Editorial Reviews

Review

"A jaw-dropping use of the comic book form. I am absolutely certain that the first full image of the Joker from this issue will never leave my memory."—IGN

"Now's a great time to be a Batman fan. Or a Robin fan. Or just a casual reader looking for a compelling Joker story."—CBR

"It's creepier than POLTERGEIST's Carol Ann in a movie with the two chicks from THE SHINING, really."—AICN

Format: Hardcover
Batman and Robin: Death of the Family, by Peter Tomasi, ties in to the overall Death of the Family story running through the Bat-titles. In addition to the run-in with Joker, though, are several other episodes. Most of this book focuses on Damian Wayne, Bruce Wayne’s son and the current Robin. In one arc, Damian has sent Bruce chasing mementos from his past in order to help him discover more about his parents and childhood. It is a touching story and goes a long way towards developing the father-son relationship between the two. Another arc has a story with Damian and Dick Grayson (Nightwing) dealing with the fall out from Joker's attack on the Bat-family.

From the start, Damian has been a tough character to like. This volume softens the edges a little and begins to show Damian as a boy yearning for approval and attention from his father beyond what he receives in his role as Robin. Bruce’s attitude towards him also begins to change, and this character development grounds the story in reality much more than a typical superhero book might be able to do.

I recommend this to Batman, and particularly Damian Wayne, fans. It will deepen the Death of the Family storyline, and broaden your view of the relationship between Batman and Robin.

I received a preview copy of this book from DC Comics in exchange for an honest review.

This volume does an excellent job of sorting through what was a very messy event, Death of the Family. Patrick Gleason and Peter Tomasi delivered one of the most visceral and affecting chapters of the event with Damian and the Joker's heart to heart at the zoo. The scene is swimming with reds and blacks, and Gleason uses shadows to masterful effect. These issues lead perfectly into the conclusion to the event, which I personally felt was lacking, but won't hold against this volume, seeing as it is originally from a different series.

The two remaining issues are the annual and issue 17. They delve deeper into the psyche of our characters, and looks at what their complex family has become. It is a touching, if not dysfunctional, type of love these characters have for each other, and Tomasi couldn't have written it any better.

Nothing has changed from the last two volumes. Tomasi nails the tone of the series, and writes these characters better than anyone out there, while Gleason hits the visuals out of the park every time he puts pen to paper. Batman and Robin continues to be the masterfully written, flawlessly drawn jewel in the crown of DC's many bat series. There isn't really anything left to say other than you should absolutely own this book. An unquestionable buy.

This is on going greatness. I love every moment of Batman and Robin. These are some of the best written issues since Grant Morrison started their journey over again.

A continuation of the very strong work on this series as a whole. The collection is let down by the inclusion of the Batman issue (which I already have in several other collections), which to me feels like I spent money for no reason. Still, I get that others may not have it, and at least it brings some resolution to the story. Otherwise, I really have no complaints. I'm loving the father-son dynamic, and the lovely artwork.

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS NO SPOILERS

Peter J. Tomasi has done a phenomenal job writing the series so far. This one is definitely the best one so far. Why? THE JOKER! The joker storyline in this book is incredible and it had such a shocking ending! Also the edition of the annual was nice too. The annual tells the story of Robin sending his father on a worldwide tour to see things relating to his parents. The trip is very heart warming, as well as when Damian takes over as Batman while he is gone traveling. This book is awesome and I look forward to Volume 4 in June! BUY THIS

I love Peter Tomasi's Batman & Robin, I love his treatment of Damian Wayne as Robin and as the son of Batman, and dare I say it, better than Morrison. The run has been great and this one kicks off with one of the great stories between farther and son. It includes ai terrfying nightmare with Robin facing the Joker by HIMSELF. Speaking of nightmare, we get a visit into the minds of the Wayne Mannor residents. This book was great, I had fun jumping around this variety of stories. The main thing to understand though is that if you havent read volume 1 or 2 or both you really are doing a disservice to yourself. This trilogy is truly the masterpiece based on a giant story arc that is not based on mission or enemy sense but the building of relationship between a son and his father. It's well crafted touching story which breaks your heart at the notion of the eventual death of the family. Volume 3 is the conclusion of this buiilding an closing of a relationship. I think it could of included something stronger as far as the actual death and it happened, but the Death of the Family is still pulled off quite well

I like the Batman and Robin issues that aren't tied into the Death of the Family in this edition. The DotF issues leave some gaps in the story. I haven't read the complete Death of the Family so I feel that those gaps are dealt with in the other titles. As a stand-alone, this volume is good minus the Family story issues.
