DC fans have recently been treated to a sneak peek of the upcoming and highly anticipated Nightwing #300 comic. Among the diverse selection of illustrations is a variant cover created by artist Serg Acuña, which shows the unexpected comeback of Nightwing's iconic (and slightly ridiculous) 1984 costume, affectionately named 'Discowing'. 

With the new edition set to be a groundbreaking narrative exploring Nightwing's past, his 84 years of comic book cameos are finally getting some real recognition. While Nightwing has been a man of many guises, I'm glad to see the Discowing character design return – now all we need is a matching Discobat costume.
