Comic Book Review: Nightwing #4 - DC Comics (2016)

"Better Than Batman" Part 4

Written by Tim Seeley
Art by Javier Fernandez
Colors by Chris Sotomayor

Nightwing continues his personal mission to take down the Parliament of Owls.  Nightwing and Raptor obtain a copy of the Book of Wisdom and now are on their way to get the coins to decipher the book.  Nightwing has been playing the "long game" with Raptor and is having a tough time with the morality of his undercover choices.

I have absolutely been enjoying this series.  Tim Seeley is crafting a Nightwing story that truly tests the hero's moral limits.  There are people suffering at the hands of the Owls and Nightwing has constantly struggled with saving a few or waiting to save many. Nightwing is also struggling as he has befriended a man called Raptor, an admitted outlaw but he seems to be a good person(or is he?).

I also enjoy Nightwing's interactions with those in the Batman world.  Whether it be Bruce Wayne or Damian Wayne, Nightwing proves to be an individual and makes him a compelling character in the comic book universe.

Javier Fernandez is a remarkable artist and is doing great work on this title.  Nightwing is an acrobat and the poses are fantastic.  If I had a complaint about the look of this book, it's very minor.  I don't like the bird on the costume.  I prefer the larger bird personally.

I highly recommend picking up this series.  If you're having difficulty finding the first couple issues, don't worry.  It looks like issue #5 will start a new story line and tie in with Batman #7.

Chris Sotomayor's colors look wonderful as well.  The blood stains on Turkeyhead(not really his name...I don't think) show his incredible talent.

What are your thoughts on Nightwing?  Are you enjoying the DC Rebirth as much as I am?  What other comic books would you like Maskerpiece Theatre to review?
