Confirmed: Nightwing’s End

Nightwing #30 was confirmed as the final issue of the series today in DC’s April Solicitations. Speculation has run rampant that the one-time Dark Knight (2 times, actually) and former boy wonder would not survive DC’s mega crossover event, Forever Evil.
Over the last week, Kyle Higgins, the writer responsible for relaunching the title in the New 52 era revealed that he was walking away from the title with issue #29. This, with today’s news, is a grim omen of the fate of one of comic-dom’s oldest and most beloved characters (2015 would be the character’s 75th anniversary).
Can Batman survive the loss of two sons (Batman lost his son, Damian, last year)? Is this truly the end of Dick Grayson? As we draw closer to April, hopefully more light will be shed on his outcome.

Carlos Cabaleiro illustrator+designer+storyteller I grew up just outside of New York. The eldest of three talented siblings; fascinated by my imagination and superheroes. Relocated to Florida and attended Miami International School of Art and Design. Worked as a freelance graphic designer to pay the bills. Somewhere along the way, I ended up taking a detour and now I'm back to making a living from my talent. Back and better than ever, I'm making my way in the world armed with my imagination, skill, talent, determination and the love and support of my fiancee, Kristina, and my family and friends. I now reside in Central Florida and share my studio with my sidekick, Grayson the dog wonder (he doesn't draw but he likes to keep me company). I am influenced by Bruce Timm, Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez, Michael Golden, Egon Schiele, Leonardo D'vinci, Alex Ross, Wally Wood, Carl Banks and Don Newton. I focus primarily on illustration dealing with all things fandom, with a strong focus on sequential storytelling (storyboards, comics). I've worked for clients such as Ocean Drive magazine, Bacardi advertising and High Impact Comics. A HUGE Batman fan. I get excited for DC Comics, anything by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini, James Robinson, FX's Justified and really cool action figures. I love to read and mostly lean towards fantasy or classics. Some favorites are: Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher, Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, anything by Edgar Allan Poe, Raylan Givens short stories by Elmore Leonard and my all-time favorite, Dracula by Bram Stoker.
