** It's arguably more of a direct sequel to Creator/GrantMorrison's ''[[ComicBook/GrantMorrisonsBatman Batman, Incorporated]]''. It features the St. Hadrian's School introduced in that run, follows up on the story of [[spoiler: the Netz family]], and Spyral is given more exploration (they were name dropped as the Hood's employer, but all we knew was they were concerned with Batman's secret identity), which was simply a misdirection from the series real villain: Leviathan/Talia al Ghul.

In March 2016, it was revealed that, as part of the ComicBook/DCRebirth initiative, ''Grayson'' will be spun back off into ''ComicBook/{{Nightwing}}'', with Dick returning to his former role, and Tim Seeley will stay as writer. Helena, however, will be part of the ''Batgirl and the Birds of Prey'' series.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: [[spoiler: Alia]]. She [[spoiler: returns to frame Dick Grayson and start a spy war]], was apparently [[spoiler: working for Doctor Netz]] and is even set up as maybe being the [[spoiler: new Nemesis]]. She disappears from the story and wasn't touched on again here, or in ''Nightwing: Rebirth'', which was basically an epilogue to ''Grayson''.

* AlternateCompanyEquivalent: Fans noticed very early that Dick has basically become ComicBook/BuckyBarnes: after his death was faked in a major crossover event, he used it as a cover to free himself up for the kind of heavy-duty espionage his mentor can't do, but the similarities end there.

''Winter Soldier'' was spy noir and had a much darker tone, whereas ''Grayson'' is more akin to a ''Bond'' movie with its more playful style.

Bucky's current title is wacky space adventures, anyway, and he was originally created as Marvel's equivalent of Dick's trope-making KidSidekick, so it fits.

* SequelSeries: Sort of. While the series technically is one to ''Nightwing'' due to the 30th issue of that series essentially being ''Grayson'''s #0 and being the "next stage" in Dick's life, it does not use any of the supporting cast of ''Nightwing'', nor does it require you to read that series, other than the 30th issue. It's arguably more of a direct sequel to Creator/GrantMorrison's ''[[ComicBook/GrantMorrisonsBatman Batman, Incorporated]]''.

** The series wasted no time launching the Helena Bertinelli/Dick Grayson ship, or rather relaunching it, since before the New 52, the two had briefly dated.
** And they receive a RelationshipUpgrade in the [[ComicBook/TheNew52FuturesEnd alternate future]] tie-in.

** However, the series pushes the Dick/Babs ship ''even harder'', with it being made clear that Dick loves Barbara.
