    1. The second volume of Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason's New 52 Batman and Robin should really be called Robin as its almost entirely made up of short stories about Damian Wayne. But it's these brief, ineffectual vignettes that also makes this not as good as the first volume (pretty much the story of the New 52 second volumes) though it has its share of good/bad moments.The first chapter is the #0 issue where we see Damian being born/raised by Talia Al-Ghul, a story readers of Grant Morrison's Ba [...]

    2. This week with the Shallow Comic Readers Buddy read: Batman!Like most people, I found that this volume was not quite up to par with the preceding one. It starts out strong with the Zero issue, and focuses on Damian's "origin" and his relationship with his mother before he was handed over to Bruce Wayne. It's very well told, the art is solid, and allows the reader to know a good bit more about Damian and why he is the way he is.Then we get into the problem of Damian trying to set himself as being [...]

    3. "Damian, I'm proud of you."Now that I've read this twice, I can definitively say this is another great volume in The Damian Show, featuring Batman. We learn more backstory on Damian and his intense training, fighting his mother Talia Al Ghul on each of his birthdays. And there is more tenderness and humor to balance out the heavy. Firstly, Patrick Gleason and Mick Gray are amazing. I want to frame their artwork. Secondly, there's a lot packed into this volume with various villains and even some [...]

    4. Really enjoyable, just disjointed. We start off with Damien's origins. It's similar to Morrison's take except get a little bit more of a inside look at Damien's views. I also really dug the fact you see Damien always thought his father special yet never shows him that when he meets him. The whole new bad guy, I even forgot his name, is forgettable. He's basically dying and wants Batman to suffer. Nothing new here. What helps these issues is Damien making his mark on the other Robin's from the pa [...]

    5. Another strong volume in this series. Between this series and Snyder's I'm really coming around to Batman!

    6. Well Damian is a little shit, but we already knew that, didn't we? Arggggg, and I love him. Ridiculous freaking piece of moody, childish, turn-at-the-flick-of-a-switch, insane, miscreant child that he is. I wasn't sure if he was going to be able to redeem himself there, but he managed it. I don't think - well actually I know - Bruce even thought he was gong to. I am a little pissed that Damian completely got away with everything that happened with the past Robins. Have I mentioned he's a child a [...]

    7. Unlike it's predecessor Born To Kill, Pearl offers a handful of different storylines rather than one consistent narrative. This leads to a few bumps in the road as things progress, but the key strengths of the series hold this volume together.Damian strikes out on his own in Pearl, the book opening with a #0 issue that looks at his regimented upbringing with his mother Talia and the League Of Assassins. His strict training and indoctrination help make his feats in the present more believable in [...]

    8. Okay, that augmentation suit was awesome! :pBatman and Robin keep on kicking ass in this issue Only strange to see Batman stepping out of the shadows though Saw it happen just once before in one of the crisises Not his style, but he still delivers!At first I didn't like Gleason's art, at all but it grew on me Lot's of interesting details in it But still not the best in the business according to meOverall view: very happy with this one. Let's hope they can keep up the pace

    9. When I first read this I really enjoyed it. Second time round, not so much. After the first volume of Tomasi's run on Batman and Robin I was very optimistic. The previous book was full of heart and had a great story. This however, was a bunch of short stories that were completely forgettable. The first story is Damian's origins, something which has already been told in Grant Morrison's run back in 2007, but hey it wasn't bad so I'll let that slide. The second, and my personal least favourite, is [...]

    10. This review MAY contain spoilers. Read at your own risk.I really enjoyed this volume. I liked Damian much more in this volume. At least towards the end. He was way more respectful and he and Bruce even shared a tender father/son moment at the end. It was quite endearing. I liked the undertone of Damian trying to prove himself to the other Robins. He challenges them and has to come out on top. I really liked what Dick told him in the end. And I am glad that he was the one to do it. I didn't parti [...]

    11. Pretty good, decent characterization and art, but all kinda disjointed stories. Batman and Robin's dynamic is the most interesting part.

    12. I just re-read this volume in single issue form and I LOVE IT!!! Damian is such a great character and I will kick anyone in the face that says otherwise.Peter J. Tomasi gets a little closer to his wheelhouse in this volume telling shorter stories with slightly fantastical elements.The Zero Issue which we get a sense of Damian's upbringing with Talia, his training with the League of Assasins, and little bit of his humanity. This builds up to the first time Damian meets Batman in "Batman and Son" [...]

    13. Damian can be described with one word: annoying. But I'm starting to like him; I guess he's kinda growing on me. I'm really liking this series a lot :) It was so cool how it had all the robins together! And Zombies!!! :o

    14. A strong volume with good characterization though with a wider focus this time. We see some background on Damian as his mother has him trained and his interaction with the other Robins.

