    Those stripes on his calves bug the hell out of me, honestly. There's just no design justification for them; they don't share an aesthetic with anything else on the suit, it doesn't evoke any kind of "bird" or "flight" motif, or anything else I can think of that connects to Dick's character, history, or talents.

    I prefer the unbroken black (including mask), myself, with only the blue chevron (with finger strips, of course) or bird emblem. If some blue has to be on the calves, then stick with the angles used for the chevron and bird emblem (same angles), or mimic the finger strips, if those're included too.

    And I'm getting kinda hyped for the new issue too....hard to shake off the cynicism of the last few years but it does look like DC is putting some actual, legit effort in.

    Yea. I hope the writers have the freedom. Because I would love it if Dick can have other characters appear in the comics more. Not just the Batfam. I mean with Wally coming back I hope they have him Guest Star

    Total: 284 issues \ 9 Annuals \ 4 specials.
    Actually the total is 285 issues. You forgot Nightwing: Alfred's Return (1995) Nightwing_Alfred%27s_Return_Vol_1_1.jpg that led into the first Nightwing mini-series.

    I honestly don't mind the blue on Dick's calves. In the original design, they looked more like one small stripe and one big stripe. I prefer them to the streaks because it helped make them seem more like the wings of the bird on his chest wrapping around his body. There is a certain energy to that.

    Very controversial in a thread about Nightwing, but I don't want the finger stripes back. Some artists still make them work, but most often they look outdated to me. I'm a fan of the gloves.

    That said I wouldn't mind if DC experimented more with Dick's design, especially in out of continuity stories. Just no more clunky chin guards, please.

    I like the calves stripes. It's just style.

    Also, this is hot.
    By the way I like how in Bludhaven that scene is sunny twilight, but because Jimenez is drawing Gotham, he made it night and raining. It's like viewed from Batman's depressed eyelet, or in this case, The Spectre

    How fated. March 16 will be the date I find out if I still get to keep my house or not (developer in debt, unfinished certification process, long story). I could use the motivation.

    Imagine caring so much about a tiny detail on characters costume *shakes head*

    I'm really looking forward to #78 and everything in seeing online is ramping my excitement up. I'm really trying to lower my expectations and it's hard. I really hope it's good.

    "Caring" might be a strong word. Have an opinion on? Sure. Oh, Avi's got a point about a lot of artists not being able to pull off the finger strips. Kyle Rayner's old crab mask was like that too; some artists just could not figure that thing out, but the ones who did made it work really well.

    And Resting, I hope things work out right for you. Best of luck to you and your's!

    I’m very sorry to hear that, hope all ends well.

    Yeah it just looks random and garish. I could accept a blue cross section that indicates the top of his boots but his current design just looks randomly put together with those splashes on his calves.
