New Comics Spotlight: Batman and Robin #37

Batman & Robin #37

Well this is the big one, a knock down, drag out fight between the Batman and DC’s premier Supervillain the immortal Godlike being Darkseid. This issue brings us the penultimate chapter of the Robin Rises storyline that has been running in Batman & Robin for the past five issues. Batman has been fighting to bring back from the dead his son and former Robin Damian Wayne, and his journey reaches its conclusion on Apokolips with a life or death struggle with it’s ruler Darkseid.

Bats vs Darkseid

This isn’t the first time these two titans of comic book lore have fought, though the last time they did Batman found himself on the wrong end of Darkseid’s Omega beams and got vapourised! (eventually coming back from the dead, as all good heroes do), but with the possible resurrection of his son riding on this fight, Batman is more than prepared to make sure that this time he comes out on top.

The Robin Rises story has kept me wanting more every issue so far, I am a big fan of the Damian Wayne Robin and have lamented his untimely death since he was killed by the Heretic (actually an adult clone of Damian) in Batman Inc in 2013. The story comes highly recommended and this issue in particular is a highlight of the series so far.

Batman and Robin #37 is available at your local comic book emporium right now, with the cover and interior art by Mick Gray and Patrick Gleason, written by Peter J. Tomasi with an alternative cover also available drawn by Darwyn Cooke.

  1. …and oh poor Batman, πŸ˜₯ also, Ra’s attempt for Damian’s resurrection… alongside that idiot Talia, but I don’t care for her much. XD She was an ok villain though, despite all this hatred I have for her! :3

    I notice you don’t cover Marvel much, why’s that?

    • I am a dedicated DC fanatic, apart from the Punisher I actually don’t follow Marvel at all. Not that I have a problem with Marvel but I’ll be honest and say I much prefer DC’s stable of Heroes and Villains. Hope you are well and thanks for commenting, Have a most awesome day! πŸ™‚
