This was a very strange read for me. As a fan of the Damian character I was intrigued by an alternate future tale where he survives and eventually takes up the mantle of being the Batman. What we are given in the edition is a strange and disjointed story that ultimately goes no where and accomplishes nothing. As a collected four part series I was expecting a tightly told tale about the death of Batman and Damian stepping into his shoes, that was not the case. The first part of the story involve Batman's death and Damian's ascendance, but it sets up ideas and characters that are completely dropped and forgotten. Nothing is capitalized upon. The last part of the book contains two random stories about Damian as Batman that are average at best. Overall I felt like this was a book that had a great deal of potential that was never fully realized.

Back in the day, DC used to publish an occasional "imaginary" story, as opposed to the "real" stories about superheroes. Later it replaced imaginary stories with alternate universe stories, eventually creating so many alternate universes it was impossible to keep track of them all. I don't know if this is an imaginary story or an alternate universe story. Either way, it is a stupid story.

So Damian is alive, Dick "Batman" Grayson is dead, and Ra's al Ghul proclaims Robin the new Batman. Preferring to remain Robin, Damian decides to kill Batman's killer, or anyone who might have been Batman's killer. Then he goes to confession where he's scolded by a priest. He's also scolded by Alfred and finally by Bruce Wayne, leading to a father-son blowout battle that does not go well for either participant, but particularly not for Bruce. Damian really should consider taking an anger management class.

I never thought the "real" Damian was a good character and I wish he would have the decency to stay dead when he dies. I also wish DC would spend more time developing its characters in a single, consistent universe and less time basing stories on a 30 second chat that begins with "Hey, what if we did this?" The current willingness of DC to run with bad ideas gives us "What if Wonder Woman decided it was ok to kill everyone she didn't like?" and "What if Damian grew up to be an even bigger jerk than he already is?"

This is the story of an older Damian, which makes Alfred really old. He's getting fed up with Damian and who can blame him? I was fed up with him when he was still ten years old. I was at least enjoying Alfred in this story until he turned into a cat. Seriously, what's up with that?

Bat-Damian's unchecked rage is boring.

I rarely write reviews, but I was compelled to share my utter disappointment with this story. I love Andy Kubert's artwork--and it is beautiful here as well--but he was definitely not the person to write the story of Damian's assumption of the Batman mantle. He completely misses the mark on Damian's voice and character. He portrays Damian as more of a childish brat as a young adult than Morrison did with him as a 10-year old. Damon's vocabulary also seems to have deteriorated drastically in the intervening time as well.

I was looking very forward to this collected edition of this miniseries, and very much hoping that Kubert could deliver a story that rang true to the character of Damian as he transitions from the the person he is as Bruce and Dick's sidekick and student to the fully realized adult Batman that we see in Batman #666 and 700. Instead we get a wonderfully illustrated dud of a story. I'm giving this 2 stars only because of the art. My advice: skip this.

This is a little strange because we are transported to the future. A future where Bruce Wayne is a sick elderly man, Dick Grayson is Batman and Damian Wayne (alive and well) is still Robin. The book opens with the death of Batman and Damian coming to terms with himself taking over the reigns as the new Batman, at first he refuses to carry on the tradition of being just and drawing the line at killing but he finds everyone from all sides coming down hard on him after his string of eliminating the bad guys. He promises his father to carry on the tradition and live up to the respected role of a just Batman. This is a dark, gritty Batman with quite a few changes in this possible future which I won't mention. Alfred's situation becomes quite strange though, I will say. Not really sure what is up with that. I didn't like Damian when I first read him as a character, but the more he's developed the more I like him and Morrison does write him well. I really enjoyed the story and the art, finding it a gripping, serious read. There is a priest who shows up quite a lot who is a mysterious character who knows the Waynes but is never identified. Will this story arc continue? I want to know who he is. Damian's Batman costume is a bit weird, mostly it is the familiar costume but instead of a cape he wears a long trench coat with the utility belt, as the belt of course, and the coat's tails flow off into cape features. So it appears cape-like when he's jumping/flying around but it is definitely a coat, not a cape. I didn't find it aesthetically pleasing. But a serious take on the Batman mythos, and an intriguing look at a future scenario. Good reading.
