Format: Paperback
Nightwing: Old Friends, New Enemies collects a series of Nightwing stories from Action Comics Weekly published circa 1987. The good thing is that even a casual fan who doesn't understand the difference between "pre-Crisis" and "post-Crisis" can still read, understand and enjoy these stories. Both story arcs feature a team-up between Nightwing and Green Arrow's grown-up sidekick Speedy (of "My ward is a junkie!" infamy) and are a pretty obvious attempt at another "Hard Traveling Heroes"-style series. The first storyline depicts Nightwing and Speedy confronting the assassin Cheshire, who also happens to be the mother of Speedy's child. The second storyline depicts the heroes getting caught up in the chaos of Irish politics. The more expressionistic art in the second storyline fits the somewhat gloomy Irish setting well, but it also utilizes non-descript characters in a story that's chock full of them, making the somewhat complicated plot difficult to follow. A Secret Origins issue that recaps Nightwing's origin is also included in the collection.

The name of this collection is misleading, but for fans of the Speedy/Cheshire relationship, this is about as good as it gets. I'm proud to have this book in my collection. I recommend this to fans of the Wolfman/Perez New Teen Titans series, and also to fans of the Young Justice cartoon who want to see one of the stories that inspired the the Roy Harper/Cheshire dynamic.

It's great to see Nightwing's Action Comics issues appear in a trade and this is a great one. There are three "main" stories in this trade: Nightwing, Secret Origins; the story of Roy enlisting Dick to help find Roy's daughter Lian from her mother (though in a roundabout way, of course); and the last has Roy teaming up again with Dick later on to solve a connected case.

The stories are good and fun, and the art is generally pretty strong, especially on movement scenes. It is a little noticeable that they were run only a few pages at a time, originally; there are a few places where you'll read a few panels only to see the same panel from a slightly different angle on the very next page. It all added to the charm of it, though. Most of my complaints about the stories are nitpicks that aren't really fair considering there's been 25+ years of canon that's been added and rewritten, and even still, there's nothing that seems so out of place that you'd stop reading.

As dated and corny as some of the stories are, they're all enjoyable and are still great reads. It's a fun slice of DC history and, heck, it's even worth it for the ridiculous drawn '80s fasion! Definitely one for Dick Grayson and Roy Harper fans to pick up!

poorly advertised and described... I bought it to read a classic Nightwing storyline. Instead I got a classic Speedy storyline with a repeated Nightwing appearance
