And as readers saw in Nightwing #78, there’s a new furry friend in town! This is Nightwing’s heroic three-legged puppy, “Bitewing” by fans. The furry friend actually remains nameless in the comic book and it needs a civilian name! Fans are encouraged to vote online for their favorite name—Haley, Shadow, Blue or Hope—between now and March 30 by way of a DC UNIVERSE INFINITE POLL. The option with the most votes will become her new namesake! Yes, it is a her!
And coming up in Nightwing #79, in addition to the first appearance of a new character, Heartless, Dick Grayson has inherited Alfred’s fortune, a puppy, and a whole lot of questions. Who is Mayor Zucco, and what is her relation to the man who murdered Dick’s parents? What sinister plans does Blockbuster have for Blüdhaven? What kind of dog food is best for a three-legged puppy? To answer these questions, Dick’s going to need a little help from his friends—past and present. Take a look at the first few pages of Nightwing #79, due to hit shelves on April 20.
