    1. A 80% Very GoodNotes A buddy cop horror show in pulpy technicolor, it finds voice in freakish foes, bloody violence and twisted reflection.


    2. Beware villains Here comes Batman Robin This TPB edition collects Batman Robin 1 6 featuring two storylines Batman Reborn and Revenge of the Red Hood.Creative Team Writer Grant MorrisonIllustrators Frank Quitely Philip TanLEGACY AND SYNERGYI enjoyed comic book runs where the status quo is challenged, therefore I knew that I will like a lot this title where Dick Grayson now is Batman and Damian Wayne became the new Robin.So, it s Batman Robin, but not the usual crimefighter partners that people u [...]


    3. The Dynamic Duo are back Batman and Robin No, Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely ray Batman s dead I know, I know, le sigh, cue eye rolling, etc But after his death in Final Crisis, a lot of great comics followed The Return of Bruce Wayne, this great series as well as Scott Snyder s The Black Mirror, culminating with Batman Incorporated While Bruce is temporarily away, Dick Grayson steps up to don the cowl and become the new Batman with surly sidekick Damian Wayne as his Robin.Grant Morrison gives [...]


    4. If Grant Morrison has ever written a crappy comic, I don t want to know about it This volume is about Robins, past and present The current Batman is Dick Grayson, Robin 1, who is taking over for the dead missing Bruce Wayne His Robin is Damian, Batman s son with Tahlia al Ghul He s a ten year old raised by assassins He s a mechanical genius and an adept crime fighter He s also violent, surly, uncooperative and contemptuous Good luck, Dick.The other Robin is Jason Todd, now the Red Hood Jason was [...]


    5. Grant Morrison took his medicines probably drugs and gives us two new, original and badass dynamic duos at the price of one Dick Damian Red Hood Scarlet Just imagine David Lynch under hallucinogens directing Adam West s Batman tv series to make yourself an idea of what is waiting for you between these pages just beware this is not the Dark Knight you used to read And the cast of freakshow Gotham villains was just much bloodthirsty and disturbing than usual.A good and weird read, but if you are [...]


    6. Batman Reborn In their first case as Batman Robin, Dick Grayson and Damian Wayne take on Professor Pyg and the Circus of the Strange.I ll be honest, despite reading comics off and on for the last 30 ish years, I haven t read all that many Batman comics When I heard Grant Morrison was doing the Batman monthly, that s when I got on board Batman and Robin is Morrison at his best.Remember when Bane broke Batman s back and they replaced him with someone who wasn t Dick Grayson Well, Morrison didn t m [...]


    7. The Batman is dead Long live the Batman.Grant Morrison and frequent artistic collaborator Frank Quitely gives us the first arc of entirely new take on the Dark Knight.Morrison has charted Batman s adventures the past few years and along the way gave the Caped Crusader a son, a league of Batmen and a super secret identity called the Batman of Zur en arrh This led to his fateful encounter with dark god Darkseid in Final Crisis which resulted in Bruce Wayne trapped in the time stream This gave form [...]


    8. I m not a member of the cult of Grant Morrison I liked what he did with the X Men a few years back, but I didn t make it through the last giant re boot of the DC Universe that he played a huge role in His All Star Superman left me scratching my head, and his previous Batman stories left me cold Part of that was due to my lack of patience with a comic publisher killing a major character Anyone who thought that Bruce Wayne was actually going to stay dead should email me your credit card numbers im [...]


    9. This new series is right after three previous graphic novels Batman R.I.P , Final Crisis and Fight for the Cowl People who follow the many graphic novels probably have an idea of things but spoilers are below.A new Batman and Robin are in town The new Batman is none other than Dick Grayson a la Nightwing and before that the first Robin and Bruce Wayne s ten year old son, Damian Wayne who is the grandson of Ra s al ghul and the son of the villain s daughter, Talia It s a new team that has kinks t [...]


