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.

Truly ominous. Knowing in the end that Jason Todd would die was a mere footnote in the entirety of the full story. The emotions were tense throughout, and the suspense was thrilling. Truly a collection must have.

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!

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.

This story was terrible when originally published, and is known more for the gimmick of having a 900 number that fans could call and vote on the outcome of the story. The only good thing about this story is that it lead to an interesting stretch of stories as Batman dealt with the fallout from these events. But this story itself is pretty bad.

This is a great story that no batman fan should be without.
