The Confluence Of Grayson #5 And Batman #156

Today is a very special episode of Grayson, in which our hero walks across a desolate expanse in extreme weather conditions, clutching a small baby, trying to keep them both alive.

No, wait, sorry, that's from Angela: Asgard's Assassin #1, also out today. But back to Grayson #5.

I know that dream…

Image (24)Clicky for biggy, No, I really know that dream. Except… it wasn't Robin's. It was Batman's. Where's my Photoshop?

Batman #156 - Page 1STK658341


Okay, that's Batman #156 on the left and Grayson #5 on the right. There's a similarity of cover, but just a minor on, yes? Okay, let's add to that first Grayson page.


But the thing is, that story was all a hallucination by Batman, under the influence of some nasty chemicals. So how come it's Dick Grayson who remembers it?

Could it really have happened?

Grayson and Angela are published today. Comics courtesy of Orbital Comics, London. With a signing today for Gabriel Hardman and Corinna Bechko, and Becky Cloonan next week, and a gallery of the work of Sean Phillips currently on display.
