Yunno, Grant Morrison wasn't the first person to think that putting Dick Grayson in the cape and cowl was a good idea. Back in 1994 after the Gotham-shattering "Knights" trilogy, Bruce Wayne stepped aside and asked his former sidekick to take over for a storyline called "Prodigal." This episode, I take a look at the first two parts of Prodigal, in Batman #512 and Batman: Shadow of the Bat #32 where Dick and Tim take on Killer Croc and Scarface, and Two-Face escapes from prison.
