Read full description of the books:
The second half of this collection did absolutely nothing for me. I couldn't connect to the plot, the characters, or Roy's interest in it (outside of him just being a hero). I found the whole thing to be a little hard to follow but, more than that, a lot of it didn't make sense? The costume changes were ridiculous. Sure, I've always questioned how practical it is for them to always be able to sneak off to an alley to change but in this story, there's a moment when Dick and Roy are in plain clothes in a car that gets run into and they come out of the car in costume 2 seconds later? On top of that, I found this arc to be boring. It's such a shame because the first story was truly wonderful.
I love Roy and Dick's chemistry. I love that Roy is a lot more secretive than Dick and more prone to think the ends justify the means. Here, he lied to Dick to get his assistance in getting Lian back from Cheshire. I'm still not 100% sure why he did because I feel certain he should have figured Dick would help him if he just asked? But anyway, he lied and it tore him apart to do so. I liked this story of him trying to be with his daughter again. I liked that Cheshire was an interesting antagonist. I liked Roy's partnership with Dick.
I really loved the intro that went over Dick's history once more. We got some truly great narration where Dick talks about how he's different from Bruce.
"His parents' murder went unavenged for years! And his hatred for criminals just kept growing... until he finally turned some of that hatred on himself. He couldn't save his parents as a boy -- although he'd saved so many others since -- and he couldn't find their killer. I sometimes think he feels responsible for their deaths -- as if he were the one who killed them. So you see, for all the similarities between us -- I didn't turn out a thing like him. He kept me from turning out like him... he freed me from his obsession."
The beginning with Nightwing's narration is really great. But, as I mentioned above, the story following this one was just a bummer. The art also changed and I wasn't super fond of what we got later on. The first arc drew Dick and Roy a lot more expressively. Particularly, their eyes.
So, it's a tentative recommend. Definitely read the first arc but skip the second.
