This is seriously one of my favorite stories. I love love love the Batboys at home being a nutty but loving family. I know comics are about adventure but I need my hanging-out times in between!
From the very first shot of Dick giving Tim noogies and chasing each other around and getting popcorn it's just fantastic. I love the sense you get here of Dick, Tim and Bruce outside of Nightwing, Robin and Batman. Especially the way everybody at WE knows Dick etc. You get the sense of their whole civilian life as a family.
But Bruce still remains totally ridiculous at times--not telling the boys he's hypnotizing himself to forget his life. Not to mention the character he has in his head for Bruce Wayne, a guy too dumb to know that his own building has stairs. He calls this guy Bruce Wayne, but of course he's really not. (Love in the car where the boys are all "Are we being bugged? Are we speaking in code? Should I make the Bat ears again?")
I love these guys! This is why I read this entry after the ROTJ one. I like to remind myself my little family is still safe. (Err...except for BftC.)
