Previews for Nightwing #17 and Read Hood and the Outlaws #17

From Newsarama's preview of RH&tO #17 as Jason decides on how to deal with the aftermath of the whole Death of the Family thing, he reaches out to a rather unexpected person.

Gah, I hate that they actually refer t to being Robin as an internship, I should be used to that by now, but it irks me every time.

Meanwhile over in CBR's preview of Nightwing #17, we see that though Dick is in a very bad place having had nearly everything that the last year and a half of his book has been about wiped out, he has someone who clearly still has his eye on him.

I do like that Damian still seems to have a soft spot for Nightwing, the first person to ever actually care about him for himself and not because of who he was related to.

I would agree based on Damian's torso-twisting antics in that last panel. He...shouldn't have a spine, based on that pose.

Right there with you, making Robin explicitly an intern-type thing was an absolutely terrible idea.
I also hate the way Jason says that Damian is actually Bruce's son, unlike him. I mean, Jason would probably say that anyway just because he's resentful, but the whole thing really reminds me of how DC has ditched the familial aspect of the Bat-Family and how much I hate that change.
It's nice that Damian is still fond of Dick though, their relationship remains far more interesting imo than Bruce and Damian's.

The fact that Damian is appearing in his brothers' books seems to further solidify the ominous feeling that this month will truly be his last. :/

Until another writer decides to revive him again.

I was actually more surprised at the fact that Batman Inc is part of the New 52 continuity at all. It feels so divorced from everything that's been happening in the Batman books.

This. The explicit reasoning behind my dropping Inc was that the storyline was just too separate from the rest of the batbooks. I dropped at #6, and when I was discussing it at my LCS there was general agreement that the separation was an issue.

... trying to incorporate Inc (heh) now just weirds me out.

Damian beat the crap out of the Joker with a crowbar. I'm SO glad that he and Jason finally had a nice brotherly talk :)

"Damian beat the crap out of the Joker with a crowbar."

And then the Joker drugged him and used Damian as a blunt instrument to escape police custoy.

The Joker is the biggest, most obnoxious God Sue I've ever seen. It's impossible to take him out for good. So, I'll take whatever little joy I can :P

So even the characters realize being Robin is just an internship...

I think it suits his character to consider it as such, even if it does ring true to some of the negative elements of the New52. Even before the reboot, everyone except Damian had moved on to a different role after varying degrees of time in the costume, which does make it seem remarkably like an internship at Batman's side.

I know. I just thought it fell a bit flat consideing how the New 52 changed the length of time the first three were Robins (and in Tim's case making him Red Robin from the beginning).

Okay, I'm just going to say a few things, here.

No one is more surprised than me that I like Damian. PARTICULARLY as a team with Nightwing. Damian with Bruce is uninspiring...Damian with Dick is both funny and kind of heartwarming. Damian and Dick appear to genuinely care about each other and Dick has the capacity to reach Damian in a way Bruce never can or will. One of the most affecting parts of Morrison's Batman and Robin for me was when Bruce came back and Damian asked, crestfallen, about the future. He LIKED being Robin under Dick...and they make a great inversion of serious Batman and spritely Robin.

Also, the New 52 is so dang confusing that it irritates. They should have done a total proper reboot....instead we're right back where we were after Crisis and then after Zero Hour, where no one can keep straight the actual continuity. When you only reboot 2/3rds of it, it just makes it harder to understand for fans and does nothing to help new/non-fans regardless.

Okay, the titles of the New 52 that I'm reading have dwindled to...zero (if you don't count the fact that a few weeks ago I bought issues 1-14 of Demon Knights and read them in a weekend). But I'm going to buy this issue of Nightwing, mostly to tell DC that I support Dick and Damian team-ups.
