Nightwing Reading Order

Dick Grayson, the first Robin, later became a powerful superhero in his own right. In many ways, he’s all but a step up on Batman himself.

What’s on this Nightwing Reading Order?

Nightwing is a lot like his trainer, Batman. He was the first Robin but later struck out on his own as Nightwing. In some ways, he’s actually superior to Batman, as he has a lot of the same strengths, but a bit more mental stability.

This timeline attempts to list all of the major DC stories that involve Nightwing and place them in chronological order. While it might not contain every single story with the character, it does look at the primary comics.

Where to Start?

You can start anywhere you like on this timeline. You can start with the classic stuff, or move on to the more recent comics. When you see the Volumes begin to start over with number 1, that’s often a good place to start.

As always, if you like this timeline, you might enjoy some of our others, including our massive collection of DC timelines in our DC Comics Hub. And if you see something that needs to be added or changed, be sure to let us know over on our contact page. We love to hear all your feedback! In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this Nightwing Reading Order.
