Great Story Arc in the Short Lived Batman Reborn
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on October 7, 2016
Winick's short, but sweet, take on the all too short-lived Batman Reborn. After the Battle for the Cowl story arc, Dick Grayson is left to inherit the mantle of Batman now that Bruce Wayne has been killed by Darkseid (in Final Crisis). Winick's story opens the new era of the on going Batman series with this clash between the former Nightwing and Two-Face. I personally loved Batman Reborn and wished it would have lasted longer before Bruce's inevitable return (and I also always hated that Bruce hadn't died but was merely "lost in time"). The idea that Nightwing not only has to prove to himself that he is worthy of Batman's title, but also that he must prove it to the criminals of Gotham (in this case Two-Face) is a terrific take for the story. While Batman Reborn was axed too soon in favor of resurrecting Bruce, this was one terrific collection.
