Some Bruce-not-being-mean-to-Steph Yaseen101 requested some scenes of Bruce-not-being-unbearable to Steph. I can think of like 4 instances in total, because the majority of Steph/Bruce interactions are by Chuck Dixon, Jon Lewis and Bill Willingham, all members of the Batdick family. The first one is in Green Arrow #5, but I found Steph really, really annoying there, what with the snarking after every. Single. Line. The second one is here, by Devin Grayson and Roger Robinson in the excellent Batman: Gotham Knights series. This issue is #22.
The issue, a tie-in to "Joker's Last Laugh", begins with a man being eaten by cochroaches who form a body identical to his. Barbara points out how Bruce has recently alienated every member of his family , so he'll need to call in the reserves for help.
Our plucky hero follows this suspicious man for a while, until a building blows up and a lone man walks out it alive.
Steph is a very chatty lady, as you can tell.
He then tries to kill Steph. Bruce does not appreciate this, nor does Steph.
Steph's dialogue comes off as awkward sometimes, and she's a bit more chatty then normal, but I really like this issue. Because darn it, Batman is capable of respectful interaction.
