From DC Comics and the creative team of Peter J. Tomasi (writer) Patrick Gleason (artist), Mick Gray (inker) and John Kalisz (colorist), Batman and Robin #37 has in no way been made into the pivotal and important issue that it is! ROBIN is back from the Dead!!!
In most ways, Robin, the Boy Wonder has been around since the earliest days of DC comics and the vaunted age of super heroes. While we may not be talking about Dick Grayson, the original Robin, we are none the less talking about the best and most well-known beloved side kick ever to have helped a hero keep a city safe from the clutches of some vile and evil criminal mastermind.
It wasn’t a double sized issue and neither did it have an alternate 3D or foil cover! The seeming conclusion to the rise of Robin and Bruce Wayne’s quest to save his only son, was a fun and very good story, with good art and a lot of very good action. But, something was missing and I say that because there was no real celebration surrounding Batman’s triumph in saving his son from the dead. So then either Damian is not really back from the dead or DC dropped the ball by not making a big deal of Robin’s return.
Either way however, it was an enjoyable issue which sees Batman give up almost every ounce of his life energy battling none other than Darkseid and his son Kaliban, on the planet Apokolips in order to save his son from death.
