Family is family
If you close your eyes and make believe (and put your fingers in your ears)
No, it just doesn't work
Stop giving these things so much thought! You're ruining it!!
I think if anything is centred around Damian, he is the only one you can see interacting with everyone else, he is also the only one that seem to take in account everybody else.

Yes, it is. Unfortunately. I love all of the supporting characters: Dick, Barbra, Jason, Selina and Kate.
I feel oblidged to read all of the Bat books because of the constant criss crossing of story threads. If DC could break out of this mold and just let me read these characters without having to buy all of Bruce's dull as hell books, I'd be a much happier camper.
I'm all for disolving the family. Can we get a Schism up in here?
Freedom is the ability to live without fear of persecution. Nothing more, and certainly nothing less.
Inc feels like the same family, but yeah, I don't get the impression that any of the characters are close at all in the new books. Outside of Bruce, Damian, and Alfred, that is.
Even with Gordon, something feels off to me. Him being younger, and also, quite frankly, a very weak character in Snyder's Batman, it doesn't feel like the same Gordon/Batman dynamic to me.
Yeah, Gordon is so weak and clingy to Batman it hurts to read.
I miss the good old days when Gordon and Batman hated each-other.
I think there's still *just* enough there for it to be considered a family, especially if you focus on the relationship between Dick and Bruce (part of that could easily be a reluctance, on my part, to accept the complete revamp of Batman continuity, if I focus on Tomasi and Robinson I can ignore the reboot )
Any Dream worth Having Is A Dream worth Fighting For.
I would like to say for the record that this is the FIRST TIME I've withheld dong when someone was so desperately asking for some.

(However, contrast that with Batman Inc issue 4, where the family really is being brought together...and now (temporarily) being 'pulled apart'.)
