Yeah it was hard to pick one over the other... both are perfect examples of how serious and fun a graphic novel should be while maintaining a strong political presence and establishing some seriously badass characters. Easily the best stories coming out of the awful 80's... but Watchmen had moments where my jaw dropped as I read it and craved more after the last page.

Hmm... I am curious how this will play out. A new direction for a beloved badass character isn't always a bad thing and at some point they'll bring him back to his Nightwing role. I'll give it a chance before shooting it down because Grayson needs a little more depth on his own and it'll genuinely push him to his limits while getting him out of the Bat-World and out of Blüdhaven.. err Chicago.

This happens with every crisis or crisis-like event. Every ####### time! They didn't meet their deadline or due to some sort of backlash had to hurry and change their original ending. My guess is that they were going to follow through on killing Nightwing (because Geoff Johns and Dan Didio hate him) but since the fans love him and were outspoken on the stupidity of such actions - DC changed their minds and in turn had to "fix" the story. That's what I think... at least with Final Crisis a few years back they openly admitted that J.G. Jones fell behind and had other artists complete the series. We didn't storm the castle then because we weren't left in the dark... like we are now.

Geoff was the only reason he survived Infinite Crisis.

Just because he didn't die during Infinite Crisis doesn't mean it didn't cross Geoff's mind.

It crossed Didio's mind but Johns sees Nightwing as the leader of the next generation he knows he is too important to kill. Also the reason FE is getting delayed is Finch. Johns said so in Dc all access a while back so you are false in many fields.

Dude, I said "My guess is that" -- anyways... I still think it's a conspiracy, albeit a litghthearted one not shared by you. I read where GJ blames Finch for the delay on the double sized issue #7, but I'm going to stick to guns on GJ and DD personally not liking Nightwing.

@k4tzm4n is it too late to make this an official "battle of the" something? Solid Snake needs some love.
