Le Relaunch des séries DC offre un très bon volume (Nightwing #1 à 7). Il y a un suspense intéressant, quelque péripétie un peu trop fantastique à mon gout par moment. A avoir absolument pour les fans de Dick Grayson. On regretterait presque que les mensuel Nightwing ne sorte pas en France au sein de Batman Saga !
[SPOIL] Le lien avec la Cour des Hiboux offre une ampleur d'autant plus grande et passionnante à cette aventure de l'ex boy-wonder, même si du coup la révélation finale est déjà connu des lecteurs des aventures de Batman.

Nightwing and his Traveling Circus16 octobre 2012
Anarchy in the US
- Publié sur Amazon.com
With all of the new titles coming in the DC New 52, Nightwing wasn't on my list of pick ups. Not that I don't enjoy Nightwing, but I had way too many other weekly comics I was picking up, and Nightwing wasn't one of them. And I thought there were way too many Bat-titles to pick up, so I passed on it. But I was reading Scott Snyder's Batman Vol. 1: The Court of Owls (The New 52) monthly comic, and heard some people saying Nightwing's subtle connections to Batman and the story of the Owls, so it got me interested. And so, I decided I'd pick up Nightwing in trade form when it was released. How's it hold up? Not bad at all.
NIGHTWING VOL.1: TRAPS AND TRAPEZES collect issues #1-7. Dick Grayson, AKA Nightwing, as returned to his former title after spending time as Batman while Bruce Wayne was out of town (Batman: The Black Mirror and Batman: Gates of Gotham for example). Grayson is happy enjoying his current life and identity again in Gotham, but Haly's Circus is back in town, which is Grayson's old traveling circus as a boy, and things suddenly start happening. A masked assassin shows up by the name of Saiko wanting Greyson dead, a woman enters his life, Grayson inherits the circus, and the past comes back to haunt him. Now Grayson and his circus travel around the country, while he's off to solve this case.
New comer writer Kyle Higgins made a decent name for himself in Gates of Gotham, and gave a reasonable portrayal of Dick Grayson as Batman. Now that he has reign over Grayson in his old Nightwing persona, he gets to let loose and it makes for a good comic. Beyond the conspiracy Grayson is tracking down this assassin, we get a nice natural feel of Grayson's values, beliefs, and yes: witty, sarcastic humor. The ingredients I think we all enjoy for Nightwing. Much of the better wording comes from the banter and a special guest from the Bat-family. And further exploration of Dick Grayson being the Robin that was positive and looked ahead is a good character study as well. Overall, it's a good book for new readers, even if you've never read any of Grayson's previous stint as Batman (though it's recommended).
And the prime reason I picked it up (and maybe for those people as well), being some of the ties to The Court of Owls storyline. I will say that it's not essential to the Court of Owls, but the story plays a reasonable role in Nightwing that works very good on its own, as well as a better perspective of Grayson's point-of-view from BATMAN #7. Well done there.
Eddy Barrows art is amazing. His art looks so close to Aquaman artist Ivan Reis I confuse the two sometimes, because they both draw so well and similar. Fill-in artist Eduardo Pansica and Geraldo Borges are not as strong as Barrows art, but they handle the narrative fairly well when it comes in. And special fill-in artist Trevor McCarthy does issue #4, which is quite comedic, but might throw off some readers of the narrative from the art change. But overall, no biggie.
Some faults include the mentioned art changes in between issues, as well as issue #5 introduces an odd, super-natural plot device that just doesn't feel like it belongs here. Other then at, the book holds up on its own.
NIGHTWING VOL.1: TRAPS AND TRAPEZES may not be ground-breaking or sticking out among some other Bat-books, but it does hold up as a good and fun title for Nightwing fans, new and old. It also holds up as a solid story for Dick Grayson that organically crosses over with Batman #7 and The Court of Owls/Night of the Owls arc. Here's to more Nightwing in the future.

