    Batman Annual #27 doesn't do much to elicit excitement for the upcoming Azrael ongoing, but it does provide a fun exploration of the new Batman and Robin. For that, I'd recommend it to any fan of the new team. Read Full Review

    I was really on the fence about picking this issue up but ultimately decided to because I'm such a huge fan of Fabian Nicieza's writing. Not surprisingly, he does a great job of developing character and plot in his story, which was nicely complimented by the great art by J. Calafiore. Unfortunately, the Lil' Gotham story was far too short and the final story was completely worthless, meaning that you are really paying $4.99 for just the lead story. While it is a fun read, it isn't worth nearly double the price of a regular comic. If you were to dump the last story and lower the price, this issue would shoot up the Rankings on the strength of the main story. Read Full Review
