Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Following Bruce Wayne's reported demise, this Grand Guignol miniseries shows the competition to fill his role. Dick Grayson, the original Robin, has established a separate crime-fighting identity as Nightwing, but now has donned the iconic cape and mask of Batman. Partnered with bratty, impatient 10-year-old Damian (son of the original Wayne), he wants to modernize Batman's equipment but maintain his high principles. Dick's successor as Robin, Jason Todd, now calls himself the Red Hood and believes that the way to reduce crime is to kill criminals as dramatically as possible. Unfortunately, the Red Hood's violent tactics bring reprisals in the form of the Flamingo, an incredibly vicious South American assassin who enjoys skinning and eating the faces of beautiful young women. Morrison's scripts use this dark material effectively, and the art—first by Quitely, then by a team of three—is dazzling. In this largely self-contained episode, Morrison expertly retools DC's old superhero machinery. When combined with Quitely, it nearly reaches the heights of the duo's previous All-Star Superman.

From Booklist

Recent issues of the comic book Batman have portrayed momentous developments, indeed. Bruce Wayne is dead, and erstwhile Robin Dick Grayson has replaced him as Batman. The new Robin is arrogant, 10-year-old upstart Damian, who’s both Bruce’s son and archvillain Ra’s al Ghul’s grandson. Morrison charts the new team’s first missions, as Grayson strives to guide headstrong Damian while tackling foes old (the Penguin) and new (Professor Pyg and his Circus of Strange). Complications arise from the reappearance of the Red Hood—another former Robin, Jason Todd, who battles crime more brutally than the new Dynamic Duo. In the first three of the six issues collected here, Morrison is joined by artist Frank Quitely, his collaborator on All-Star Superman. Their efforts here don’t reach the sublimity of that landmark work; unlike their extra-canonical Superman tales, these stories are restricted by the characters’ established continuity, and Quitely’s vivid visuals are less appropriate for the Dark Knight’s moody atmosphere. Still, these are the most accomplished, enjoyable printed Batman stories in many a year. --Gordon Flagg

4.0 out of 5 stars A great start to the series with iconic character replacements admirably filling in.
By Kindle Customer on August 11, 2019
Here I was, appalled by the travesty that is Final Crisis but just a few short months later (August 2009 vs March 2009 for Final Crisis issue 7) Grant Morrison delivers a strong beginning to the new Batman and Robin ongoing series. With Bruce Wayne dead and gone (actually lost at the beginning of time) Dick Grayson is there to fill his Batshoes with that annoying brat Damien as Robin. I admit I don't like Damien's character, it reeks too much of manga fanservice to me but Dick is my favorite. They clearly don't like each other and Robin even goes off on his own to get his ass thoroughly whooped later on but they have a duty of the mantle and they grudgingly accept the new status quo for the time being.

First three issues detail the first appearance of Professor Pyg and his Dollotrons and this character is good enough to periodically resurface here and there in the continuity and videogames. These are drawn by Frank Quitely who I'm not a big fan of but he gets the job done. However, I'm much more excited about the next story arc where we see the return of the Red Hood and his new sidekick Scarlet. These have excellent art by Philip Tan (who I coincidentally just praised for his fresh work in Marvel's Black Order) and he pulls out all the stops to make it shine. Gorgeous action and badass imagery all around.

There's also some overarching plot thrown in - the mysterious dominoes that hint at the manipulator behind the scenes and I'm eager to read more to see where it goes. Morrison's patent unintelligibility is kept on a tight leash here so this is definitely a recommend for any action comics lover out there.
