Damian Wayne is bratty and super arrogant, but boy, can the kid fight! He trained with the League of Shadows from the moment he could walk (hence the title of this volume). Now throw this arrogant little prick into the mix along with folks like Batman, Alfred, and Nightwing and you got yourself some Wayne drama! The Dynamic Duo couldn't be any more dynamic if you tried. It would be like pairing a bull with a very feisty chihuahua (a chihuahua that could kill you with its bare paws).

This is great series that pairs well with Scott Snyder's New 52 Batman run.

In Batman and Robin's 8-issue start in the DC New Universe, Batman is still playing the role of daddy and Gotham's protector at the same time and having trouble keeping his natural-born-killer son in check. Robin is conflicted by wanting more affection by his father and at the same time, Bruce feels he must "fix" Robin's killer ways. Meanwhile, an old friend/enemy of Batman's arrives in Gotham to "fix" Batman's lack of killer instinct with the villains he runs across. After convincing Robin to part ways with his father and join him, it's up to Bruce to get his son back and stop the man, dubbed NoBody, before he conditions Robin into killing once again!

This hardcover edition comes with a nice slipcase with the first issue cover as the cover art. It has all the textless and black and white covers as well as lots of sketches, cover designs, and character designs. There's even a neat story proposal by Peter J. Tomasi as well! Speaking of Tomasi, the story here's done really well with the villain being only the "side-story" if you will and the main chunk of the story being the disconnect between Bruce and Damian. He writes the story in a way where Damian's a little brat but you can tell, from Bruce's actions, why he's the way he is and how NoBody can manipulate him so. The art by Patrick Gleason is done well with lots of really neat pages dedicated to Batman, the duo, or NoBody for every issue. The story progression is done well and it was just an overall enjoyable experience.

I am ashamed to admit that I didn't give this series a fair shot when it first came out. Having been a diehard fan of Grant Morrison's phenomenal work on Batman: The Black Glove Deluxe Edition to Absolute Batman & Robin: Batman Reborn, all of which heavily feature his son Damian, I was skeptical about another creative team being able to do the character justice. Damian, once a thoroughly reviled character, became one of the most treasured Robins under Grant Morrison's capable care. Having read through Batman & Robin, Vol 1, I am very happy to say that I was wrong.

Up to the point that this story picks up, Damian had been Robin to Dick Grayson's Batman, but it is immediately clear that the Dynamic between him and his father will be quite different. Peter Tomasi masterfully captures the relationship between these two very driven, very damaged characters, and Patrick Gleason's breathtaking artwork makes said relationship a joy to see unfold.

The main crux of this volume is Bruce and Damian's struggle to define their relationship. Are they partners or father and son? How can Bruce demand Damian's obedience when he doesn't trust him? To make matters worse, and old enemy from Bruce's past has returned and has his sights set on Damian. Will their already fragile relationship crumble under this added pressure, or will they find a way to work together?

The conclusion of this arc is incredibly satisfying, and does a good job of not being black or white. There are no easy answers when it comes to family, and trust must be earned, not given. Out of the many Batman titles currently on the shelf, Batman and Robin ranks among the best, surpassing even Snyder's Batman, in my opinion, though you would never know that looking at the sales and lack of buzz surrounding the series. It is a shame that more people aren't availing themselves of this excellent series, because Tomasi and Gleason knock it out of the park on a monthly basis. When all is said and done, this is an incredible series that excels at character development, something that is fast becoming a lost art. If you are a Batman fan, or a fan of comics in general you owe it to yourself to pick this up. A treasure and a must buy.