    15. You really need to read this one.Some of the biggest buzz around Batman comics in 2013 was generated when Robin died again. The last time this happened was in 1988 when the second Robin, Jason Todd, was killed by the Joker in "A Death in the Family." Famously (or infamously), Jason's fate was left in the hands of the fans, who were given a chance to vote on whether or not he should die. They chose to let him. In the 2013 equivalent, the victim was Damian Wayne, son of Batman and Talia Head, daug [...]

    16. There's some repetition here, due to the Night of the Owls storyline, so one of these stories I've already read (Damian has to save a dude from one of the Talons - decent story, but already read this - had I paid for the book I'd have been irked). The #0 story tells how Damian wanted to know his father, but wasn't able to until he could defeat his mother in combat on his birthday (took him until his 10th) which takes up to the first meeting of Father and Son.Now the rest of this kicks off, with [...]

    17. Not quite as fun as the first volume, mainly because it doesn't bring the focus on Batman and Robin properly until the final arc.The Zero issue opens this volume, which flashes back to Damian's training under Talia Al Ghul. It's nice to see this side of his life explored a little more, and also that Damian wasn't always a little crazy. The panel of Damian with Batman's cowl on his head is both adorable and chilling at the same time.Then comes issue 9 which is your generic Talon vs. Bat-Family Me [...]

    18. Another solid venture with just a couple small missteps.The first issue in this volume shows some of Damian's upbringing with his mother Talia, and just what she put him through. Pretty amazing and sad at the same time.The second issue was a crossover with the Court of Owls storyline. It wasn't bad, but seemed to mess up the flow of the regular story thread.The next few issues started off really well: Damian starts trying to prove to the other Robins that he's the best but then that all ends rat [...]

    19. More like 3.5 Stars for this one. The fights and the villains were my least favorite parts (I found them kind of lame to be honest), but there were some parts I really enjoyed, such as the portrait sitting. Also, really liked the competitive dynamic between all the Robins (past AND present), including Damian's little challenge. Nightwing just giving him the trophy and telling him he didn't have to try so hard had me going, "Awww!" That last panel with the Father/Son moment was great as well. "I' [...]

    20. It's hard to rate this collection, since I found about 80% of it obnoxious but liked the other 20%. The broad majority of this is bombastic and over the top in annoying ways and full of people screaming things at each other. Damian attacking the former Robins to show how he's better than them was a major low. For this kind of stuff, it helps a bit to read Damian's dialogue in Cartman's voice. The 20% I liked really surprised me, given that it was about the living dead rampaging through Gotham's [...]

    21. This volume has a Night of the Owl crossover starring Robin (Damian Wayne) which was one of the better issues in that crossover. It also had a group of villains scarred and deformed by Batman joining together to come after Batman and Robin. Then we get to see the early years of Damian's childhood. It wraps up with a zombie story with the Joker making an "off-screen" cameo. Overall a good volume with nice art.Batman and Robin fans should enjoy this one, especially fans of Damian Wayne.

    22. I wish I could give this book a higher rating, because I ADORED the stuff about all of the Robins getting together to fight crime, but there was some cheesetastic dialogue throughout this guy and I did not understand the last action set-piece at all. Maybe it was me. But it's worth the read for the Batfamily stuff in the middle.

    23. I will never like Damian as a character and this book showcases why; he's just an annoying brat who had a tough childhood. Except, I never sympathies with him because he's always a jerk, even at his best. He's a problem for Batman as a character and, for the writers to make him look effective, he makes the other Robin's look like chumps. This was a decent book, but not because of Damian.

    24. Another good New 52 conic. Poor Damian though. His mother ordering a hit on him. Hope to read more Batman and Robin tales!

    25. This series continues being thoroughly enjoyable. I never thought I'd come to enjoy reading about Damian Wayne.

    26. I am absolutely enthralled by this series. On its surface, this is an action/adventure story like any other comic--and while the authors could have stopped there and still had a solid arc, they decided to take it much deeper, examining the family dynamics of the very atypical "Bat Family." But what really makes this series shine is Damian Wayne. The series may be entitled "Batman and Robin," but Robin easily steals the show. Watching this character evolve is nothing short of fascinating. The aut [...]

    27. This is the second volume of Batman and Robin comics in the New 52 universe in DC. It starts with a little flashback to Damian's early childhood, and his growing up to overpower his mother. We're then thrown back into the "present" - full of sibling rivalry, father-son moments, and a hell of a lot of fighting.The relationship between Bruce and Damian will always be great to read. I loved how Damian was so headstrong in this book, but then the ending was so sweet. And I actually really liked [...]

    28. I think i like Batman and Robin series the most now as i am reading through Batman new 52 reading order. Damian Wayne aka Robin is very interesting and his involvement in the batman series just adds a new perspective to the batman we all love and know. The Villains are to some extent if not entirely new and that is also something exciting to read however, i can't wait till the new Duo meets one of the classic villains the like of The Joker, The penguin or Bane to name a few and see how they reac [...]
