    Ultimately, Ray Fawkes' story feels a little undercooked, with Damian racing to Al Ghul Island to discover someone has stolen items from the Year of Blood vault - that said, he's setting up some nice beats through the women in Damian's life, including his mother Talia and his former partner NoBody.

    All in all, I really enjoyed this issue, but did find that the story did jump drastically from location to location…it felt a little rushed, as if a finite number of issues were remaining before the book was cancelled. Hopefully this rushing feeling ends and Fawkes is able to bring the redemptive Damians story to a successful conclusion. Read Full Review

    This is some pretty standard comic fanfare. Good guys vs bad guys in a quest to save the world. All that is asked of you, is that you come along for the ride. While its simplicity is its greatest strength, it's also its primary failing. On top of that, the content ranges from paper thin one moment to full on exposition mode the next. I opened the review with the statement that I was going to be less harsh, and while it might not seem like it to some of you, trust me, there were plenty of opportunities to be far more critical than I was.

    Hm...bit of a trip up in terms of writing, however, the characters and story are still a ton of fun, and I'm intrigued about the ending.

    Okay, let's see. Robin son of Batman was the first comic book I ever bought, and it was amazing, Gleason was a surprising new writer. I really enjoyed this book, the first arc was superb and Damian's character was correctly managed... but now... without Gleason, the book has lost quality, is my opinion, sorry. Fawkes don't handles correctly the Damian's voice, the continuity is broken, the character growth is null.... and is very sad because this was a amazing book. Truly. This book will not survive to the 'Rebith' thing... and is sad because it was a very good book.

    I'm sorry, but I think DC continue doing bad decisions.

    not the smooth read i have come to expect when Pat Gleason is writing, but the story still translates well, and the characters shine through.
    some of the dialog feels a little stiff, and the art was decent but not as dynamic when Gleason is doing the pencils.
    the book ended with me really looking forward to what’s coming up next.
    and i’m sure going to miss this title once ‘DC: Rebirth’ launches.
    no Robin solo book? or even a new Batman & Robin title??? finally a decent title i can get behind, and they kill it off!!! ... that really sucks DC!!!

    It says here the writer is Patrick Gleason, but as far as I'm aware this issue is pure Ray Fawkes and the change of writers shows. I loved Fawkes' work at the end of Constantine and throughout Gotham By Midnight, but it's clear he doesn't really have a grip of the characters/story here. It really screams of someone who's been brought in to cover the last 3 issues of a cancelled series.
