Kyle Higgins Teases Big Changes in Nightwing #16

Nightwing sees major changes in 2013

In an interview with DC’s The Source, “Nightwing” writer Kyle Higgins discusses how “Death Of The Family” will affect Dick Grayson.
Next week sees the release of Nightwing #15, the first issue of this series to be an official tie-in to Bat-crossover event. Issue #15 will see Dick Grayson facing The Joker, however look for the impact of “Death of the Family” to change the course of Nightwing forever in issue #16.
“I guess the only thing I can say is, it's kind of my ‘opus,’” writer Kyle Higgins described Nightwing #16. “Everything that spins out of this issue is my big, huge, epic Nightwing story that I've been planning for a long time. But it all begins in Nightwing #16.”
“The Joker is going for the jugular with all the Bat allies -- so, all of their greatest fears, all of their perceived weaknesses, these are the aspects of the characters that the Joker is targeting,” Higgins continued. “Nightwing, someone who is arguably the most outgoing, social character in the DC Universe, there are a lot of ways to get to him, whether it be through friends in Haly's circus, whether it be through potential love interests. If the Joker does know Nightwing as well as he claims to know him, that's pretty terrifying. Based on that reveal at the end of Batman #14 of the Joker knowing everything Nightwing should be quite concerned!”
Haly’s Circus will play a pivotal role in this event. Being an important part of Dick’s past and present, it ties directly to the events of issue #16. The events of that issue will also see the beginnings of an arch-villain for Nightwing, and a new direction in general for this title.

About the Author - IvCNuB4

IvCNuB4 likes to maintain an air of mystery by never publicly revealing his true name unless you are one of the four lucky Outhouse posters he has PM'd it to. A life-long Chicago native, he was introduced to comics by his older brother's vast collection of Silver Age issues. When he is not at his day job as an IT geek or making the most of Chicago's three months of incredible summer, he can found spending way too much time with his very large, very loud Italian family. You will never find him on the likes of Facebook or Twitter as he scoffs at the necessity of most forms of social media.
