I'm going to start out by advising you, if you've been interested in the Batman & Robin title, but haven't been sure where to jump in, start with this book. The focus is shifting back to the boy so many of us miss, and hints about him coming back. It has a seven page recap that catches you up to speed nicely, and also explaining some of the events before the New 52.
Peter Tomasi delivered one of the most memorable issues since the New 52 began, with the silent issue…

Alright guys, I'm gonna beef up my coverage on a lot of these Bat books, so I hope you aren't sick of me yet.
With this comic, I think it may have been more appropriate to put v. instead of the 'and'… Batman v. Ra's al Ghul.
So, first off, this art is very eye catching. Gleason & Gray have been getting all the credit on this book, but I'm giving the shout out to John Kalisz on colors. Especially the scenes that take place in the dark. His daylight colors don't…

Another day of C2E2 is underway and today is more promising than the results we received yesterday.
First up is another pre-arranged interview with current Batman and Robin writer, Peter Tomasi. This interview took place at Tomasi’s table in artist’s alley. Again we headed to our Facebook Group for questions and instead of picking the best of the lot, we asked them all. Here is what Tomasi had to say.
TBU: Let’s start off with an easy one. Who is your favorite Robin personally and your favorite to write?
Peter Tomasi: I would…

The main thing that stood out to me this issue is how fitting Patrick Gleason's art is for the Amazons. Wonder Woman and her sisters have been drawn with varying levels of musculature, but the most common depiction is to have them look more like swimsuit models than the actual warriors they are. Aleka in particular is a good design since Gleason makes no attempt to make her anything but a hulking brute, without giving in to the demands of fanservice so many other books seem to be laboring under….

It all ends here. The big finale. The grand crescendo. This was a big letdown. To me, you can make or break a story based on how it ends, and this ending didn't deliver. Bane finally goes back to his own persona instead using the Batman identity, which was refreshing. I almost forgot that Bane was actually Bane. He has his own identity, and him turning back to that was nice. But Bane's Talon allies don't pay off in the end.
Eaton lacked the storytelling capabilities in the fight between Bane…

I've been on the fence regarding this story from time to time. I enjoy what's being done with Two-Face, but the introduction of a brand new character to make the story work rubs me wrong. In general I hate it when writers introduce brand new characters rather than relying on the established ones. On the one hand never using new characters can lead to the Batman Universe stagnating, but in my opinion this universe has been established for so long that any new character feels like an unwelcome addition. Especially…

Well, with just two issues to go, Tomasi's story for Gotham's villians has finally picked up. Whether it pays off, we'll have to wait a month to see, but this issue was the best of this series yet. We can definitely see the shout outs to Frank Miller's DKR in this story for sure. Scot Eaton's art in this, is also the best we have gotten so far. It's very dynamic and fun to read, and I think the colors in this issue made it pop. Tomasi also continued the…

With Batman incapacitated, Two-Face tries to burn Erin's face off with the same acid that she used on him. Before he is able to an ambush by the other crime families catch our three characters off guard. They attempt to murder Erin, Two-Face, and Batman but the three escape; only for Two-Face to eventually be captured, leading Batman and Erin to go after him. They discover that the Mobs will be making an example of Two-Face as a statement to the other super criminals in Gotham.
The main meat of this…
