I have provided scans of the pages Dick appears in. The text is too small to read... this is deliberate. The purpose of the scans is to show other fans the scope of Dick's role. If you want to read, you will need to buy a copy of the comic... and support DC writers and artists.

Official Summary:
No one is safe now that Batman's discovered the connection between Mayor Sharp and Hugo Strange! Commissioner Gordon sees that his "traditional" methods aren't getting him anywhere... and Batman will have to look elsewhere for help. But just as Strange thinks he has the upper hand in capturing Batman, we learn that once again, Batman's ahead of the game--with the help of some old friends.

Comment - Batman: Arkham Unhinged is an original digital comic series set very specifically in the world of the Batman: Arkham City videogame. Dick appears as Nightwing in the final few pages

Art - I don't mind the art.

Story Arc:

After:

Official Summary:
Learn how the Abramovici conjoined twins made their way from a small Siberian village to a traveling freak show, and finally to the depraved insanity of ARKHAM CITY. What role did Joker have in their journey to Arkham City...and also their horrific separation?

Comment - Alfred invites Dick for dinner so he is down in the Batcave when Batman calls wanting information bout the Abramovici twins. Dick recounts stories he'd heard about the co-joined twins when he was a child growing up in the circus before they simply disappeared. Batman knows the final part of the story which involved the Joker having them separated. Now one works for the Joker and the other for the Penguin.

Art - This artist has real difficulty with facial expressions... the eyes in particular. Dick often looks like his eyes are rolling back in his head.

Official Summary:
The Sirens' allegiance falls even further into ruin as promises are broken and schemes are thwarted. And with Batman used as a lure, the situation is about to get even more complicated for Catwoman! Who will prevail in this splintered threesome?

Comment - Dick appears as Nightwing in one image. There is also an image of Robin. It is not in Tim's costume so this must be either Jason or an image of Dick when he was Robin.

Art - I rather like the art.

Official Summary:
Hugo Strange's targeted attack begins while Batman, attempting to scale the massive Wonder Tower, can only watch. But Batman doesn't know that in addition to attacking Arkham City, Strange ordered a second attack--somewhere very close to home.

Comment - Nightwing is leading Robin's training in the Batcave... nice banter between the two... when Wayne Manor is attacked. With the help of the trusty Alfred, the boys take care of things. Alfred has some wonderful lines. When capturing one thug and taking back one of Dick's electric sticks he states, "Always picking up after the boys."

I've given this an 'Excellent' rating because of the ongoing light-hearted banter and because he sees the attack as part of an adventure. Nothing is taken seriously. I really like to see Dick written that way.
