SPOILERS: Robin: Son of Batman #9

Earlier today, Patrick Gleason announced that this issue would be his last on the series. That's a bummer. At least he brought back one of the most beloved characters in this history of Gotham before he went.

The Spoilers:

Kind of a simple issue. Damian is finally back in Gotham, sees his father's new life, has a feeling that Batman will return one day, and wants to make sure Gotham is in tip-top shape for that day, and goes out on patrol.

After dealing with the trio of baddies Gleason and Tomasi created in Batman and Robin, Damian sees lights coming from the bottom of the bay where Nobody's ship sank after his death. Soon, Damian finds the people who provided Nobody his tech erasing the former assassin from existence. Fights are had, Goliath saves the day, having followed Damian all the way back to Gotham. 

Turns out Maya, who had been these two's biggest customer, paid them off once more to erase all trace of her father and old life from existence. They're bitter about losing a client, but a shown the metaphorical door out of Gotham. Damian checks in remotely on Maya, and it turns out she's doing just fine. 

So, with Goliath back in Gotham, Damian returns to the cave to prepare for more crimefighting, but not before introducing Goliath to his dog, cat and... MOTHERFUCKING BAT-COW, WOOOOOOOOOOOO.


The Opinion:

Fuck yeah.
