vagrantsaint's Nightwing #148 - The Great Leap, Part Two review

B Level Entertainment

And no that "B" in the title of this review does NOT stand for Bitchin!
Ok, so in this issue Nightwing takes a bullet saving the DA's life.  He stashes her away in a safe house then barely makes it back to the Batcave where Alfred takes care of him.  After a little TLC, Dick regroups with Carol and they head off to New York. 
Rag's art is sub-par for hiim.  He was awesome back in Identity Crisis, but this stuff just does NOT live up to that.
The story is merely "ok" as well. Two-Face doesn't seem to act with the same character flaws that make him Two-Face.  Also it seems like there's too much reliance on the bat-glider thing that Nightwing's using.  Not to mention that the glider seems WAY advanced.  I know that Wayne-Tech funds all the bat-gear, but this was a little much for me.  On a good note, I did like the scene with Alfred watching over Nightwin while he was recovering.  It showed a lot of emotion there with very few, if any, words.  With everything happening in the Batman books, it's no surprise that Alfred really worries over Dick.
Why is this book a B-rate book?  Just sayin'.
Until next time...

If you like to see Nightwing bleed a lot, then by all means, spend your money on it because there's much blood spilled. He spends the issue trying to recover from bullet injuries while trying to keep Carol (Harvey Two-Face's ex) safe. The en...

    Favorite covers: DC 0

    I read the book, but to be completely honest, I don't want to review it. I enjoyed it and I can understand, to a degree, why it's a tie-in, but it takes imagination to tie everything together, it's not laid out on the page for you. However, this did make my favorite covers list, a list that doesn't technically exist.... I'll do it one of these days. What do I like about this issue, well how about this: It's completely misleading. No, Dick doesn't die and no one really though he would, at least I...
