Editorial Reviews

Review

"Powerful effects and sharp characterization."—Publishers Weekly

"Watching [Robin] struggle to reconcile his mother's cold-blooded anger with his father's compassion and nobility (and not a little outright arrogance from both sides of the family tree) has been one of the highlights of the comics reading experience in recent years."—Maxim

"This is the kind of Batman story I like to read: an actual mystery with an emotional hook."—The Onion AV Club

Peter J. Tomasi shows us the back story of Damian Wayne becoming Robin with volume 2, Pearl. Damian was definitely not born into the Robin cowl. His mother Talia raised him as a true Al Guhl, training all year around. When Damians' birthday came around Talia would let him have the chance to meet his father, only after having won in a duel. Sure enough, that birthday came and that boy became Robin. Damian takes on a Talon from the Court of Owls, assists his father Batman in a war involving Terminus, and takes on "zombies" as the hunt for Joker resurfaces. All while trying to prove to Nightwing, Red Robin, Red Hood, and Batman that he is the one and only Robin. This volume was just as great of a read as the previous volume. The story telling is superb and the illustration from Pat Gleason completes this epic modern classic of Batman & Robin. I can't wait to read Death of the Family! I give Pearl 4.7/5 stars.

This is an amazing age to be a Batman fan. Between Scott Snyder's work on Batman: The Black Mirror and Batman Vol. 1: The Court of Owls (The New 52), and Grant Morrison's groundbreaking work on Batman Incorporated, Vol. 1: Demon Star (The New 52), we are truly spoiled for choice. There is a down side to having such an embarrassment of riches however, and that is overlooking the diamond's in the rough. Tomasi and Gleason's Batman & Robin Vol. 1: Born to Kill (The New 52) is that diamond in the rough.

The first volume established Bruce and Damian's relationship, but in this volume we see Damian doing everything he can to prove that he has earned the title of 'Robin'. For many years the character of Robin has been synonymous with the term 'sidekick', but this volume shows you how wrong that belief is. We witness Damian's upbringing, his fight against a Talon of the Court of Owls, and most importantly, his interactions with previous Robins.

Being trained from birth by the greatest assassin's in the world, and being the blood heir to the greatest detective in the world isn't enough for Damian; he want's to EARN the respect of those who came before him, to show them, and himself, that he is worthy of the title. It isn't a new concept, but if I have seen it implemented better somewhere else, I can't think of it.

Format: Paperback
Somewhere in Gotham, one of Batman's enemies is plotting revenge and in order to carry out his agenda, he recruits criminals who were seriously injured by Batman. In the mean time, Damien Wayne aka Robin wants to prove to the past Robin's that not only is he worthy of the mantle, but better than his predecessors in every way. -summary

After Batman & Robin Volume One: Born to Kill, I was looking forward to more of Peter J. Tomasi's work on this father and son duo. The first volume was too good and it set the bar very high. I wasn't looking forward to the exact same serving, because I knew it would have been difficult to recapture that type of character development again through Batman and Robin's father/son relationship so soon. Plus the villain Nobody was probably going to be tough to beat; however, I wasn't expecting such a madcap story though. Now don't get it twisted, this is still a fun book for the most part yet one's enjoyment more than likely will determine how much they're into Damien's antics and these throw away villains, which left me with serious mixed feelings. Batman and Robin Volume 2: Pearl contains issues 9 - 14 and #0.

One thing that stood out to me immediately is how much better paced this book is in regards to the Night of the Owls crossover, which spreads across the other Bat-titles. It takes place before the main story line, which doesn't break the flow of the story arc. The book begins with Damien's origin as he's being trained by his mother Talia Al Ghul, and his only drive is to meet his father Batman. People already familiar with Grant Morrison's run won't learn anything new but it's a decent start to the book.

I have read several of DC's new 52 titles, and while I must say I have been thoroughly impressed by a number of them I'm not sure any of them are as good as Batman & Robin. For the first time in a good while we get to see the Bat Family altogether, fighting on the same team in this book.

Damian Wayne is trying to clearly establish his authority as the new Robin while Tim Drake is now Red Robin, Dick Grayson Nightwing and Jason Todd, who bears the bat symbol on his chest, is the Red Hood. One of the things that makes this entry so good to me is the artwork. Just as in the first novel, the artwork in this entry is superb. The use of all the vibrantly dark colors really sells that Batman feel.

Anytime Batman and Robin are in one of the Bat vehicles the red glow of the computer's interface seems to be the artists way of making us eerily comfortable in Gotham City. The writing is again fantastic, Peter J Tomasi has done such an excellent job with this series I hope he never leaves.
