The Dynamic Duo are back – Batman and Robin? No, Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely - ‘ray! Batman’s “dead”! I know, I know, le sigh, cue eye-rolling, etc. But after his “death” in Final Crisis, a lot of great comics followed: The Return of Bruce Wayne, this great series as well as Scott Snyder’s The Black Mirror, culminating with Batman Incorporated. While Bruce is temporarily away, Dick Grayson steps up to don the cowl and become the new Batman with surly sidekick Damian Wayne as [...]
If Grant Morrison has ever written a crappy comic, I don’t want to know about it. *This volume is about Robins, past and present. The current Batman is Dick Grayson, Robin #1, who is taking over for the dead/missing Bruce Wayne. His Robin is Damian, Batman’s son with Tahlia al Ghul. He’s a ten year old raised by assassins. He’s a mechanical genius and an adept crime fighter. He’s also violent, surly, uncooperative and contemptuous. Good luck, Dick.The other Robin is Jason Todd, now the [...]
Grant Morrison took his medicines (more probably drugs) and gives us two new, original and badass dynamic duos at the price of one: Dick & Damian / Red Hood & Scarlet. Just imagine David Lynch under hallucinogens directing Adam West's Batman tv series to make yourself an idea of what is waiting for you between these pages just beware: this is not the Dark Knight you used to read. And the cast of freakshow Gotham villains was just much more bloodthirsty and disturbing than usual.A good (a [...]
Batman Reborn: In their first case as Batman & Robin, Dick Grayson and Damian Wayne take on Professor Pyg and the Circus of the Strange.I'll be honest, despite reading comics off and on for the last 30-ish years, I haven't read all that many Batman comics. When I heard Grant Morrison was doing the Batman monthly, that's when I got on board. Batman and Robin is Morrison at his best.Remember when Bane broke Batman's back and they replaced him with someone who wasn't Dick Grayson? Well, Morriso [...]
The Batman is dead. Long live the Batman.Grant Morrison and frequent artistic collaborator Frank Quitely gives us the first arc of entirely new take on the Dark Knight.Morrison has charted Batman’s adventures the past few years and along the way gave the Caped Crusader a son, a league of Batmen and a super secret identity called the Batman of Zur-en-arrh. This led to his fateful encounter with dark god Darkseid in Final Crisis which resulted in Bruce Wayne trapped in the time stream. This gave [...]
I’m not a member of the cult of Grant Morrison. I liked what he did with the X-Men a few years back, but I didn't make it through the last giant re-boot of the DC Universe that he played a huge role in. His All-Star Superman left me scratching my head, and his previous Batman stories left me cold. Part of that was due to my lack of patience with a comic publisher ‘killing’ a major character. Anyone who thought that Bruce Wayne was actually going to stay dead should email me your credit car [...]
This new series is right after three previous graphic novels: “Batman R.I.P.”, “Final Crisis” and “Fight for the Cowl”. People who follow the many graphic novels probably have an idea of things but spoilers are below.A new Batman and Robin are in town. The new Batman is none other than Dick Grayson (a la Nightwing and before that the first Robin) and Bruce Wayne's ten year old son, Damian Wayne (who is the grandson of Ra's al ghul and the son of the villain's daughter, Talia). It's a [...]
Ok, superheroes are new to me, so I have a little less patience with them. Batman here, very interesting, bad guys in this series SUPER AWESOME. Robin: Kick this kid in the head. SHEESH.
Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths ReviewsBruce Wayne is dead! So get ready folks, ‘cause there is a new Batman and Robin in town and things are about to heat up!Now, since we all know Bruce Wayne won’t stay in the hereafter for long, we can sit back without any angst or sorrow and enjoy the brief tenure of the new Batman: Dick Grayson (a.k.a. Nightwing and the first Robin) who has donned the caped crusaders’ cowl. Joining him as Robin is none other than Bruce Wayne's own ten year old son, [...]
In Grant Morrison's re-imagining of Batman and Robin , Batman Reborn features Nightwing Dick Grayson and former first Robin as the new Batman, taking up the mantle from Bruce Wayne after the events that followed Final Crisis, Batman RIP and Battle for the Cowl. This first volume collects six issues comprising of two story arcs that are sure to tantalize and excite readers, both long-time Bat-fans and novices alike. Morrison, collaborating with artists Frank Quitely and Philip Tan, has offered a [...]
What a gruesome and disturbing outing this is. While I enjoy Dick Grayson as Batman, this one fell a bit flat. For one thing, how many new villains do they want to introduce in one comic book? For another, how obnoxious must Damian become before Dick Grayson just caves his despicable little skull in. The change in art midway though the book was a bit jarring, even though I much preferred the second artist's work. And did I mention that this book is gruesome and disturbing? If you want to read a [...]
Holy Smokes Batman! A Grant Morrison Batman story I Like? Wait, noLOVE? What in the fucking world? Listen I don't like most of Grant's stories. I believe he took too many drugs when younger and creates "deep" stories that aren't really that "deep" but just try to be "confusing" and people think that's "deep". Kind of how people still think Man of Steel has a deeper message when in reality it just throws it in your face, and it's shit. Anyway why is Batman and Robin good? Well for multiple reason [...]
