This one has a really nice opening sequence. It’s got a great cinematic, action movie quality to it.
Part of this issue is a flashback story that shows us when Dick met Jason Todd for the first time. It’s been done at least a couple times before. I can’t say this is my favorite take, but it’s perfectly serviceable.
One thing about the flashback story I didn’t like was how quickly Dick and Jason got chummy. It’s to the point where Dick calls Jason his brother by the end of the story. That’s a little on the nose, isn’t it?
