Did Dick and Rose ever mention or interact with each other after this arc besides that one page in Ttans East? Oh and while we're on the subject when is Dick going to hunt Slade down like a dog for dropping Chemo on his city and brainwashing Batgirl just to get revenge for losing Rose? I mean Green Arrow and Geo-Force have had reckonings with him and there is far less bad blood there.

It seems Dick would rather blame Cassandra for her own brainwashing than to do anything about Slade, the guy who killed almost all his Bludhaven friends and nuked the city. Bat-dickery has infected Dick himself.

Most of the Bat-writers would rather pretend Devin Grayson's NIGHTWING run never happened. Probably a "Bros Before Hoes" thing since she dated Mark Waid. I'm surprised we're getting Blockbuster for BLACKEST NIGHT.

What's Devin's connection to Mark Waid, out of curiousity? It's the first I've heard of it.

Uh, okay. I still don't get what the deal is here. Is it a bad thing she dated Waid?

IIRC, they had a rather nasty break-up.

Oh I agree with pretending though Blockbuster made a reference to his death in Blackest Night:Batman #2. Written by Tomasi whose practically on the opposite end of the writing spectrum from Grayson in my opinion. Still an epic duel with Deathstroke would be cool though there would have to mior to it than that.
There was that extra page in the Infinite Crisis trade where Nightwing, Robin, and Batman all fight Slade. It's been a while since I read it but I believe it has Bruce calling Slade out on abandoning his honor code. Then Dick mentions his family and Slade screams something to the effect of "because of you Grayson!"" At least that's how I remeber it.
