    This was a good story that I was able to just sit back and read right through and not worry about continuity. I also found it refreshing that for once, Bruce was the actual target instead of Batman. I felt that made an interesting twist as we as readers are so often used to Batman being the one in danger. I really recommend this book, it's a good quick little story. Read Full Review

    Batman and Robin has been and up and down title for me, never being consistently good enough to excite me month after month. Thank goodness this gem of a Batman and Robin installment came around. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Oct 10, 2012

    BATMAN & ROBIN continues to prove it's one of the best Bat-family books DC has to offer. While the unfolding plot isn't particularly interesting, the dynamic between Bruce and Damian once again serves as more than enough to keep me coming back for more. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 17, 2012

    At the same time we see the more dangerous version of the character as his dispatches another assassin sent by his mother and the recklessness of his youth which leads him into danger in the stories final pages as he's caught in a mob of zombies. Honestly, I could have done without the zombies, but the rest of this issue works well. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Oct 12, 2012

    A solid, emotionally-driven read complicated by the presence, however slight, of other storylines. The pick-up art towards the end also tarnishes an otherwise visually sound issue. Read Full Review

    Still, what I find amusing is that an all-out zombie outbreak still just seems like the calm before the storm. Readers all know that after the zombies are inevitably defeated, this title (like every other bat-title) will be plunged into the "Death of the Family" arc with the return of the Joker that began in last week's 'Batman' #13. But, until it does, join me back here next month for a review of the second half of Gotham's zombie outbreak. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Danielle Luaulu Oct 17, 2012

    This is a really nice book that presents Damian Wayne from a different point of view. It's refreshing to see him vulnerable, a kid, instead of the cocky brat he's usually presented as. The art is visually mismatched. Whether that's because of a miscommunication between the artists or just a bad pairing between the two is hard to tell, but it doesn't gel like it should. The art styles aren't bad, just too different from each other to be in the same book. Pick it up if you like the Bruce and Damian Wayne dynamic. Read Full Review

    I mean, it's alright. It has some good parts here and there between Bruce and Damian, but as a whole, there's nothing special to write home about, and the abrupt art switch bothered me. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Oct 10, 2012

    In the end I just asked myself "Does it feel like a Batman story?" It doesn't. "Do I care what happens next with Damian and the zombies?" I don't. And I think that's got a lot to do with how the book can't decide if it wants to be taken seriously or if it wants to be the fun comic. Read Full Review
