Back in the eighties, a comic proclaiming "War of the Robins" would have sat on the shelf in a big fat stack, unsold.
The guy with the Batarang through his head did it to himself.
Over in Wayne Manor, Bruce and his Robins and butler are getting a family portrait painted. When I say Robins, I mean the Robins that haven't died and come back to life. Although Red Hood is on the cover, so we'll see how he comes into the picture.
While they're posing for the portrait, Tim Drake and Damian bicker constantly.
I think Damian is bringing respectability to the sidekick! And gore and murder and horror and a prick-like attitude.
Bruce tries to get the little bastards under control but Tim and Damian storm off. I like how they're really portrayed as young siblings vying for their father's attention. And Dick Grayson is old enough and has experienced enough (even time, himself, as Batman) that he can relate to Batman as an adult and a friend.
Later in the week, Damian calls an emergency meeting of his siblings, including Jason Todd.
Damian seems to have a bit of a self-esteem problem. Or he simply knows he's the best Robin yet and needs the other guys to know it as well.
And the older two Robins have a bit of a rivalry as well.
Tomasi has been brilliant with Alfred's character in this series.
And that pisses of Tim so that he attacks Damian.
Batman has too many fucking kids.
Batman and Robin #10 Rating: +1 Ranking. This comic was simply about the relationships between the Robins (mostly Tim and Damian) and it has heart. These damn comic books don't need to be filled with bad guys fighting good guys across 18 of the 20 pages to hold the reader's interest. Write a compelling story, whether or not it includes fisticuffs, and the readers will continue to pick up the comic. This is another series that has not really had a bad issue.
