The art was good,but the story just doesn't do it to carry this book!

This was a fantastic story run to read! Grant Morrison did a tremendous job with handling the story and the artwork by Frank Quitely is amazing! I would've greatly enjoyed reading more adventures of these two, as the run was outstanding! I know it was a very difficult and risky task to create a "new" Batman and Robin but Morrison was able to pull it off very well!

I loved the pairing of Dick Grayson (who is my favorite DC character) with Damian Wayne (Batman's biological son). Many people say they disliked this story run but I really don't see why.
This run was honestly one of my favorites! (Well written, Great plot, Interesting character selections, etc.)

As I recall, the story continued after the death of Batman (perhaps an event long in the making but still regrettable). Damien is the son of Bruce and Talia - his only blood heir.
Dick is taking Batman's place while Damien is Robin.

I never cared for the storyline of Damien - Tim Drake being a more likable and sympathetic Robin.

DC does make good comics, as does Marvel, but arguably they fail to remember how to do so and assume far too much loyalty on the part of their readers.

This story was okay, with less than memorable characters (especially the new villain(s)). DC seems to be at a loss for good ideas and direction.

My two favorite scenes: (1) Alfred tells (the new) Batman, not to try and BE Batman, but to give his best PERFORMANCE of the Dark Knight. (2) Commish Gordon, not recognizing the new Batman screams over the radio, "Who the hell do you think you are?" to which he replies, "I'm Batman." I literally LOL'ed in the cafe I was in.

I don't really follow the batman comics but I do try and read the main 'classic' graphic novels in that universe. So I'm a bit unfamiliar with the whole 'death of batman' and all the different robins and such. But this was still easy to pick up a read for casual fans. A really cool, dark story, great art, and some cool villains make this worth reading. Didn't like the 'new' robin though but I'm not sure you're supposed to.

Beautiful art and I really enjoyed Damian's character. Nevertheless, Dick Grayson is lovely as always. :)

I LOVE THE QUITELY-MORRISON PAIR. Another stunning book by then; one of my favourite Batman books in AGES.
(They've also done We3 together, which, in my honest opinion, was one of the best graphic novels ever made).

I'd have given this 4-1/2 stars if the artwork had been cleaner. Story's good, new toys, return of a couple of old characters, a good twist -- and I LOVE the idea of a bloodthirsty Robin! You won't see THIS kid cracking jokes.
