    If you know me, you know how sad I am about Bruce "dying;" or should I say, how sad I am over his removal from DC continuity... He is by far my favorite character in comics. So when I heard that Batman: Streets of Gotham was coming out, I knew I had to get my hands on it. Here it is! The issue came out yesterday, and is up for review today! How do you feel now that Dick Grayson is the new Batman? Do you think this is a good introduction for readers to see whether or not he'll do a good job? Let me know what you guys think!

    I liked this book. I liked Damien more than I liked him in other books, it was a good portrayal.


    Good point with the Harley Quin thing, but I feel that Dick was just giving her a warning, letting her know Batman is still around, cause she is bound to get into more trouble in the future. Whether Bruce would of done the same I am not sure, but I could see him doing it.

    I think this is one of the coolest portrayals of Fire fly I have ever seen.

    Here I skipped out on going to the LCBS today!  Aarrgghhh.  Hopefully this will be available tomorrow. 
    I love that cover.  Did I say I love that cover?  No, I LOVE that cover.  I love it so much I want to marry it.  The grays in that watercolor painting make me want to cry it's so well executed.

    Stories on comics come and go, get forgotten, get retconned, but the really good ones will be part of the "hero's myth", and I think this is it, we are kinda of watching "History be written", if you will.

    It would only be natural, for Dick to pick up the mantle, and it's not that I like my heroes being killed, but the passage of the mantle is the truly realistic way to keep the hero immortal. I mean we all love Bruce or Peter or Clark, but it's interesting to see Batman becoming something different from Bruce, in the way that Dick will take different decision,it's own mistakes and do things his way, and still be true to what Batman represents.

    Damian on the other hand brings a very nice dynamic to the dynamic duo, even though the kid really annoys me!


    This kinda of made me want to grab this issue.

    Good review Babs, but G-man does a better Batman impression =D just kidding...

    Firefly is my favorite DC character and thank you whoever (I think it was Gail Simone) from rescuing him from death by Rucka.

    Love Dini's rendition of  Hush and his new role.

    Love Dini's writing. This issue was better than the Morrison one for me.

    Uhh guys I was wondering, what about Bruce? Not as Batman but as Bruce Wayne? I mean isn't anyone wondering where he is in the comic?

     Also, what about Wayne enterprises and Wayne manor and the money? Has any of that been explored at all? O_O?

    Not sure if anyone's written this yet, but Nguyen is pronounced "win".

    I know. I suck for even caring about how the name's pronounced.

    That's a great question. After Final Crisis I had talked to Dan Didio and he told me that Batman was "lost in space and time;" whatever that means, you've got me! But last we saw him he was in a cave somewhere...The idea of who would get the money, is questionable due to the fact that both Dick and Tim had been adopted, and Damien is Bruce's biological son. Good question!

    I also love Mr. Nguyen's work, and Mr. Dini's

    Harley, god love her, is a trouble maker. Dick just needed to make it clear to her that he wasn't about to put up with her nonsense. That being said Dick may be overcompensating while trying to fill Bruce's shoes.

    I hate Damian, hate him.

    i haven't read the issue yet, but i think i read something about hush coming back very soon in this book and gotham city sirens. and if harley's going around buying things with money that she got for helping catwoman deal with hush, he's probably not going to be too happy.   i think dick probably knows a little bit more about his movements than the reader does at this point, and if so he is probably just warning her so that she will leave before hush comes after her.  so i wouldn't be so hard on him for it.

    I hope they keep Hush in the Hannibal Lecter role for a few issues before letting him rip.

    As for Harley...she's the girlfriend (Or ex) of the biggest psycho in the DC universe.telling her to get a fresh start somewhere else was being nice.

    I was under the impression that the world still believed Bruce was alive doing the rich playboy thing all over the world.  Before Hush was caught, he traveled around as Bruce (after Bruce's 'death') so people probably figure he's just doing his thing.  Now I know we've seen a couple cemetery scenes but have I missed an actual funeral scene?

    it was definitely one of the better books this week..i'd probably say it gets book of the week for me.
    i mean, i'm fine with the way dick "abuses" harley, but that's probably just because i'm not a harly quinn fan.  also, she's tried to kill dick before...maybe he's not gonna put up with that shit lol.  he seems to make a fine batman anyway...though i would have perferred tim as batman.  go out and read robin comics towards the end of the series and then read nightwing and tell me which character seemed more like batman. 
    also, i can't stand damien.  i wish he was never created....look at me ramblin on lol.

    Your hot! But I gotta give some nostalgia  here you said this was the first time Dick was batman? But I remember in the 90's (sometime around knightfall I think it was called "Prodigal" forgive me its been years since I read it) Dick Grayson was batman for a few issues. Just saying that this isn't really the first time he was batman. this was back when Bruce's back was messed up. This was a Dick vs Two-Face arc, give it a read it was a good story :)

    Dick harrasing Harley is important as it shows that he is the one in control and that he's not just gonna let her go without a slight telling off. lol.

    I love the emotional baggage and the colossal responsibility Dick is taking on with such an identity as Batman's. Being the Bats was a torturous and parasitical thing that almost eventually consumed even Bruce. He's gotta do all of this with an arrogant Damian as Robin? Such an exciting time right now.

    I think the whole thing where Dick pulls Harley up in the air off the street to tell her to get out of Gotham is exactly the kind of thing Bruce would have done. Besides I think that if Dick doesn't portray his Batman as a Hard-ass than the villains are not going to take him serious. He is going to need to come off even more extreme than the original Batman to let these villains know that he isn't to be taken lightly.

    @Babs:
    Damien is Bruce's biological son, but has that been proven to the world at large? I don't know if its public knowledge that Bruce has a "love child", so Dick & Tim would probably get the money. And even if Damien is the legal heir, he's too young to legally inherit everything anyway, so Dick would probably be named his legal guardian or conservator of the estate until such time as Damien is at least 18 years old.

    Great review as always, BTW. Even though you've turned on Batman for Black Panther.........j/k.

    I love Paul Dini's Batman stories.  His stuff on "Detective Comics" was so great and this comic was awesome as well. Plus "Manhunter" is all kinds of awesome.

    it is really awesome. i was sceptical at first when i heard about the new batman series, but it turned out to be pretty bad ass so far.

    Excellent review! I loved this issue. I thought Dini did a wonderful job. I actually remember an episode of Batman the Animated Series where Harley gets released from Arkham and is determined to walk the straight and narrow path. She goes into a high brow store with her pet hyenas lol and is harassed by the sales clerks when she pays but does not stick around long enough to get the security tags removed from her dresses. But a nice retelling by Dini.

    Thanks! It's been one of my favorite books so far. I like Dini's Harley, he created her, he knows exactly what to do. Coupled with the art by Nguyen and we have a fantastic issue :)
