DC Comics announced today that the blue stripes are back! As seen on Bruno Redondo’s main and variant covers for the first issue of Nightwing in 2022, Nightwing gets an updated suit starting with Nightwing #88! Bruno just shared a teaser for fans saying “Those Things Are Back!” to call out the new blue stripes running all the way down to Nightwing’s fingertips.
In this issue, after the distressing events of rescuing Haley from getting dognapped by bad guys (in the one-continuous-image Nightwing #87 coming to comic shops on December 21), Nightwing discovers there are way more hits on Dick Grayson than he realized, thanks to going public about his fortune. He needs to find a clever way to be Dick Grayson and Nightwing at the same time.
Meanwhile, Heartless tries to buy power away from Blockbuster in order to take control of Blüdhaven, and both of these big bads have Nightwing in their crosshairs.
