This is how it went down in Batman #55 by Tom King, Tony Daniel and Danny Miki. On a rooftop, chasing a clue, but too late.
BANG. And for Dick Grayson, Robin, Nightwing, everything changed.
And today we get to see that scene again, shown to an amnesiac Dick Grayson which was, apparently, being filmed at the time. With appropriate and well-timed close up. Maybe Batman has a body cam, that's my only explanation. Because there are a lot of explanations needed.
He does have a point. I guess Bruce Wayne just doesn't want that Batbodycam to go to waste. And as for that name.
Indeed, as a bit of a Richard myself, hell, a complete and utter Richard to some people, he has another point…
NIGHTWING ANNUAL #2
(W) Dan Jurgens (A) Travis Moore (CA) Dan Jurgens, Norm Rapmund
The bullet that shattered Nightwing's life was the shot fired by the KGBeast in the now-infamous BATMAN #55-and it changed the course of Dick "Ric" Grayson's career. Gone were the memories and alliances that once defined him, replaced by a near blank-slate persona.
Now go inside those early moments of Ric's new life, his strained reunion with a stranger named Bruce Wayne and an entire life turned upside down. But amid the chaos lies opportunity…not for Ric, but for an old foe who's been waiting a lifetime for a moment like this. Echoes of the past return in a story that tees up Nightwing's own Year of the Villain!In Shops: Oct 30, 2019
