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.

Summary:
In this Elseworlds tale set in the year 1900, Bruce Wayne’s parents are killed by a deranged man, prompting Bruce to dedicate his life to 'curing' the deranged. He trains to be a doctor, purchases Arkham Asylum and changes the way those incarcerated are treated. Thus, by day is is a caring doctor and by night, the avenger Batman capturing those he feels needs his help, placing them in Arkham.

Bruce has some success stories - Killer Croc - but fails with the Joker who sprays him with a psychotic drug leaving him in a world of hell and incarcerated in Arkham himself. Professor Crane takes over and changes methods. Finally, Bruce regains his senses, captures the Joker and fires Crane who promises to return.

Dick appears in a minor role working for Wayne and dedicated to him.
