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.

Story Arc:
This is the animated series' version of how Dick Grayson became Nightwing. First, Robin and Batman begin to see things differently. Then Batman shares his secret with Batgirl... Dick's girlfriend... and things go from bad to worse. Tim is shown watching the Dynamic Duo and enters the hero business without a mask. Dick resigns as Robin and goes in search of himself... similar to the story told in Dick's Titans days where he goes off and learns from a secluded tribes and martial arts experts.. After over a year of training, he returns to Gotham as Nightwing and joins Batman, Batgirl, and Tim as the new Robin in the fight against crime.BTW, my favourite line in this series comes from Alfred. He comes in and finds Barbara in the cave and promptly says, "Yes, I admit it. I'm Batman."
