HOLY $#%&!!! This is why I read comics, this is why I spend my hard-earned dollars on fictional characters and the stories they're involved in. It is always a pleasure to see Bruce's emotional side, the man behind the Batman and seeing Thomas sacrifice himself for Bruce plays into why the Batman exists in the first place, to turn the pain and suffering of an individual into something greater witho more

Liked how the pregnancy issue was resolved. Great character moments for Shawn, Dick and Damian, but the conclusion with Hurt and Deathwing left me going 'Huh?'

Nice bit of character study. I enjoyed seeing the interactions between them and their approaches to the issue at hand. Edit Even mote so, I like the distinction made between Batman and Nightwing's leadership styles. Batman's 'Do as I say.' Vs Nightwing's take charge to brainstorm as a team and come to a consensus.

Wasn't so sure about this new relationship but I liked the issue with the way Dick touched base with friends and ex-lovers and the organic development of the relationship. Sorry that Damian didn't make it in it though and that last panel... spoiler to say more, but was not keen at all on the suggestion.
