I thought that it was well paced, I really enjoy Walker's art, and most importantly, Tomasi captures a Batman and Robin dynamic that we haven't seen in... years. THIS is the kind of story we should've been getting in the New 52/Rebirth era.

    There's just something right about Batman and Robin working together again. Classic in iconography, contemporary in dynamic.
    Tomasi's Batman and Robin is easily my favourite Bat run. I've never been a fan of the whole letting regular kids fight crime so a run that explored the parental angle rather than a crime fighting duo was very welcome.

    It was refreshing to see Dick the Robin cycle finally in BB.

    Yeah Priest does a solid Damian.

    Morrison
    Tomasi
    Kelly and Lanzing
    Orlando
    Jurgens
    Taylor
    Seeley
    Gleason
    Dini
    Miller are all writers who get and do a solid Damian.

    Some writers have shown that they get and are able to write the character but have knowingly twisted him for different reasons

    Percy [when not regressing him for development eg GA]
    Tynion [when Tim isn't around eg Batman vs TMNT]
    Synder [when not using him as an insert for his kids has proven that he gets Damian e.g DOTF]
    King [when not pandering to tumblr eg Robin War]

    I don't see it being Ric at all. Not to mention whoever it is has long hair (as seen in the last page when removing the mask). I have to say I am scratching my head wondering who it could be. I hope the reveal isn't a big letdown.

    Another solid issue. The Knight is turning out to be a better villain than I expected. Good story so far.

    Great art. Walker is new to me and Iím already a big fan.

    Good to see Damian with Batman. And already mentioned, Tomasi handles him so good.

    ďYour city? I donít recall anyone ever having give it to you.Ē That was a pretty great line.

    Batman in the daytime feels kinda weird, but in a good way.

    Have no idea who the AK might be.

    Whoever he is, it's hard not to love him. He made a needlepoint tapestry of all the Robins that includes STEPHANIE BROWN. She's down in front and half hidden by the candle stick, but she made the wall decor! The Arkham Knight is the hero we deserve.
