CBR Review: Batman #688

I recently reviewed Batman #688 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The main repetition is a discussion between Alfred and Dick as Dick struggles with his new role as Batman, adjusting to the costume and the attitude. The scene here is more comedic and lighthearted than in Batman and Robin with Alfred amused that one of his duties is now 'pacifying a neurotic Batman.' The different tone allows the scene to be its own, but it reads like a second-rate knockoff of last week’s powerful discussion between the characters -- again, not Winick’s fault, but it’s hard to ignore."
