A study in revenge unravels deep in the Batcave and the young Dick Grayson is about to explode! Batman hands over the triggerman behind the Flying Graysons' murder, but when the killer fingers the criminal mastermind pulling the strings, the Dark Knight and his orphaned aerialist sidekick don't like what they hear. They don't like it one bit.

    I appreciate what Miller is doing on All Star Batman and I find it to be a rather refreshing take on Batman's character. Batman stars in seven other titles including Batman, Detective Comics, Batman Confidential, Batman and the Outsiders, Justice League of America and Superman/Batman and the Brave and the Bold.

    Im impressed by this book, as we all should be. Many things got in the way of this book being the well woven piece of fiction that is, and thats a crying shame. Nevertheless, I will hold my copies of this title near and dear because when we finally got out of the teams way and stopped bitching about the delays, we were treated to a fantastic exercise in the psychosis of a man in a cowl. One who likes making out with female smokers. Read Full Review

    I might be making more than a few stretches with this analysis, but I challenge any serious comic reader to examine this issue and tell me that Frank Miller has absolutely no game plan whatsoever, and is instead just crazily typing away these scripts with the goal of pissing off fanboys everywhere. At the very least, the many seemingly random creative choices Miller has made thus far seem to be tying together to make some cohesive statement about the Batman and Robin archetypes, and while I can't be certain what that statement is, I wouldn't dare look away for an instant.

    So, whilst All-Star Batman still isn't the great book that everyone seems to think it is, it's at least showing signs of a possible semi-recovery. The book still feels like it has been conceived by somebody with stunted maturity (and even if that's Miller's commentary on the entire superhero genre, it's getting old), and it simply isn't focused enough to make for a really compelling read. Still, fans of Miller will still find nuggets of entertainment in his writing, and followers of Lee's artwork will probably be satisfied by his consistent level of artistic quality. I just wish it was all serving a better story. Read Full Review

    Im more than happy to go read Harvey Kurtzman and Wally Woods satire on Superman and Jonathan Swifts satire on the English treatment of the Irish. I also have better things to spend my money on every four months (or however often). Even if a ninth issue does eventually come out, the eighth issue will be my last. Read Full Review

    Horrible,just why?Batman acts like a homocidal maniac in this comic,he enjoys burning people to death and having sex with the Black Canary in this comic and that's reallly all what happens in this comic.Crazy Steve lights up a bunch of people who didn't actually do anything wrong and Irish ninja prostitute offers herself to him,oh and Robin refuses to kill the guy who killed his parents,so congratulations you wasted 70% of a comic by destrying the character of Batman,25% with a sex scene and 5% with what could have been labeled as character developement if this wasn't such a piece of crap! This isn't a fresh take on Batman,he doesn't act like a superhero that actually kills with purpose and fights corruption as most people think he acts in this comic.He's an immature,egoistical fascist who kidnaps a kid,murders both criminals and innocentes,physically and psychologically abuses Robin is cruel to people who love him and acts judgemental and violent towards both his enemies and other superheros and also tried to steal Green Lantern's ring so he could turn the world into a dictatorship ruled by him pretty much like what Sinestro did to his world,althought I'm assuming he was going to do this since this series has been left on a cliffhanger for 8 years already!
