Nightwing’s New “Partner” Bitewing Gets His First Costume On An Adorable Blanket
While Nightwing #91 offers fans Dick Grayson/Wally West content, its variant cover provides the series favorite with new gear.
While night wing promises a fan-favorite team, one of its cover variations gives readers an adorable duo.
Early in writer Tom Taylor and artist Bruno Redondo’s run on the series, Dick Grayson saved a three-legged puppy from being attacked by some of Blüdhaven’s cruelest citizens. Given the codename “Bitewing”, like Dick, fans grew attached to the dog by having the option to choose his name, with Haley being the winning choice. Created by Serg Acuña, a variant cover for night wing #91 gives readers another glimpse of what Haley might look like if she started fighting crime alongside her loving owner.

- Trying to save a city that’s even further beyond saving than Gotham is no small task, and even someone like Nightwing needs a day off to relax with his best friend and recharge. , but when your best friend is Wally West, aka the Flash, a “reload” might not be so relaxing!
Because night wing #78 was so popular with fans that it was sent back for two more prints, with Riley Rossmo’s cover on its third featuring Haley in a Nightwing-like costume, complete with wings on the collar. Although the new variant cover gives the doggo her own domino mask, she has yet to be dressed in the series, even after having to be saved by Dick once again. It was shown in night wing #87, which featured continuous page art that spanned the entire issue for a sweeping story of Haley’s rescue.
Despite Haley’s lack of crime fighting, Nightwing will be joined by another friend in the next issue: Wally West aka the Flash. After being teased by Taylor on social media, it was revealed that the two Titans would cross paths for a two-issue arc beginning in night wing #90. Wally has previously appeared in the series alongside the Titans to protect Dick from an assassination attempt, and the two have also been seen together in the ongoing series. Teen Titans Academy.
Of course, it’s not the only crossover fans can look forward to in the coming months. Although there is no connection with night wing, Dick Grayson and Wally West will also be featured in the upcoming event War for Earth-3, which will have links from Teen Titans Academy, the flash and suicide squad, and will be supplemented by two special issues. The event kicks off in March, but it’s unclear if Haley could appear on the show.
The last event Nightwing participated in was Batman: State of Fear, and in this story, Dick left Haley with some neighbors to look after her while he helped the Bat Family fight off the Magistrate and the Scarecrow. Since Haley still hasn’t dressed up as a Bitewing, readers will have to wait and see if she ever steps out on the court – except when she’s walking around, of course.
night wing #91 goes on sale April 19 from DC Comics.
