Oh, Nightwing #97, are you trying to give people flashbacks?!?  

I have been complaining about the pace of this series for quite some time now, but I still like Dick Grayson being a good guy, and Tom Taylor gives readers that in spades!  I hope that as we get closer and closer to issue #100, we finish up with Heartless or at least make him more interesting.  The guy has been hanging in the background for a year,  and I don't know if I care.  Let's see if that changes this month...

Let's get back in touch with Jace Fox, the Batman of New York, and his case in finding out who shot Anarky. Previously, we saw Jace and Renee Montoya in her Question persona go after the NYPD because of their belief that Anarky was killed by crooked cops because of his connection to a New York protestor who was also murdered, but as it turns out that other protestor was a police informant so it seems that Batman and Question's suspect doesn't make much sense. Let's jump into this issue and see if our dynamic duo can get to the bottom of this murder and if........ it actually makes sense when we get there.
