During the day Dick Grayson is a member of Blüdhaven's hardworking but besieged police force. At night he patrols the city's streets and dark alleys as the vigilante superhero called Nightwing.
His dedication to law and order is beyond reproach. But after a deadly altercation with The Joker during the villain's most recent rampage of terror, Grayson unexpectedly experiences a jolt of existential ennui. What does it mean to be a hero, he wonders? Things get even more complicated when Batman, Grayson's crime-fighting mentor, is charged with murder. Hopefully, with a little help from friends like the Flash, Blue Beetle and the rest of his Bat-Family, Nightwing can figure it out.
Nightwing Vol. 8: Lethal Force features the creative talents of Chuck Dixon (Robin, Robin: Year One) and Trevor McCarthy (Nightwing: The New Order) and collects Nightwing #61-70.
