Superman #10: "World's Smallest"



"Boys, you know how you weren't in trouble for wrecking Mister Wayne's Batcave? Well, that may no longer be as true as it was a few minutes ago."
Also, fun with Alfred and brick jokes. Check it!

Superman #2-3

"It's one thing to stand up for the right thing, and it's another thing to teach your kid to stand up for the right thing. It's harder. They see through, they know the truth, they're there all the time. They ask hard questions. And it makes you examine your own self. I know as a father, I think about that all the time, about what our kids will think of us, and how we always have this little person watching.

For Superman, you would think that would come easily or naturally, but part of what we're exploring is that although he's not technically human, he actually is human like us. Being a dad isn't a superpower. He's a dad just like everybody else. He's trying to figure this out, just like anybody else.

Whether you've had a dad or been a father, you can probably understand or relate.

Superman #1

"What Pat and I loved doing on Batman and Robin, we want to do it here, with Superman and Jonathan, but explore the father-son dynamic from a whole different angle, because Bruce and Clark are very different people. And Damian and Jonathan are incredibly different characters.

So we've got a story that's right in our wheelhouse now, to explore the father-son relationship for this first arc.

And as Pat said, we're really playing with it from the eyes of a child, looking up at a father, who is someone he loves, but at the same time is a superhero, is an incredibly powerful being. And we'll be showing how Jonathan deals with that.

4 Great Moments from Robin: Son of Batman #6

This issue was really good! Lots of moving pieces that turn out to be functional to the story (and arc) as a whole, and a credit to everybody involved, fictional and otherwise. 
 
Let's look at the 4 best moments from this surprisingly contemplative issue about Damian Wayne, what Robin means to him, and the nature of forgiveness.


Everyone knows the 'R' means 'Rabbert'. )

Robin: Son of Batman #4

Newsrama: So how would you describe the overall tone you're going for with Robin: Son of Batman?

Patrick Gleason: "How about "Punch-you-in-the-face fun! with a dash of 'Awww?'"

Seriously though, it's going to be real high-flying — literally — globe-hopping adventure with Damian and co.

Robin: Son of Batman #3

"To Damian, Batman is bigger than just being his father. Or just being Bruce. He's also an ideal and a standard. Batman saved him. Batman is the cowl and the legacy that he has to live up to. And we'll see in this book whether or not he will be able to live up to it." - Patrick Gleason
