    Batman takes Bruce Wayne s corpse to a Lazarus pit Damian returns and he and Batman investigate clues to Bruce Wayne s whereabouts But who is Oberon Sexton and why is Damian acting so strangely Dick Grayson s run as Batman continues He and Damian seem less like chumps in this one but Bruce Wayne, even dead, still has them playing second fiddle.The stories are pretty good The Domino Killer case continues, Talia Al Ghul gets some screen time, and an old enemy of Dick s has a fairly prominent Batman takes Bruce Wayne s corpse to a Lazarus pit Damian returns and he and Batman investigate clues to Bruce Wayne s whereabouts But who is Oberon Sexton and why is Damian acting so strangely Dick Grayson s run as Batman continues He and Damian seem less like chumps in this one but Bruce Wayne, even dead, still has them playing second fiddle.The stories are pretty good The Domino Killer case continues, Talia Al Ghul gets some screen time, and an old enemy of Dick s has a fairly prominent role Still, it feels like it s mostly setting the stage for Bruce Wayne s inevitable returnthan anything else.It still has its moments, though, like the revelation of Oberon Sexton s identity and Damian s body getting usurped It could have used a consistent artist, though I m not a huge fan of Frank Quitly but his art gave the first one a unified feel This one feels really disjointed by comparison.Three stars but definitely on the low end of the threes

    3.5 starsThis wasn t bad at all, but you really need to read a few things and not just Batman and Robin Vol 1 Batman Reborn to understand what is going on in the story I m really looking forward to getting my hands on Batman Robin Vol 3 Batman Must Die There are quite a few unanswered questions that I m hoping will be addressed in the next volume I m crossing my fingers, but this is Morrison, so there is a distinct possibility that he will go off of his medication againThe biggest 3.5 starsThis wasn t bad at all, but you really need to read a few things and not just Batman and Robin Vol 1 Batman Reborn to understand what is going on in the story I m really looking forward to getting my hands on Batman Robin Vol 3 Batman Must Die There are quite a few unanswered questions that I m hoping will be addressed in the next volume I m crossing my fingers, but this is Morrison, so there is a distinct possibility that he will go off of his medication againThe biggest surprise was how much Damien grew on me in this volume I actually like him now Whodathunkit P.S This is what I wish someone would do for me on occasion If you re interested in reading about the new Batman and Robin and have been out of the loop for a while here is what I think you need to get your hands on first This is in no particular order, by the way.Batman Battle for the CowlBatman R.I.P.Batman Time and the Batman this one is pretty necessary Batman The Black Glove Ugh I hate to do this Final CrisisAlso, a small working knowledge of what was going on with Blackest Night wouldn t hurt, but it s not strictly necessary I had already read Batman The Return of Bruce Wayne, so some of this stuff probably madesense to me, but again, not necessary, since what s happening in this book is before Bruce s return.If it s been a looooong time since you ve cracked open anything about the Dark Knight, you might want to check out Batman Batman and Son, as well.And if you re interested in the red headed Bat Chick in the Lazarus pit Batwoman Elegy is a great place to start

    Amusingly disjointed, irresponsibly fun and outrageous, and atrociously silly these are the foremost adjectives I would describe Grant Morrison s story arcs entitled Blackest Knight and Batman vs Robin which this second volume was composed of I was a massive fan of the first volume Batman Reborn because those six issues are probably the most insanely crafted storylines I have ever read in a Batman series, and yet they were also able to impart something resonant when it comes to characterizati Amusingly disjointed, irresponsibly fun and outrageous, and atrociously silly these are the foremost adjectives I would describe Grant Morrison s story arcs entitled Blackest Knight and Batman vs Robin which this second volume was composed of I was a massive fan of the first volume Batman Reborn because those six issues are probably the most insanely crafted storylines I have ever read in a Batman series, and yet they were also able to impart something resonant when it comes to characterizations and thematic conflicts I originally intended to only read the first volume this year but since I have a week to spare before I get started on my December list, I decided to just jump right into the next six issues and I was glad I did because it was the most fun I had, particularly when everything about the stories just clicks with me easily There wasn t anything of notable depth for this volume In fact, most of the plot ideas are plain silly but it s the kind of silly that entertains Morrison was not pretentious in delivering these action packed tales which I quite appreciated because it kept everything light hearted and exciting for me to follow I don t even notice that it s not Bruce Wayne underneath that cowl but Dick Grayson This is set after the events of Final Crisis where Bruce Wayne was presumed dead It s in this volume when it was revealed that he is very much alive and was merely transported by Darkseid to some alternate dimension, and it s up to Dick, Damian and Alfred to find and retrieve him, but not without complications and the otherimportant missions to face as the Dynamic Duo.The inarguable bonus for me in picking up this series was the fact that I m able to enjoy Damian Wayne as Robin again after the months of heartache I experienced when he was tragically killed by Morrison himself something I m slowly forgiving him for these days in Batman Incorporated Due to his year long absence and death in the New 52 continuity, I tried my best to avoid any material that included him for a while Choosing to read him again in the comic book pages is honestly an act of courage, and a step towards accepting him back in my life as a beloved favorite character I know this all sounds laughable to you, but I love Damian Wayne in a way I never thought was possible because it was unexpected so losing him was like losing my own family That s not an exaggerated sentiment That s how it felt like when I watched him die I had to grieve him alongside Batman and the rest of his friends as I read and reviewed Tomasi issues as dutifully as I could six months ago That wasn t an easy task to do It was a very masochistic endeavor I even cried a lot.Now I was absolutely torn about him coming back in Tomasi s run but reading him here in Morrison s own version has made me realize how much I ve missed him after all, and that I do look forward to reading him again in New 52 This volume s last issue 12 provided a very insightful and brutally honest look at Damian s relationship wit his mother Talia al Ghul I ve talked about it in this review, so I won t repeat myself You can just read it by clicking the link Overall, if you are a Damian Wayne fan yourself, then I recommend Morrison s Batman and Robin It s fun, comedic and surprisingly sweet in some ways This one was illustrated by two artists, Cameron Stewart and Andy Clarke for the respective two story arcs There is a lot of dynamic and tantalizing panels and action sequences in their artwork which I guarantee will keep you engrossed as you turn the pages.I am ready forBatman and Robin stories both from the old and new continuity RECOMMENDED 8 10DO READ MY BATMAN COMICS REVIEWS AT

