Rarely, if ever, have I seen such brilliant use of recycled material across two books, done so cleverly and executed with such surgeon-like precision.
Whether you are reading Batman, Nightwing or both, you get the full story regarding the Court of Owls that is seemingly central to the upcoming Night of the Owls crossover, yet in similar but different ways.
Dialogue and narration used in Batman is presented here in Nightwing as well, verbatim, but the art in each book is presented by their respective art teams, and the prelude to the shared scene, as well as the final pages of each book are uniquely different.
Different stories, yet the same, masterfully conceived and executed.
If you skip the Night of the Owls crossover in May, don't blame me, I'm telling you now, don't. Snyder is building worlds and utterly destroying every other book on the shelf, and Higgins is wise to come along for the ride. Nightwing has been a solid book since issue #1, and it looks like it's only going to get better.
