I thought that this was wel done. Each issue took Batman through a different stage of his grief. Without spoiling anything, Alfred sure has to put up with a lot of crap. ( )

A powerful look at loss and how it can affect people. Batman loses his son Damian during a mission where Damian was being Robin and this breaks Bruce. His friends try to help but he's lost in grief.

Powerful stuff ( )

Oh boy! I read Vol. 3 of this title and it left me eager to continue on and I am hooked with this volume. Batman goes postal!! Wow, is he ever stuck at the anger step of grief. He doesn't kill but he's out on the town debilitating criminals anyway he can with a vengeance. A very dark and broody Batman, more so than ever. Even I wanted him to cheer up and get some closure. The other great thing here is all the Batfamily make appearances, some longer than others, even Catwoman!, to try and help the Bat release the hate and deal with the death. But they all kind of give a bit of detail as to what is going on in their stories too, which I enjoyed, since I read most but not all of the other series. Finally the issue where Batman kidnaps Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E. is awesome! There is an interesting new character as well ... could it be the new Robin?? Great volume. I didn't read V1 or 2 but I'll be sure to continue on with 5 now. ( )

Wow. The previous three volumes of the Batman and Robin title have been up and down. Solid, but not always my favorite Bat title, but this one. Wow. It was amazing. The first twenty one pages didn’t have one word on them, and yet the story was so obvious and so very impactful. Another single page that I loved was the blue colored page of Two Face flipping his coin with only one word. ‘No’. It just totally hit me solidly in the feels.

Batman goes a little off the deep end, goes really dark, and Alfred tries in every way he can think of (and with the help of everyone Batman has trained, Nightwing, Jason Todd, Batgirl, Red Robin, as well as a team up with Catwoman, and a very weird sorta assist from Frankenstein.

It’s a broodier than usual Batman title (and that’s saying something), but one of the bright spots is the introduction of Carrie Kelley as Damian’s former ‘acting coach’, and then Titus’ dog walker. I’m not sure exactly where they’re going with the character, but for the moment it was an interesting introduction with many possibilities.

I got this advanced galley through Netgalley on behalf of DC Entertainment. ( )
