    Unfortunately, Fabian Nicieza doesn't shed much light on how Bruce's return impacts Dick and Damian. It's not even clear if they're aware of his return. Too much of the issue is devoted to other threads, such as Vicki Vale's exposé and Bruce's mission with Tim. However, Nicieza does handle the Dynamic Duo well, with plenty of playful banter to break up the butt-kicking. This issue reminds readers why it's so important these two remain partners. So this issue is hardly a total loss. It's just unfortunate that these various one-shots aren't one-shots at all, but pieces of a larger story. Those truly curious about how Dick and Damian will handle the return of Bruce Wayne might as well just wait until Grant Morrison tells that story next month. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Oct 16, 2010

    Every time that Fabian Nicieza takes a step forward with his high quality writing, the art forces the book to take a step back. Unfortunately, those backward steps tend to be a bit longer than those going forward. There is a lot of neat concepts being developed here and it is required reading if you want to follow the return of Bruce Wayne (even if you don't read the other Road Home oneshots), but it isn't the strongest comic, despite Nicieza's best efforts.
