The first issue of Batman and Robin with Bruce in the cowl and Damian as Robin must be something we’ve all been waiting for since Grant Morrison introduced us to Damian in Batman and Son, right?

Well finally, we get to see this relationship develop. Batman and his son, battling villains, or is it? We get a glimpse at a supercrooked who can turn himself invisible and break the limbs out of a supermuscled mask vigilante like it were twigs. Then it moves on to Bruce and Damian preparing to go out but first, Bruce educates a bored Damian into why and how he became Batman in the first place. Then shit hits the fan when crooks steal radioactive fuel from an University and Damian acts recklessly with passion instead of thinking “what might happen if I do this?”.

The overall issue felt great, especially after the average last issues we’ve had of B&R. Tomasi has great ideas and I really enjoyed the dialogues, especially those between the three brothers just cracked me up. The only drawback is I had no idea who the supermuscled guy dressed like Batman in Moscow was and why we see him get killed by this NoBody villain?

The art of Gleason is marvelous to look at, this is what I expect my comics to look like! It’s not J.H. Williams III good looking, but it’s quite good nonetheless and surely wayyyy better than what Greg Tocchini served us in the last few issues of B&R…
