    Don Kramer's art was very nice. I really like how he draws Batman and Robin. But, the best was Kramer's new Bat-plane design. That looked wicked! Read Full Review

    In The End: I have no idea who the killer is and frankly, I don't want to know or even try to guess until the reveal is made. This is a well crafted mystery, which is the best way to re-establish Batman for "One Year Later." Don Kramer's art was solid as well, especially his Batman with the large bat symbol and the long, flowing cape. Kramer, along with Bair and Faucher, really made the scene between Batman and Bullock work, and I especially enjoyed the sequence at the end. The cutting back and forth between Batman's confrontation with Harvey and Robin's fight with Killer Moth was great. This story arc is coming along nicely, and I have faith that Robinson will keep up this level of quality for the rest of the arc. Read Full Review

    As you can tell, I revealed very little of the story itself, and that's for a reason: It's a mystery. I'm not going to reveal who was killed, who wasn't, who's accused, etc. That's for the reader to discover on his own. What I have mentioned is how very strong this story is and how well drawn it is as well. It's also my suggestion that people need to start reading this book. This is probably the best written and drawn Batman in a very long time. I'm going to miss this team when the new permanent team comes aboard. (A couple of new guys called Grant Morrison & Andy Kubert.) So until that new team comes on, read this title and Detective Comics and enjoy one hell of a Batman story. Read Full Review

    So what do we have in the end product? The beginnings of a great story and so far it has been flawless in all regards. Can Robinson keep up the pace? Will Batman find the killer? Will Robin come to terms with the loss of his father? Will Harvey Dent give in to the monster inside? Only way to find out is to read on, and I certainly intend to. Read Full Review
