At the Mercy of the Sea Butcher! (Nightwing #40 Comic Review)

User Rating: 6.7

Writer: Sam Humphries

Artists: Bernard Chang

Cover: Bernard Chang

Variant: Yasmine Putri

What You Missed:

Nightwing is still hoping to stop the judge once and for all. Feeling guilty for all the deaths the Judge has caused, Dick knows he can’t let the killer escape again. Dick was left at the bottom of the sea after the Judge revealed that not only was he the Sea Butcher, a killer from Bludhaven folklore, but also claimed to be the first judge in the city.

What Happened:

Of course, Nightwing escapes from the Judge’s trap and spends the rest of the issue trying to track down the Judge’s whereabouts.

What I Thought:

There’s a sense of urgency throughout the issue as Nightwing races against a metaphorical clock. This all ties in very nicely to the end of the issue, regardless of how cliché it may be. I think the art rocks and this creative team really understands the sexiness that is Nightwing. Best ass in comics, am I right?

The issue isn’t bad but it sort of feels like an average filler issue. There’s not much that stands out other than Dick’s shirtless panel.

Summary
This issue was sort of disappointing, but I also see it as necessary. I'm definitely ready for the conclusion of this storyline.
