...okay, against my will I kinda like this. Though I'm sorta hoping the thing Damian gets from each of the other Robins is a beating.


Also, no way in hell Tim doesn't know who Caravaggio is. Tim is the smart Robin.

Yeah, I assumed when I saw the solicits that it was going to be straight-up fighting, but this sounds a lot more interesting--especially when we see just how Damian "beats" Tim.

Yeah, Time was the one who was an Erté fan before he even became Robin, he knows his art.

I'd call it Tim having more of a sense of humour than Damian. Anyone with half a brain knows who Caravaggio is and what he did, even if you can't name the time period he worked in or a piece of his work.

This art is... weird. The scene in the suits looks very clumsily drawn, like he's not used to drawing shirt and ties. Then it veers randomly into the cartoony.

Tim and Damian sniping at each other like that gets old very quickly.

I can sort of see this as an interesting plot, but something about how it's presented just doesn't feel right to me, not sure why.

Is it terrible that I still feel that Damian needs a serious beating so he can learn he is not superior?

On a totally opposite note: Honestly, he is just 10. Plus, I still just have an issue that - and I don't care how trained he is - Bruce is letting a 10 year old endanger his life on a regular basis. I work in adoption, I work with 10 year olds. In even comic universe Wonder Woman or ANY OTHER SUPERHERO should have put a stop to this.

Since he is there in the comics as a total arrogant badass though where he can fend for himself? Yes. Beating.

Pretty sure thinking about killing someone and actually killing them is pretty different since, you know, in one of those situations the person is still alive.

Pah, a mere piffling detail I'm sure!

I liked this issue. It kinda also says something about Jason still having that need to be with his family despite issues (emergency call, making a comment about the portrait sitting, etc).

I don't think Damian fully understands the difference between doing and thinking about killing someone.

Though I am wondering what Jason's turn is going to be like. I'm putting out that I hope Damian is going to use Jason's most precious memory against him (unlikely and would leave a lot of questions of "How?"), but would be cool.

i have to say. i like the Robin banter... its odd Nightwang seems like the middle child (trying to bring peace between the others) Jason is the "brother with an attitude" Tim is the smart snarky one, and Damian is the bratty younger brother with something to prove.

I can't tell any of them apart in the portrait scene. I know Damien and Bruce are actually related, but what's everyone else's excuse? Batman definitely has a type. Even Alfred has suddenly got a full head of black hair.

IIRC Tim wasn't keen on it being known that he was on speaking terms with Jason so they might just be keeping up appearances in front of the other brothers.

I do love how all of the older 'Robins' are united in their disbelief over what Damian is doing.

It's kind of sad that Damian is so concerned with being the best and proving himself that he's missing the most obvious way to do it. The way Tim did, making Robin his own thing with his own strengths and earning Bruce's respect that way.

It does feel a bit like they're shoving the Jason-Damian similarities at us rather hard though. To the point where I feel like Bruce is trying to make up for his failures with Jason through Damian. Could make for an interesting confrontation between the two though.

And I really need an icon of Jason facepalming.

Rereading Damian's plan now I'm imagining him having three sets of green -feathered underwear mouted in plaques on his wall.

Dick - "But wait, Tim's costume didn't have green-feathered underwear"

Damian - "He didn't wear them with his costume, he just wore them"

Tim (quietly) - "They make me feel cool"
