Seemingly skipping ahead from the previous issue, 'Batgirl: The Lesson – Unchained Melody' opens with Stephanie Brown – aka Batgirl – in a whole heap of trouble. Buried under a pile of rumble and masonry Steph reminds herself how she finds herself in such a situation: 'adopted' by the well-intentioned Clancy Johnson, who goes by the name The Grey Ghost, she's come face to face with another of the Reapers … and clearly she's come off worse following their initial encounter.
Wriggling her arms free Steph looks up…

With a flashback to the last university semester 'Batgirl: The Lesson' continues and concludes with the second part of a two-part story-arc entitled, somewhat ambiguously perhaps, 'Tunnel Vision'.
First at Gotham University, then the Theta-Kappa-Gamma house, and finally a fast food restaurant we witness a student making his way through his academic life with as little effort as possible before, somewhat out of the blue, he receives an email that could just give the student some direction and focus.
Fast-forward to present day and we discover that the young…

'Batgirl: The Lesson' continues with the first of a two-part story entitled 'Tunnel Vision'. As the issue opens we find our heroine, Stephanie Brown, sitting at the breakfast table across from her mother, prodding, poking at her morning waffles, recounting her recent academic studies.
"And chaos, my dear mother, is a sticky mistress".
Yet Mrs. Brown isn't really paying her daughter much attention as she's distracted by the lead story in the Gotham Gazette that focuses on yet another mysterious bank robbery the night before. Perhaps Steph – as…

After last month and not really enjoying the Red Robin book, I really did try to come into this with an open mind. The same open mind that caused me to buy nearly all the RIP and Battle for the Cowl tie-ins that added nothing to the story. With that in mind you will excuse me for my next comment:
This comic was crap. Now usually at this point, I would go off on a tirade of why I thought the comic…

When I think of Azrael, I think of Micheal Lane kicking the tar outta some random thug with his duel swords, and maybe a good story to go with it. This issue fails in just about most of that criteria. Not to mention the terrible art, but moving past that lets hop into the story:
You see we open up with a badly drawn flashback of Micheal Lane asking a priest about the power of faith. Then we go to present day were an unmasked Azrael is at the…

Editor's Note: Here is the final part of Suavestar's entry. Be sure to read the first two if you haven't already. And be sure to leave comments below on your thoughts of Fabian coming back.
Now for the big news, come June, Fabian Nicieza is coming to Red Robin. Most people will be happy about this news, as it means an end to the Chris Yost run on the book. I am one of those people; I am not a fan of Yost’s writing on the book.
I did not like it…

Red Robin #9, written by Chris Yost, art by Marcus To, not Ramon Bachs who is on the cover of the comic as artist, but following the many screw ups in the DC office with soliciting Paul to be writing books, which he’s not actually doing, I can let that slide for now.
This issue sees Red Robin come back to Gotham, to take down Ra’s, who has now sworn to destroy everything Bruce Wayne made.The story is mixed with Red Robin getting back to grips…

Red Robin #6 marks the debut on the series of artist Marcus To and inker Ray McCarthy on both the cover and interior of the book replacing Francis Manapaul, who handled the covers, and Ramon Bachs, who did interiors, respectively. The fact that this is the second issue in a four issue arc, and the art team has been changed is not a thing I like to see in the middle of stories, even if it is getting rid of Bachs distinct change from Red Robin…

Red Robin #5 is the start of a new story arc in the series. Now that Tim knows Bruce is alive somewhere in the world, everything is going to be alright, and maybe we will get stability to the series. If you believed any of that, then you are as dumb as I was walking into this issue.
We open with a young girl being chased by crazy men in Brazil, the girl runs away and screams for help, and she falls into a pit full…

The issue opens with Tim as Red Robin going through a museum in Berlin with Red Robin looking for some artifact while having a chat with Ra’s al Ghul, who Tim is now in an unlikely partnership with to find out what really happened to Bruce Wayne. We then cut to Wayne Tower in Moscow with the daughter of Lucius Fox being told to look for Tim Wayne for reasons that are never truly explained. We cut back to the present and Tim and his new allies, the league…
