'Over the years, a few writers and artists have tried to swim against the [grim and gritty] tide -- as I did with GENERATIONS, for instance. In fact, when I did BATMAN & CAPTAIN AMERICA, which basically spawned G1 when Marvel and DC decided not to play nice any more, I said I hoped my book would be popular enough to create a new "trend" in comics -- FUN! I also said, tho, looking back on how "relevant" had spun down into "grim and gritty", that I expected if "fun" did catch on it would not be long before it became "goofy".' - John Byrne

Seeing old Bucky characterization after the Brubaker retcon is just strange

That page where Bruce works out who Steve is, followed by Steve promptly putting the clues together, is magnificent. None of the broody grim Batman, he knows he's dealing with a good man, so is simply honest, and vice versa. Very nice.

I have always loved this mini. Batman and Steve Rogers are such good mirrors and foils for one another.

This is a fun story! I like the old-fashioned team-ups. :)

I love how the wartime activities go towards explaining why things in Batman are the way that they are.

Why did Batman trade Robin out for Bucky, though?
