DC Comics Teases Major Trauma for Dick Grayson in Nightwing #50

October's Nightwing #50 will kick off the "Knight Terrors" storyline, which will delve into a traumatic event in Dick Grayson's past. The four-issue arc will see Dick forced to come face-to-face with Dr. Jonathan Crane as he reminisces about a scarring time when he was at a crossroads in life. A new, traumatic injury will be the catalyst for Nightwing's ruminations.

DC Comics has teased the upcoming issue by tweeting a piece of teaser art alongside the caption, "Some scars run deeper than others." The teaser is credited to Christopher Mooneyham, one of the artists working on the issue. DC has been hinting for some time now that Nightwing will soon receive a life-changing injury. It seems that injury might be a nasty blow to the head, if the teaser is to be believed.
