Nightwing (1996) Issue #6 by Chuck Dixon

This issue has a few pages dedicated to Nightwing and Robin (now Tim Drake), which makes it note-worthy in my mind. This is really the first time in this series so far that we’ve seen these two together like this, talking about Batman and what it means to wear Robins colors.

We get to see Nightwing fight to protect the young Robin, maybe for the first time realizing that Tim Drake was the closest thing to a brother he had left. Even knowing that Dick and Bruce did not part amicably, Tim still wants to hang out with Dick in Blüdhaven, fully knowing that Bruce will probably not like it.

This issue has more plot that I’m not mentioning, but just know that there is some really nice Robin and Nightwing bonding while they stake out some bad guys.
