    Despite the utter ridiculousness of the premise of this arc, because I mean this isn't cerebral writing here, but for some reason I really can't complain much about it. Tomasi knows how to write fun action. It's cool, all people involved both fictional and on creative team are competent, so I'm digging it. Keep it up. Cause I wanna see how Damian wakes up.

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Nov 19, 2014

    Tomasi and Gleason kick as much ass with this issue of Batman And Robin as the big guy does in that slick new suit. Action packed, great character work and a creative team that is on fire, this is a Bat-book that isn't to be missed. That last page alone is worth the price of admission and it's time for a showdown that is going to (hopefully) be nuts. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - TJ Heilman Nov 21, 2014

    Overall the Robin Rises arc is working on so many different levels, and I personally cannot wait to see what happens after Damian or whatever he is will be is revived. Poor Bruce is going to need some serious lotion to get rid of that dry skin and this is going to be a turning point for the Bat-family. Either they will learn to work together perfectly or Bruce might lose one of his other "Soldiers," I am not sure how that would work, but it would an interesting twist. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Ashley Victoria Robinson Nov 21, 2014

    If you have been following the Batman and Robin series or are familiar with the events in its titles than Batman and Robin #36 is definitely for you. It's smack in the middle of the Robin Rises storyline and would be difficult to dip a toe into if you're unfamiliar with the stakes tied up in the return of Damian Wayne. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Nov 19, 2014

    This chapter is called "Chaos" and it most definitely lives up to its title. This one's incredibly fast-paced and refuses to slow down. It's non-stop excitement as we see Batman being seriously intimidating and formidable and then the story ends on a note that'll make you wish you could see what happens next right away. Everyone on the creative team is really going all-out to produce a story that's a total blast. If you want to see Batman completely unleashing and overcoming every single threat that's put in his way, you need to read this series. Seriously, it's pretty much one big and totally thrilling action scene. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Nov 20, 2014

    Damian, Batman, the New Gods, Cyborg, and the Bat Family come together in a landscape that was, literally, made for the outrageous and impossible. But underneath it all lies a sense of weariness. This has all gone on too long. Tomasi's alchemical factory has harvested and distilled and mixed this formula for almost two years, since Damian's death, with only a brief break to craft a new origin for classic villain Two Face. When we see Darkseid's silhouette, it conjures not fear or excitement, but relief. Batman's suit is failing, his body is infected with alien bacteria, all symbolic of the corrupting nature of Apokalips. But the great corrupter of this story is not a hell-world, but the natural decay inflicting a tale carried far beyond its natural length. Time to bring the boy, and the story, back to life.

    Batman-News - Jesse Kennedy Nov 20, 2014

    Hellbat Bruce beats the mess out of a ton of folks. He is angry. He is powerful. Despite a few oddities in the story, this issue does what it needs to do to further the Robin Rises saga and ramp up the excitement for the conflict to come. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 19, 2014

    Batman and Robin remains one of my most anticipated titles to pick up each month, but it seems that somewhere this issue fell a little short of the epic we were previously getting.  It's one fight scene after another and besides for one scene where the Bat Family got back together again......... Well there wasn't much to this.  Unlike the last couple of issues, I felt myself being confused by some of the panels here and it really just feels like a filler issue to get us to next month's big fight.  I still enjoyed the issue enough, but it's not really what I was hoping for.

    Now, I did enjoy reading this, and I am continuing to love this story. But really, there's not much substance behind this. So I have to give Batman and Robin #36… Read Full Review

    We're now one issue (plus a one-shot) away from the conclusion of Robin Rises, and Peter Tomasi has ramped up the action in this issue. Batman going on a full out offense to get his son back makes sense after everything that's happened in this mega-arc. The teaming up of Red Robin, Red Hood, Batgirl, and Cyborg is a lot of fun as well. While there's not much character development in this issue, the action heavy issue still works, because it's building on the developments from previous issues. Patrick Gleason's artwork is mostly great, but I still think he has issues drawing Batgirl's face. Next month, we'll get the conclusion of this story, and if you're not on board all ready, you need to get on now. Highly recommended.

    With this much of action, this issue read really fast. Yet this arc continues to stay a great read.
