Nightwing: Old Ties, Part I by Dkalban Nightwing: Old Ties, Part I by Dkalban
Nightwing is after a serial killer known as The Shrike. However, in doing so, he runs into a strange person who claims to know him from long ago. While he won't get a straight answer out of this person, will this wannabe become an ally?

Where does this take place in my timeline? Certainly pre Intro Arc, and could be used after, or in lieu of, The Return of Damian Wayne (depending on whether certain rumors will be true).

Who is Shrike? Well he's my take on an old Nightwing villain, but with a New 52 twist you'll find out in future parts ;)

As for what is going on NOW in the comics (WARNING: SPOILERS!).

It wouldn't be that much of a stretch for Batman to figure out a way to discredit Nightwing's reveal during Forever Evil . And Higgens has been planning a Mask Killer arc for Nightwing (which is referenced here). So in my head canon/crystal ball, these things happened before this tale.

And yes, the "ninja"'s little grapnel device IS inspired by Attack on Titan (Just got into it, I literally watched 16 episodes this weekend)

Hope you enjoy it and stick around for the ride!

Nightwing and related characters belong to DC Comics. Nightwing created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez

Well this sounds rather interesting, more of Ronin year one I find; if that's an appropriate terminology. Nice to see grayson is pulling his own weight and nice little nod to the old days in Bludhaven when he actually was a cop, are we to be expecting blockbuster too? One step at a time, oh this is a good story. Killers, old friends, old enemies and for once ninjas who aren't linked to the Al Ghuls, can't wait to see more.

In a way, lol. Depending certain rumors are true (or not), my idea for The Return of Damian Wayne might not be needed. So I thought, "What if there is another way to plant seeds"; and this one came up XD. Plus I just watched a lot of Attack On Titan and I wanted to write a piece involving a device similar to their grapnel system.

Blockbuster, no. As I'm writing in quasi N52 continuity (and I'm SERIOUSLY hoping that Dick goes back to his old self once the fallout after Forever Evil is fixed), Blockbuster is still really dumb at this point XD. But there is an old enemy (N52 wise) combined with an old (post Crisis, pre N52) enemy ;)

Well I like the idea of a back up continuity if one is not needed, very wise of you. I look forward to reading the rest
