Product Description

Review

"Powerful effects and sharp characterization."--"Publishers Weekly" "Watching [Robin] struggle to reconcile his mother's cold-blooded anger with his father's compassion and nobility (and not a little outright arrogance from both sides of the family tree) has been one of the highlights of the comics reading experience in recent years."--"Maxim " "This is the kind of Batman story I like to read: an actual mystery with an emotional hook."--"The Onion AV Club"

Format: Paperback
This stories running through issues #9-14 of the ‘New 52’ Batman and Robin title are collected, along with issue #0, as Batman and Robin Volume 2: Pearl TP (The New 52) (Batman & Robin (Numbered)). This title focuses on Bruce and Damian Wayne as the Batman and Robin team, although in this collection, the other Robins also play a part. These stories are excellently scripted and illustrated, and do seem to be going somewhere, unlike in many Batman titles, which are just a collection of stories. Unfortunately, we know where this is going - Batman Incorporated Volume 2: Gotham's Most Wanted HC (The New 52) – and Batman and Robin Vol. 4: Requiem for Damian (The New 52) (Batman & Robin). However, let us enjoy the journey (especially as there are at least two, if not three loopholes, in ‘Gotham’s Most Wanted’…) while we are on it.

THE SPOILER ZONE
Issue #0 – “Someday Never Comes” - is Damian’s life story, from the opening of the artificial womb in which he was incubated, to his first meeting with is father. Along the way, we see his training by Talia, and his birthday tests, which if he passes by defeating her, he will get to meet his father. This is an excellent, and highly entertaining story.

And don’t forget to check out Batman Li'l Gotham Volume 1 TP for more of Damian’s adventures.

By Sam Quixote TOP 100 REVIEWER on 31 July 2013
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The second volume of Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason's New 52 Batman and Robin should really be called Robin as its almost entirely made up of short stories about Damian Wayne. But it's these brief, ineffectual vignettes that also makes this not as good as the first volume (pretty much the story of the New 52 second volumes) though it has its share of good/bad moments.

The first chapter is the #0 issue where we see Damian being born/raised by Talia Al-Ghul, a story readers of Grant Morrison's Batman series will already be familiar with. It takes Damian up to meeting his dad, Batman, for the first time and helps new readers understand why Damian is the way he is by showing Talia's questionable parenting techniques.

The second chapter sees Damian fight a Talon who's trying to assassinate a high ranking military officer. It's not a bad comic but I already read this issue in the Night of Owls book - the repetition is a bit annoying as others who read that crossover book might find.

The longest story arc here sees a new villain show up called Terminus, eager to battle Batman. While Batman doesn't kill, he is incredibly heavy-handed in dealing with his foes and so has amassed a number of enemies, the majority being low-level thugs, who bear the marks of their encounter with him. This is a neat idea executed terribly because the "villains" were nobodies, henchmen essentially, who're now hilariously deformed but are in no way more dangerous as a result.

One guy literally has Batman's boot print on his face for life because Batman kicked him so hard! Another guy has a batarang embedded in his brain causing him to sometimes lose his train of thought!

This book had two issues that were completely amazing: the origin issue and issue 9, the night of owls. While in the main storyline it was nice to see all the former robins, I didn't think the villains were a good choice and would have preferred to see batman and robin fighting together and not just robin. Nonetheless the art was enjoyable and I really found this helps me understand Damien Wayne.

I love the Damien Wayne story line and this was another fantastic addition. He has a heart despite the attitude which makes him a great character. This volume went more in depth than the first and was a lot better because of it. Looking forward to the next one.

While Damian Wayne had been one of the most irritating characters (rivalling Jason Todd in all senses) to have ever appeared in Batman's universe, he has started gathering some real character, and appreciable traits. And this particular volume contains some good stories as well, one of which must have been appreciated by followers of the "Court of Owls" arc as well. Recommended.
