Nightwing Changes Its Volume Numbers After Benjamin Percy Leaves

Nightwing Changes Its Volume Numbers After Benjamin Percy Leaves

Posted by November 1, 2018 Comment

Recently, Bleeding Cool reported on Benjamin Percy’ decision to leave Nightwing with #50, disagreeing with the direction the comic book was taking, editorially. Nightwing had been shot in the head over in Batman and the plan was now to make the character a longterm amnesiac, changing his friends, his experiences, his outlook on life, no longer the character that Percy had been writing.

Percy had joined the series with Nightwing #44 and was planning a long run on the series to follow his 38 issue run on Green Arrow. He was replaced with Scott Lobdell on the series who began writing the series with Nightwing #51.

One other change is the planned numbering of the trade paperbacks. Percy’s first volume had been solicited with a new Vol 1, to emphasise that this was the first volume of Percy’s run with the character.

It has now been renamed Nightwing Vol 7: The Bleeding Edge, collecting Nightwing 44-#49 and the first Nightwing Rebirth Annual.

Amazon.com has the new name, which reads:

It’s a new beginning for Dick Grayson, as novelist Benjamin Percy takes the vigilante on a high-octane, adrenaline-fueled adventure in Nightwing Vol. 7, a great jumping on point for new readers!

Amazon.co.uk currently has the old one.

It’s a new beginning for Dick Grayson, as novelist Benjamin Percy takes the vigilante on a high-octane, adrenaline-fueled adventure in Nightwing VOL. 1, a great jumping on point for new readers!

Will Lobdell get the first Vol 1 now? If so it will begin with Percy’s final issue…

Final orders this week.
