When were you first introduced to Dick?
Honestly, I can’t really remember not knowing Batman and Robin… I think my earliest memories are of the 60s tv show reruns because I knew the main characters going into BTAS.

What’s your favorite Grayson moment/story (can be in comics or movies/tv)?
Birds of Prey (1998) 8 is my favorite issue. Chuck Dixon is probably my favorite Nightwing writer. I also love Dick and Damian’s relationship, so Nightwing (2016) 42 was a lot of fun for me. I also really enjoyed Bruce’s thoughts on Dick as Nightwing in Hush (also amazing art!) and Dick as Batman after Bruce came ‘back from the dead.’ For animation, my favorite arc is probably Robin’s Reckoning (BTAS).

Barbara or Kory? Someone else? Or do you prefer him alone?
Babs! I just think they fit so well. Both grew in their own, yet similar (team leaders, mentors, serious relationships, two Year One stories), ways before really coming together romantically (although there was definitely flirting in the early years!).

I was first introduced to him as robin when I was 1 (23 now). My best friend and I were given pajamas, he got Batman, I got robin. I’ve been a fan ever since. But I really started getting into Dick when I was in high school. But due to money, I didn’t really get to read any comics till after high school.

A favorite moment is hard to pick out. I’m don’t remember which series it’s from, but I really liked the conversation/ art work when Superman gives him the idea for nightwing.

I’m gay, so my favorite pairing is Wally​:eyes: Their dynamic in YJ is just really good, and I feel the show could have smoothly and easily taken them in that direction. But other than Wally, I also liked Shawn Tsang.

My introduction must have been Batman 66 reruns on The Family Channel, because I remember being antsy for him to finally show up on BTAS.

My favorite moment is probably his internal monologue at the end of Nightwing Rebirth #1, explaining what the name means. After a couple New 52 series that just weren’t for me, that was the moment I knew I was back in on that book.

Kory. I remember being taken by surprise at him flirting with Barbara in Sub-Zero, but shipping him and Kory in the Teen Titans animated series. I guess I like the study in contrasts.

My first introduction to Dick Grayson was actually in New Teen Titans. I knew of him from Batman and Detective Comics, but my introduction to him as a character was really as Nightwing. I liked his run in Grayson as well.

My favorite moment is when he was talking to all the important people in his life in his Grayson run in Grayson #12. He had returned to Gotham to talk to all the people that meant something to him and was talking in code as well. I loved how confident he was in Grayson. It really solidified him as a character for me.

Barbara is always a soft spot for me when it comes to her relationship with Dick Grayson. They are a fantastic team to me. I think they really work well off of each other.

Watching Batman: The Animated Series on Cartoon Network back in the day.

Grayson getting his new outfit in Titans

I might be in the minority, but I preferred Grayson and Zatanna from Young Justice.

  • Probably with reruns of the Batman 66 show. Or Batman Animated. One of the two. I can’t really remember not knowing about Dick Grayson.

What’s your favorite Grayson moment/story (can be in comics or movies/tv)?
-I’m a big fan of Black Mirror as a story. I like the moments in Hush when he and Bats are in the Batmobile together talking about Selina. I find the arc of his departure to Blüdhaven and becoming a cop really fascinating in context with his upbringing through Bruce. And any time he spends with Damian.

Barbara or Kory? Someone else? Or do you prefer him alone?

  • Babs. All the way. Or by himself. Really as long as he’s happy that’s what’s important. Not a fan of him with Kory in the comics, but I do think that they’re good together in the Titans show.

I didn’t really know that clubs were a thing on here, but I discovered this and Dick Grayson is my favourite superhero, so I had to join in!
