NIGHTWING WILL BE ENDING! THE FATE OF NIGHTWING HAS BEEN DECIDED! I have a petition on my web site. If you do not what the Nightwing series to die, PLEASE Sign my petition!
I have a letter to post:
Nightwing No More
It’s a weird feeling to leave the book after almost three years, and even though I would love nothing more than to write Dick Grayson for another fifty or sixty issues, it’s time to move on. (In that spirit, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention BATMAN BEYOND 2.0 and C.O.W.L…two of the books I am currently working on, which are also-- both in their own way-- helping to curb the Grayson withdrawal :-)
I’ve talked many times about my love for Nightwing. He was the hero I grew up with, the book that got me collecting, and the inspiration for my first film. For all those reasons, I had a lot of reservations about launching his New 52 series. What if I wasn’t good enough? What if DC wouldn’t let me tell the stories I wanted? What if people hated it? What if I hated it?
As much pressure as I felt about doing DG justice, the truth is there’s very little I ever could have done to break him. He’s an amazing character who’s been around for almost seventy five years and will still be around long after I’m gone. Instead of thinking about what I’ve been able to do for DG, I’ve found it much better to think about what DG has been able to do for me. In that regard, I’ll only ever be able to look at my time on Nightwing and smile. Why?
Because Dick Grayson made me a better writer.
So, with that, I want to thank Mike Marts for championing me, Scott Snyder for believing in me, Jen Aprahamian, Ryan Parrott, Alec Siegel, Michael Nie, James Tynion, Brian Buccellato, and Brad Bode for supporting me, Eddy Barrows, Rod Reis, Trevor McCarthy, Geraldo Borges, Andres Guinaldo, Juan Jose Ryp, Brett Booth, Will Conrad, Jason Masters, and Russell Dauterman for inspiring me, and finally-- to every single Dick Grayson fan out there who bought the book and gave me the chance to live out a dream… issues 28 and 29 are for you. You guys are amazing and I owe you everything.
I am in the process of writing a story based on a RP that a fellow Batfan and I have been doing. It is a slow process since I am converting the RP into the story. My story however will take a different turn from the RP once the RP sections are rewritten. We shall see what happens. And I hope you will enjoy it once I begin posting.
I just saw something FANTASTIC. I fell in love with the show Arrow. And last Season they had a nod to DC Coomics (though the show is a complete nod) with a sign in a window I am certain not everyone got. The Bludhaven Apt. Anyway, there is a BIG appearance that will happen this season and it's not what you might be thinking. IT"S NIGHTWING! Check it out! Remember to place the in the URL address!

I received this from a guest and I just had to post it here:
I Love the way your last line really highlights the purpose of the bat family,
This was in response to my story Partners, Sons, and Wards. I wish I could respond to that guest and tell them, their words blew me away. Here is an explanation that I felt the story was telling me. The story actually came on the heals of reading the story about Jason and the fact that the Joker had tried to kill him by putting acid in his red helmet. Bruce was taking care of him after Damian's death and the story that I wrote followed on the heals of it. Dick, having been Damian's guardian while Bruce was stuck in the past in many ways reflected the relationship of Bruce and Dick's relationship of guardian and ward. Dick was acting as Damian's guardian, not only because he felt obligated to return the favor, I am certain he felt it was the right thing yo do, to help Damian through the grief of that loss. In order for Damian to get over that grief, having him become Robin made sense to channel that grief into something positive. And with Damian's death, Dick would feel the loss far more than any of the others because of that relationship. Damian became HIS ward and partner. He probably even started to see Damian as a son even though they were brothers though not of blood. Just like Bruce felt the failure over Jason's loss, Dick would feel like he failed Bruce for Damian's loss. And just like Bruce, he went to the beginning, to his parents graves because it was so much of a reminder of his own loss as well. It was fitting that Bruce be the one to help him through that shared pain.
