    Funny, I heard a writer talk at a Con not so long ago, saying that editorial control over writing has increased massively since the 80s. I rather liked the line, personally. If nothing else, correctly using a classical quote shows wonders for a character's class. I was more annoyed that Damian later used earphones, instead of reading Bruce's message on parchment, written with a quill, or on vinyl.
    I would like to say for the record that this is the FIRST TIME I've withheld dong when someone was so desperately asking for some.

    Damian isn't a typical American kid. 'That line' seemed totally natural for someone with Damian's upbringing.

    Second favorite Batman book (after Snyder's Batman). I gave it a 4. My only complaint is the tension between Bruce & Damian feels a bit over the top at times.

    For me Batman and Robin has been really, really friggin good. If Batman is a 10 then Batman and Robin has been a 9.5. I really, really enjoyed the Nobody storyline. The artwork is top notch. Overall it's been a fantastic series so far for me.

    The first arc was entirely too long. Art wasn't as good / consistant as it was on the 3 part arc they did in the first series. Issue #8 was the best of the run though. I'm going to give the 3 part arc with all the robins a chance and then see if this will still remain on the pull list.

    I still don't see any big differences in Damian's character as opposed to the way Morrison writes him. Also, I like how Tomasi's Bruce at least tries to father Damian in this title. In Inc. #1, I wasn't too happy with Bruce being relaxed about Damian killin Otto Netz.


    Paraphrased:

    B: you said you wouldn't kill.

    R: yeah, but I had to that time.

    B: Well.....ok. Go put this device on that truck.

    I thought Bruce was likewise to relaxed about Damian killing Nobody in B&R. I was expecting more of a "talking to" there then what we got in the issue since Bruce has a no kill policy and all. Instead it seemed to me that he brushed it aside completely.
    Characters come and go, revamped and revisited. But as long as you enjoyed them, remember them and continue to appreciate them, then that character, your hero or heroine, will always exist.

    Well, we haven't gotten anything since that issue (NoO was after it), but I'm thinking that's what this "Meeting of the Robins" will be about. I feel like it will still be addressed. But, we'll see.

    I'd be happy if it were addressed in this next arc by Bruce, not just by the former Robins. I feel he's the one who should be addressing this not his other sons though I am doubtful that this will ever happen based on what transpired in issue 8.

    Lol I love the idea of a Robin intervention.

    Dick: Damian, we all think you really need to stop killing people.
    Tim: Yes Damian, it's wrong, and as much as you annoy me, you're better than this.
    Jason: .....I'm sure he had it coming

    Tomasi has finally hit his stride with the character of Damian as of issue #10. I hope that he writes in the guest appearances of all the previous Robins in a storyarc in the future. Seeing these guys in costume together in the same pages interacting was worth buying issue #10 alone. I loved the dynamic between Dick, Jason, Tim, and Damian. Classic. As for Tim and Damian at the end of the issue... they may be more similar than we thought... at least in terms of Damian's interpretation.

    Who knows what is left of Tim's history, but he wasn't even able to kill the guy that murdered his father. After he spent an entire issue setting up his death. I really enjoyed the issue and B&R so far but it wasn't a very good Tim. Not that Lobdell's was.
