Exclusive Preview: NIGHTWING #11

Nightwing is being framed for several murders and unfortunately for him, there's a new group of deadly villains looking to make him pay for those killings.

Last issue we saw Nightwing getting back to his roots. We also saw a familiar face from a pretty big pre-New 52 story. If you've been reading this current series, you're aware that Nightwing has been framed for some murders. As he tries to get to the bottom of it all, a new villain is in town looking to make him pay for what has happened.

Check out this exclusive preview of next week's NIGHTWING #11 courtesy of DC Comics.

“The Republic of Tomorrow, Today ” continues! • NIGHTWING faces off against PARAGON, the leader of an anti-GOTHAM CITY group!

I can't wait. This, Batman, and Green Lantern are always on my pull list.

Looks pretty cool. But the whole heroes do only wrong spiel was just done by the Revengers. Need to be more innovative.

After an unexpected yet welcome wall post from the Sandman_ its been brought to my attention that the one and only Sandra Woosan will make her long awaited debut. Apparently in Nightwing #12. However according to Tumblr is says issue 13. Either way I dont care. Finally my girl gets her shine back!

Here's the image from #12

@Mercy_: Actually....the solicit is wrong. Higgins won't be writing Shiva. Tom DeFalco will be. :(

I really love what DC has done to this character. I just started reading this and im very impressed. Not very many sidekicks go on to be interesting lead characters in their own series.

I'm digging the more detailed depiction of his costume and the what may be the slow return of the arm and finger stripes (striped fingers crossed!).

Posted by Godlike130

Well it reads good, and its nice to see them spicing up his escrima sticks, but the art is, well, unfortunately not very good IMO.

I think it looks great! If you think you can do better then be our guest!

Tom DeFalco is filling in for two issues of Nightwing. Hope that means that Higgins is busy working on another Bat-family comic. Please let him take over Batman Inc.

I still miss Nightwing's previous costume.

Posted by Suprman

@Miss_Garrick: Me too, I like the design but why can't it be blue again?

Posted by Miss_Garrick

@Suprman: Yeah, Blue implied stealth and cool. Red, especially the shade they using, is hostile and mean.

Very good story and I love the art, but surely nobody can think that the story is an original concept...


Posted by KNlGHTWlNG

I have mixed feelings about the red. I feel like the red is kind of paying homage to his days of being Robin. I mean Tim is Red Robin and Jason is Red Hood and yes I realize that him being red was not because of being Robin but because of the Joker but still... Blue was different from the Robin costume and kind of made him and individual. Although Batman is a dark blue sometimes. In the end, I am just excited about this series and how the New 52 has continued to make Dick stick close to the Bat Family but also be a hero on his own.

Oooh Dick Grayson how are you gonna get yourself out of this one.

Posted by wessaari

i really like this art compared to barrows

Posted by TDK_1997

I love Barrows' art more but this one ain't bad,too.

Posted by SmoothJammin

Never liked Barrows art to be honest. I want this guy on the book
