If you dont read comics then I'm not sure you'll be able to anwser these questions.
But how do you feel about the progression of Batman Comics not their quality, but like
Dick becoming Batman?
And in general did you like NightWing as a character?
Do you like Red Robin?
How do you feel about time passing in comics, I noticed the time stamps, but I'm not sure if thats there to keep track with the comics or, because of your future plans.

And what I meant by time passing is do you feel that it should in comics?
Should Batman not appear to have aged since his introduction or even most recent reintroduction?
Should sidekicks one day be allowed to become more?

1. I'm not hugely familiar with current comics. I've been a bit too busy on the series.

2. I do feel that if ANYONE should replace Bruce Wayne as Batman, it should be Dick Grayson.

3. I like Nightwing.

4. I'm not familiar with Red Robin.

5. I personally think time should pass. (That's what I've tried to do in the past on Captain Atom and Gargoyles.)

6. The timestamps aren't simply to keep track with our Young Justice comics, though that's a tasty side benefit. But we were ALWAYS planning to have them to ground the show in the moment and allow fans to get how much time has passed between episodes. It's the next logical step from what I tried to do on Spectacular Spider-Man.

7. Yes. One way or another.

8. Aging - with adults, as opposed to kids or teenagers -- is or at least can be a subtle thing. But, yes, I think he should age.

9. Watch the series.

In the future, please NUMBER your questions.
