    Maybe with Mark Waid back at DC we will get him on Nightwing instead of a super book...hey, I know. But let me dream.

DC's continuity is such a mess that I don't really have any hope that it will make more sense after Death Metal, so I don't really know what to expect. Part of me wishes there would be another big reboot, but every new reboot tends to be worse and worse for Dick, so it probably wouldn't be the best.
    I'm hoping we get some solid news this weekend at the fandome. I mean, at bare minimum I want to know whether he's even going to have a solo after the culling. I'd really like to know who the creators are if his book survives, and what the general direction/premise will be.

    It's probably still too early for us to learn much of DC/AT&T's plans; the shakeups likely aren't settled enough for DC to have a ton they can talk about yet. But I mostly just want to know the book is safe, and not getting bottom of the barrel creators.

    What's the point of a relaunch if they will just continue to do the same things they're doing now. When they relaunch will he not be in bludhaven, with the titans, will they won't they with babs or star, treated like a sidekick? But the relaunch isn't for nightwing so I get it.

    On that same note, what is the point of bringing Dick back if they are just gonna have him do the same things as Ric under the same writer as Ric. Answer is there is none, they are just desperate and trying to do what they can with the little means they are willing to afford the character. Its the same reason Ric existed in the first place. The felt they had to do something, so they did, but couldn't afford to take the time to actually think it trough and actually execute it properly.

    There's clearly some plans for the Titans in the works
    It's the Dynamic Duo! Batman and Robin!... and Red Robin and Red Hood and Nightwing and Batwoman and Batgirl and Orphan and Spoiler and Bluebird and Lark and Gotham Girl and Talon and Batwing and Huntress and Azreal and Flamebird and Batcow?

    Since when could just anybody do what we trained to do? It makes it all dumb instead of special. Like it doesn't matter anymore.

    Has Tom king ever revealed if he would have brought dick grayson back before Batman 100 had he stayed on the title? Im surprised he didnt wrap up the Ric/Dick story before leaving or maybe he told Tynion when to and how he would have restored him.

    The only plan of Tom King for Dick was to shot him.

    He doesn't have any plan or involvement about what to do with Dick after that.

    Tom King was pretty fine with DC using Zatanna to cure Dick, since he doesn't need Dick anymore. He just needed Dick to be shot to affect Bruce.

    It is DC who decided they want the shot to have consequences.

    He wanted Dick back for City of Bane. Bone-headed move on his part to have a shock value moment without thinking out the consequences.

    He screwed Percy but to be fair Ric shouldn't have been as bad as it actually turned out. It took a special kind of incompetency to have it turn out like it did. At worse it should have been a mediocre amnesia story. What they did though, and the creators they got to do it, they took it to another level of awful and lazy. Blatantly regurgitating recently failed ideas like We Are Robin, going to the lowest performing creators who don't generate and have a reputation for screwing up franchises (among other things), and letting it continue for two years despite its reception and its downward trend into new lows. I don't think anyone would have thought shooting him in the head would snowball into that.

    Yeah, he mentioned wanting to use the Robins more in his run but not being allowed.

    Jurgens said he was going to do a couple of issues after #75, before leaving the book to a new creative team. Probably we will get a new writer in issue #78.
