Years ago, when Robin took his first uncertain steps away from Batman as his own hero, Superman stepped in and offered Dick Grayson crucial advice, support, and a name: Nightwing. Now it’s time for Nightwing to return the favor.
“Nightwing” no.89 (2/15) and “Superman: Son of Kal-El” no.9 (3/8) will cross over in a two-part story by Tom Taylor, Bruno Redondo, Adriano Lucas and Wes Abbo.
But before Nightwing and Superman team-up in current continuity, fans will get sneak peek into their past. Take a look into a heartfelt flashback scene with Dick Grayson and Jon Kent — plus Batman and Superman! This is a World’s Finest Dads (and a World’s Finest Sons) moment.
“Nightwing” no.89, written by Tom Taylor (“Dark Knights of Steel”) with art and cover by Bruno Redondo (“Injustice,” “Suicide Squad”), color by Adriano Lucas, lettering by Wes Abbott, featuring a card stock variant cover by Jamal Campbell and a 1:25 incentive variant by Bengal, arrives in comic book stores and participating digital retailers on Tuesday, February 15.
The Superman/Nightwing crossover will be concluded in “Superman: Son of Kal-El” no.9 on sale March 8. Nightwing promised Clark Kent that while he’s off-planet, he would look after Clark’s son, Jon, as he tries to fill his father’s shoes as Superman. But with someone out there murdering superpowered people, is Nightwing in over his head?
