So what got this major Marvel fan to read a DC comic.  Well, to be honest, I do like DC comics, heck I love all comics, but what grabbed me on this book was the artwork.  I just loved the style and action of the cover alone, and then once I opened book, I loved all of the artwork. It is just a really beautiful book to read.

Nightwing, the vigilante protector of Blüdhaven has to rely on former enemies to become allies to combat the possible destruction of his city.  The Raptor doesn’t know what he’s in for but soon learns that Nightwing is not a second stringer.

Beautiful artwork, in depth story and great dialogue work together to create a book worthy of any comic book fan.


Publisher’s Summary

Assassin. Vigilante. Mentor. And now nemesis. From his career as one of the Court of Owls’ hired killers to his stint as Dick Grayson’s would-be partner and teacher, the man called Raptor has always been one of the world’s deadliest fighters. And now that Nightwing has rejected his offer, he’s poised to become the greatest foe the black-and-blue guardian of Blüdhaven has ever known.

But Nightwing has other, older enemies in his adopted hometown. Now he’ll need to count on them as allies.

When Raptor’s vendetta threatens the lives of every man, woman and child in the Blüd, Nightwing is forced to turn to the man who hates him most, Blockbuster, for help. It’s a team-up like nothing Nightwing has ever known–as if Batman and The Joker joined forces.

That’s exactly what makes the alliance so dangerous. If it succeeds, Raptor will feel victory slip through his talons. But if it fails, the entire city of Blüdhaven will fall…

Nightwing Vol. 5: Raptor’s Revenge is a pulse-pounding thriller that pits Nightwing against an unforgettable addition to his rogues gallery, from writer Tim Seeley (Batman Eternal) and artists Javier Fernandez (Red Hood/Arsenal), Miguel Mendonça (Wonder Woman) and Diana Egea (Smallville: Season Eleven).
