From the pages of the best-selling BRIGHTEST DAY and GREEN LANTERN CORPS comes the new regular creative team of writer Peter J. Tomasi and artist Patrick Gleason! Kicking off the action is "Dark Knight, White Knight" part 1 of 3, as Bruce Wayne returns from the dead and Gotham City finds itself locked in the grip of chaos! Dick Grayson and Damian Wayne come face-to-face with what could possibly be the strangest Bat Villain yet. Who is the White Knight, and why is he hell-bent on making Gotham City into Heaven on Earth?

    In just the first few pages of their first issue on this series, Tomasi, Gleason and Gray have sold me. I am delighted with the new creative team. DC has locked me in for more. Read Full Review

    After one issue I'm already sold on Tomasi and Gleason's run on Batman and Robin. It's delivered everything I want from this series: great writing, exceptional art and a plot that could be as odd as what Morrison accomplished during his tenure on the title. After a three month lull, Batman and Robin has returned to greatness. Hallelujah! Read Full Review

    Despite my nitpicking this issue was great. It's opening was heartwarming, it's ending was a classic cliffhanger, and the stuff in-between made for an excellent read. The worst part is having to wait till issue #21. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Benjamin Birdie Feb 10, 2011

    Overall, this issue is a bit of a shaky start. Dick and Damian are certainly well delineated from previous Batmans and Robins, even though the tone isn't necessarily consistent from this run to Grant Morrison's previous one. Following up one of the best Batman comics ever though is no enviable task, so I think I'll give this team, which proved itself admirably on previous ventures, a few issues to -- in the parlance of the acrobat -- get their footing.

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Feb 16, 2011

    This issue is definitely on the bubble between Check It and Buy It, but falls just a bit short. I will openly admit that I might have gotten too excited about this creative team's debut and that could be clouding my judgment, but I was a bit let down by this issue. There are definitely flashes of everything that I hoped for and more, but a lot of it fails to live up to the high standards this team has set for themselves. Read Full Review
