Probably the 2nd best of the new 52 Batman runs, after Snyder's Batman, Batman&Robin has an interesting villain with a fairly intricate motive and plan. There is a lot of emotion intertwined into the plot, rather than just "Robin, let's go beat this guy up!" Ample appearances by Alfred sweeten the deal. I'm giving it 4/5, just because it wasn't as memorable as Batman, in my opinion. But, I think it deserves 4.5 stars.

A very good story thats more slower then a normel batman story yet really digs in to the dynamic between the two characters never boring

A decent beginning to one of the many Batman titles in the DC Universe's New 52 campaign. The story revolves around the tumultuous relationship between Bruce Wayne and his son, Damian. Damian, who is training alongside Batman as Robin does not like he's father's rules--especially the one where he can't kill those who deserve it. As Batman struggles to educate and connect emotionally with Damian, an enemy from Bruce's past shows up to drive a wedge between the father and son. The enemy, however, connects Bruce to Damian in ways that no one expected.Tomasi's story is good and Gleason art is decent. I think that it's probably hard to write any Batman comic right now since there are so many in the DCU, and Scott Snyder has established himself as the dominant Batman writer. Tomasi, however, does a decent job here.

Not only is it a whole new twist on the dynamic duo, but it gives some insight on the reason why Batman has only one rule when fighting crime. It's a great read.
