This issue really saddened me. I’ve loved a majority of the first fifteen issues of this series, and was really intrigued by Nicieza’s Hit List storyline. But this issue felt like two or three well-paced issues crammed into one so Red Robin can sync up with The Return Of Bruce Wayne. A series that I’m in no way excited for.
I will add this to Batman, Batman and Robin, and Detective as Batbooks that I’ve dropped this year. Maybe after some time away, I can come back and find The Return Of Bruce Wayne story interesting, but after RIP and Bruce Wayne’s limp time traveling journey, I just can’t get excited about any of the Batbooks. It’s unfortunate that they feel the need to drag down all the side books, too. (And, yes, Froggulper, I’m aware that Drake has been part of the search for Wayne since issue one of Red Robin, but they were starting to establish a side arc that intrigued me much more than the time traveling, and I’m sad that they’re rushing out of it so quickly.)
