The Pull List (7/9/14): Boy Wonder goes 007

Posted By on Wed, Jul 9, 2014 at 9:12 AM

In recent years, the spy genre has returned to comics in a big way. Image has tackled it with books like Velvet, Ed Brubaker’s twist on the classic espionage tales. Marvel’s offered S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agents of Atlas. But if I had to guess which DC character would make a jump into the genre, I would never have said a former Boy Wonder.

Grayson, which debuts today, follows former Robin Dick Grayson in his new gig as an agent for Spyral, the Grant Morrison-created agency that debuted in Batman Incorporated. The series is written by Tim Seeley and Tom King, with art from Mikel Janin. You may remember the Spanish artist from his duties on Justice League Dark.

DC provides this teaser: “It’s a super-spy thriller that will shock you and prove one thing: You might think you know Nightwing — but you don’t know Dick.” Well, as surprising as it is for the company to put it so bluntly, that seems to say it all. Comic Afterthoughts will certainly give it a chance on that line and the above cover alone.
