Overview

From the award-winning team behind ALL-STAR SUPERMAN!

Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely, the creative team of ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, reunite to tell the adventures of the all-new Batman and Robin.

The Dark Knight has fallen, sacrificing himself in the Final Crisis to defeat the ultimate evil. Tim Drake has laid down the mantle of Robin to search the world for a sign that his mentor can be brought back from oblivion.

Now there’s a new Dynamic Duo in town.

Dick Grayson, the original Robin, has taken up the cape and cowl of his former partner, and Damian Wayne, the assassin-raised son of Bruce Wayne, has become a deadly new Robin — ready to fight crime by any means necessary. Together, this masked Odd Couple must stop a rising tide of villainy whose savagery and brutality are unlike anything Gotham City has ever seen.

They must also overcome a lethal pair of rival vigilantes with ties to their own tragic pasts — and stay away from each other’s throats long enough to succeed.

This volume collects Batman & Robin #1-6.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A fresh, yet still iconic, take on the character is shining forth in Gotham and on the comic shelves…. Brilliant [and] beautiful.”—AIN’T IT COOL NEWS
 
“Morrison and Quitely have the magic touch that makes any book they collaborate on stand out from the rest.”—MTV’s Splash Page
 
“Brilliantly executed.”IGN
Publishers Weekly
Following Bruce Wayne's reported demise, this Grand Guignol miniseries shows the competition to fill his role. Dick Grayson, the original Robin, has established a separate crime-fighting identity as Nightwing, but now has donned the iconic cape and mask of Batman. Partnered with bratty, impatient 10-year-old Damian (son of the original Wayne), he wants to modernize Batman's equipment but maintain his high principles. Dick's successor as Robin, Jason Todd, now calls himself the Red Hood and believes that the way to reduce crime is to kill criminals as dramatically as possible. Unfortunately, the Red Hood's violent tactics bring reprisals in the form of the Flamingo, an incredibly vicious South American assassin who enjoys skinning and eating the faces of beautiful young women. Morrison's scripts use this dark material effectively, and the art—first by Quitely, then by a team of three—is dazzling. In this largely self-contained episode, Morrison expertly retools DC's old superhero machinery. When combined with Quitely, it nearly reaches the heights of the duo's previous All-Star Superman.

Grant Morrison
Grant Morrison has been working with DC Comics for more than twenty years, beginning with his legendary runs on the revolutionary titles ANIMAL MAN and DOOM PATROL. Since then he has written numerous best-sellers — including JLA, BATMAN and New X-Men — as well as the critically acclaimed creator-owned series THE INVISIBLES, SEAGUY, THE FILTH, WE3 and JOE THE BARBARIAN. Morrison has also expanded the borders of the DC Universe in the award-winning pages of SEVEN SOLDIERS, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, FINAL CRISIS and BATMAN, INC., and he is currently reinventing the Man of Steel in the all-new ACTION COMICS.
         In his secret identity, Morrison is a “counterculture” spokesperson, a musician, an award-winning playwright and a chaos magician.

He divides his time between his homes in Los Angeles and Scotland.

    Highly Recommended

    At first I was Skeptical for Dick Grayson being Batman and Damian being Robin. Later it makes sense, because Dick was always Bruce's son, and Later you see how Dick is perfect for his version of Batman. Great stories inside.

    Morrison Magic!!!

    This is an excellent reason why DC is for the older reader. Morrison tackles the task of creating a new Batman and Robin team and spins the familiar dynamic on it's ear. My only complaint is that I am not a fan of Frank Quitely's art, but it is easily forgiven due to the fantastic writing of Morrison.

    New and improved Batman & Robin?

    Well, they're new but I don't know if they're improved. As usual Grant Morrison does his best to confuse readers while creeping them out at the same time. While this plot was actually something you could follow, it was still way too weird for a good Batman tale. Damian Wayne is still way to unbelievable to me and sometimes you couldn't tell if Dick or Bruce was under the cowl. The art was okay but not great. Overall, I expected to dislike this more than I did due to the creators involved. It was an average read that has me somewhat interested to read the next collection.