    New Batman Dick Grayson decides to haul Bruce Wayne s corpse to a Lazarus Pit in England to try and bring his mentor back from the dead Hilarity ensues resulting in a zombie version of Batman They also figure out that Bruce Wayne must be alive Shocking And he s been trapped in the past leaving clues in the history of the Wayne family and the design of Wayne manor yawn Time travel and Batman stories really shouldn t mix.I ve already done my bitching in my review of the first volume about New Batman Dick Grayson decides to haul Bruce Wayne s corpse to a Lazarus Pit in England to try and bring his mentor back from the dead Hilarity ensues resulting in a zombie version of Batman They also figure out that Bruce Wayne must be alive Shocking And he s been trapped in the past leaving clues in the history of the Wayne family and the design of Wayne manor yawn Time travel and Batman stories really shouldn t mix.I ve already done my bitching in my review of the first volume about how I d be farinvested in this storyline if Bruce Wayne was really worm chow, and Dick Grayson was permanently Batman I minterested in the story between Dick and Alfred dealing with Bruce s bastard son Damian as the new Robin rather than the notion that Bruce Wayne was running around the past in a pilgrim hat being his own grandfather or whatever other horseshit scenario that Morrison cooked up to explain how he supposedly survived.There s a good comic story lurking in here, but since the clock has now started on Bruce Wayne s rescue and return, I m even less interested now

    Dick Grayson heads to England with what he thinks is the corpse of Batman in a desperate attempt to locate a newly found lazarus pit and reanimate Bruce Wayne Damian Al Ghul has been taken by his mother Talia to have a new spine fitted after his battles in the last book but is the spine all its cracked up to be What s underneath Wayne Manor that s attracting the attentions of a devil worshipping cult And who s been killing off the members of The Black Glove The way they re being killed alm Dick Grayson heads to England with what he thinks is the corpse of Batman in a desperate attempt to locate a newly found lazarus pit and reanimate Bruce Wayne Damian Al Ghul has been taken by his mother Talia to have a new spine fitted after his battles in the last book but is the spine all its cracked up to be What s underneath Wayne Manor that s attracting the attentions of a devil worshipping cult And who s been killing off the members of The Black Glove The way they re being killed almost feels like a joke Grant Morrison picks up the story of Batman and Robin Vol 1 with a blistering pace From the opening scene in London which almost feels like a James Bond opening, to the final reveal of a masked character, this is possibly his best Batman book yet If you ve been following the side story of Bruce Wayne s journey through time in Morrison s The Return of Bruce Wayne , you ll get the references in the book and it s a really good companion piece to read alongside this one But even if you re not familiar with that book, this is a great standalone volume Cameron Stewart and Andy Clarke s artwork are brilliant throughout, proving themselves to be equal to the incredibly talented Frank Quitely who supplies the covers included here also It s really just a fun, well written, interesting Batman book, one of Grant Morrison s best From the first page to the last I was reading it so fast I had to go back and look at some of the individual scenes to appreciate themDevil worshippers, wonderfully daffy English superheroes, and a confrontation between Grayson and Damian what s not to like
