| 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. |

"Day of Judgment" was a limited series (five parts) combined with a cross-over series that took place in 1999. The main storyline for the series dealt with the Spectre (whose previous host, Jim Corrigan, had left him when he ascended into Heaven) being bonded to a new host, in the form of the then-deceased Hal Jordan.
In the Batman book, Gotham City is still in the middle of the "No Man's Land" crisis. While Batman is out of town, dead gangsters rise from their graves to take over Gotham. Nightwing and Robin lead the charge with the help of Oracle. There are some wonderful exchanges between Dick and Tim in this book. The writer has really captured Dick's dry sense of humour. Also, Dick is shown to be competent and at all times has the situation well in hand. Great to see him written this way. This one is a must buy!
