Earth-2’s Batman is Dick Grayson. Does he have what it takes to be a true Batman and follow in the legacy of Bruce and Thomas Wayne before him? Or will he only ever be a stand-in? Beyond anything else, he has one overriding goal...to find his missing son. Is that a job for the Batman...or is it something only Dick Grayson can do? The Wayne legacy is at stake. This is an epic turning point in the history of Earth-2’s Batman.
While I love all of the characters of Earth 2 and that they all get a chance to play in our stories, I have to say that I think this Annual is exactly what we need because really, after this series started we never really got a chance to get to know these characters individually........ especially the Dick Grayson Batman. Who knows what's coming down the line with an Earth 2: Rebirth, but whatever it is, hopefully we can take a look at these characters a little deeper than we have and hopefully we won't have to wait for Annuals to do it.
