    1. (B+) 77% | GoodNotes: Plot proficient but charm deficient, it lacks the patina of idiosyncrasy that enlivens characters and details personality.

    2. NIghtwing joins the circus looking for some sort of closure about his mom and dad getting blown up and instead is subjected to this freak show of a storyline. Nightwing (formerly, Robin, the Boy Wonder) is supposed to be the light-hearted, quippy member of the Bats family, but even he’s worn down by this loose tie-in to the “Owls” storyline from the Batman titles.Why do a majority of DC’s New 52 titles get plotted with storylines that would seem quaint and dated back in 1990? One reason: [...]

    3. Traps and Trapezes didn't blow me away, but it is definitely a really solid story.This is not a Nightwing origin story, even though this is part of the re-boot. No, it's just Dick going back to being Nightwing after his stint as Batman, which is interesting enough in it's own right.Halys circus comes back to Gotham, and with it comes a forgotten part of Grayson's past.Well, we all know the poor guy can't resist a redhead.It all ties into Batman, Vol. 1: The Court of Owls. So if you haven't read [...]

    4. Okay, so I’d read Batman, Vol. 1: The Court of Owls before this, which means I had some idea of where the story was headed. Nightwing is by far one of the better New 52 titles; It’s right up there with Aquaman, Vol. 1: The Trench.First of all, the Nightwing story isn’t a reboot. There is mention of his tenure as Batman, and how it changed (matured) him; he’s in terrific crime-fighting shape here. Which brings me to Saiko: the fighting scenes in here are nothing short of spectacular. Much [...]

    5. written by Kyle Higgins & art by Eddy BarrowsOf all the characters -- villains and heroes -- within Batman's sphere of influence, it is Dick Grayson, specifically Dick Grayson as Nightwing, who is the most important to our reading of Batman himself.Many, if not most, would argue that the pride of this place goes to Joker. He is often seen as Batman's opposite: the dark to Batman's light, the crazy to batman's sane, the chaos to Batman's order. But that's not the case, as many great comic boo [...]

    6. Dick Grayson sheds Batman's cowl and slips back into the cape-less, newly re-coloured Nightwing outfit. Dick's old stomping ground, Haly's Circus, is back in town and the past comes crowding back as familiar faces bring haunted memories of the night he lost his parents - The Flying Graysons - in an acrobatic disaster. But mystery shrouds everything as a vicious figure with claws - talons? - is hunting Nightwing, enigmatically labelling Grayson "Gotham's fiercest killer". And Dick's about to find [...]

    7. Traps And Trapezes sees Dick Grayson confronting his past as Haly's Circus returns to Gotham City, bringing murder and mystery with it. Spanning across seven chapters the plot has plenty of time to build, although it's definitely one issue too many. After battling an assassin and reuniting with old friends, chapter five features the summoning of a rhyming demon, of all things. Even Nightwing himself comments that it's "SO out of (his) wheelhouse it's not even funny".This was likely due to writer [...]

    8. I never read much Nightwing in the past, so I had essentially no baggage going into the New 52 version. Of course, being a Bat book, very little, if anything, was changed. I wish Higgins had spent maybe a few more pages dealing with Grayson's adjustment from Batman back to Nightwing. Is it a demotion? Dick doesn't seem to think so, and I get his point. At this point, being Batman would essentially require doing a fairly convincing Bruce-as-Batman impression on top of fighting crime, and as Night [...]

    9. Ergh. This is a good jumping-on point for those of us who don't know Nightwing, in that it gets into Dick Grayson's origin story and gives him a new start by reconnecting him with his childhood circus family. I like the way the series ties into other Bat-titles that I like much better (Nightwing's costume evokes Batwoman's, and the story here ties closely to the Court of Owls stuff going on in Batman's series), but I don't really understand why DC needs to put out so many Bat-books, and based on [...]

    10. Pretty good start but the whole old friend turned villain thing has been done to death in my opinion. That said I did like how they tied it all together with Snyder's court of owls arc (which I read a lifetime ago so the details are a bit fuzzy).

