Written by Peter J. Tomasi, Art & Cover by Patrick Gleason and Mick Gray
Solicitation Info (from Previews): Battling evil with his son, Damian, at his side, Batman now realizes that the hardest part of the job may be trying to work together! As Batman and Robin try to adjust to their new partnership, a figure emerges from Bruce Wayne’s past: His name is NoBody, and he’s not happy that Batman Incorporated is shining a light on his own shadowy war against evil…
Bias: I kinda like the idea of Batman’s sidekick being his son (especially given who his son is), and I love Patrick Gleason’s art. Still, Batman in general usually doesn’t usually interest me as a solo book. We’ll see.
What I liked: The artwork was beautiful. The plot was interesting and engaging, and there was a definite energy to the story.
What I disliked: I like the idea of Damian, but he came off as nothing more than an annoying twit. And Batman just didn’t feel like Batman to me.
Verdict: Dropping this title.
As always, SPOILERS in comments, including my favorite scene, thoughts on what happened, and questions about what’s to come.
