That bit of dodgy writing with "This is Nightwing" could have been fixed by having Batman speak first over the radio:
"Nightwing?" "Yeah, boss, I'm here, but we've got a runner."
Maybe at a later point we also find out Oracle is on the same line or something? (No, we won't but it would clear things up)
The Nightwing art threw me for a loop. I remember the whole situation about Stephanie Brown and then changing something. I didn't follow it much and just figured we'd get a male Nightwing so when he (she) looked feminine I was disappointed they didn't bother fixing it. Then at some point I realized he's still a she.
Best moment of the issue; When Lois & Clark spend their foreplay by talking about fixing their situation and saying "but we don't want to obsess because that can be dangerous" --switch to Gotham and Batman.
Great art btw (and the Bat costume didn't bother me too much here)
I just don't like the suit. It reminds me of the Batman costumes from the toy shelves when they run out of ideas for Batman, they throw in scuba gear or in this case, weird Steel Armor. At least its not a hoodie.
The Wee Baby Sheamus.Twitter: @realjoecarfley its a bit more toned down there. A bit.
At risk of veering off on a tangent, didn't Joe Quesada say that readers didn't NEED the tie-ins in order to keep up with Civil War? I'll admit I haven't bought a single tie-in and I feel lost as all hell jumping into issue five.
