A Small Retro!Dick Picspam  
Under the cut are 12 pics of Dick from the four-issue 1995 Nightwing run. Now, I'm the first person to admit I could lick him all over especially on a hot day, but ...





Photobucket



He sort of reminds me of my Black Labrador, Indiana. Actually, I think I'd end up with less hair in my mouth if I were to lick my dog all over rather than Dick. I absolutely wouldn't dress him in a shirt like that, though. That's animal cruelty.


Photobucket

And to think he was so cute and hairless. ~cough~ I guess.


Photobucket

As he grew he may have lost his consciousness many times but he never ever lost his wit.


Photobucket

But look at this! See what is happening here! That chest looks rather hairless!


Photobucket

Now I genuinely thought this was his underwear but, no, he actually walks around like that later on. Those are outer garments. Flash Fact.

Also, that last panel is poignant, yes? I wonder how Dick will feel when he takes off the cowl again and goes back to being Nightwing.


Photobucket

Further proof of hairlessness and that previous garments were, as stated, outer. Check out that sausage-and-two-eggs receptacle. Nice.


Photobucket

Ahhhh, that's better. I could almost kiss that pony tail. I wonder if it wags. I'm thinking about my dog again.


Photobucket

Grrrrr! Someone throw him a rope toy. Ooos a good boy den? Ooo is? Ooo is?


Photobucket

Well my mind certainly went to a dirty place when I discovered he was covered in honey. I was straight back to the licking again. Wait ... your mind didn't go to a dirty place? Right, that's it, out!


Photobucket

There's something about that hair that reminds me of Pat Sharp


Photobucket

AWWWWWWWWWWWWW! I wanna pinch Dick's cheeks. I don't need to say it, do I? Oh okay, then: ALL FOUR OF THEM!!


Photobucket

Go Dick! Go Dick! It's ya birthday! Not really. He does have a future, doesn't he? As Nightwing? DC won't take him away from us, will they? They meant it when they said they wouldn't try to kill him again???? TELL ME HE'LL BE OKAY WHEN BRUCE RETURNS!!!!

No, I haven't been at all traumatised by Torchwood: Children of Earth. I'm perfectly stable and sane, stane and sable. ~paddles~

And there ends the picspam. It is now time for a cup of tea before I start my complete re-read of all 153 issues of Nightwing plus Specials. Wish me luck, I'm going in!

That fucking mullet... And the block 'o hair angers me, too.

No, I'm afraid the only hair good enough for Dickie is the extra-long-bangs look so popular in the nineties. And his cheeks aren't all I'd pinch...

I love the extra long bangs look on Dick.

Not so much the extra long arm hair or mullet. Sheesh! Dick's like a swimmer. Hairless for the aerodynamics. Or something.

That hair has it's own consciousness, I'm sure!

Heeeeeeee! Thank you for only emailing the first one. I may not have survived the entirety of the 'Battle for the Cowl' collection with those lurking in my subconscious waiting to leap out and traumatise me at Dick's flyaway hair moments. *g*

I'm sure Bruce will come back and all will be well again. Eventually. *wishes and hopes and believes like mad*

The ponytail though... It makes me want to see the issue where Deathstroke reels him in by it and then berates him for giving his opponents such an easy handhold. Right before he draws one of his swords, chops the damn thing off, sticks in it a pocket and leaves. :D

LOL, I thought it best to minimize the trauma ~g~

Ahhh, my second favourite issue. My favourite issue being the one you mentioned earlier where Dick's hair acts as reins ...

Heh, and I LOLed in that recent Detective Comics where Dick tells Batwoman to chop off the long hair before someone yanks her around by it
Was that Dick-Batman, then? I thought it might have been Bruce. Is Detective Comics in continuity? (although, thinking about it, that does make sense. Kate's Batwoman really should be in current continuity. Hmm.)

Did you read the next issue?

NIGHTWING SHOULD NEVER LOOK LIKE PAT SHARP!

(Funhooouse it's a whole lotta fun, prizes to be won...' *wipes tear form eye* ah, memories,)


LOL, I loved Funhouse, especially the part where the kids got to crawl through all the bright plastic balls. Always wanted ball of my own.


Heh, and I LOLed in that recent Detective Comics where Dick tells Batwoman to chop off the long hair before someone yanks her around by it - you could tell he was talking from (painful) experience.


LOL, I've actually forgotten how he really loses his ponytail. Hmm, I guess I'll find out shortly when I finally get around to re-reading everything.

Ok, off to write some more of the Dick/future!Damo fic that implanted itself in my brain last night while I slept... :D

Oooh. I'll be here waiting.

P.s. If they ever try to kill Dick we will gather together a terrible fangirl army and storm DiDio's evil headquarters. 'It was a bloodless coup... all smotherings!'

Hurrah! I'd make a good general, especially during certain times of the month ...

What *is* that first panel? Other than fodder for nightmares unrelated to Children of Earth? He's so hairy! And fashionless! More than usual, I mean.

I am, however, in love with his tiger/zebra striped red bicycle shorts. He looks like he's going to go tricking at a gay club. And the Superman-colored briefs. Sexy.

He's certainly gone through a number of looks.

Yes, they've actually grown on me. Well, not literally! I really need fic feature bicycle shorts.

Oh god, I've seen an odd scan or two of the mullet before, but I'm afraid these are going to haunt me in my sleep for weeks now. And man, is it obvious or what that we have a boy without an Alfred to pick out his clothes?

But the gratuitous manties shot really makes up for it all, I must say. Though I was so distracted I didn't notice at first that Dick doesn't appear to have any blankets on his bed other than the top sheet. Did his air conditioner break? Did he give his comforter away? Does he just he just happen to like sleeping mostly naked with no covers? (Note that I'm not complaining at all, of course).

No, I haven't been at all traumatised by Torchwood: Children of Earth. I'm perfectly stable and sane, stane and sable. ~paddles~

*sobs with renewed trauma* No, no. No bad things will happen to Dick. He'll be just fine and after Bruce comes back he'll go back to doing sexy Nightwing things. Because the Batfamily still needs Dick! They do! They need him, so he has to be fine. If we say it enough times, it has to be true, right?

People can always go on about his sexy behind or his legs or whatever, but for me it's always (meaning recently, since I started reading DC comics regularly) been about his hair. He has some of the nicest male hair in the DCU, as far as I can see. Always (appropriately) wind-tossed, sweaty, influenced-by-gravity, or whatever...but I really like his hair.

From scans I've seen, I like his New Teen Titans-era Robin/Nightwing do' best. His long hair (minus ponytail) is okay too, I guess, from what I see here. I suppose it was an era thing - didn't even Superman have long hair at this time?

Other thoughts:
The left-hand panel of the fifth scan made me smile. How much do I love the fact that he's on top of a roof, near a gargoyle, in civvies? I guess it's one place where he's comfortable... :) or maybe it's just a good place for a private conversation with Bruce. Not even Alfred can get up there easily :).

He BETTER have a future at DC post-Bruce's return. I don't know if he'll go back to being Nightwing (although that'd certainly be nice), but he better still be around in the DCU.

Snarky Dick Grayson is usually awesome Dick Grayson. :D I read Nightwing #142 recently, and he has some wonderful exchanges with Tim in it.

Oh yes, I love his hair, too. It always irritates me when the artists get his hair 'wrong'. I've said for years that he has the best hair in the DCU so I totally agree!

I really hope so, and I want Tim to be okay, too. It would be nice if Bruce came back and Dick stayed in Gotham for a while. I really can see the whole Batfamily acting as one giant shadow over Gotham.

Those two are brilliant together.
