Synopsis for Batman: "The Land Behind the Light"

Dick Grayson is reading a book, waiting for Batman to return, but as the time passes, Dick starts feeling tired.

Later, Batman arrives and tells Robin that they are going to pay a visit to the mysterious Dr. Marko who has discovered the way to travel to the fourth dimension. Following the doctor through the portal, the duo find themselves in a Land of Giants where they are made prisoners of the tyrannic Gorl. However, they manage to escape and after a while they find themselves back with Dr. Marko and with the giant's enemies, the Dwarfs. Batman and Robin aid the dwarfs in their war against the giants and the dwarfs win the battle, but one giant stays behind, traps Robin and is about to crush him.

Then Richard Grayson is awakened by Bruce Wayne and he finds out the whole adventure was a nightmare, as he had fallen asleep while reading about Dwarfs and Giants.
