Dick Grayson has inherited Alfred’s fortune, a puppy, and a whole lot of questions. Who is Mayor Zucco, and what is her relation to the man who murdered Dick’s parents? What sinister plans does Blockbuster have for Blüdhaven? What kind of dog food is best for a three-legged puppy? To answer these questions, Dick’s going to need a little help from his friends-past and present.
Dick Grayson waxes philosophical when it comes to the mentors in his life. When he and Barbara Gordon go out for pizza, they’re interrupted by a man and his son begging for money. Dick responds by with a kind gesture toward the family, and the community. When his wallet is stolen later on, he has a confrontation with a mob boss’s henchmen while tracking down the petty thieves. When he finally catches those that pickpocketed him, he discovers something surprising and Dick later makes a decision that will change his life. All the while, a new villain emerges and engages in a shocking activity.
