Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason have been one of DC's most consistent top teams over the last few years. This book is no exception.
Following the death of Damian (Robin) Wayne, Bruce (Batman) Wayne is spinning further into the depths of depression. His method of dealing with the death of his son is not good for any one else. Batman takes some drastic measures that would seem crazy but, as anyone who has a child will tell you, parents will do anything for their children.
The combination of Tomasi's emotional writing and the great art of Gleason makes for a sure fire hit. And pity anyone who gets in Batman's way...
"Batman and Robin" gets one of my highest recommendations. I would recommend picking up all of the collections in this series.
