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:
I have read that this series is supposed to span ten years of annual meetings between Superman and Batman and show their changing relationship. I found the two books I read quite strange and forced.

This issue pits Mr. Mxyzptlk and Bat-Mite against each other which means it is quite a rediculous story. I've always hated Bat-Mite. Robin shows up as confused as the reader. He is annoyed that Batman continues to treat him like a kid when he's now university student and a team leader. Superman points out in Batman's eyes 'Robin' is the kid, not Dick. He suggests that if Dick had a new look and a new name, Batman may treat him differently. At this point, Robin is swallowed by some goo and when he comes out he is wearing a costume not unlike Robin from Earth 2. All in all, a silly story.
