Graphic Novel Review: Nightwing Vol 1: Better Than Batman (Rebirth)

Nightwing Vol. 1: Better Than Batman (Rebirth)

Synopsis:
He was the first Robin—and a replacement Batman. He was a superspy—and a dead man. Now, after going underground and around the world in a battle to reclaim the secret identity that was stolen from him, Dick Grayson is going back to Gotham as his own man, his own hero: Nightwing!

But stepping back into his old life isn’t as easy as putting on his familiar black and blue costume. Not when his former boss, Batman, insists he should work solo. Not when he’s trying to rekindle a romance with Barbara Gordon, a.k.a. Batgirl, who’s got a life and crime-fighting career of her own. When a mysterious masked man called Raptor swoops in, claiming to be an ally but looking every bit the enemy, Nightwing must join forces with Raptor to take down Parliament of Owls, the all-powerful criminal conspiracy that’s left its nest in Gotham City and is spreading its wings around the world.

To pull it all off, Nightwing must be more than equal to his mentor.
He’s got to be better.

Review:
Dick Grayson is back to being my favorite of his alter-egos: Nightwing. There always seems to be just the right amount of drama in his life that rounds out the action and adventure. This new Rebirth series kicks off with a roller coaster ride of events. And the characters are fun and vivid. This story arc involves a sketchy Raptor who wants to team up with Nightwing to take down an evil empire. I’ll definitely continue reading this exciting line.