    11. First, I have something to say to get it out of my system.Dick talks too damn much. I know it's a diversion, but my goodness! In my head, he sounds just like he does in Under the Red Hood (as voiced by Neil Patrick Harris), and it’s just nonstop, aggravating chatter in my head. It’s somewhat funny in a way that I say that, though. I remember thinking the exact same thing about him during the Batman R.I.P. story. On the next couple of pages in that comic, Dick says that he knows he talks too [...]

    12. Probably more like 3.5 stars, though I'm interested enough to want to read Vol. 2.Dick Grayson runs away and (re)joins the circus . . .Well, not exactly like that, but we get to experience Grayson a.k.a. Nightwing temporarily leaving his Gotham beat and traveling to a few different southern locales (via circus train) for his adventures. And like a train, the book is a little slow-moving at first but eventually picks up speed as he pursues a mysterious assassin.

    13. This is a pleasant surprise. I keep discovering small hidden pockets of storytelling talent buried under the dung heap that is the New 52. Nightwing is a reasonably fun book with a too-optimistic-for-his-own-good lead character, and a backstory that just seems to flow together like it wasn't just shat out between lunch and a martini.I really enjoy how natural and not terribly forced the circus backstory feels, that this is deeply convinced these are the most important details to learn about Dick [...]

    14. Really enjoyed this. Whilst the plot isn't anything too special, and there are a few issues mid-arc that feel a little filler-ish, Higgins makes Nightwing an enjoyable protagonist, and his narration keeps the book flowing nicely. I also liked the addition of Batgirl for an issue, and everything comes to a head nicely. The art is also excellent, even with two or three fill-in artists to keep things on target. Eagerly awaiting volume 2.

    15. I know a lot of N52 books are a toss up for some fans but this series is a great introduction to Dick Grayson. It's not the overall best series for Dick but it goes over his origin and how he came to work with Batman. Dick's pretty well characterized and it features enough action and excitement to keep my attention. I recommend it to anyone that wants an easy introduction to Nightwing.

    16. Kyle Higgins did a great job writing nightwing.But i wish it focused more on nightwing than his love life.Basically this volume is the beginning of the court of owls.But i wish they included more members of the batfam, would've been more interesting.I hope in the next volume they focus more on the hero than the guy under the mask.Other than these small flaws it was a great solid story.

    17. Nightwing, Vol. 1: Traps and Trapezes records the adventures of Dick Grayson in the post-Flashpoint New 52 DC universe. We don't learn everything about Dick in this volume, but we do get snippets here and there of the overall changes between his life pre- and post-Flashpoint. The main purpose of the story in this volume, however, was to tie the series in with the other “Batfamily” titles, especially in terms of Barbara Gordon's recovery from her injuries and the “Court of Owls” story.As [...]

    18. For me, the treatment of Dick Grayson was going to be the litmus test for the New 52. If there is one thing I love as much as the LSH, it is Nightwing.With the New 52 reboot, writer, Kyle Higgins, has managed to retain most of what fans liked about Dick Grayson in the previous DCU continuity. He is snarky, sarcastic, smart-assed and impertinent; however, as Higgins successfully showcases, all of those traits are a superficial cover-up for Grayson's shortcomings and ineptitudes.In "Traps and Trap [...]

    19. If this was my first encounter with Nightwing/Dick Grayson I think I still would've given it 3 stars.However, it isn't. Yes, the NEW 52 changed the DC Universe, and I'm very surprised how normal Dick Grayson is now. One of the villans states to Nightwing "You're only supposed to be the fiercest killer. Nobody said anything about the greatest detective." And it is so true. This Nightwing has so much more action than crime solving on the page. I haven't read all the other NEW 52 titles (I remain a [...]

    20. I liked this one quite a bit, especially as I have not previously been that invested in Nightwing as a character. Even though this is a New 52 title, it isn't so much of a reboot as a revision of the character's back story, particularly fleshing out the former Robin's early life in the circus, particularly following the tragic deaths of his parents. The reveal of the villain is perhaps a little underwhelming as the character is underwritten and there was too little foreshadowing of his character [...]

