13 NIGHTWING COVERS to Make You Feel Good

Just for fun — and a birthday…

It’s been a while since I’ve done a 13 COVERS TO MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD post. But on a personal level, I have a really good reason to do one today: It’s my son Sam’s 21st birthday.

And I can’t think of a more fitting hero to spotlight than Nightwing. Because while Sam may not be my sidekick anymore, he is my aide de camp, my cherished ally and my loving pride.

So here are 13 NIGHTWING COVERS TO MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD (with a couple grown-up Robins thrown in because, deep down, a part of Sam will always be the Boy Wonder to me).

Happy birthday, my man. You done good.

  1. Loved the first Nightwing costume. And those 2 Earth 2 costumes are my other favorites. As a collector I never understand why no one ever produces those looks in 3D form. I’ve always wanted a figure or statue of that Bat suit hybrid. I’ve only ever seen it as a fan made custom figure.
