beautiful art work, but miller needs to take note that this Batman is not the same as The Dark Knight Returns

All in all it was just okay. It was an interesting take on the batman/richard grayson story. The biggest flaw was, in my opinion, is that batman is almost to cruel. I get that batman is crazy, but i never imagined him as cruel. Expecially towards dick. I give this a 3 star rating because it was interesting and i enjoyed the art. Plus black canary was amazing.

Initially, I was pretty angry- this comic challenges everything I know about Batman and Robin, or better said, Bruce Wayne and Richard Grayson. If you are a die-hard fan of Batman, some of the things in this comic WILL annoy you. However, if you're patient and can look past the messed up actions of some of the characters we all know and love, you'll see this is an entertaining comic with funny scenes and an interesting take on the birth of the Robin persona. Don't let you're anger dissuade you from finishing it, as it almost did me. It's not a bad read, and it didn't deserve to get ripped to shreds by critics. The author just took a very big risk that wasn't well received. I consider this alternate universe, as all serious Batman fans should.

All-Star Bat­man and Robin The Boy Won­der by Frank Miller is a graphic novel about the super­heroes. The art by Jim Lee and Scott Williams is amazing. All-Star Bat­man and Robin The Boy Won­der by Frank Miller is a comic book for grown ups. There are curses, unabashed sex, and the hero who keeps being referred to and refers to him­self as “the G-ddamn Bat­man”. A nice touch I thought. This is a fun book which tack­les Batman’s mul­ti­ple per­sonas head on. How can a book about a maniac run­ning around in tights dressed as a bat while putting a teenage boy in con­stant dan­ger have mul­ti­ple per­sonas you ask? Let me tell you. Miller likes to play with his heroes. They are not per­fect and love what they’re doing a bit too much. This ver­sion of Bat­man is hav­ing a blast, he runs around stomp­ing crim­i­nals, bust­ing crooked cops, hurt­ing rapists and impress­ing women. In fact, at some point Bat­man says he’s hav­ing so much fun he hasn't slept for days. Much like Super­man who’s alter ego is Clark Kent, Bat­man takes over Bruce Wayne. Yet Bat­man is sim­ply a vig­i­lante at this point, he beats the hell out of peo­ple and keeps going. He has no rela­tion­ships, no chal­lenges, no cares – just liv­ing on the edge and tak­ing every­one with him. I liked this aspect of the story. We always see our heroes restrained, it’s fun to see them go all out for ones. For those who don’t know, Robin was intro­duced in the comics to keep them light because Bat­man was, well… The Dark Knight. How­ever, Miller intro­duces Robin (Dick Grayson) as a griev­ing orphan being a ward to a drill sergeant who doesn’t care about any­thing except get­ting the job done. Miller proves that The Dark Knight has also dark humor, extra grim in fact. There is no-one per­fect in this book, Bat­man is flawed, Robin is flawed, even Jim Gor­don has a mis­tress. Actu­ally every­one in Gotham City are a bunch of crooks and crim­i­nals, with or with­out a badge or a cape. Nev­er­the­less, this is a fun, excit­ing, humor­ous and quick-paced book – just don’t give it to the kids

While it's certainly not the best Batman story ( and certainly not Frank Miller's greatest hit either ) I find "All Star Batman and Robin" to be an entertaining and funny story. The thing people forget about this story is that it's not supposed to be mainstream Batman, it's Frank Miller's own personal vision of what Batman is. Plus, Batman's really badass in it, even more badass than he is the mainstream comics. And I don't think that I have to mention Jim Lee's awesome artwork ( although I may have mentioned it accidently right there ). However, the story is not without it's downsides. Instead of the brother- like relationship they share in the comics ( no, I don't think Bruce is a surrogate father to Robin ) Batman is somewhat abusive to Robin ( or maybe it's just a tough live thing, i don't really know ). But even that dosen't make me hate the story as others do. So, "All Star Batman and Robin" is a good, very enjoyable story. Just know that it's not the best.

I'm not a big fan of Miller/Batman stories. TDKR is antiquated and does not fit into the modern continuity that fits in DC's Universe. I was hoping this would turn me around on Miller's Batman works. I want to like this and I'm trying to, but it's hard for me to get past a maniacal Bruce Wayne that kidnaps a traumatized little boy. IMO opinion this book makes Bruce out to be an unsympathetic, un-compassionate sociapathic punk.

There is credit where credit is due. Although this Batman doesn't quite match the one presented in Dark Knight Returns and Year One he is certainly the one from the Dark Knight Strikes Again. This Batman may be insane and evil but the ending brings about Miller's Batman and Robin relationship full circle.

I¿m not going to lie. The main reason I bought this book was because it was drawn by Jim Lee, comic artist extraordinaire. For that reason alone this book is worth picking up. His artwork is detailed, realistic, energetic and emotional. Usually an artist won¿t give you all of those together, but that is why Jim Lee is one of the greats. There is a story on top of all that art and it ain¿t half bad. It is written by Frank Miller, who some would say is a quintessential Batman writer. You may recognize his name as the creator of 300 and Sin City. This guy has some chops, dark and dirty chops. This story paints Batman as a guy who is a few marbles shot. Which we know has to be true, the guy dresses up as a bat. This story really brings that personality to the forefront. Reviewed by Chris for Book Sake.
