Superman/Batman #76 [2010]

Following the events of Final Crisis, Superman brings the body of Bruce Wayne to Doctor Mid-Nite of the Justice Society of America and brings his cape and cowl to Richard Grayson within the Batcave. A private funeral is held by the core member of the Justice League without uniforms and Clark attends without his signature glasses. The confrontation between Superman and Grayson brought an intense moment as Superman loses his cool after the loss of both his adopted father Jonathan Kent and his friend Bruce Wayne. 

Judd Winick does an incredible job telling the transition story between the Bruce Wayne Batman and the Richard Grayson Batman including how the change affected Superman. Winick portrays Richard Grayson as the voice of reason when he was confronted by Superman within this terrific stand-alone issue.
