Tomasi's goal was pretty obvious; to breath some new life into the Nightwing series. And get back to telling some good old fashioned vigilante stories featuring everyone's favorite Robin, Dick Grayson. Basically, do what the past three Nightwing scribes have failed to do.
I would love to tell you that Mr. Tomasi achieved his goal with flying colors. That he wrote a classic Nightwing story that was fresh and an invigorating reboot of the title. Unfortunately, Tomasi only partially succeeded in his goal. He does bring Nightwing back to a more acceptable and classic style. And gives Dick some of the best characterization since Dixon left the title all those years ago. But outside of that, Tomasi has crafted a very forgettable and stale adventure in Freefall.
There is no invigoration in this story, there is nothing new and fresh to this story to bring new fans in, and keep old fans hanging around for more. By the final chapter of Freefall, I couldn't help but feel it was all rather pedestrian, and ultimately boring.
Truthfully, the longer Nightwing goes without a obvious purpose and direction, and the more writers I see try and fail to craft new, fun stories for the character, the more I agree with DC's recent decision to cancel the series.
I don't blame Tomasi for the shortcomings of this book.Read more ›
