ABSOLUTE EDITION SHOWCASE
BATMAN & ROBIN: BATMAN REBORN
By Grant Morrison
Following the events of Final Crisis and the Battle For The Cowl, Bruce Wayne is gone. Dick Grayson, also known as Nightwing, was the very first Boy Wonder. As Robin, he fought alongside the Caped Crusader until he stood on his own as Nightwing. With the original Batman gone, Dick has taken on the mantle of the Bat. Tim Drake, longtime crimefighting partner and Robin to Bruce Wayne, moves on to become Red Robin. Dick chooses Bruce's biological son, Damian, to become his partner...his Robin.
But this isn't a smooth partnership. Damian Wayne is also the grandson of the international terrorist Ra's al Ghul and was raised by the League of Assassins... groomed to be his grandfather's successor.
This new Dynamic Duo have got their work cut out for them battling Gotham's most vile villains, including the Clown Prince of Crime himself, the Joker.
Can Batman & Robin become a cohesive unit in time to save Gotham? Can Dick bear the weight of the mantle left behind by his mentor while another "Robin" tries to dole out his own twisted version of justice? Will Damian's second nature be their downfall?
• BATMAN & ROBIN 1-16
• BATMAN: THE RETURN 1
This volume chronicles from the moment Dick puts on the cape and cowl until the return of Bruce Wayne. Part of this edition features Jason Todd/Red Hood as the antagonist, but it is definitely my least favorite version of my favorite character.
The Absolute Edition naturally has a stronger binding and larger pages. This oversized 16" edition features a vibrant hardcover (no dust jacket), ribbon bookmark and a detailed protective slipcase. The Absolute Editions that DC Comics have released are a very unique way to experience these stories and I've fallen in love with the format. I would recommend this particular one to any Dick Grayson or Damian Wayne fan.
