    Right?

    How many books are like that right now? Not very many. Could be lots of fun.

    All we know it’s going to end this year. I mean who should Dick be with? I mean would Superman’s editorial office be any better?

    Honestly I don't know. Damian [I think Jason might be a well] is under the Superman office. He hasn't had a bad time like Dick but it didn't stop the Bat Books using him as a device as and when needed.

    The most important thing is there being a clear plan for the characters future. Management keeping an eye on how he is used.

    Example Damian was placed off limits making him unavailable for some stories. The reason. Danger of over exposure. That is good since someone was mentoring.

    The bad. Priest's 1st draft of lazarus Contract was rejected because the Damian was m,ore like Priest's regular Damian but editorial deemed him too soft leading to a re-write and we all know how that version acts in comparison to the Damian in Deathstroke.

    So there's good and bad but at least someone in that office was watching what was being done with the character. Dick Grayson it doesn't feel like anyone is watching/checking what's being done.

    I'm with dietrich; there's pro's and con's to Dick moving offices. I personally think the pro's would outweigh the con's, but that's just an assumption.

    I do think, right this very moment, it could be a good thing for Dick. Bendis is driving the Super bus these days, and Dick is a character right up his alley and in his sweet spot as a creator. I'm sure Bendis wouldn't mind getting his hands on a character like Dick, if only to provide something different from what he's doing in the main DCU right now, where he's dealing with not just super powered people, but people on the very upper end of the scale.

    It also puts Dick under the creative control of a writer with enough pull to do what he wants. So if Dick really is getting sabotaged by upper management, Bendis provides a lot of protection Dick doesn't have right now.

    I'd be interested in seeing Dick switch offices, but I don't know if we'd actually be better off. I doubt we'd be any worse though, so it's a risk I'd be willing to take.

    They held up better, for far longer, than they had any right to. I applaud our fellow fans for sticking with such an awful book and direction, even though that loyalty meant DC could drag this out much longer than they should have without being penalized for it.

    But for reals, next time something like this happens guys, just drop the book quickly.

    Ah Remember when Dick was the face of DC's espionage corner and we had Grayson, Midnighter and Suicide Squad together? It was like dick was the head of his own family of books for a second.

    Good times.
