Editorial Reviews

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.)

    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.
