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. (Apr.)
