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 Series: BATMAN, INCORPORATED makes its NEW 52 debut with an all-new first issue!• The series hits the ground running as BATMAN and ROBIN face off against the assassin GOATBOY!• LEVIATHAN'S sinister mission revealed!

As stated in my initial review of the first series of "Batman Inc" the idea of Batman Inc simply doesn't work for me. Batman is supposed to be an enigma. A creature of the night who may well be supernatural. This I see as an essential component of who and what Batman is. The idea of more than one Batman weakens the entire concept. All of the sudden, Batman isn't an avenging angel, but a corporation with a title. While I understand why DC may like to investigate such an idea, I believe it would have been more suitable as an Elseworld's series and not the majar event affecting all Bat titles.

Back to this issue - This continues on from the Leviation one off. We discover that all of the Batman Inc members believed dead are actually alive and ends with a cliffhanger - Damian apparantely assassinated.

Dick is mentioned twice.

Official Summary:
BATMAN and TALIA AL GHUL continue their fight for control of their son DAMIAN – better known as ROBIN! • WINGMAN and REDBIRD descent upon GOTHAM CITY! Who are these heroes, and what is their relationship to THE DARK KNIGHT?

Comment
Nightwing is a member of Batman's forces, attacking on his command. This is a very difficult time for Damian who finds out that Wingman is Jason. Interestingly, it appears that Dick has his arm around Tim's shoulders in this image. If so, this very much reflects the pre-New 52 relationship between the two. Sadly, New 52 seems to have all but destroyed the close bond between these two.

Dick appears in 2 panels - hailing Gordon and speaking to him. There is no sign of him before the big explosion so we can assume he is safe.