    21. "Sopping wet, ribs on fire, a bladed guy trying to kill med it's not even Friday yet."That pretty much gives you an idea of what to expect from this comic. Nightwing traps and trapezes is FULL of ACTION and MYSTERY. Dick has to face his past as haly's circus returns to Gotham. Around this time a mysterious assassin by the name of "saiko" tries to kill dick for reasons unknown. To uncover who this man is Nightwing follows the circus searching for clues However there is much more to haly's circus [...]

    22. As someone who is still new to DC, I really enjoyed this book. There was a great, solid, witty voice to Dick Grayson that made it interesting to read. And I thought his backstory and challenges fit well with who the character. There were a few moments I thought it was kind of slow but that's what we have to sacrifice sometimes.

    23. 3,5Bon, en fait, j'avais presque lu entièrement ce comics avant le tome 1 de Batman, parce que c'était ce que préconisait un ordre de lecture trouvé sur Internet. Mais dans la toute dernière scène reprend celle de Batman donc je me suis arrêtée très vite avant de tout me spoiler, et j'étais énervée par cet ordre de lecture qui me spoilait Batman. Après avoir lu ce fameux volume 1 de Batman, au final, ce n'est pas si dramatique ce qu'on apprend dans cette toute dernière partie, et a [...]

    24. This review originally posted at The Improbable Chuck: Canucks on ComicsI have a complicated relationship with this character. On one hand he’s very charming and very easy to grow attached to. Right from the get go in this volume Kyle Higgins establishes him as a more human version of Batman. He lives in the neighbourhoods he’s trying to protect, he throws his costume on the floor etc. He’s also quite witty and determined – commendable qualities for sure.However his own again off again r [...]

    25. Reviewd first at Brunner's BookshelfYou wouldn't know that Nightwing is my second favorite hero right behind Batman, but how long it took me to get around to this book. I loved Dick Grayson stepping into the Role of Batman when Bruce disappeared. That had some of the best story lines I have read in the Batman comics, but I knew it would be temporary. Bruce Wayne is the only Batman and I was anxious to see Dick Grayson back in the Black and Blue Nightwing suit. I was a little surprised to see the [...]

    26. Maybe all the comments/complaints/jokes about Nightwing and the circus unfairly biased me, but while I read this I found myself thinking why can't writers think of anything to do with Dick but stick him back with the circus. His time as Batman was pretty awesome so this feels like a bit of a step back. Plus I miss his interactions with Damian. I don't really care about Dick's circus past other than to acknowledge it as a fine origin story to explain his skills. I don't need to know anything more [...]

    27. When I read comic books I think about action, adventure, illustration and this book had it all. I am not a big batman fan or anything but I have always liked Richard (Dick) Grayson as nightwing and I really liked this book a lot too.I always liked Dick Grayson as nightwing more than Robin. Dick just got more of a story than just to be a side kick. Kyle Higgins delivered that to us.This book is about how Dick Grayson (nightwing) thought he was happy with his life. How he thought that he understoo [...]

    28. I have always enjoyed reading about the exploits of the Bat and his family in particular. It was that sheer fondness that led me to pick up this series and start reading it. (And the fact that I have always admired Nightwing from his initial Teen Titans' days)Traps and Trapezes captures the essence of Richard Grayson and puts him in a situation where he is being pursued by an assassin who considers him to be the 'Fiercest Killer in all Gotham', while he is rediscovering his past. A past that som [...]

    29. Nothing to write home about. Traps and Trapezes isn't an origin story. It's a revisitation. After spending a year filling in as Batman during Bruce's absence, Dick Grayson returns as Nightwing and relocates to Gotham. He's immediately drawn back into the world of his childhood upon the death of Mr. Haly, owner and operator of Haly's Circus, that the Flying Graysons were once a part of. Haly had a big secret that meshes nicely with the ongoing Court of Owls storyline that begins in the New 52 Bat [...]
