Outside comis I would agree with "Robin's Reckoning" but I can think in many others.

My favorite ever though is Dark Victory, no contest.

No, Helena used a spy satellite to wiped his name from everybody's minds, except his family and friends' and hers.

Irrelevant. In the end we lose the character all the same.

Why do you want him dead anyway?

@nathaniel_christopher: Superman is a reporter, I hope he woldn't use a hollow phrase to speak of a friend. That's pretty much the problem at it's best it's a platitude, a niceness because it doesn't say anything about Dick. Imagine it in a resume "Special attributes" "I'm clearer vision of what a employee is meant to be"

Nevermind that I'm pretty sure Batman was meant to inspire fear in criminals.

And if you go for this issue Batman was meant to give up

Platitudes are meaningless statements, which this isn't. None of what Batman says to Damian about the Robin's in the issue is, nor is it even treated as such within the work. As I said previously, there's no way to read this and argue that Bruce isn't showing respect to everyone he's speaking of, Damian included. I can understand wanting him to go more in-depth, that's one thing, but it also doesn't negate the purpose and praise of his speech. Heck, he said he respects Tim's strategic mind, yet didn't provide a single example as to why or for what.

Everyone in the Bat Family inspires fear in criminals and does all of the same things as Bruce does to some extent, so if you just take "inspire fear in criminals" then I don't really see how it's an issue still.

You could read the entire event and know that Batman's purpose isn't to give up, but ok.

It is a meaningless statement. Looking around nobody seem to translate this phrase in the same way someone said "morality pet" " a good person" "a good hero". Everybody gets it's supposed to be good but in reality they are just filling in the blank. It is a nice sounding nothing.

A strategic mind is something to be respected, a clearer vision not so much, as Damian proved by punching Dick in the face, after he completely gave up.

Nothing about this event is respectful.

@nathaniel_christopher: "A clearer vision of what Batman was mean to be" It's a bunch of light words that don't say anything. It's not a description of any kind or a quality, capacity or merit.

Like; "@nathaniel_christopheris a clearer vision of what a comic vine comenter was meant to be" or Trump "A clearer vision of what a political was meant to be" or for a blind date "she is a clearer vision of what a girl was meant to be"

Tim is smart, and Jason kills (now, with Batman endorsement). Dick? well, Dick is a vision

Historically Starifire, her and Dick NTT days realationship was great wile Barbara and Dick always seem a little unbalanced.

Right now Starfire hands down. You should always go with the people that is happy to see you, and this two were happy to be around each other.

Is Batman & Robin Eternal worth reading?

Maybe if you like Cass and Harper, but no as a Dick Grayson story or a Robin story or Batman story, definitely not as a Batman and Robin story.
