Nightwing #15 just might be my favorite issue to come out of DC Rebirth thus far....Depending on what happens in the next issue, I'll know if this will end up being one of my favorites of all time
My thoughts exactly. In general, this is the best issue of the series so far and i'm hard pressed to think of another issue I enjoyed as much in DC Rebirth. Then again, Nightwing is probably my favorite DC Rebirth series to begin with. I feel like we sometimes underestimate the importance that a character's relationships, romantic and platonic, really have in the story. This issue displays just how important they are, with Dick Grayson just spending time talking to all of the people in his life, clearly establishing the relationship he has with each, while also countering it with Shawn and her own relationships. If there's one complaint I have it's that Damian didn't get a chance to show up, but I really can't hold that against the issue when you look at the character's that did show up:
Bruce Wayne- Dick's father
Jason Todd- Dick's younger brother (Let me say, i've been against Jason being too close with other members of the Bat Family, but they've done some solid work on integrating him into the family and this issue displays that)
Barbara Gordon- Close friend/partner/(ex)love interest
Starfire- Amicable ex-girlfriend
Wally West- Dick's best friend (Really am glad that this relationship has been established again so quickly)
The conversation's with each were good and interesting, as was the view of the new relationship. This'll be blown straight to hell though if Shawn ends up dying within the end of the next arc, because that's what tends to happen whenever a Bat-person gets into a relationship with someone that's not a part of that world.
On another note, read Flash Rebirth's issues and enjoyed it. Going to go ahead and check out the New 52 series now.
