Batman and Robin Annual #3 Preview

When all is said and done, I hope this annual at least sets up Robin: Son of Batman a little bit instead of being "Batman and Robin on the moon." I mean, that's cool... but I'd also like a hint as to what is coming.

  1. I enjoy the art, but... Gleason's my guy for this title. I guess with him working on the Damian solo and having gotten a final issue for this book in the regular series, I can deal. Tomasi's onto other things, too, after this. Sigh.

    "Born to Kill", the first B&R arc for the New 52, is what made me start to actually like Damian Wayne. I read all the time how Tomasi's Damian is somehow "wrong" compared to Morrison's (to be fair, it IS his character), but honestly I felt like there was more humanizing him in Tomasi's writing, even though I don't like the general concept of the character.

    I still don't like "Batman's biological son, also Robin, and will be Batman some day because he's Batman's son". Damian dethroned my favorite Robin-to-be-Batman-someday, Timothy. Damian always felt like Post-Crisis Jason Todd with better press. But I'd be lying if I didn't say the little fungus has grown on me. In the New 52, at least, he's certainly more interesting than Tim Drake.

    Poor Tim.
