Today The Beat has an exclusive cover reveal for Nightwing #80, which introduces Heartless, the newest foe for Dick Grayson to face.

From the new regular series creative team of writer Tom Taylor and artist Bruno Redondo, the book is due out May 18, marking the third issue in the new team’s run, which kicks off in March with the start of the new linewide DC Comics branding for Infinite Frontier. Taylor and Redondo are notably a rare creative team that is taking over the title after not doing the Nightwing Future State series, which maybe means their plans are a bit unpredictable.

Anyway! Enough chatter. You came here for exclusive cover revealing, and you can check out said cover below by Redondo, along with a variant by Jamal Campbell (Far Sector, Naomi) after the solicit info…enjoy!


Dick Grayson’s always had a big heart. From protecting those persecuted by bullies in his youth, to combating evil alongside Batman as Robin, to pledging his newly inherited wealth to enriching Blüdhaven as Nightwing—his kindness and generosity have always guided his life. But now a new villain stalks the back alleys of Blüdhaven, removing the hearts of the city’s most vulnerable. Who is this terrifying new menace named Heartless, and will he be able to resist plucking out the biggest heart in all of Blüdhaven? Read this (literally) heart-wrenching issue to find out!
