MAN ON A NEW WING

Kaplan Putting Ric Through His Paces As He Encounters Joker's Daughter

Nightwing #57 had the Jokerís Daughter return in an issue that was co-written by Zack Kaplan. Kaplan is writing the next few issues with Scott Lobdell, who was co-writing the title with Fabian Nicieza. Lobdell and Niceieza were replacing the fired Ben Percy and their first arc had Dick Grayson after recovering from being shot in the head and is now suffering memory loss while using the name Ric. Ric was trying to make a new life but in #56 he was drawn into helping a group of vigilantes who were trying to fight Scarecrow. He figured out how to beat them and is now helping this team calling itself Nightwings. #57 and 58 will show Ric and his team have to deal with the Jokerís Daughter. Kaplan has worked on the Image title Eclipse and will work on Nightwing until Dan Jurgens takes over Nightwing in April. Kaplan knew of Nightwing but didnít fully understand him until he researched the character who has never found a home and always finds himself dragged from one situation to another. Kaplan thinks Ric will always want to help people in trouble and Dick Grayson is still there in the fog of his memory. The irony that he is leading a team of people inspired by him but donít know that he is the original Nightwing will be a part of the two issue arc. And in dealing with the Jokerís Daughter we will see that she may be crazy but her reasons for being in Bludhaven are noble.
