Dick Grayson – The Butt Of Every Joke At DC Comics? Nightwing #79

 

Nightwing, Dick Grayson, is known for having quite the butt. Today, Barbara Gordon, his wife-in-a-reality-that-may-count-we're-not-entirely-sure lay blame somewhere else. His dress sense.

The tightest of costumes for the tightest of asses apparently. Which means when he's not in costume, his clothes will feel all loose and baggy, leaving him prone to the occasional bump and steal.

Dick Grayson just gets no respect, Cassandra Cain will remind him of this every day and, it seems, Barbara Gordon can do the whole Oracle thing through Slack now. A but like we all can really. Everyone can be an Oracle on Twitter now – of course, that may be part of the problem. It's not like things will get any better for old Dick Grayson in the Future either.

See? No respect. Nightwing #79, still doing its very best Fraction/Aja Hawkeye impression, is published today from DC Comics.

Dick Grayson has inherited Alfred's fortune, a puppy, and a whole lot of questions. Who is Mayor Zucco, and what is her relation to the man who murdered Dick's parents? What sinister plans does Blockbuster have for Blüdhaven? What kind of dog food is best for a three-legged puppy? To answer these questions, Dick's going to need a little help from his friends—past and present. Retail: $3.99

I bought my copy of Nightwing #79 from Piranha Comics in Kingston-Upon-Thames. Piranha Comics is a small south London comic store chain with a small south-east store in Kingston-Upon Thames's market centre, and a larger south-west store in Bromley, with an extensive back issue collection and online store. With a new store planned for Watford, if you are in the neighbourhood, check them out.
