    I'm on record saying that Abnett's Dick Grayson in Titans is arguably the worst written version of the character I've ever read. I wouldn't recommend that Titans series in general, but especially if you are looking to read more Nightwing.

    I'm not sure which comics you are referring to. Barbara Appered first in the late silver age when Dick was still in his teens (15 or 16) and was much shorter then her.

    The Bronze Age stated in 1969 when Dick left Gotham for Hudson and Barbra became congress woman and iirc Dick stayed in collage during the 70s, and didn't drop out untill the 80s shortly before joining the new Teen Titans.

    Late Golden Age happend before Silver Age (there was no break in continuity for Batman) do Dick would have still been 15 arround that time

    In the later Earth Two JSA Stories Time was supposed to pass in real time, with Earth Two Dick being born in 1928.
    Yeah I remember the candles are 13-14 but since it's 2 years after the publication date I count it as 10
    I thought when Babs appeared it's already Bronze Age. I've been counting Bronze since she appeared instead of Dick going to Hudson.
    Earth 2 is Golden Age, right? So he should be 12 when he first debuted in the 1940?

    Huh... but just for fun... was Roy older than everyone when he appeared? He seems older

    Actually, he didn't wrote a good Titans book, period. He started okay with the Wally arc and went downhill soon after. Its double frustrating if you are fan of Nightwing and the Titans in general.

    Well, the first arc isn't bad, especially the reunion of Wally with the others, but yeah. Overall, best to avoid it.

    There are some highlights, the annual the first 10 issues, it’s been a long time since we have seen the fab 5 together and who knows when we will ever again. It’s fun to see them being happy. It nice to see him in non bat relations

    The issue with Wally and Supes was pretty good. It was warm, I guess.
    This is a signature. It has letters on it, and those letters form words. Words like these. I will not quote anything because I'm uninspired but, I read a lot: I could!

    And this is my Tumblr. Sometimes I post stuff there.

    Brief as it was, it was a good moment.

    my own personal opinion but I really liked Abnett's Titans(Fab 5 run) better than any other iteration of Titans/Teen Titans so far. Grayson's run didn't do it for me, I really don't care about the Wolfman run and the TT series that run with the default crowd of Robin/BB/Raven/Starfire/Cyborg had made me hate Titans.

    This modern run with the Fab 5 has been my fav so far. But if I had to rank TT/Titans I'd prob go John's - Abnett - Glass

    It still blows my mind that people actually liked Abnett's Titans book beyond just nostalgia. I really thought the series was absolute garbage.

    Even for nostalgia purposes it was shit. I don't remember those characters being losers who bend over to the JL. The book is a complete waste of time. It accomplished absolutely nothing, and the team and all the characters involve were left worse off after.

    Yeah, that "Grounded" arc made me hate his book even more.

    I enjoyed Abnett's Titans at first. It didn't start to fall apart for me until the League talked Dick into disbanding his own team and starting up a new one on their terms. That was just all kinds of wrong. The Titans (especially the adult ones) do not bend to the whims of the Justice League. They don't work for them. They're not their sidekicks anymore. They're their own team who can't just be ordered to disband. That whole issue left such a bad taste in my mouth.

    And I can't even be mad at just Dick. Everyone else went along with it too. They could have kept going without him.

    I'll never, ever, forget Batman saying "Go to your room" to Donna.

    Or Roy saying they need to call the Big Guns like the Justice League because the job was out of their league.

    Or Dick asking "Are you disapointed in me?" to Batman.

    In a Titans Book!

    Then he acted like the problem was that they were all best friends...
