While most of what we’ve gotten out of DC Comics at this point with their relaunch is cover art and creative teams, the promo item for the new Nightwing series by Kyle Higgins with art duties handled by fan-favorite Eddy Barrows gives us a bit more with an actual plot summary of what Dick Grayson will be confronting in his opening issue as it ties back to his past. The Nightwing book should be the last part of the Batman family of books to be announced today, unless they have a little extra Gotham based love for us with a gritty, urban realistic series?
Plot summary: After a tenure as the Batman of Gotham, Dick Grayson resumes his mantle as Nightwing! As Dick embraces his identity, Haley’s Circus, the big top where he once performed with his family, returns to Gotham – bringing with it a history of murder, mystery and superhuman evil. Nightwing must confront friends and enemies from his past as he searches for the source of an even greater evil.
