As a big, long-time Batman fan, I’m particularly fascinated by two things going on in that family of comics at DC.
It’s been a terrific week for fans of Superman and Batman, and we get to celebrate that here at the Wayne’s Comics Podcast with a special 94th episode!
First up is a great interview with Nightwing and upcoming Batman Beyond scribe Kyle Higgins, who talks about both gigs and how he got into writing for the Batman family of comics. He discusses the current storyline with Dick Grayson in Chicago and gives a couple of hints about what we might expect in the coming months.
Then I talk with Dave Romeo from Comics on the Green in Scranton, Pennsylvania, about how his great store is doing (and the industry as well). Their site is located at comicsonthegreen.com!
Everything wraps up my “faster than a speeding bullet” review of the new Superman film Man of Steel, so don’t miss it!
Kyle Higgins, the current writer of Nightwing, has an unparalleled love of superheroes that manifests itself in his short film The League.

It’s Nightwing’s origin for the New 52! How does Dick Grayson go from mild-mannered acrobat to super heroic tights-wearing acrobat? What new details will we learn from this new beginning? Read on to find out!
Nightwing has been away for almost a year. Dick Grayson had been a little busy with some other responsibilities. You know, like assuming the mantle of Gotham’s Biggest Badass, The Gosh Darned Batman! Now that he’s back on the scene, we can learn how DC’s relaunch has impacted Bruce Wayne’s first adopted son. How can you find out? Well, besides buying the comic, the next best thing you can do is take the JUMP.
