Nightwing Finds a New Place to Display His Logo in Nightwing #50

Yesterday, Bleeding Cool ran some Toronto-based gossip regarding what was coming for Nightwing in the DC Universe.

Well, this released cover for Nightwing #50 may back that up a little…

That’s a very specifically shaped scar, isn’t it? And a rather short haircut — just like Jason Todd is getting as well. But don’t expect Nightwing to be going to Sanctuary. It’s not that kind of storyline.

Here are some upcoming solicitations…

(W) Tom King (A/CA) Tony S. Daniel
The KGBeast lives! The Russian super-assassin is back-but under whose orders? Does he have a specific mission, or is this simply some leftover Cold War mayhem? Nyet, comrade-it has to do with Bruce Wayne’s recent court case involving Mr. Freeze. Something is rotten in Gotham, and you can still smell it, even if it’s on ice! In Shops: Sep 19, 2018 SRP: $3.99

“Knight Terrors” begins here! The big issue #50 kicks off an epic four-part story that brings together critical moments of fear and doubt from the past and the present. A young Dick Grayson hopes to escape the shadow of the Bat and earn the title of Nightwing, while an older Dick Grayson must deal with a blow he did not see coming. A common enemy unites the timelines: the Scarecrow, as you’ve never seen him before!

And a distracting love triangle certainly isn’t helping him focus…This new storyline spins out of events in BATMAN #55. Don’t miss the start of a new direction in Nightwing’s crimefighting career!
