Shocked and devastated by the death of his son Damian, Batman suddenly finds himself without a Robin…and without direction in a world that no longer seems to make sense.
Now, the members of Batman’s extended family will rally to his side and try to temporarily fill the void in his life. But can even these friends, family members and lovers help Batman forgive himself for the greatest tragedy he’s faced? Or will his own guilt finally become the one enemy the Dark Knight can’t defeat?
The bestselling acclaimed creative team of Peter Tomasi (FOREVER EVIL: ARKHAM WAR) and Patrick Gleason (GREEN LANTERN CORPS) explore Batman’s life after losing his partner…and his son. BATMAN AND ROBIN: REQUIEM FOR DAMIAN collects issues #18-23, including the critically acclaimed “silent issue”.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I had been waiting for this volume ever since hearing that Damian Wayne was no longer going to be in Batman and Robin. The volume starts out great with the "silent issue" which sets the story for the book and shows the reasoning behind the other issues in the volume. The volume then carries on with a great variety as the issues go from "batman and robin" to "batman and Nightwing", "batman and red hood" and other heroes (and villains) that are in the Bat-universe. Unfortunately the big event that this tails from is in Volume 2 of "Batman Incorporated" but the issue "Batman and nightwing" (included in this volume) gives enough details to show what happened. I highly recommend getting this volume. Batman and Robin is a great series and this volume is amazing. Amazing art and a great story.
