As Robin does all he can to keep his own killer instincts at bay, Batman focuses his energies on Nobody, the deadly enigma from Bruce's past who has arrived in Gotham and is hellbent on forcing him to accept a new world crimefighting view even as he infiltrates the Waynes' personal lives.

    Move over DETECTIVE COMICS, BATMAN, and DARK KNIGHT, this is the Batman book to read. It's a great team/duo book that focuses just as much on team dynamic as it does on story. It's a well balanced story, and the book has really helped further develop Damian as a character. Nobody, the new villain trained by Ducard, who trained Batman, is a great addition to the Rogue Gallery because of his fighting ability and his intelligence. Read Full Review

    After last month's bump in the road, it's good to see Batman and Robin back on track and sailing smoothly. This issue also makes this arc's villain, Morgan, quite the imposing figure who could finally find the thread to pull to unravel the Dynamic Duo once and for all. Read Full Review

    Two scenes come to mind that exhibit how awesome Patrick Gleason's work is. Robin confronts two criminals and one of them mocks "the little kid in the costume" and pulls out an iPhone for a photo opportunity, only for the Boy Wonder to slug him right in the face. Another is a two page spread where Batman jumps from the Batwing and into the alley in order to help Damian as you see the plane positioned near the moon and the coloring of the night sky made it all that much better. This book gets better with every issue and I'm looking forward to #4. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Nov 9, 2011

    "Batman and Robin" continues to turn in pleasant, enjoyable issues; Tomasi and Gleason have a firm grasp on their cast, the plot moves well, and the pages are some of the best of Gleason's career. "Batman and Robin" briefly looked to be losing its way after Morrison finished up his 16-issue run, but the title is clearly in good hands once more. Read Full Review

    Scorewise, this comic was an easy 7 1/2, with a shot at an 8 before the cliffhanger scene... It was that horrible. I honestly don't get why I'd want to pick up the next issue after that last page. So I can read about Batman and Robin watching a film put together by Nobody? Um yeah, no. Overlooking the last scene(which is hard to do since it's what leaves the lingering taste in my mouth), this was a really good comic book. The characterizations between Robin, Alfred and Batman were all nicely done. But that last scene... Read Full Review
