Well thank God there’s something here to hold us over until October when Batman: Arkham City is finally released. Part of a five issue run, Arkham City is written by the legendary Paul Dini, and so far is a nice filler for the story between Arkham Asylum and the new game. I wasn’t too crazy about the art, but it was still above average to me.
So I’ve been doing a lot of Batman reading. And a lot of it happens to be written by Grant Morrison, who a lot of people love and a lot of people hate. I just previously reviewed Batman and Robin Volume 1, which is basically the adventures of the newest Batman: Dick Grayson and his sidekick Robin: Now the young, and mouthy Damian Wayne. I loved that trade even when I hadn’t yet seen when Damian Wayne first showed up on the scene. But now I finally am after reading Batman and Son.
He has time after time redefined comic titles, whether it be the X-men, Superman or Batman. He did it with Bruce Wayne, and now he gets a chance to do it with the newest Batman, Dick Grayson.
