Tim Seeley talks a bit more about GRAYSON

  • Interviewer: What about writing 'Grayson' are you most excited about?
  • Tim Seeley: It's what I'm excited AND terrified about... the fact that Dick Grayson has such a long and storied history in superhero comics. He’s a household name. And, he's one of the best characters ever created in superhero comics... the first real sidekick with an identity all his own!
  • Interviewer: Is there anything that scares you about taking the character (Dick Grayson) in this new direction?
  • Tim Seeley: Yeah. Most everything. Because, by definition it relies on the personality and character of Dick over a costume. It's up to me, Tom, Mikel and the rest of the team to convince readers that the man is more important than the suit and the genre.
  • Interviewer: You talked about creating Grayson's "Joker or Lex Luthor" – Is this an established character or someone new? What emotion would encompass this new nemesis?
  • Tim Seeley: It's a new character. We realized he had to be someone who defined an aspect of Dick Grayson... a perfect foil in the way that Joker is the Chaos to Batman’s order. He has to be the mistrust to Dick’s faith.
  • Interviewer: In the USA Today article there is mention of 'Breaking Bad' and 'The Americans' – Will 'Grayson' be a darker character/book than before and if so how?
  • Tim Seeley: I don't think it's darker, per se... at least not in the way people tend to think of darker. There's not more gore or murder or whatever. In that way it's almost lighter actually. But, I think it's a bit more darker in its thematic issues, and its treatment of authority and trust.

  • IMHO this sounds kind of promising. Especially if they manage to draw and write what they preach - and stick close to Dick's personality as it's portrayed in the (preboot) comics.

The thing that makes me extra pissed about what DC is doing with Dick Grayson is that I think it would be an interesting book if Dick wasn’t the lead character. Not only is Tim Seeley a former CIA operative (you can’t really ask for anyone better to write a spy book), but I quite enjoyed his work on Revival

Basically, I don’t think it’s going to be a bad book, I just don’t want to see Dick go in that direction.

Dick Grayson Not Dying; Gets New Comic in July

novangla:

dcwomenkickingass:

For months readers have worried that Dick Grayson might be the latest Robin to die in comics. The signs were certainly there. He was tortured and had his identity revealed in Forever Evil. And then they cancelled his comic, Nightwing. 

But rest assure Dick lovers, Mr. Grayson is staying in comics

image

According to USA Today, he is getting a new job - spy with the CIA like organization Spyral  and a new costume:

At the very least, he is getting a wardrobe makeover, courtesy of Grayson artist Mikel Janin: Gone is Grayson’s mask, and his new outfit reflects the blue-and-black color scheme of his Nightwing togs and features a “G” on his chest, reminiscent of the old “R” from his Robin days.

Tim Seeley and Tom King are joining Janin on the book.

Are you excited?

Spyral is stupid and he looks too grimdark for Dick but I don’t even care

okay wait I do care is that a gun?

I mean I know he packed one as Officer Grayson and he’s not Bruce - his parents were victims of mafia sabotage, not gun violence - but having him pointing one at the viewer for the main promo image feels off

here’s hoping the comic does him justice

Here’s why I’m angry and upset at Dick Grayson becoming a spy and DC erasing the Nightwing persona (and why you should be too).

(Keep in mind, I’m not the most knowledgeable about Dick Grayson, so if I get a few details wrong, feel free to let me know).

We’ve all seen Black Widow kick major ass as a spy in The Avengers and the recent Captain America: The Winter Soldier. She’s a good spy because her morals are ambiguous. She follows orders without necessarily following a certain moral code, and that works really great for her. She does the tough and questionable job that morally righteous man would cringe at, someone like, idk, Dick Grayson.

(To me), Dick represents hope. He’s fun and willing to save kittens from trees. He makes time for his team, sings “Here comes the sun” when hiding from explosions, talks to his brother Tim about losing Connor, and is Donna’s best friend. Yes, he’s made questionable choices, but he’s grown from that. He has a certain moral code that follows to a T, and you can even see that when he becomes Batman! He puts more trust and faith in people that Bruce ever did and that really spoke volume to me. Hell, he idolizes Superman for fuck’s sake! He even becomes a cop as a day job so he can help people during the day, and when he realizes how corrupt the police station, he fights it. And now, they have him carrying a gun, and following orders of a higher power? I just don’t buy it.

Dick would never, never blindly follow order if it meant innocents would get hurt. He would never risk the lives of a few for the lives of the many because he would try his hardest to save them all. 

Dick fights for injustice at all level, from the kitties in a tree, to a woman being brutalized in the streets, to high gangs and powerful gangs. 

That’s what makes him Dick Grayson, that’s what makes him Nightwing.

I was going to write a long post about why I think this new development is the dumbest thing ever, but you pretty much said everything I wanted to say.
