Grant Morrison finished his run on this series, brought Bruce Wayne back, and was off to continue his Bat-story in another new title, "Batman Inc". But alas, that does not mean the adventures of Dick Grayson as (a) Batman and Damien Wayne as Robin have to end. This compilation contains the last nine issues of the series, 17-25, before the big reboot of September 2011. They are split into three stories, three chapters each, with three different creative teams.

The first story is "The Sum of Her Parts" written by Paul Cornell and illustrated (mostly) by Scott McDaniel. An old flame of Bruce is murdered by a yacht heist gone terribly wrong while her body goes missing. An investigation leads to an enemy who loathes Bruce Wayne and will strike at his "Batmen" to get their message across. A really good story that highlights the differences between Bruce and Dick and how their greatest strengths can become their greatest weaknesses. The artwork was good but could get confusing as to what one is looking at if too many objects overlapped.

The next story, "Tree of Blood", highlights the title of the compilation, Dark Knight, White Knight, as Batman and Robin battle an enemy named the White Knight. Somehow he is connected to people dressing as angels and committing suicide. Very good and engaging story written by Peter Tomasi re-teaming with his Green Lantern Corps illustrator, Patrick Gleason, who does a fine job himself.

The final story, "The Streets Run Red" is written by Judd Winick and illustrated by Greg Tocchini, Guillem March, and a couple other artists. March is the strongest of the bunch. Jason Todd gets a transfer from Arkham Asylum to a regular prison and Batman and Robin want to find out why and stop him.

This book was cool.. it had 3 stories. First was about this girl who Bruce Wayne dumped and she was killed. Shot in the head and left with a hole in head. She did not want to be forgotten and she went after the Bat family. She was kind of annoying and she got away. The second story was with the a villian who made people kill themselves. He was killing off the relatives of most of the villians in Arkam. Felt he was getting rid of them before they turned evil. The last story was the best. The return of the Red Hood. He asked to be transferred from Arkan to a regular correction. He causing havoc and some people want to break him out and Batman and Robin have to save him and stop him and of course the Red Hood as well. Overall these four Morrison books were cool. Damien and Grayson work well together even though they have differences

While Grant Morrison's run on Batman and Robin ended with volume 3, these are the final adventures featuring Dick Grayson and Damian Wayne as the Dynamic Duo, in their own solo title, before the New 52 reboot. This volume contains issues 17-25, and is split up into three seperate stories. I've mentioned in my review of Morrison's second volume on Batman and Robin that a weakness of it was that it was really just telling part of a larger story. It wasn't self-contained. Nothing is actually solved in it. That's not always a bad thing, but for that particular volume it was. That's not the case here. Each story is completely self contained, a random adventure featuring Batman and Robin. Two feature completely new villains and the last, once again, features the Red Hood (Jason Todd, Robin #2) It should come as no surprise to anyone that the last story was the weakest. The first two themselves were nothing groundbreaking or amazing, but they were solid and interesting reads, which is always a good thing in my opinion.

People may like to take shots at authors that aren't Morrison, but everyone has his or her own strengths, and the writers of each story (And there are three different writers) completely nail the relationship between Dick and Damian if nothing else, serving to highlight the differences between Bruce and Dick as well. Judd Winick, the author of the final story and the amazing Under the Hood storyline, also does a good job showcasing the differences between Dick Grayson and Jason Todd. However, his story again remains the weakest and it really just seems like he was trying to make Jason out to be this character that's too cool for anything going on around him.

Format: Hardcover
This is a collection of three three-issue stories featuring the Dick Grayson Batman/Damien Wayne Robin duo. They tangle with three villains, two new, one old: Una Nemo, a socialite who undergoes a dramatic change in her appearance thwarting a heist; the White Knight, an angelic psycho who is killing relatives of Arkham Asylum's inmates; and finally Jason Todd aka the Red Hood.

I thought the White Knight storyline was pretty good, it was pretty graphic in its murders and also quite striking in its brightness, contrasting the usual Gotham gloom. The Jason Todd storyline was decent as well with Judd Winick returning as writer. Todd's personality is both dark and playful and I actually felt myself rooting for him as he seemed the more interesting character in comparison to Grayson's good-guy Batman. The artwork in this story though was fairly scratchy and poor, like the artist was trying to mimic Andy Kubert and failing.

The Una Nemo character design is just so ridiculous it's difficult to take her seriously. She literally has a giant hole in the centre of her head and yet is somehow alive. It's perfectly oval, it hasn't damaged the structure of her skull or thought processes, and it looks so, so silly.

The storylines are alright, it's Batman and Robin taking down villains that don't add up to a larger storyline. In that sense it's good to see contained stories like this. On the other hand, the stories themselves weren't that amazing and ultimately felt a bit unsubstantial compared to the intense and inventive Grant Morrison books. It'd be nice to see Winick return to write a full length storyline with Jason Todd, otherwise "Dark Knight vs. White Knight" is your standard Batman/Robin book.
