Spyral Goes Out With A Bang (And A Frankenstein) In ‘Grayson’ #17 [Preview]
In case you haven’t heard yet, I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news. With DC’s impending Rebirth event slouching fearfully over the horizon, it seems that the era of Dick Grayson, Agent 37 is coming to an end. On one level, that’s certainly a letdown — recasting the first Robin as a sexy super-spy dealing with the weirder corners of the DC Universe has worked better than I think any of us expected it to, and even if we all kind of assumed that it wouldn’t last forever, it’s been a pretty great direction for the character.
On the other hand, it’s actually pretty exciting to see what the next two issues bring. With the book on the way out, it seems that there are no limits to what might happen – which is how you get to an issue where Grayson and Tiger are on the run, fighting both TAO, from Alan Moore and Travis Charest‘s Wildcats, and Grant Morrison and Doug Mahnke‘s Frankenstein: Agent of SHADE, at the same time.

Agent 37 has run out of allies to turn to in his fight against Spyral. His only choice is to go even deeper into the shadows and recruit a team of spies that will help him challenge the monster that Spyral has become since his former friends Tiger and Helena took over the organization.
