Request: Nightwing #93-#94
By request, scans of Nightwing's rape by Tarantula and the fall-out.
As a reminder, Blockbuster has been screwing Dick's life. He's had Dick's apartment building blown up with all the tenants inside, he's had a fire devastate Haly's circus during a show (which resulted with more than 30 people dead, despite Dick being there to help), and he wanted Tarantula – vigilante of the “I'll just kill him!” variety and all-around Little Miss Happy-Go-Lucky Sociopath – to kill Barbara, as Dick's girlfriend, but Tarantula was genre-savvy enough to get that it would just make Babs a saint in Dick's eyes, so she manipulated the situation and Barbara broke up with Dick. Dick has also had to resign from the force since his captain ex-partner figured out his identity and couldn't condone a vigilante on the force.
Then Dick convinced Tarantula to help him take Blockbuster down the legal way; she agreed, and everything looked like it was going to work and if you've seen even one Joss Whedon show you know that means everything blew up in their faces pretty bad.
So now Dick has been confronting Blockbuster, and Blockbuster is taunting him that he's going to keep on screwing Dick's life for as long as there's a breath left in him, and Nightwing doesn't kill, so there's no way out. And Tarantula shows up with a gun and tells Dick to get out of the way.
The next two issues are titled Road to nowhere, which I'm sure must've made people snicker as much as I did when the last words of Nightwing: OYL were something like “please tell me it's over stop.”
Black and white = flashback.
She makes him break into a bed and breakfast.
[In the present, they find themselves fighting Copperhead, Tarantula gets poisoned, Dick (of course) has the cure, and Tarantula follows Copperhead. Dick accuses her of wanting to solve the problem by murdering Copperhead, Tarantula replies that he has issues, and leaves.]
[in the present he puts on his costume and the issue ends with him not taking Babs' call; she tells him that Blockbuster has been found dead in Blüdhaven, and clues point to Tarantula being involved.]
