Format: Paperback
'Battle for the Cowl' isn't the most popular story arc in the Batman series; however, it is the DC event that spins out of 'Batman RIP' and 'Final Crisis', and begins the new 'Batman and Robin' adventures in Bruce Wayne's absence. 'Battle for the Cowl' is worth checking out if you're a fan of continuity or the three different characters who have all been Robin. But I can't recommend this set of mediocre stories and poor excuse for a 'Companion' tradeback.

I'm not saying there aren't a few decent issues included, but unless you're a completist, it's not worth wasting your time or money. A few issues have nothing to do with 'Battle for the Cowl'. It ends up confusing the event, rather than complimenting it. Each issue is meant to set up new directions for the characters. Most everyone is chiseled down to their generic profiles, and the premises of each story are far from original. It's a comic, you can't expect award winning literature, but you can expect entertainment. I don't think this provides 10dollars worth.

The 'Arkham Asylum' One Shot is possibly the best one out of the five. The asylum is destroyed and Dr. Arkham must find new inspiration to rebuild it. We're charmed by three of his patients, who end up providing the Doctor with just the motivation he needed. The style of writing eerie and almost poetic.

The 'Network' issue, is much like an issue of 'Birds of Prey'. Dr. Hugo Strange plays a game with the Bat-Family's femme fatales, intended for Jason Todd.. the premise is boringly similar to Joker's rigged Boat dilemma in Nolan's 'Dark Knight'. But the One Shot does provide insight into a few of the heroins, and if any characters shine in the entire 'Companion' tradeback, it would be Huntress and Oracle.
