Definitely 4 star material here. I like seeing character growth, and this title is giving it to me in spades. It's even got me mildly interested in the more extended Bat Family. Maybe not enough to read their solo titles yet, but there are volumes left to go here to convince me.
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.
Witnessing the bond deepen between, not only Damian and his father, but also between his adoptive family, is touching in a way that series in this medium rarely achieve. Peter Tomasi writes the hell out of this fantastic series, taking events from other authors and seamlessly weaving them into his own narrative, using them to enhance whatever story he is telling along the way. Patrick Gleason is a truly gifted man, and every single issue is an absolute joy to behold. Because of his tremendous talent this book is, hands down, the most visually beautiful Batman series on the stands today. Batman and Robin volume 2 continues the fantastic pace of the first book, and it is only getting better. If you have ever enjoyed Batman as a character, or want to know more about the new Robin, this is the book for you. A joy to read, and an absolute must buy.
