    I'm not sure how directly this all ties into the upcoming "Return of Bruce Wayne" story, but this is probably a good place to jump on (if you're not already on the bus). Read Full Review

    Fortunately I still have enough brain function for that. I have issues with how Morrison executed his plot in this issue, but the core characterization remains very strong. As mentioned, Batman and Th Squire display a strong dynamic. Alfred once again steals the show in his brief scene. The villains are memorable in their own ways. Other than the out-of-place Batwoman, Morrison fires on all cylinders when it comes to his cast. Hopefully as the arc continues to grow and take shape, some of the pacing problems will be eliminated. Regardless of what happens, we don't have very long to wait for issue #8. It's a testament to how quickly Morrison won me over again that the thought excites me. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Benjamin Birdie Feb 1, 2010

    Morrison has created an interesting structure in "Batman and Robin:" Cleanly segmented storylines of three issues each, yet each one joined together by an overarching plot. It's hard to imagine that Bruce Wayne really will be crawling out of that Lazarus Pit considering DC has already solicited the mini-series in which he makes his actual return, but this is still a great story to watch unfold.

    I'm not saying this is Final Crisislevel of channel zapping or that you will not understand this comic. It is, actually, quite a straight forward tale. However, you will have to work for it and may even want to reread it again just to make sure you got it all straight in your head. Like all Grant Morrison stories, I think this will make for a much better trade read, though this is still a very good read. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Jan 31, 2010

    This issue is very much a "one step forward, one step back" situation as there seems to be a negative aspect to counter every positive aspect in this issue. The end result is a very middleof theroad issue that features Morrison at his best (the Talia/Alfred scene) and at his worst (the Batwoman business). Along the same lines, Stewart's art wasn't quite what I was hoping for, but he makes up for some design issues with some very solid layouts and panel choices. In summation, you'll neither hate nor love this issue, but you'd probably be entertained if you read it. Read Full Review

    This arc looks like it's going to be good, but some parts of this story seemed to be real head-scratchers for me. My advice: pick it up and strap yourself in anyway. Something important is happening in the Bat-world. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Jan 30, 2010

    Batman and Robin #7 was another disappointing issue that Morrison delivered. Morrison clearly was rushing through the story in this issue. Along with a giant editorial mistake this issue did not have any flow to it. If you are looking for a Batman title to read I do not recommend picking this series up other than the first arc with Quietly. Instead, I recommend picking up Batman or Streets of Gotham to get your Batman fix as Morrison has been very disappointing in Batman and Robin. Read Full Review
