Things are going to get challenging for Dick Grayson in 2011, at least according to Tony Daniel. DC comics released a sneak peek of Batman #706 that arrives in stores January 19, 2011.

“BATMAN in 2011 will prove rife full of challenges for Dick Grayson in Gotham City,” said Tony Daniel. “While the Falcones are digging deeper into the business affairs of Gotham, someone has decided to help TWO-FACE return to glory. But are there ulterior motives at play? What role does Riddler play in all this and what does he want out of it? And with Catgirl being more of a menace than a hero, will she work through her nine lives before Batman to save her…from herself? Dick Grayson has a tough road ahead as Batman but he’ll forge ahead the best way he knows how—as guardian, protector, and savior of Gotham City.”

    Okay, I missed something somewhere along the line between Batman and Robin #1 and this issue. When did the Riddler “turn heel” again and when was “Enigma” introduced?

      I think the heel turn was actually in an arc of Gotham City Sirens, and Enigma first appeared in Teen Titans 3:38.

    Really disappointed with Daniel’s work in this. He was so much better in the Batman RIP arc. Perhaps he should let someone else do his inking, everything looks furry now.
