    If you're ready for (the real) Batman's return, you should probably be jumping on here (or better yet, last issue). So far, it's shaping up nicely. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Dan Horn Apr 11, 2010

    There's a lot going on in Batman and Robin, but it's not a complete cerebral overload like Tony Daniel's Batman travesty. The mysteries presented are interesting enough to keep you turning the pages and buying the book month after month. There's a real feeling of progression as issue 11 begins blending many of the series' as of yet loosely commingled components. Issue 12 should see all of the past year's events coming to a climactic head, leading up to Morrison's Return of Bruce Wayne miniseries beginning in May. Read Full Review

    IGN - Tim Lenaghan Apr 7, 2010

    Needless to say this series is currently running at full throttle as DC approaches the Return of Bruce Wayne. Morrison continues to add new layers to his multi-year run on Batman, and the fact that with each new issue he has me clamoring to reread previous installments can't be overstated. Read Full Review

    Batman and Robin is a title that is mixing in a lot of mystery and building several stories to a much larger climax. This isn't all just about Bruce Wayne being missing. I like this comic book and I definitely think it's as good as some of the previous ones in this series. I do think someone coming in cold would be a little lost but it is only the second issue of the arc so there isn't much to catch up on. I highly recommend this comic. Read Full Review

    Comics that make you want to go back and reread other comics to see what you missed the first time around. That's good stuff. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Aziz Bawany Apr 8, 2010

    Though I always want more, this issue was a solid effort by Morrison to further along the story. I was hoping for more of the off-the-wall action shown earlier in earlier issues but the show must go on. Let’s hope the next part is a little more dynamic because the art team screams for some higher energy action with less talk and more punches. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - DS Arsenault Apr 7, 2010

    If the ads for the return of Bruce Wayne (including the cover caption) doesn't have you chomping at the bit for this issue, buy it anyway. Good story. Good characters. And the art is fun to look at, even if it doesn't propel the story onward. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Scott Hunter Apr 10, 2010

    Overall, though, the art in this issue is more good than bad, and gains a thumbs up from me. Batman and Robin has done a lot over the last few months to recover from that lackluster second arc, and has worked its way to the top of my reading pile. This installment doesn't let it down, and it's actually got me intrigued about the Return of Bruce Wayne, which is quite an achievement in itself. Grant Morrison has successfully pulled off a compelling mystery plot and, whilst I doubt it'll make any converts of non-Batman fans, if you're fond of the Cowled Crusader then this is something you'll definitely want to pick up. With a combination of strong writing and overall-good art, Batman and Robin #11 manages to net itself three and a half stars out of five. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Apr 8, 2010

    This issue was really close to earning a Buy It verdict, but the flaws are too noticeable and too jarring to justify it. For Clarke, it is just a matter of tightening up his consistency and, honestly, not drawing that horrible splash page. For Morrison, however, it is all about quitting when he is ahead. There are flashes of his trademark brilliance all over this issue, but he tarnishes it by falling back on his unnecessary inserts and nonsense writing. Read Full Review

    Either way, the way they handle the resurrection will be what defines whether I stay on the title or not. Read Full Review
