Of course Mikel Janin's art is so perfect throughout; I can't stress how much humour and emotion he injects into a panel with backgrounds and facial expressions, and clever panel layouts that make the action so dynamic. Easily the best double-page in the whole TPB is when Dick is stealing jewels from a duchess; how can Janin make the scene so sexy when there are armed guards everywhere, Dick's committing theft in public, and everyone has their clothes on? Love this series, shame that there has to be some tie-in with Batman: End Game. You don't need to know what is happening in Batman to follow this book though, and Grayson is still a title which luckily doesn't have much bleed in from other Batverse comics.
Batman continuity is currently getting a bit wobbly, as Damian was missing from “Batman - Endgame”, but is retrieved by Batman in “Robin Rises” which must have taken place before the former. Also, this volume opens with Dick trying to contact Mr. Malone, yet we know that he was present at the last encounter with the Joker above ground, before the Joker went after Bruce for their final showdown; though I suppose Dick could have left before finding out the result of that. And while we are talking about continuity, we have been told that Nightwing will be returning in the “Rebirth” reboot of the DC titles - and in Batman & Robin Eternal TP Volume 2 we discover that Spyral has the means to ‘fix’ the problem of Dick Grayson’s apparent death at the hands of the Injustice League, so after reading this volume, I suggest you scuttle off and read the Robin Eternal volumes, and meet back here for Grayson volume 4, and we can see how it will be done. [And having just written that, I went to check on Amazon, and discovered that a volume 5 has just been listed, which leads in to the Rebirth event!]
There are two main stories in this volume, the first of which sees Dick being accused of killing fellow-agents from other organisations, leading to a conflict with Agent 1 during an operation to steal a sample of Kryptonite and turn it over to the “proper authorities”. Unfortunately, the proper authority in this case is [spoiler], currently a member of the Justice League, and someone Dick has spent his life (clue!) keeping Kryptonite away from. This also reveals more double-agents and dead people who were only pretending to be dead, and even more convoluted Spyral-related schemes, which leads to Dick resigning and running of to join the circus back in Gotham.
The second story opens with Dick reuniting with Alfred and the amnesiac Bruce, before meeting the rest of the Family out among the rooftops, ending with the Annual which features a team-up with the new Superman, before being dragged back to Spyral. During the course of this volume, there is a lot of flashbacking and re-evaluating Dick’s life and career - something also going on over in the Eternal storyline.
The Midnighter does not appear in this volume, but you will find him established as part of the Family in Batman & Robin Eternal, along with Helena. This volume also ends on a bit of a high note, as Dick has now established his own conspiracy, which we look forward to seeing operating in the next volume.
This really is an above-average series.
