Consider this a post-FOREVER EVIL spoiler of comic book universe altering proportions... So if you haven't been up to date with the latest happenings in DC Comics' New 52 universe, you have been properly warned.
That being said, the cat has been let out of the bag courtesy of USA Today... BIG CHANGES are happening for Richard "Dick" Grayson, and he's getting the "Secret Agent" treatment in the upcoming "Grayson" comic book series, to be done by the creative team of Tim Seeley of Revival fame and former CIA operative Tom King.
Better known by his persona as "Nightwing", Dick Grayson was the very first Robin and sidekick to Batman, before stepping out of his mentor's shadow and becoming his own man. However, he still maintained ties with the Bat-Family, and even took over as The Dark Knight for a time following Bruce Wayne's supposed death. Now it seems that Dick has to adopt a new role following the result of his identity being exposed in Forever Evil by the Crime Syndicate... And whatever happens as a result of the end of that main event storyline by DC Comics. Only time will tell for certain what follows afterwards. For more on the story, visit the source post at USA Today.
"Nightwing" ends with issue #30 when it hits on May 28, with "Grayson" to follow soon afterwards.
