    KGBeast is like Kamen Rider Thouser. Everyone needs a turn beating the tar out of him .

    I fully agree with you. It is creatively bankrupt. And a filler too. I mean, NW vs KGBeast will wrap up in #76. A significant portion of #75 will be about the Titans, then there will be some Bea drama and maybe some extra drama in #76 given the #77 solicitations, so I'm not sure if we'll even see a lot of KGBeast?

    Just hang on a little longer, guys. Dick is back, he's supposedly running the show in Gotham for Future State, and then God willing, we will have a fresh start in March. We can get there.

    I do think there might be light at the end of the tunnel. We'll have to see who is on the book in March.

    But I'm not even mad about everyone going after the Beast. The Central City Rogues knew better than to seriously injury a Flash for this exact reason; you cross a line with one hero and *everyone* goes after you.

    It just kinda makes me laugh to think of the KGBeast getting beat up by someone, then a week or two later leaving the hospital and there's another Bat waiting to send him back in....and then again.....hell this could be a new crime-fighting methodology; bury the villain in medical bills so steep they have to leave the country and go into hiding.

    Honestly I'm glad Dick isn't taking over for this event. Dick shouldn't be a relief Batman when Batman has lots of experienced allies in Gotham already. Gimmicks/Stories like that contribute to him being treated like a sidekick

    Morrison's Batman and Robin was an exception since that was a prolonged stint.
    It just doesn't seem like there's enough justification if the city, and presumably the heroes, think that Bruce is dead. If he doesn't have to be Batman to protect Gotham in Bruce's absence why introduce another Batman?

    I feel like Bludhaven has run its course, DC doesn't seem to give a crud about it.
    Does it need doing?
    Yes.
    Then it will be done.

    The preview is just so boring. It reminds me why I'm fed up with DC Comics at this point. As fans we're in this constant state of "waiting" to move on from one status quo. Then you wait two years and THEN you have to wait for "transition period" to be concluded for a year or so. After that a new event happens and you have to wait for that phase to pass too. Quite frankly, I'm too old for that now, I want my wasted years to be given back.

    In future state dick should be in his mid to late 30s right? Nightwing should have at least a night boy or night girl sidekick I hope.

    Show that the nightwing "mythos" has grown in the last 10 years.

    Ya, no respect for their readers time or money. The goal is to try and desperately milk what they can, rather then provide a satisfying product. I’m pretty confident they know the product is poor here too even, and has been. This book especially represents the worst of comics and this tired practice.

    Nightwing #75 is spoilers:
    boring, imo. None of the character beats were entirely right or fleshed out. Sure, Donna and Garth coming was nice, but they didn't get much to say. Barbara and Dick idk, were there I guess. Bruce was being Bruce and Bea was fine? Tis fake narrative of I cannot be Nightwing, but then immediately being Nightwing pulls it all down. Plus it's before BM #100 but Dick has the issue and ahhhhh, continuity! KGBeast is kinda bland, dunno how other arcs handled him? Makes no sense that he takes Bea hostage. Not sure what to think of the Alfred narration, especially because Dick morns Alfred but doesn't even say a word about Damian. Won't be buying the next issue that's for sure.
    end of spoilers

    Justice League #55 spoilers:
    had a few good moments again and was pretty solid. Still enjoying it and Dick's character design is slowly becoming one of my favourites. It just has sth.
    end of spoilers

    I really love how even Dick Grayson is tired of Nightwing fanboyisms. if Bea dies though, i think there goes any good will I've slowly built for Dick Grayson.

    Why should the good will towards Dick be tied to a character intrinsically connected to one of the worst periods of his publication?

    It's not like she's been part of anything good.

    So #75, oh boy where to start. I guess if you don’t much like Nightwing this would be the issue for you. From top to bottom this is just a poorly written comic. One that seems to confused about its objective. Despite the cover Nightwing barely appears, and really for all intents and purposes this is just Ric with Dicks memories. He still wants to dress like Ric, he bitches like Ric, he still wants to date Ric’s girl, and prettying much just wants to reject his old self. It doesn’t make any sense, and seems to fight against the very purpose of bringing Dick back. Leaving us to just ask, as with Ric, who is this for. Potential readers who would be excited Nightwing is back, only for him to bitch about being back and try to cling to the shit that has been driving readers away. Its nonsensical. It’s why as long as Jurgens is on this book there was never any point to bringing Dick back. He doesn’t get it, he is never going to get its, and at this point he is just taking shit out on the very audience they are trying to lure back. Doing shit like taking shots at Nightwing with not being part of the JL, despite currently starring in the JL. Cause I don’t know if I said this but this guy is so out of touch it’s ridiculous.

    Oh and as to the art. Moore basically just does the preview and a few pages in the middle, as usual, and the it’s back to the generic stuff to do all the rest. It’s such a trap. The Titans too was just a fan service trap as they served no actual purpose.
