We find out how William became a Talon and his marriage was rejected but he had her lover pregnant and he stole the baby which will keep the Gray legacy.

In the present William aka the Talon fights with Nightwing and forces him to embrace the court but Nightwing manages to hurt him with nitrogen cold and carries him off.

A nice little two part story of the background of the Talon. Now I can go back to Batman and start reading.

376) Nightwing #8: Bloodlines

Read 3/5/13

This is what I have been waiting on. To read this Night of the Owls chapter and it was worth it. Two stories go parallel. One of a young boy who was trained in Haly’s circus during early 1920s and other of Nightwing getting the call from Alfred to protect the Mayor from the Talon attack.

Here’s the twist. The boy who got trained to become a Talon is the guy who is here to kill Nightwing. Really worth a read right till the end. 7 outta 10.

They all attend Haly’s funereal and Nightwing meets up with his old buddy Zane who, he has been told, hires assassins and stuff. Zane makes Dick hallucinate his mum and dad and he feels guilty.
