Once Future State is over, DC Comics is bringing back old favorites with new creative teams. In March 2021, Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo will take on Nightwing.
In Taylor and Redondo’s Nightwing run, Blüdhaven has elected a new mayor with the last name Zucco, which can’t be good for DC’s first sidekick and former Robin—but is it good for Blüdhaven? When Nightwing enlists Batgirl’s help in investigating the politician bearing the same name as the man who murdered his parents, she unearths details that will shock and fundamentally change the hero.
And appearing in the first issue of Taylor and Redondo’s new Nightwing comic is a potential new sidekick for Dick Grayson—a three-legged puppy that he shields from harm in Blüdhaven’s alleys! Will Nightwing adopt this nameless mutt? And will she warm fan’s hearts as fast as Nightwing kicks her tormentor’s butts?
“Despite, awkwardly, killing him twice (in Injustice and DCeased),” said Taylor, “I’m a huge Nightwing fan. And I couldn’t be more excited to take on a hero I’ve always considered a DC A-lister. Our series is about showing that. It’s about putting Dick Grayson back on that pedestal where he belongs.”
Nightwing, Batgirl, AND a dog? Sounds like Nightwing #78 will be a must read comic when it arrives on March 16, 2021.
