This book (which collects Batman #455-457 and the 5-part Robin miniseries) is best to be read right after "Lonely Place of Dying" where Timothy Drake got accepted by Batman to try out to become the new Robin. Here we see how 'the boy' Timothy Drake has to grow up and evolve to rightfully become 'the Boy Wonder'.
It all starts off with the three part story that runs through Batman #455-457 (with Art by Norm Breyfogle, which is sufficient but nothing great) in which Tim is ordered to stay home, while Batman is out on the streets. This in order for him to become fully prepared before he gets to roam the streets someday. Batman is determined not to make the same mistake with Tim he made with Jason Todd (see "Death in the Family"). But once things get too hot even for Batmans feet, Tim proves his worth (this is a story with one of Batmans major villains which shall remain nameless in this review because guessing who he might be is a vital point during the storyline). Storywise this is the most entertaining part of the book. After having proven his spirit is good, the Robin miniseries starts (with art by Tom Lyle, which is an improvement) with Tim getting send to Paris in order to learn more, and perfect his fighting skills. There he gets involved in a fight with a gang, which later turns out to be more than an average streetgang but instead an organisation lead by a mad man. Together with allies he met along the way he goes out to see if he can make a difference, and so his trip to Paris turns into a worldwide pursuit in which he learns a lot from the others and from himself.
This book is not for someone who's just out to get a nice self-contained Batman story (better get "Dark Knight Returns", "The Long Halloween" or "Batman: Prey" for that purpose) but it's a nice addition for people who like to keep track with the Bat-mythos. It continues right after the events that took place in "Lonely Place of Dying" so I'd really get that first (and if you want to know what all the hinting to 'Jason Todd' in the book is about you might wanna check out "Death in the Family" too, but that's optional, not a must). Given, it's not the greatest Batman-related story you'll ever read nor is it the most memorable, but it DOES make for a couple of hours of good, uncomplicated entertainment and will definately be worth your while (again, IF you're a fan of Bat-mythos).
