Nightwing #81 review

It seems rude, I try not to, but I can’t help it. Usually, when reading a new comic, I find myself stopping to make notes. A word here, a sentence there, just in case I decide to give it a shout-out here. Not with the new Nightwing. Since writer Tom Taylor, illustrator Bruno Redondo and […]
