Nightwing #80 Preview Reveals a Robin Reunion

DC Comics presents a preview of May’s Nightwing #80, which sees Dick Grayson and Tim Drake team up for a Robin reunion.

Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo’s run on Nightwing continues this May with issue #80. DC Comics has now revealed an official preview for the issue, which sees Tim Drake venture to Dick Grayson’s stomping ground of Blüdhaven for something of a Robin reunion.

Set to hit comic shops on May 18, Nightwing #80 marks part three of Taylor and Redondo’s “Leaping into the Light” story arc. The issue introduces Heartless, “a new villain [who] stalks the back alleys of Blüdhaven, removing the hearts of the city’s most vulnerable.” Heartless isn’t the only new face in Blüdhaven, of course, with Robin/Tim Drake showing up and subsequently joining forces with Dick Grayson/Nightwing — though DC poses the question of what exactly Tim is doing there in the first place.

  • Dick Grayson’s always had a big heart. From protecting those persecuted by bullies in his youth, to combating evil alongside Batman as Robin, to pledging his newly inherited wealth to enriching Blüdhaven as Nightwing—his kindness and generosity have always guided his life. But now a new villain stalks the back alleys of Blüdhaven, removing the hearts of the city’s most vulnerable. Who is this terrifying new menace named Heartless, and will he be able to resist plucking out the biggest heart in all of Blüdhaven? Read this (literally) heart-wrenching issue to find out!

Suicide Squad‘s Taylor and Redondo began their run on Nightwing back in March with issue #78, which is getting a second printing after selling out. DC now confirms that Nightwing #79 — which released on April 20 — has sold out as well, and will also be going back to print. The second printing of Nightwing #78 arrives on April 27, followed by the second printing of Nightwing #79 on May 25. Both will feature new covers by Redondo, which can be seen below.

Moreover, DC has shared the official covers for Nightwing #81, which goes on sale June 15, and Nightwing #82, which arrives in July. Both issues feature main covers by Redondo. Nightwing #81 also features a variant cover by Rafael Grassetti, while issue #82 features a variant by Jamal Campbell.
