    Next week marks the halfway point for this series, so things should really heat up. You probably won't want to miss an issue from here on out, so don't skip this one. Read Full Review

    Brisson brings intelligent thematic work into the backstory of the new character of the Sculptor, and brings back the opening flashback of the series in a well done issue. Read Full Review

    This issue really went deep. The emotional strings it plucked take this issue to a 4 . Read Full Review

    There certainly is a vision in place for a Cassandra on the other side of the trauma she's experienced and what she's yet to traverse, and the strongest element of her execution so far has been to establish who she is beyond the violence she was brought in at the earliest available opportunity. What remains is seeing her through the darkness and out the other side, and as of this issue, I remain fully confident it will happen. Read Full Review

    If you have youngsters reading comics, I might advise against exposing them to the content of this particular issue. Extensive and graphic violence is depicted against very young children, and I can see that not sitting too well with a younger audience. Aside from my cautionary warning, this was a great issue and really drove home how despicably evil the character of Mother truly is. Read Full Review

    The art again follows theEternal norm of great pictures from artists you may not have heard of. Pina and Sudzuka team up to put us inside the head of Sculptor yet it looks drastically different from what we saw a week ago. The strength in these "head trip" issues is that there are subtle changes to the pages, but never too much to cause a distraction. I especially appreciate the few panels we had of the Dark Knight. He look sketchy, dark and like our true hero. Overall, another solid effort from theEternal team and I'm looking forward to how they wrap up the first half of the title in next week's issue #13.

    While this issue didn't do enough to change my overall opinion of this series, I enjoyed it enough not to get angry while reading it.  Ed Brisson doesn't give fans the answers we crave, but he twists things enough to make us look at the book in a different, more exciting way.  The art is standard fare with nothing to wow the reader, but nothing to offend him either.  I have enjoyed Brisson's two issues and while it's going to take a bit more for me to recommend this book again, it's heading in the right direction.

    Issue #12 of Batman and Robin Eternal gives us Grayson's take on what Bluebird saw happened in the past last issue. Though this issue offers a lot of the drama it misses out on some of the humor we've been able to see in other issues – most of that humor comes from Tim Drake and Jason Todd, which were both absent this issue. Bluebird is mostly absent during the issue, but appears again at the end giving us a bit of a lighthearted spin on the otherwise grim tale of the past as told by Brisson. The artwork this issue delivered some great scenes as both Pina and Sudzuka worked well to create an issue with fluent work, all made the better by the colors of Rauch. Read Full Review