    10. Ok, superheroes are new to me, so I have a little less patience with them Batman here, very interesting, bad guys in this series SUPER AWESOME Robin Kick this kid in the head SHEESH.


    11. Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths ReviewsBruce Wayne is dead So get ready folks, cause there is a new Batman and Robin in town and things are about to heat up Now, since we all know Bruce Wayne won t stay in the hereafter for long, we can sit back without any angst or sorrow and enjoy the brief tenure of the new Batman Dick Grayson a.k.a Nightwing and the first Robin who has donned the caped crusaders cowl Joining him as Robin is none other than Bruce Wayne s own ten year old son, Damian Wayne [...]


    12. In Grant Morrison s re imagining of Batman and Robin , Batman Reborn features Nightwing Dick Grayson and former first Robin as the new Batman, taking up the mantle from Bruce Wayne after the events that followed Final Crisis, Batman RIP and Battle for the Cowl This first volume collects six issues comprising of two story arcs that are sure to tantalize and excite readers, both long time Bat fans and novices alike Morrison, collaborating with artists Frank Quitely and Philip Tan, has offered a va [...]


    13. What a gruesome and disturbing outing this is While I enjoy Dick Grayson as Batman, this one fell a bit flat For one thing, how many new villains do they want to introduce in one comic book For another, how obnoxious must Damian become before Dick Grayson just caves his despicable little skull in The change in art midway though the book was a bit jarring, even though I much preferred the second artist s work And did I mention that this book is gruesome and disturbing If you want to read a graphi [...]


    14. Holy Smokes Batman A Grant Morrison Batman story I Like Wait, noLOVE What in the fucking world Listen I don t like most of Grant s stories I believe he took too many drugs when younger and creates deep stories that aren t really that deep but just try to be confusing and people think that s deep Kind of how people still think Man of Steel has a deeper message when in reality it just throws it in your face, and it s shit Anyway why is Batman and Robin good Well for multiple reasons We got a new t [...]


    15. I really like Dick Grayson as Batman and Damian Wayne as Robin the Boy Wonder They make a great and lively crime fighting duo despite Dick being uncertain of himself and Damian constantly being a brat Not to mentionRed Hood and Scarlet I justke Red Hood so much even since I heard about his story from Under the Hood fangirl s screams After Batman R.I.P, Grant Morrison continues to prove himself a great story teller for Batman s tales, this guy really knows what he is doing although I don t always [...]


    16. Batman Reborn didn t blow me away as the acclaim suggested it would, although admittedly i m already familiar with Damian Wayne s journey and his interactions with Dick Grayson from the New 52 onwards Despite reading this early character development out of order, the dynamic between the new Batman and Robin at the time is refreshing and there s a natural chemistry between the pair that leads to both interesting conflicts and amusing exchanges.This is also a relatively simple story by Grant Morri [...]


    17. Whatever happened to you, it helped make you special, understand Following the events of Batman R.I.P and Final Crisis, Bruce is gone I ll leave it at that Dick Grayson and Damian Wayne take up the mantle of Batman and Robin to replace Bruce Wayne and Tim Drake, who s become Red Robin While no duo is as classic as Bruce and Dick, this one is a close second for me As you probably know, Damian was my least favorite Robin, until this book He s now tied with Jason He s still kind of a mean, headstro [...]


    18. I do love a bit of Grayson as Batman, he definitely lightens the tone of Batman, he s not as brooding and he is 100% nicer to Alfred, and i m all about that Plus the contrast between Grayson and the little shit bag that is Damian works really well together I liked the villains in this who all seem to have a face fetish with Flamingo eating them and Pyg gluing some creepy ass cabbage patch doll face to people it s just the stuff of nightmares I m not sure about Jason Todd in this he just reminded [...]


