Nightwing #07 - now with Bruce


Though he's not in the page I have scanned.


When the preview was posted, many commented on how tired they were with villains blaming the wrong people for their ills.

Turns out, those posters weren't alone....



Later on, We see the same conversation (more or less) that Dick and Bruce have in Batman, though as one might expect, Bruce has less to say, and Dick a little more (It IS his comic after all)

The punch scene is also there, though it's even less clear that Bruce is punching him on order to facilitate a tooth extraction.

Also, as the story arc ends (with some annoying loose ends, especially the final scene with Raya) we have Dick pondering (rather tritely IMHO); "We're not defined by our tragedies or turning points. We're defined by the choices we make in the face of them"

Aside from this story basically failing to establish Dick's role in the DCnU, in light of the many changes which have been made to his past by the reboot (No Titans for him to have led... A MUCH shorter heroic career... Not owning the Haly Circus already, etc), the theme of this arc has seemed to be that "Dick has always run away from his past towards new things" when the point always was that he doesn't RUN from his past, he's MOVED ON from his past, that's a very different thing;

Bruce is defined by that one tragedy in his life. Dick isn't, mostly BECAUSE of Bruce's involvement in his life. It shaped him, guided him, but it didn't define him.

Still, it's been a very pretty arc (even if I do miss the blue)

Yeah, it's getting ridiculously way too overused across all their books...
