    Not bad

    I liked the idea of joker actually hurting the bat. The brutallity of the whole act still gives me shivers.The story is good but I'm not a fan of the art. It serves it's purpose but gives a dated feel. It's also note worthy that this edition gomes with "A lonely place of dying" which is where Tim Drake becomes the third Robin after helping the first Robin (Nightwing now).So it's basically all Robins in this one. If you are a big batman fan this should be in your collection. I mean the cover alone is one of the most iconic images of batman, and it's worth it just to see batman slug superman and almost break every bone in his hand. Good stuff.

    Batman: A Death in the Family shows us the death of Jason Todd,

    Batman: A Death in the Family shows us the death of Jason Todd, the second robin. The storyline isn't that great with some outrageous situations, but the book makes up for it with A Lonely Place of Dying! It shows Tim Drake become the third Robin. Two graphic novels in one is a must buy!

    Batman and Robin

    I didn't really want to see Jason bludgeoned to death, but this goes along with Batman Year 3 which I recently read, exploring Batman's reaction to Jason's death. A Lonely Place of Dying, included in this tpb, further explores Batman's response to losing Robin. Tim Drake arrives on the scene. He has figured out Bruce and Dick's secrets, and he is convinced Batman needs a Robin. He pleads with Dick to give up being Nightwing and become Robin again. This story (along with Year 3 which takes place between A Death in the Family and A Lonely Place of Dying, but is not included in this tpb) has made me a fan of Marv Wolfman.
