Batman and Robin have found The Absence, but a deathtrap awaits them. How do you prove a negative? How do you escape nothing? When there's nothing at the center of a life, madness can stick its claws in!

    While the book isn't perfect by any means, both Cornell and McDaniel should be commended for this brief run. McDaniel's work was stronger here than his work recently on Detective Comics, and Cornell's script was more entertaining than any of Knight and Squire thus far. Both these talents stepped up and took full advantage of this opportunity, and it made for a story which was worth the $9 I spent for "The Sum of Her Parts." Read Full Review

    Batman and Robin #19 was an enjoyable read. Cornell deserves credit for being able to deliver a story that even a reader like myself who dislikes the Batman, Inc. concept still be able to enjoy this story. If you enjoy an interesting character story then I would recommend giving Batman and Robin #19 a try. Read Full Review

    From the moment she first appeared, I simply have no interest in Uno Nemo or what her petty problems are that drove her to become a psychopath. I HOPE we don't see her return, but I half expect her to, if for no other reason than to spite me for this review. Cornell can write, and McDaniel can draw, but for this arc, the combo falls completely flat. I say skip Batman and Robin #19, and see if it gets better next time. Read Full Review
