Nightwing #7

Masterfully played, Mr. Kyle Higgins. Nightwing's final confrontation against Saiko turned out to be just the lid of an ugly, ugly can of worms; one that took Dick Grayson's whole life and in a most unexpected twist put it at the center of a dark and sinister conspiracy. Without making any significant changes to the superficial story, Higgins has retconned the character's origin down to its roots, and bridged the events of this series to those being told by Scott Snyder in "Batman," so revealing the one true enemy in the story: Gotham. There is nothing to say about Eddy Barrows and Geraldo Borges' work that has not been said before; their seamless collaboration delivers some of the best art in the New 52. Their overlapping panels, and the use of scenes as the background for others, make for very distinctive and energetic visuals.  All in all, a great issue with surprising "Turning Points."
