Thanks for the thoughtful replies. I will take them into consideration.
However, I find Year One to have been too focused on the Bat-family, and I don't think the Titans were given their due. Many of the character moments were nice, especially the Superman and Jim Gordon ones, but I did not like the interactions between Nightwing and Batgirl. It felt like another "star-crossed lovers ret-con" to me. Had there been no romantic overtones, I would have been fine with it. As you pointed out in an earlier thread, Nathaniel, ret-cons such as Nightwing Annual #2 have made people think Dick and Babs were together for much longer than they really were. Year One contributes to that. I'm not a Dick/Kory shipper, but I felt Dixon was suggesting Dick didn't actually love Kory, etc. To me, that's not an accurate grasp on the character because it ignores the NTT history. Plus, it kind of makes Dick look like a dick and I'm never a fan of that. I might be nit-picking a bit and letting the little things ruin my overall enjoyment of the work, but for some of us, this kind of stuff is a big deal. Dick was established, for such a long time, as someone who was loving, respectful, and not a cad. It's one of the many reasons he has so many female fans. Ret-cons that tarnish that image really annoy some of us.
I think I'm too wedded to "The Judas Contract" to ever truly enjoy Bruce firing Dick. This version was so harsh. Yes, it's high drama, but I hate to see Bruce being that much of a jerk.
But, seriously, thanks for the replies. I don't hate Year One, but I guess I would never put it in my top 5.