"Nightwing Volume 1: Traps and Trapezes" Graphic Novel Review10 novembre 2012
ERSInk . com
- Publié sur Amazon.com
Out of the new batch of Batman-Family books, Nightwing is by far one of my favorites. I never gave the super hero much thought before the New 52. However, I decided to give the monthly series a try after seeing the striking preview pages for issue #1. His new red and black suit appealed to me much more than the one with a blue logo. I know it's shallow to judge a comic book icon on looks alone, but they are characters in a visual medium after all.
I'm glad I gave that first issue a chance and immediately became addicted to it. A new graphic novel collection of the first seven issues entitled "Nightwing Volume 1: Traps and Trapezes" gives new readers a chance to jump on board now.
Haley's Circus returns to Gotham City, bringing with it a trail of murder, mystery, peril, and supernatural evil. Dick Grayson / Nightwing rejoins the traveling show to uncover the truth behind sinister deeds that haunt the greatest show on Earth. He uncovers more than he bargained for when a mysterious costumed assassin calling himself Saiko appears with an obvious taste for vengeance against either Grayson or his alter ego.
Writer Kyle Higgins takes the reader on a cross-country adventure filled with plenty of action and engaging stories. He does a great job incorporating some familiar faces into the pages and even getting one involved in the heavy duty crime-fighting workload Grayson has taken on. Higgins is also unafraid of going into supernatural territory, which many current Bat-Family writers avoid.
Eddy Barrows, Eduardo Pansica, and Geraldo Borges handle the penciling for the book. Each of their styles is similar enough to where it isn't distracting. The illustrations lean towards realism. There's one flashback towards the end that stands out more than anything else. The difference in drawings gives the section a surreal feeling like we're in a dream.
"Nightwing Volume 1: Traps and Trapezes" is an entertaining read from start to finish. There's something for everyone within its pages. We get a realistic storyline and a paranormal tale all within its pages. Nightwing is all grown up and is more than capable to carry his own monthly series as reflected in this graphic novel collection.

A little too much of the origin story for Nightwing22 avril 2013
- Publié sur Amazon.com
I give this 5 stars for the writing and artwork, even though I have a few issues with it, because they are trivial. First, this story is very much about the origin of Nightwing, once the first Robin, and whose real name is Richard Grayson. As the first Robin, Dick tends to be like an older brother to the younger members of the Wayne family, followed by Tim Drake (Red Robin of the Teen Titans), then by Jason Todd (killed by Joker, resurrected by Ra's al Ghul, now Red Hood), and finally, Damian Wayne, the youngest and current Robin (see issue #18 in the crossovers for the Requiem story).
I like Nightwing a lot. I like his good attitude. No matter what happens between him and Batman, him and Batgirl, or anyone else, he never loses his good nature or loses his cool--he maintains composure even when under duress. He is a staunch professional vigilante crime-fighter who every bit deserved to wear the cowl of Batman while Bruce was indisposed (see Batman RIP and The Return of Bruce Wayne).
In these first 7 issues, we get the origin of Dick Grayson again, and it's a bit overkill, unfortunately--almost worth a star rating, but I won't... Yes, he and his parents are acrobats in Haly's Circus, and yes, they fell and died when he was a child, and yes, Bruce Wayne adopted him. That is kind of told to death (forgive the pun), but then, so is the story of Bruce losing his parents, so I can forgive it on that precedent. What really impresses with this story is just how important Haly's Circus (and Nightwing) is to the Court of Owls story in Batman main. Without actually mentioning the word "Owl" anywhere in this GN, it is masterfully tied in with the Court of Owls nightmare that Batman goes through--and nearly dies from--in that story.
The revelation that "Grayson" means a Gray Son was a creative tie-in, if a bit of a stretch. (For additional background on this bit of history, see Talon and Western).
I like the romance, which is fun and funny at times, especially the scene where Barbara has run-in with Dick's current girlfriend, and they look almost like twins. Awkward!
Among all of the Bat-series, (and I read them all), I put them in this order by preference: Batman Detective Dark Knight Batman and Robin Batgirl Catwoman Nightwing Teen Titans Red Hood and the Outlaws Birds of Prey Suicide Squad

Nightwing:Just as we remember him!27 février 2013
- Publié sur Amazon.com
I was initially worried about the Nightwing series when I saw that they changed his costume color to red. In the midst of this New 52 reboot, any horrible thing could happen to the characters we know an love. But my concerns have been put to rest. Nightwing is still the young maturing hero that I've always known him to be and he still likes to mouth off to his enemies every now and then (not too much though). The story revolves around the secrets of Haly's Circus which Dick grew up with, so its a very personal story that is relevant to the character. I also liked how Nightwing's story directly connects with Batman: Court of Owls without Dick being overshadowed by Batman or other DC characters. There was ONE thing in this comic that I thought was out of place was a scene where the circus's clown, Jimmy's, wife summons some kind of demon to consume him. It was probably part of another comic, but it was so sudden and almost irrelevant to anything going on. Anyway, don't let the new costume fool you. It's still the same old Dick Grayson. And if you're a fan, then you definitely won't be disappointed.
