Batman: Family (2002-2003) #7 (of 8)
“Is he giving you any trouble? Got you. He talks too much. I heard about your visit with Cain. I know that must have been hard for you. If you need someone to talk to, let me know. I’ve been there.”
Dick proves once more why he’s so beloved as the Big Brother of the DCU here. He’s given similar talks to Jason and Tim in the past, making it clear that he wants his siblings to talk to him when they need him. Advice that he should take more for himself, though that’s a discussion for another time.
Again, let’s give major credit to the creative team here because their handling of Cass is easily some of the best Cass stuff around. They really get her character, how to write the minimal dialogue without skimping out on her humor and emotions, and also just nailing that stubbornness. We might see (soon) that Dick’s outreach means a heck of a lot to Cass, but she’s not exactly one to open up very easily.
A+ stuff all around.
