Format: Paperback
Nightwing has to be - in my opinion at least, one of the strongest titles within The New 52. The character of Dick Grayson has well and truly emerged from under Bruce Wayne's shadow (and Nightwing from under that of Bats himself).

This volume comprises the two part cross-over to the Night of the Owls saga and is an exceptionally well crafted tale that chronicles the life of William Cobb (Dick's great grandfather - told through flashbacks) cleverly interwoven with the events of the 'night' itself.

Then we're into the three part tale that sees Nightwing up against the Republic of Tomorrow and their leader Paragon. It's a strong story that allows a B story that develop between Dick and Sonia Branch (the daughter of Tony Zucco - the man responsible for the death of Dick's parents).

The Zero issue completes the volume and it's an origin story - updated for the New 52, that shows how Dick came to become the first Robin.

An excellent volume that I read in one sitting. A must buy!!

This volume is easily the equal to the first in terms of quality and tone, it's actually difficult to add anything that hasn't been said about the first volume, so many new 52 series have been disappointing but Nightwing stands out as one of the best, Kyle Higgins has really nailed the essence of what makes Dick Grayson a great character in his own right.

This collection contains three parts, the 2 part Night of the Owls crossover, the three part story concerning the academy of tomorrow and the zero issues which is the new 52 way of saying origin story, I won't go into too much detail of the plot but all three are high quality stories the zero issue especially does a very good job of showing how and why Dick choose to be who he is, and the important thing is that it was a choice giving him a firm grasp off his own potential early on does make sense especially how they have made a point of his independence in the story so far.

After finding so much to like about the first collection I was worried that standards would slip but I was happy to have my fears dismissed, Dick Grayson if there is any justice in the world should stand alone as one of DC premier heroes, there is still the link to Batman but Dick going so far as to at one point break into the Batcave to do some research (leading to a very interesting conversation with another DC character) but he is very much his own man and a hero in his own right, great stuff and once again highly recommended.

Very well written and drawn story. Crosses over nicely with the other Court of Owls story with Batman.
The whole story is very clever, well thought out and just brilliant. If you are a fan of Nightwing or Batman or great stories buy this.

By Squirr-El HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 15 Aug. 2014
Format: Paperback
The stories running through issues #8-13 of DC Comics’ New 52 title ‘Nightwing’ are collected, along with issue #0, as Nightwing Volume 2: Night of the Owls TP (The New 52). This is an excellent volume with superb scripting and artwork. The first two issues, which build on the previous volume’s story, tie directly in to the Night of the Owls crossover event, and reveal a deeper back-story to the Grayson family than we have ever seen in the past. The second story, a sort of conspiracy thriller which links in to earlier stories in this series, also sees Dick’s personal life come to the fore, with some sub-plots that will pay-off in the next volume, though with a satisfying climax to the main plot in this volume. The issue #0 story is a brilliant new take on Robin’s origin story, taking nothing away, but adding an amazing amount of depth.

The Batman Family really are doing better than the main Batman titles in terms of quality of storytelling.

Issue #8 – “Bloodlines” – opens in Gotham City, 1910, as we follow a young boy who demonstrates exceptional skills, which brings him to the attention of a circus proprietor, and whose story is interspersed in flashbacks during the course of this issue. Meanwhile, in the present day, Alfred the Butler sends out a general alert to the Batman Family that the Court of Owls has sent its assassins – the Talons – to kill Gotham’s civic leaders.

Its ok in parts but even to someone who really likes nightwing, its difficult to engage with these stories...they just seem repetitive and somewhat pointless...characters seem to have little or no motivation for what they do and story points seem to peter out and become bland...not terrible but not good either.
