In Nightwing #16, by Tim Seeley and Javier Fernandez, current Robin Damian Wayne discovers Nightwing's online popularity, and he's not thrilled about it. What really gets under Damian's skin is the assumption that Nightwing will eventually take the mantle of Batman for good. He also doesn't seem to love seeing Dick referred to with the hashtags #TheOriginalRobin and #BestRobin.

While the Golden Age established comics as a medium, the Silver Age was when comic book art really came into its own. And it's worth noting that comics' Silver Age corresponded with a wider cultural fascination with science fiction. The actual Space Race was in full swing, and everybody was thinking about rocket ships, alien monsters, and the wonders of science.

It doesn't happen often, but I always appreciate those rare stories where Batman leaves Gotham City and makes his way to the American South.
