NIGHTWING VOL.2: NIGHT OF THE OWLS collects issues #8-12 and #0. Issues #8 and #9 is part of the "Night of the Owls" event/story, issues #10-#12 is the 3-part "Republic of Tomorrow" story, and origin of Nightwing is in issue #0.
The 2-part Night of the Owls story is during the Batman family cross over from Batman: Night of the Owls (The New 52), which deal with Nightwing fighting the current Talon for the Court of Owls and finding out Dick Grayson and the Talon have far more of a connection and history then Dick ever imagined. And the 3-part Republic of Tomorrow story deals with a shady cult group that claim to be Gotham's true savor and wants Nightwing dead for a murder he's framed for by unknown forces.
Kyle Higgins key theme in this volume is the inner workings of Dick Grayson's history growing up and the connection he has with Gotham. The Night of the Owls 2-parter is one of the best things about the event and for Nightwing himself. We get a good look at the family history of Dick Grayson's ancestor and his inner workings, as well as the origin of Dick Grayson's last name. It gives the conflict with the Talon and Dick a strong emotional story and payoff.Read more ›
Dick goes from being Youthful to being Older on a whim, somehow. Not sure how the artist manages that, not sure if it's on purpose. But his age can appear to vary by a few years from book to book. No, it's not time travel. It's just the artist. It doesn't detract from the book at all.
Overall, I love the Series and I love Nightwing. If you're reading The New 52 you're not doing yourself any favors by missing this one.
Writer Kyle Higgins has done an amazing job on this series getting me to love a character that I was merely indifferent about before. A lot of writers don't adapt well to having their comic being forced to crossover with others. Trying to make a crossover fit into a comic series is often akin to hammering a square peg into a round hole. I'm pretty sure that the main plot points about the Court of the Owls were laid out in meetings somewhere, but Higgins is the one that took the ball and ran with it. He not only made the Owls fit organically into the Nightwing series, he made them vital to Dick Grayson's history. The whole book is good, but the first two issues here, #8 & #9, are great. Higgins' writing gets 4.5 stars and makes me want to rush right out and pick up volume 3.Read more ›
After that night ends, Dick begins to work on a private project to improve a certain area in Gotham that has been decaying for a long time. He does not have enough money for the project on his own but does not want to as Bruce for help. So in order to get the money he needs for this, he has a meeting with a certain bank employee to apply for a loan which will put him in a very awkward spot.
On the following night, Nightwing investigates why one of his escrima sticks was found at the scene of a murder. One detective believes that Nightwing is the murderer and begins pursuing him in order to arrest and unmask him. Luckily, Nightwing will find allies in unusual places that will aid him in their own ways so that he can find the true killer.

This was a very solid and satisfying read from start to finish. Epic start, into the book with the night of owls arc and it keeps that similar pace throughout the book. Read morePublished 13 hours ago by Vote4ian
I have always loved Nightwing. This voume perfectly exemplifies why, and what separates him from Batman. But do not let the title fool you. This barely involves the Court of Owls.Published 1 month ago by Neal S.
