“Despite, awkwardly, killing him twice (in Injustice and DCeased), I’m a huge Nightwing fan. And I couldn’t be more excited to take on a hero I’ve always considered a DC A-lister. Our series is about showing that. It’s about putting Dick Grayson back on that pedestal where he belongs,” Taylor said in a statement. “It’s also about taking everything Bruno and I love about Nightwing and testing him in a completely new way. Exploring how Dick reacts when faced with impossible odds, and with a life-changing opportunity which comes his way in our very first issue.”
The two creators start their run with Rightwing No. 78, released digitally and in comic book stores March 16, part of DC’s stealth relaunch of its superhero publishing line that month.
