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:
MR. FREEZE is introduced to The New 52! What is Mr. Freeze's relationship to the COURT OF OWLS? Is he an ally or do they want him dead? "NIGHT OF THE OWLS" continues here!

Snyder puts a new spin on Mr. Freeze's origin, which I quite liked. No longer Nora's legal husband, but rather a scientist who studied her and then became obsessed with her. In his own delusion, she is his wife. Nightwing appears with Robin for a few fleeting pages, but Synder writes their dynamic perfectly. I just love these two together. Dick is portayed as competent, but one must remember this is a Batman book and ultimately, it must be the big black bat that saves the day. I can live with that. Dick shows not only his total faith in Batman, but a complete understanding of the way Batman works and what Batman wants.

I rather like this artist.
