This ticks all the boxes for me as a "Grail" piece - the first comic page where Dick Grayson, who had shed his superhero identity as Robin the Boy Wonder, adopts his new identity as Nightwing (which he holds to this day).

As a 20 year old finishing my sophomore year in college, this story line following Dick journey of getting out from under the shadow of his "father" (the last part of "Batman and...") and becoming his own man resonated with me on so many levels. I can hardly believe it's been 34 year since Nightwing came on the scene...

This killer, historic bifurcated splash page by gorgeous George Perez also introduces Jericho in costume for the first time.

The moment the photo of this page came across my phone screen, I knew this piece had to be mine.

Many thanks to Nick B for spying this one and helping to negotiate the purchase from across the country (me being in LA and the page being in NYC).

Grail piece indeed! Stunning! Was there any words unfmder they name paste ups? Curious if they originally were going to have different names. This is one original page I would love to own.

Nope - nothing under the paste ups - I imagine they were just copying the logos that had been designed (similar stat is placed on the Nightwing character design in my other gallery).
