Batman: "You almost sneaked up on me. Not many people can do that."
Spoiler: "So I can count on you if I ever need a character reference?"

An extra-sized issue launches a 3-part European adventure, featuring Lady Shiva and King Snake! Distraught over recent events, Tim Drake leaves Gotham behind, embarking on a European journey to clear his mind and continue the martial-arts training he began years ago. Drawn to a mysterious girl who needs his help, Tim is unaware that his old enemy, King Snake has hired Lady Shiva to kill not only the girl, but anyone who tries to help her.

Summary of Stephness: During all these events, in Gotham City, Tim Drake is missing. Jack Drake visits Bruce Wayne for news before announcing the bad news to Ariana. Bruce becomes Batman, and is worrying over Tim's situation when he sees Stephanie, who asks him where Robin is. Batman orders her to forget being Spoiler once and for all. Steph is not impressed.
