Benjamin Percy and Christopher Mooneyham Swing in to Nightwing

A high-octane, adrenaline-fueled mystery and adventure is what writer Benjamin Percy says we can expect when he takes over the writing duties for Nightwing. After making his DC debut with Detective Comics, Percy then jumped into Green Arrow, and has spent the last two years “happily inhabiting the disturbed mind of Damian Wayne for Teen Titans.” Joining Percy in May will be artist Christopher Mooneyham.

Percy’s Nightwing, beginning with issue #44 on May 2, launches with a big, bold, game-changing storyline, “The Bleeding Edge,” that will lay the groundwork for a centrally important threat to the DCU.

In this arc, change is on the horizon when a new technologist sets his sights on Blüdhaven, creating a holographic, interconnected city where everyone is an individual and part of a larger network. It’s the internet made physical. Gentrification on gigabyte-laced steroids. But when this new utopia encroaches on his turf, Nightwing starts to uncover a sinister plot based not on revenge…but on a reckoning.

Nightwing #44 arrives in stores May 2nd. Check out this first-look at Declan Shalvey’s cover for the issue. Fans can also expect variant covers by Yasmine Putri.
