Given that Taylor is the writer of both Nightwing and Superman: Son of Kal-El, a crossover between the titles was only a matter of time. It also appears that Nightwing regular artist Bruno Redondo will handle the art. The story line will start in Nightwing #89 and conclude in March’s Superman: Son of Kal-El #9.
Nightwing and Jon Kent- The New World’s Finest
Not much is known yet about the nature of the crossover. However, we can gleam some idea based on the official solicitation. From the sounds of it, Nightwing may help mentor Jon Kent as the new Superman. Given how the original Superman helped Dick Grayson discover his own heroic identity, this is a perfect inverted dynamic. Check out the solicitation and cover gallery below.
