Batman & Robin The Deluxe Edition : Batman Reborn (HCTPB)

by lucstclair on December 18, 2011

Bruce Wayne is presumed dead, crime in Gotham City doesn’t sleep and neither does Batman & Robin. Dick Grayson, a.k.a Nightwing and Damian, Bruce Wayne’s assassin-raised son are the new Dynamic Duo! This new Batman & Robin might be new to this game, but so are these villains. The freak show is in town and Professor Pyg is the new face of terror…literally! Plus: A blast from the past…the return of The Red Hood!

This is an exciting new beginning for these two iconic characters. Dick Grayson has to balance filling Batman’s shoes, handling Bruce Wayne’s business and dealing with a ten year old fighting machine with an attitude. Together, they are a force to be reckoned with which the villains are about to find out. Professor Pyg is a welcomed addition to a slew of Batman’s psychotic baddies. Fusing masks to the faces of his victims, this is one sick puppy! This is definitely not your father’s Batman & Robin, this is Grant Morrison’s vision and it’s brutal, vicious and no holds barred! Written by Grant Morrison (Action Comics The New 52) and illustrated to give your eyes a feast by Frank Quitely (New X-Men, We3) and Philip Tan (Final Crisis: Revelations). Originally published as Batman & Robin #1-#6. From DC Comics.
