Users who pulled this comic:


  1. This sounds very fun. I love Dick Grayson Robin stories!

  2. This should be cool. Nice little surprise for me. I had no idea O’Neil was doing this.

    Nguyen is just kicking ass with these covers recently. I’ve always been a fan, but the guy’s on a roll. One nitpick though; Does it bother anyone else that he refuses to segment Grayson Batman’s gauntlet/gloves? I know it’s a minor thing, but it’s one of the few distinctions between he and Bruce’s costume, and it’s the kind of thing I’d be on him about if I were editing.

  3. I’d read anything with O’Neil’s name on it. So great to see the "old guard" still producing good work. O’Neil, Wein, Levitz – I raise my hat to you, sirs!

  4. This should have more than 4 posts. Really excited


  5. The art was very well done except that half of the flashback panels were overscreened and the rest weren’t.

  6. I did not like this at all. I felt the story was very forced, and that there were alot of things that didn’t work. Like apparently Crime Alley is right near a nice suburban neighborhood? And why would the cops think a gold chain to nothing was enough to arrest him. And didn’t the guard have a ‘BANG!’ arrow poking out of his head around a Joker sighting? Yet Loomis would still get convicted for the murder? This was just flimsy. It looked very nice though.

  7. Any Batman comic these days that has both BATMAN in it, & a cohesive narrative is an automatic win for me. Good stuff.

  8. This fell kinda flat for me. Maybe I was expecting too much. O’Neil’s a legend without a doubt, and it’s pretty cool to see someone write Grayson Batman who was around for his days as Robin. The plot just didn’t do anything for me. I’m also normally a huge fan of Nguyen, but those flashback scenes were pretty rough. It would’ve been sweet to have Nguyen on the present tense, and someone like JH Williams on the flashbacks.

  9. I really enjoyed this, a nice one and done story.

  10. @WadeWilson: Can’t resist taking a veiled shot at Morrison’s Batman every chance you get, can you? smh

  11. This was a great one-off!  Very well done and, in my opinion, one of the better stories of Dick as Batman.  He recollection of the past case with Bruce gave this story a great element.
