For the most part, it's just Dick!Bat doing typical Batman vs. criminals stuff with little in the way of characterization to distinguish him from Bruce. He reads more like a young, less angry Bruce than Dick Grayson. I'd hoped to find the first issue with Croc for any notable moments, but I've lost the issue somewhere in my collection.
That said, I did find two which I hope will suffice for now. The first is from SHADOW OF THE BAT #33, while the other is the storyline's conclusion in ROBIN #13, wherein family matters are hashes out.
Due to the machinations of Two-Face, a riot has broken out at Blackgate Prison.
The prisoner leading the riot calls out Batman for a fight, and Dick swoops in.
So yeah, Dick has the Batman pants-shitting-terror thing down pat. But then, he already had it in an earlier scene by the same creative team, which I included in the PRODIGAL post. Keep this in mind when we get to tomorrow's Two-Face Tuesday post, focusing on Judd Winick's take on Dick becoming Batman. Again.
Dick's first time around was, of course, short-lived. Because after all, Bruce had to come back eventually. But that didn't mean he'd be welcomed back with open arms. (Note: the random captions are from Tim's subplot invading this one)
