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.
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.
