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.
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 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.

All in all I think nightwing is the best comic in the new 52 bunch. The art was absolutely amazing (with the Dick Grayson in issue 12) and the storyline is fantastic.Published on 30 Nov. 2013 by Gayle
