Nightwing #113 might already be on your pull list if you're a DC fan. It continues Tom Taylor and Bruce Redondo's much-lauded run with the character, with a host of other collaborators including a writing credit from Teen Titans legend Marv Wolfman, and is technically the 300th issue of the Nightwing series (if you start counting pre-DC reboot). But now, there's even more reason to pick up the issue, especially for all you anime fans out there:

Jujutsu Kaisen's own Yuji Itadori makes an easter egg appearance.

First brought to our attention via the Twitter/X profile for ScreenTime and then confirmed by artist Daniele Di Nicuolo, the cameo appears on the page pictured below. Since we don't want to spoil the surprise, go ahead and take a look at the page first to see if you can spot Yuji.

Before you get too excited, remember: an easter egg is all this is. It's not, to anyone's knowledge, an announcement of a sneaky crossover, and certainly not a shared universe. However, it's a fun nod to anime fans on a page absolutely full of other easter eggs - look closely and you'll be able to see characters from Taylor's Seven Secrets comic, as well as a pretty obvious reference to Wolfman's Titans collaborator George Pérez.

Nightwing #113 is written by Tom Taylor, Marv Wolfman, and Michael W. Conrad. It features art by Bruno Redondo, Howard Porter, and Daniele Di Nicuolo; colors by Adriano Lucas; and letters by Hi-Fi's Wes Abbott. You can snag a copy on Amazon or at your local comic book shop now.
