For months readers have worried that Dick Grayson might be the latest Robin to die in comics. The signs were certainly there. He was tortured and had his identity revealed in Forever Evil. And then they cancelled his comic, Nightwing.

But rest assure Dick lovers, Mr. Grayson is staying in…

He’s got short hair? What a waste :)

Robin-Dick trying to flirt with Batgirl-Barbara is too adorable.

These two panels are really great examples of their relationship and characters; Dick is imitating a grinning gargoyle, and Babs is cautiously indulgent. Cute kids.

I spoke about Something Terrible with Kevin Smith on Fatman on Batman. It was an extreme honor.

(Note: Kev and I spoke pretty candidly, so apologies for language and opinions.)

This was amazing to listen to! I’m REALLY looking forward to getting my hardback of Something Terrible, and hope to be able to pick up a big print of “You’ll be Safe Here” some day.

Dick Grayson is trading his superhero suit for secret-agent cool.
Batman’s former sidekick embarks on a new life as an undercover superspy in the comic book Grayson, an action-adventure series premiering July 2 from DC Comics. It’s written by Tim Seeley (Revival) and Tom King, a former CIA counterterrorism operations officer.
After a career of being overshadowed by his cape-and-cowled father figure, this is a chance for Grayson “to take off the mask and step out on his own in a world where he’s not simply being another hero like the hero he grew up with,” King says.
Batman, though, wants him to transition to a different heroic life for the greater good — it’s “a hard sell,” Seeley says — and tells him why he needs his former partner to stay dead, not only to the world at large but to Batgirl, Alfred Pennyworth and the rest of the “Bat-family.”
"Obviously, he’s a part of a legacy," Seeley says. "He’s been Robin, he’s been Batman, and now he’s out in the cold by himself."
Adds King: “He’s doing something that’s going to cause pain to his friends and family, but he believes in the cause. That tension between having to do something good but having the cost of it being pain to his family, it drives him a little crazy.”
Grayson’s new employer is the international spy agency Spyral, an organization created by writer Grant Morrison for his Batman, Incorporated series. King sees it as representative of today’s intelligence community: They’re the people who stop bad guys from doing bad things, yet to do that, they employ questionable tactics such as mind erosion.
"He has to save the world, but he’s dealing with an organization that may go beyond his comfort zone," King says.
Seeley likes putting Grayson in this strange position, working for a group “that purports to be on the side of the angels, but clearly, there’s some weird stuff going in. Their penchant for manipulation instantly makes them nefarious.”
King, who started working for the CIA after 9/11, intends to bring to Grayson the emotional feel for what it’s like to work undercover, have bullets shot at you and cope with the the inherent pressure of being an intelligence agent.
"It’s bliss to serve a higher cause and save people," he says, but "the hard part of it is it’s tough to go home and lie to your family and pretend to be a different person."
For the supporting cast, Seeley is planning to reintroduce some familiar DC characters but also to create a new mythos for Grayson, including his own archenemy.
"He’s always been a character who hasn’t had a villain associated with him," King says. "We want to give him his Lex Luthor, his Joker."
Also, Grayson is one of the few superheroes “who is considered a sex symbol by ladies,” Seeley says. “We’re leaning into that.”
At the very least, he is getting a wardrobe makeover, courtesy of Grayson artist Mikel Janin: Gone is Grayson’s mask, and his new outfit reflects the blue-and-black color scheme of his Nightwing togs and features a “G” on his chest, reminiscent of the old “R” from his Robin days.
In terms of tone, Seeley describes Grayson as a “world-hopping” action comic, and King wants every issue to feel like a TV episode of Mad Men or Breaking Bad in that it causes a conversation.
"It’s DC’s The Americans,” King says. “This is something where, at the end of it, you have to go and talk about it.”

I’m thinking that this could either be amazing or ruin the character for me. I can COMPLETELY see the potential for this to be badass; Dick has always been a suave guy, and he works well undercover (and with other people).  However, I will be completely turned off if the their take on Dick being a “sex symbol” is to make him into a James Bond type of playboy. He’s sexy, and he tends to fall hard and fast, but I’ve never seen him as an actual playboy sort (like Oliver Queen or Tony Stark).
I really hope that when they do decide to bring Damian back that they pair him with Dick in this setting; it would make sense narratively and would be an awesome homage to their partnership.
Fingers crossed.

[me drawing 7s with a little line through them to impress girls in the library]: hmm. what? yes, i always draw 7s like this. it’s normal for me.

Heh…see, I actually started doing that after going to school with a bunch of European students…because my handwriting SUCKS, and it really did make it easier to see I was writing a 7, not a 1.
