    A worthy read from top to bottom, which only lacks so far in knowing exactly where the original source of all the tension comes from. Read Full Review

    Yes, there is stuff going on with Batman too but it's not nearly as exciting as the battle of the Robins. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Jul 17, 2012

    Batman and Robin #11 continues to be one of the most underrated comics that DC Comics is currently putting out. Peter Tomasi does a great job exploring the relationship between Bruce and Damian while giving them challenges that test each of their personalities. The addition of Damian's challenge to his predecessor gives this book just another reason to follow as it is a battle that you want to see. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Brian Bannen Jul 16, 2012

    Some people scoff at comics as funny coloring books geared for kids. Clearly, those people have never read an issue of Batman and Robin. Peter Tomasi doesn't shy away from violence, and he reminds readers that the world in which his story takes place is full of brutality and savagery. And it needs a hero who can save it.

    Outer Realm Comics - Vivien G. Jul 11, 2012

    I mentioned in previous reviews how important it is for me that a cover gives a general idea of the contents of a book. I cannot deny that this was achieved here: The victims of the branding in the background, Batman with the fiery Batsymbol on his chest in the foreground, looking like the embodiment of fear. The cover is actually a perfect summary of the contents of the issue. Unfortunately, that does not make it a good one. On the contrary, it is too similar to the cover of this month's Batman, to evoke any interest in potential readers. A shame indeed, considering the fact that Gleason is such a talented and usually creative artist. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Jul 11, 2012

    This isn't a great issue, and it deserves a lower score than I'm giving it BUT those opening pages were so enjoyable and the some of the visuals were so cool that I would be ashamed to give it below a… Read Full Review

    Batman and Robin is a trip, a venture into uncharted sections of Batman’s world. Moving through uncharted waters can lead to disaster and genius. It’s always fun to see which Peter J. Tomasi will bring to us. Read Full Review

    That being said, I found enjoyment in the issue. The Jason fight was probably the highlight, there were a few good comedic beats, the only thing I flat out didn't like was Batman yelling in the middle of an empty street "LEAVE MY CITY ALONE!" Seemed kind of out of character for him. Oh... just remembered something I hate, well more a pet peeve. I can't stand when you have characters introduced and don't learn their name. Fucking hate that. I should have mentioned it last issue with that group of characters, but I forgot. Here we learn two characters names, but are left wondering about the others. Just say their name ONCE! That's all you need. Ugh. Whatever. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Jul 16, 2012

    With two plot lines running simultaneously, Tomasi should be focusing on "War of the Robins", a narrative that actually has a purpose and can give real insight to Batman's various sidekicks throughout the years - it's a character-driven plot that has a lot more potential. Terminus' plot to make the city his own is one that has been done to death for the last sixty years of Batman's history, and it feels like more of a support story that's getting too much limelight.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 19, 2012

    As to Damian, who appears to be back in full on spoiled little-shit mode despite the tease that he might grow up a bit after the failure with Nobody, it's an interesting choice for him to view Todd (the Robin he's most like) with such contempt. I'll be interested to see what action the Red Hood might take in retaliation. Although the crowbar sequence is in bad taste, it certainly fits this version of the character. Hit-and-Miss.
