked Shawn. Think she's been the best ship for dick since Nu52 started. I hope to god they don't do DickBabs fuckery. Unless they cripple the bitch again.
>>
>>97330847
I kind like before it went to shit, but I also like him with nu52 Helena as well. Weird considering I felt nothing about them before the reboot.
Barbara should stay really far away though. It's time to move on already.
>>
I just hope Shawn and Orca make it
>>
relatively new to comics...who's considered Nightwing's arch-enemy?
>>
>>97333654
No one. But probably Blockbuster for some dumb reason.
>>
>>97333654

Dick's arch-enemy has always been DC editorial

If you want an actual character, it depends on the era of comics you're reading.
40's through 70's he was just Batman's sidekick and DC wasn't doing anything with him.

80's it was probably Brother Blood
90's it was easily Blockbuster
00's it was probably Deathstroke
10's he's been all over the place. No arch-enemies but plenty of best-frenemies.

>>97333791
Thanks, anons
>>
>>97333654
Deathstroke used to be but during the 00s he got too powerful and popular for Dick
Some writers tried keeping the relationship going but it just kinda went ehhhh since it's just like "why doesn't he just kill Dick if he hates him bc of his children". Bludhaven blowing up and two encounters when he was Batman was pretty much the last thing with them from 2006 to basically 2017 with Lazarus Contract.
>>
>>97311115
Finally it's fucking over. What a boring run.
>Humphries
Oh come on.
Will "Nighwing" will ever have a good writer? Or are we struck with mediocrity forever.
>>
>>97336242
Dick is one of those characters who is popular enough to be mediocre and still sell well and why put good writers on him when good writers can be put on Batman?
>>
Hmm, I'm new to comics.
I thought I'd like Nightwing. But yeaa this isn't for me.
>>
>>97336242
Actually yes.
Waid pretty much said his Nightwing pitches were always rejected because DC wanted him, an A list talent at the time, on books that mattered. Nightwing always gonna be stuck as a Batman satillite. Dickbats both times happened because Morrison and Dixon (the Batman writers) wanted him as Batman. And even then with Morrison's time they stuck him on a second rate JL with Kara and Donna because they didn't want to sully Clark and Diana.
Grayson seemed to be the first time editorial actually TRIED with Dick and it was good but we all know how a vocal part of his fanbase felt about it.