I really like Dick Grayson as Batman and Damian Wayne as Robin the Boy Wonder! They make a great and lively crime fighting duo (despite Dick being uncertain of himself and Damian constantly being a brat)! Not to mentionRed Hood and Scarlet! I justke Red Hood so much even since I heard about his story from Under the Hood!*fangirl's screams*After Batman R.I.P, Grant Morrison continues to prove himself a great story teller for Batman's tales, this guy really knows what he is doing although I don't [...]
Batman Reborn didn't blow me away as the acclaim suggested it would, although admittedly i'm already familiar with Damian Wayne's journey and his interactions with Dick Grayson from the New 52 onwards. Despite reading this early character development out of order, the dynamic between the new Batman and Robin (at the time) is refreshing and there's a natural chemistry between the pair that leads to both interesting conflicts and amusing exchanges.This is also a relatively simple story by Grant Mo [...]
"Whatever happened to you, it helped make you special, understand?"Following the events of Batman R.I.P. and Final Crisis, Bruce is "gone" (I'll leave it at that). Dick Grayson and Damian Wayne take up the mantle of Batman and Robin to replace Bruce Wayne and Tim Drake, who's become Red Robin. While no duo is as classic as Bruce and Dick, this one is a close second for me. As you probably know, Damian was my least favorite Robin, until this book. (He's now tied with Jason.) He's still kind of a [...]
I do love a bit of Grayson as Batman, he definitely lightens the tone of Batman, he's not as brooding and he is 100% nicer to Alfred, and i'm all about that. Plus the contrast between Grayson and the little shit bag that is Damian works really well together. I liked the villains in this who all seem to have a face fetish with Flamingo eating them and Pyg gluing some creepy ass cabbage patch doll face to people it's just the stuff of nightmares. I'm not sure about Jason Todd in this he just remin [...]
I really like Dick Grayson as Batman. He brings a very different feel to the cowl. Bruce's son, Damian, makes a good Robin for Dick's Batman. He's not quite the infuriating little brat he was when he first showed up, though he's still a brat. They're great characters, with a great dynamic, and their first two storylines make total sense. Of course Dick Grayson would have to face a killer carnival. Of course Jason Todd would show up again. In fact, everything is going great, and then Professor Py [...]
I thought Morrison did a pretty good job with this story. I was fully engaged it the plot, and I loved seeing Jason again. My biggest complaint would have to be the weirdo pig-guy as a villain. He was almost too strangeeven for a comic book. Then again, it is Morrison, so what did I expect?
In "Batman Reborn", Grant Morrison continues the landmark run that he started on the main Batman title. Picking up after Final Crisis and Batman: Battle for the Cowl, we find Richard Grayson (the original Robin) taking up the mantle of Batman after the presumed death of Bruce Wayne. He's joined by an all-new Robin, Damian Wayne (Batman's son from his affair with Talia Al-Ghul - see Batman: Son of the Demon). If you're up-to-date on all these developments, then you will get the most out of this b [...]
I didn't really like this as much as I expected to. For some reason, I prefer Tim Drake to all other Robins and he's the only one not in this, so that's not helping anything.The character dynamics were interesting. I liked seeing what Dick, Jason, and Damian go through without Bruce. The villains weren't really compelling, but the tension between Batman/Robin and Red Hood/Scarlet was a highlight, their conflicting views of justice being one of the major plot points.The artwork was good, but ther [...]
Good writing - check. Good art - check. Something's missing tho - sense of Batman's menace or superhuman strategies? Morrison's trademark weirdness or sense of humour? A story with real balls or anything other than "plotline of the week"? Feel kinda disappointed by the book, don't know why.-==-Second reading a few months later and I *do* like the menacing villains that Morrison/Quitely came up with. That makes me feel more charitable towards the book, but still wondering what's missing.
Bruce wayne is dead, or at least he was temporarily, and in that time his long-time protege Dick Grayson dons the mantel of the Dark Knight! The thing about Morrison is that when he is good, he is very good, and in "Batman and Robin", he is very good! Morrison gives Grayson his own voice as Batman, subtely chaning his MO to reflect Grayson's personality and former life as a cop. This is a Batman that lacks some of the sheer mental brillance of the former wearer of the cowl and knows it. His dete [...]
Honestly I have never read a batman comic before, just seen the cartoon and movies, I know the general storyline of batman but this is my first time getting introduced to the multiple Robin's. It was very interesting and made a lot of sense. I love what Grant Morrison did. The story and art were very well done, I enjoyed the many villains and the Red Hood arc. I look forward to the rest of this series.
I didnt love this one. Not quite buying this new Batman.

Here's the thing: when it comes to the main Bat-characters, Morrison interacts with canon in really interesting ways. There are a lot of fascinating discussions in here between Dick and Alfred, Dick and Damian, Dick and Jason. Morrison, one could say, gives good Dick.I JEST -- and yet that is precisely the problem. Good god, the treatment of women in this book is gross. Morrison is apparently obsessed with body horror, and with destroying women's faces: this is a theme in both of the storylines [...]
Did I dream this whole book?After Batman's death, Nightwalker, unable to leave men to fend for themselves in the streets of Gotham, opts to put on the bat-suit and take his place. Instead of calling back the last Robin replacement, he decides to turn Damien, Batman's ten-year-old son into the new Robin. The outcome is not at all what he expected. Neither the new Batman nor Robin get along, and when the old Robin returns -- things get even weirder.This just proves my theory that a world without B [...]
