'Detective Comics 942' by Steve Orlando and James Tynion IV wraps up Night of the Monster Men storyline with part 6. Even though Nightwing is on the cover and in the issue, I guess he doesn't get credit for being in the story since he's not mentioned on the splash page.
But he is a part of this story and team as he, Batwoman, Spoiler and Orphan attempt to stop the large monster threatening Gotham. Meanwhile, Batman is going straight to the source, a crazy Hugo Strange that thinks he has the drop on Batman. I loved his throne of psychology books. Back at the towers, Nightwing is on to an odd train of thought and makes a risky move to see if he can save the day. Will Gotham stand or fall when it's all done.
This whole event felt long to me. I don't know if it does anything to advance these characters, and I honestly wanted more Hugo Strange. It felt like he had some cameos, then just showed up at the end. The wrap up felt like it brought things together, but this wasn't my favorite Batman storyline.
I received a review copy of this issue from DC Entertainment and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this issue.
