DC have announced, I’m fairly certain today, that both Nightwing and Batgirl will tie in to the current Batman storyline Zero Year. Revisiting a year in the early development of Batman, Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s 12-part storyline will rope in both Barbara Gordon and Dick Grayson this November.


These tie-ins will take place in the November issues of their respective solo series. Batgirl will bring a one-off creative team to take over the book for an issue, with Marguerite Bennett writing a story drawn by Fernando Pasarin and inker Jonathan Glapion. DC announced the story over on their own website, accompanied by the image above and this description:

Around fifteen or sixteen-years-old at the time of her tie-in issue, Barbara Gordon is forced to protect her brother and homestead in anticipation of the upcoming storm. It’s here that she’ll not only be forced to evaluate what “home” really means to her, but where she’ll realize for the first time that she has the potential to be a hero in her own right.

In an interview over on Newsarama, Kyle Higgins says that Nightwing’s tie-in issue, drawn by artist Will Conrad, will take place around a year before Dick Grayson’s family have their tragic accident, and will team them all up for “just a fun adventure story”. Head over to Newsarama if you want to find out more on his plans with the character.


  1. Here’s the list of the titles that will tie in to Zero Year in November:

    Action Comics
    Green Arrow
    Green Lantern Corps
    Detective Comics
    Birds of prey

    This was announced by DC during their retailers tour a few weeks ago.

  2. I got in a bit after Zero Hour, and I don’t remember the details much, but I guess this is the clean up and clarifacation of this reboot like that was.

    Of course, to be bluntly honest, I gave up on DC with this reboot. Most of Snyder’s stories and a few others are doing good stuff, but I really dislike the company as a whole and its management.
