Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Powerful effects and sharp characterization."—Publishers Weekly

"Watching [Robin] struggle to reconcile his mother's cold-blooded anger with his father's compassion and nobility (and not a little outright arrogance from both sides of the family tree) has been one of the highlights of the comics reading experience in recent years."—Maxim

"This is the kind of Batman story I like to read: an actual mystery with an emotional hook."—The Onion AV Club
