When Nightwing #44 arrives on May 2, 2018, you’ll notice Benjamin Percy at the wheel, penning the adventures of everyone’s favorite Nightwing.*
Nightwing #44 kicks off The Bleeding Edge storyline, that will “lay the groundwork for a centrally important threat to the DCU.”
In this arc, change is on the horizon when a new technologist sets his sights on Blüdhaven, creating a holographic, interconnected city where everyone is an individual and part of a larger network. It’s the internet made physical. Gentrification on gigabyte-laced steroids. But when this new utopia encroaches on his turf, Nightwing starts to uncover a sinister plot based not on revenge…but on a reckoning.
“The best way to approach NIGHTWING is as a high-octane, adrenaline-fueled mystery and adventure,” says Benjamin Percy in a press release from DC Comics. “I’m going to crank up the volume on that world, dose it full of steroids and poison, and dream up a digital nightmare that will ultimately impact the entire DCU.”
Also joining Nightwing in May is artist Christopher Mooneyham, who has “a tight line, cinematic vision, and can ground one moment in emotional realism and elevate the next to eye-popping levels of super-heroic awesomeness,” according to Percy.
