From DC Comics and the creative team of Patrick Gleason (script and pencils), as well as Mick Gray (inks) and John Kalisz (colors), Robin Son of Batman #1 is actually quite a bit of fun and further dives into the back story of Damian Wayne, who is not only the son of Bruce Wayne, but also the grandson of Ras Al Ghul.
This issue also introduces us to a new aspect of Damian Wayne’s other life, which is chuck full of interesting characters such as Goliath, Damian’s red and rather large pet mutant bat as well as a new man-servant named Ravi, who takes care of Damian’s secret base, which is full of nasty little surprises.
A new aspect of Damien’s life which the storyline in Robin Son of Batman will be exploring is the ‘year of blood’, which seems to have been a year in which Damian was being trained as Ras Al Ghul’s ultimate replacement. A year in which he was forced to do some dark things so as to prove he was worthy of his grandfather’s empire, dark things that apparently haunt him.
This book looks like its going to be an interesting ride and Robin Son of Batman was a fun and well drawn book, which I recommend to all Batman and Robin fans.
