Nightwing’s life has come crumbling in on him.
The vigilante formerly known as Robin has cut ties with Batman and with his super-hero friends in the Teen Titans and the Outsiders. So what’s left for him to turn to? How about the least likely thing — a life of crime.
Mobbed Up shows Dick Grayson — A.K.A. Nightwing —kicked off the Blüdhaven police force and embittered by the events of last year’s big Bat-crossover War Games that saw him shot in the leg, begin the slow infiltration of the city’s organized crime.
But after displaying his initiative to his new bosses with a little more rough stuff than a hero might usually use, the question of Grayson’s true motives becomes a mystery.
Is he truly so frustrated with the side of angels that he’s turned to the dark?
Writer Devin Grayson and artists Phil Hester, Ande Parks and Cliff Chang give us another solid Nightwing volume — one with more twists and turns than the average mountain pass.
