Is there a specific issue where Dick steps down as Batman?

Just got some new 52 batman trades and there was no mention of it so far. Haven't got the Nightwing one yet so, I guess it could be in there?

I don't think so. There was one mention of him filling in as Batman for a year but he's been Nightwing in every actual issue in the New 52.

Well, that is only so far as I know. I only started Nightwing recently so I'm basing my answer off of what I've read on the 'net.

No. It's rarely referenced already, let alone a issue where Dick steps down as Batman. Nightwing #1 referenced him being Batman for a year and some of Batman Inc. :/

Ya i dont know why they just didnt retcon that 6 years was already to short and we are to believe even thou Dick has only been a crime fighter for 4 years not to mention still a teenager and he is some how worthy to take up the mantle i dont think so

The five year plan is a stupid idea in the first place, either make it longer, like ten years since heroes have been around, or don't specify at all.

@the_stegman: i know right Batman spends only a year as batman and he suddenly wants to take some teenager in its just silly

No there isn't, which i'm still just as pissed about now as I was when I read the first issue. Gives no sense of closure to the situation at all, when Dick finally taking on the cowl was a very important step.
