    Tomasi's given us more Robin in Batman books then I think pretty much the entirety of 2018 .

    One of the villains revealed the AK name and the villain father revealed this character name and surname...

    spoilers:
    Another Arkham.. Of course that she is insane..
    Late Teens. Pushing twenty..TOO YOUNG. I wonder WHO trained her.. The league of assasins kidnapped her years ago and made her follow her ideals and obsession for the bat?

    Yeah, I'll wait to give it a "meh" because at least the character was not shoe horned into being tied to Batmans past like they seem to do so often.

    I gotta say that while this storyline isn't necessarily "living up to the hype" of being cross-platform promotional big whatevers ... I genuinely didn't see that coming. I mean it's tropey as all get out, "that's comics" to the max, and so forth but like ... I kind of like this a lot better than any other option would have been. I mean way to go literal.

    While the reveal was somewhat underwhelming, I find that the Arkham Knight has a mixture of dedication, values and delusions which make the character very intriguing. I can't say for sure if it (and the character) will last, but so far I'm really interested in the story, even if I can more or less suspect why Arkham Knight became what he is.

    Personally I always found that Tomasi struggles with "epics" and most, if not all of them, end up on whimper. So in a way I'm glad this is not being built as some epic plot, but is more your regular Batman type of story.

    As for the character, I think that League of Assassins connection would kinda bring it full circle and explain why Arkham Knight is interested in "saving" Damian.

    That's kind of why I came back to Detective when it was announced Tomasi was taking over. I don't go in expecting the seminal works of our time, but I'm almost always entertained. There's a consistency to Tomasi that I enjoy that certain swing-for-the-fences creators lack.

    And, as I mentioned in the last issue thread, outside of Morrison he's the only writer I've read who can write Damian w/o driving me up a wall. I actually like the character in his hands.

    I'll second all of the above.

    I'm surprised they don't just use the Telltale villain.

    I was reading in one place about Detective Comics 1003.. Maybe this place confirmed me that Astrid training and ideals are related with her mother..

    I saw 2 suspicious women names related with Jeremiah past and are Alyce Sinner and Fright.. I heard that the first was related with one cult, like Astrid..

    This is the most I've enjoyed Damian. I've never really been a fan but I found him to be my favorite part of the issue.


    Can someone do a quick Arkham family tree for me?
