Book Description

17 Jun 2014 Batman & Robin
A direct tie-in to Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's "Death in the Family" Batman story comes the disturbingly creepy and psychological thriller of Batman and Robin by the all-star team of Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason. The Joker returns to test Batman and the extended Bat-family, and squares off against Batman's son, Damian, aka: Robin! With Batman's life hanging in the balance, The Clown Prince of Crime pushes Robin to his limits - and beyond! And, with the 300th Anniversary of the founding of Gotham approaches, tragedy strikes the Bat-family. Collects Batman and Robin #15-17, Batman and Robin Annual #1, and Batman #17.

Product Description


"A jaw-dropping use of the comic book form. I am absolutely certain that the first full image of the Joker from this issue will never leave my memory."--IGN"Now's a great time to be a Batman fan. Or a Robin fan. Or just a casual reader looking for a compelling Joker story."--CBR"It's creepier than POLTERGEIST's Carol Ann in a movie with the two chicks from THE SHINING, really."--AICN

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read 9 Feb 2014
By Gayle
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The previous batman and robin series was spectacular and was written by my favourite comic book author: Grant Morrison. The reason I read this was because it tied in to death of the family. I loved this, especially the annual, which really was about character development as well as a crime. Though the death of the family tie in wasn't as good as nightwing's or red robin's, it was still enjoyable. Buy this book today.

This graphic novel is a must have for any Batman (and/or Robin) fan. Most of the material within the book is present in the Joker: Death Of the Family graphic novel (A collection of all of the issues involved with the Death of the Family arc), however there are one or two issues which are exclusive to this volume. A great read and seeing as it is one of the Boy wonder's last adventures it's a much more emotional read than I would have thought! Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A story of Damian Wayne 6 Dec 2013
By Tyler Johnson - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This volume does an excellent job of sorting through what was a very messy event, Death of the Family. Patrick Gleason and Peter Tomasi delivered one of the most visceral and affecting chapters of the event with Damian and the Joker's heart to heart at the zoo. The scene is swimming with reds and blacks, and Gleason uses shadows to masterful effect. These issues lead perfectly into the conclusion to the event, which I personally felt was lacking, but won't hold against this volume, seeing as it is orginally from a different series.

The two remaining issues are the annual and issue 17. They delve deeper into the psyche of our characters, and looks at what their complex family has become. It is a touching, if not dysfunction, type of love these characters have for each other, and Tomasi couldn't have written it any better.

Nothing has changed from the last two volumes. Tomasi nails the tone of the series, and writes these characters better than anyone out there, while Gleason hits the visuals out of the park every time he puts pen to paper. Batman and Robin continues to be the masterfully written, flawlessly drawn jewel in the crown of DC's many bat series. There isn't really anything left to say other than you should absolutely own this book. An unquestionable buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Focus on Damian 3 Dec 2013
By Scott Knight - Published on
Batman and Robin: Death of the Family, by Peter Tomasi, ties in to the overall Death of the Family story running through the Bat-titles. In addition to the run-in with Joker, though, are several other episodes. Most of this book focuses on Damian Wayne, Bruce Wayne’s son and the current Robin. In one arc, Damian has sent Bruce chasing mementos from his past in order to help him discover more about his parents and childhood. It is a touching story and goes a long way towards developing the father-son relationship between the two. Another arc has a story with Damian and Dick Grayson (Nightwing) dealing with the fall out from Joker's attack on the Bat-family.

From the start, Damian has been a tough character to like. This volume softens the edges a little and begins to show Damian as a boy yearning for approval and attention from his father beyond what he receives in his role as Robin. Bruce’s attitude towards him also begins to change, and this character development grounds the story in reality much more than a typical superhero book might be able to do.

I recommend this to Batman, and particularly Damian Wayne, fans. It will deepen the Death of the Family storyline, and broaden your view of the relationship between Batman and Robin.

I received a preview copy of this book from DC Comics in exchange for an honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great book but not as a standalone 4 Mar 2014
By alexi_m - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love Peter Tomasi's Batman & Robin, I love his treatment of Damian Wayne as Robin and as the son of Batman, and dare I say it, better than Morrison. The run has been great and this one kicks off with one of the great stories between farther and son. It includes ai terrfying nightmare with Robin facing the Joker by HIMSELF. Speaking of nightmare, we get a visit into the minds of the Wayne Mannor residents. This book was great, I had fun jumping around this variety of stories. The main thing to understand though is that if you havent read volume 1 or 2 or both you really are doing a disservice to yourself. This trilogy is truly the masterpiece based on a giant story arc that is not based on mission or enemy sense but the building of relationship between a son and his father. It's well crafted touching story which breaks your heart at the notion of the eventual death of the family. Volume 3 is the conclusion of this buiilding an closing of a relationship. I think it could of included something stronger as far as the actual death and it happened, but the Death of the Family is still pulled off quite well
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent character work 9 Feb 2014
By M - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I won't be able to express my admiration for this volume any better than several of the other five-star reviewers have, but this volume was worth it for its first and last chapters alone. If you cared for Damian at all, or for the relationship between batman and son, this is excellent.
