9. Batman: The Gauntlet (1997) – Written by Bruce Canwell, Art by Lee Weeks 

Neatly following on from the end of Dark Victory, The Gauntlet takes place during Dick Grayson’s final exam before he’s allowed to assume the mantle of Robin. The game is simple. He is sent out into Gotham and must evade capture by Batman until sunrise the next day. Of course, he runs afoul of some gangsters and ends up with a bounty on his head and the mafia on his tail.

This is very fun comic and a great introduction to Robin, a character who brings a little bit more humour and light into the usual, occasionally dreary Batman stories.
