Dick Grayson a.k.a. Nightwing has a had a relatively quiet month in Blüdhaven since his buddy, the Flash ran through town. It’s been a welcome respite from the kidnapping and recovery of his girlfriend as well as an uncomfortable glimpse of the multiverse, courtesy of Dr. Simon Hurt. However, things are about to go to hell in “the Blüd,” because Blockbuster is back!
Nightwing # 22 kicks off a new storyline about Blockbuster’s return, and in CraveOnline’s exclusive preview, Dick discovers why it’s been so quiet on the crime front. One of the invading gangs is using weapons that may be alien in origin, and those devices have given them a decided advantage in a war over territory with another gang. Can you guess who’s gonna be in the crossfire?
This issue was written by Tim Seeley with art by Miguel Mendonca, and colors by Chris Sotomayor. Paul Renaud was the primary cover artist and the open order variant cover was drawn by Casey Jones. Here’s the official description from DC Comics:
“BLOCKBUSTER” part one! After years of living in the shadows of others and traveling the globe, Nightwing has found a purpose and a city to call his own in Blüdhaven. Now, Blüdhaven’s prodigal son, Blockbuster, returns to reclaim his city and dispose of Nightwing by any means necessary.
Nightwing # 22 will be released this Wednesday, June 7, in comic stores everywhere.