    19. I really like Dick Grayson as Batman He brings a very different feel to the cowl Bruce s son, Damian, makes a good Robin for Dick s Batman He s not quite the infuriating little brat he was when he first showed up, though he s still a brat They re great characters, with a great dynamic, and their first two storylines make total sense Of course Dick Grayson would have to face a killer carnival Of course Jason Todd would show up again In fact, everything is going great, and then Professor Pyg shows [...]


    20. I thought Morrison did a pretty good job with this story I was fully engaged it the plot, and I loved seeing Jason again My biggest complaint would have to be the weirdo pig guy as a villain He was almost too strangeeven for a comic book Then again, it is Morrison, so what did I expect


    21. In Batman Reborn , Grant Morrison continues the landmark run that he started on the main Batman title Picking up after Final Crisis and Batman Battle for the Cowl, we find Richard Grayson the original Robin taking up the mantle of Batman after the presumed death of Bruce Wayne He s joined by an all new Robin, Damian Wayne Batman s son from his affair with Talia Al Ghul see Batman Son of the Demon If you re up to date on all these developments, then you will get the most out of this book If not, [...]


    22. I didn t really like this as much as I expected to For some reason, I prefer Tim Drake to all other Robins and he s the only one not in this, so that s not helping anything.The character dynamics were interesting I liked seeing what Dick, Jason, and Damian go through without Bruce The villains weren t really compelling, but the tension between Batman Robin and Red Hood Scarlet was a highlight, their conflicting views of justice being one of the major plot points.The artwork was good, but there w [...]


    23. Good writing check Good art check Something s missing tho sense of Batman s menace or superhuman strategies Morrison s trademark weirdness or sense of humour A story with real balls or anything other than plotline of the week Feel kinda disappointed by the book, don t know why Second reading a few months later and I do like the menacing villains that Morrison Quitely came up with That makes me feel charitable towards the book, but still wondering what s missing.


    24. Bruce wayne is dead, or at least he was temporarily, and in that time his long time protege Dick Grayson dons the mantel of the Dark Knight The thing about Morrison is that when he is good, he is very good, and in Batman and Robin , he is very good Morrison gives Grayson his own voice as Batman, subtely chaning his MO to reflect Grayson s personality and former life as a cop This is a Batman that lacks some of the sheer mental brillance of the former wearer of the cowl and knows it His determina [...]


    25. Honestly I have never read a batman comic before, just seen the cartoon and movies, I know the general storyline of batman but this is my first time getting introduced to the multiple Robin s It was very interesting and made a lot of sense I love what Grant Morrison did The story and art were very well done, I enjoyed the many villains and the Red Hood arc I look forward to the rest of this series.

    27. My Brief Bookshelf Overview 2 and a half stars, hell of a ride, odd or unconventional, unrealized potentialIf You Enjoy This, Check Out All Star Superman by Grant MorrisonAdditional Notes This collection contains Batman and Robin issues 1 6.ABSOLUTE RATING 2.5 5 stars STANDARDIZED RATING 3 5 starsAs I scroll down and skim the top reviews for this book, I keep seeing phrases like good, solid, great, intelligent, etc to describe the writing for this book I m by no means a Morrison fan, but I still [...]


    28. Here s the thing when it comes to the main Bat characters, Morrison interacts with canon in really interesting ways There are a lot of fascinating discussions in here between Dick and Alfred, Dick and Damian, Dick and Jason Morrison, one could say, gives good Dick.I JEST and yet that is precisely the problem Good god, the treatment of women in this book is gross Morrison is apparently obsessed with body horror, and with destroying women s faces this is a theme in both of the storylines in this v [...]


    29. Did I dream this whole book After Batman s death, Nightwalker, unable to leave men to fend for themselves in the streets of Gotham, opts to put on the bat suit and take his place Instead of calling back the last Robin replacement, he decides to turn Damien, Batman s ten year old son into the new Robin The outcome is not at all what he expected Neither the new Batman nor Robin get along, and when the old Robin returns things get even weirder.This just proves my theory that a world without Batman [...]
