    The plot thickens as Nightwing #107 throws the hero even deeper into the mystery of The Hold, and just what treasure might be waiting with his name upon it. Another solid, fun, character & world-enriching issue that keeps this series hold on being one of the best Nightwing runs.

    Overall, Nightwing #107 is a very strong entry in the series. This issue may raise some concerns for readers as they get about halfway through it, as Taylor introduces a new threat for Nightwing that may be more than meets the eye. It’s handled well and ends the main story in an unnerving tone that should leave readers anxious to find out what happens next. Additionally, the backup story shows why this is the perfect series to successfully tell short stories relating to Nightiwng’s place in the bigger DC Universe without taking away from the main story.

    This story has high stakes, but it’s also very funny and fully indulges in all the jokes about Dick’s attractiveness and popularity. It’s a nice, pulpy break from all the drama and suspense of other arcs.

    Nightwing #107 delivers all the action, mystery, laughs, and adventure you could ever hope for. This title stands out amongst the crowd, has been one of my favorite reads and at the top of my comics pile for close to three years now. Long may it continue. Although, I sense possible trouble at sea between Dick and Babs, now that Bea’s back on the scene.

    I didn’t read the Ric Grayson era of Nightwing comics, so I don’t know anything about Bea, but Taylor does a fine job introducing her and setting up her past relationship with Dick. That adds a lot of personal stakes to this story, and the scene where he has to say goodbye to Babs to fully commit to this Bea adventure was really meaningful. And the rest of the issue was super fun as well! We get a lot of good info on The Hold and what has happened. And the reveal of a secret pirate society is just fun. So all in all, this is just another fun Nightwing issue setting up his next big adventure. And I am fully on board with this silly, yet potentially emotionally satisfying, pirate jaunt.

    Overall, fans will still enjoy this issue of Nightwing. While it is not the strongest issue, it’s still worth picking up and its place in the overarching story still makes this a must read for Nightwing fans. I just hope the next issue picks up in pacing as fans are definitely ready to get this ship moving.

    Nightwing #107 is another fine entry in the series. If you’ve been enjoying this there’s no reason to think that you won’t enjoy this issue. Character reigns supreme and there’s an intriguing story developing in the lead tale. That sense of character continues in the second story and ties the issue together. Hopefully, you’re here for Dick Grayson, the person and not simply the punch ups and actions.

    Not exactly a perfect issue, but a perfectly solid one altogether.

    Overall, I’d like to say I enjoyed this pirate adventure, despite a lingering feeling of disappointment. In some ways, the pirate part of things feels low budget like comparing the WWE to a local circuit. There’s no good reason a swashbuckling adventure in the DC universe feels this small. Luckily, the intimacy of the story gives it a comfortable tone like the romance novels it lampoons. I just don’t think the Crew Of The Crossed Keys are living up to the hype whatsoever in looks or story. Hopefully, Dirk will give the next part of the story the edge it needs to bring it home.

    Nightwing #107 fills in interesting tidbits about Blüdhaven’s history, and the mediocre plot makes sense, but Tom Taylor’s character work makes Nightwing look incompetent, and the art is just serviceable.
