xx Nightwing TPBs
« Thread started on: Jan 19th, 2006, 1:26pm »

As you probably know "Nightwing Mobbed Up" featuring issues #107-111 is coming out relatively soon. Now up until very recently the Monthlies have never been available to me living in England and so I rely on the TPBs that are extremely behind for Nightwing. With the last TPB (excluding Year One) containing issues 52, 54-60 there is a substantial gap; with some very vital story telling. Nightwing 100 (which I do own) pretty much concludes the story first set up in the very beginning, and from what I can see, 107 onwards begins a new chapter.

Is there any word on the future of Nightwing TPBs? Although I like seeing an up to date Nightwing TPB, I don't want DC to ignore such a substantial block of issues that need collecting. For example I tracked down #93 (that took a while!) and that issue is bloody amazing! It would be a crime not to collect that and the preceeding story line and open it up to a wider audience for whom getting the monthlies is just not feasable. I just want to know if DC are going to fill in the gap or just ignore it forever. If they do choose to ignore it I think they will get concerned email sent their way.

I haven't heard anything, but I'd speculate that this tpb (Mobbed up) is only being "rushed" due to the Crisis. I'd assume they'll catch up since they started numbering them on the spine. All the Dixon stuff is awesome, and the first few Grayson stories were good. Since then, her stuff has been rather lacking...

Tell me that the Dixon issues are TPBed now. Because if they have the gull to publish the Greyson issues before Dixon, then I'll be pissed. angry

Dixon wrote through issue 70. Excluding Year One, only 1-60 are in tpb so far. I'm sure they'll release another soon.

Thanks, that's reassuring to hear smiley. However if I see a number 8 on the Mobbed Up spine I might just cry (Ha what a smiley to use!)

While I haven't myself enjoyed the whole "undercover" Nightwing series, I was hoping that DC would build it up and end it in an awesome way. Now, in light of IC, it seems DC is rushing the story in order to get Nightwing ready for OYL changes. Nightwing is, by far, my favorite character in the Bat-Family, and hopefully DC can bring him back to the glory that the former boy wonder deserves.

Well I read it last night, as previosuly mentioned I didn't have the oppertunity when the run intitially started so I've had to wait for the book. I must say I really enjoyed it! I feel #111 was a little weaker than the rest as it seemed to depart from the mood, but overall I actually think it's one of the most interesting Nightwing trades I've read.

I can't understand why #112-117 weren't included though, it wouldn't make the book too book at all and I'm sure would make it much more complete. So yes I want DC to hurry up and get those issues out VERY SOON! But I also want them to get off their asses and get all the old Nightwing stuff out in TPB form, my book shelf has unacceptable gaps!

Has anyone gotten a chance to read "Renagade"?
It covers issues 112-117.

I thought the storyline was a little bit rushed and disjointed at parts, and the art seemed a little off to me, but when the crisis tie-in came in, it seemed to get better. I think its safe to say i like to see Dick better in the good old black and blue.

Now we just have to wait for the next tpb, "Brothers In Blood" which is set to cover the OYL storyline up to issue 122.

Renegade. sad
At least it ended well. I didn't hate Devin Grayson's Nightwing as much as some people, though I do have major problems with it (Tarantula rape, Trantula existing, Dick marrying Tarantula, him allowing Tarantula to kill Blockbuster, Renegade, etc.).
