Subj: My 3 bat book reviews

I have been collecting Batman and Robin, Batman, and Red Robin.
first off, I was delighted to read 2 bat books with Fabian Nicieza name attached to it.
Batman 713- Written by Fabian. This was a wrap up issue, narrated by Damien. VERY cool way to wrap it up, it gave us insight into the relationship he had with Dick, that made this more than just a recap. The cover is a bit deceiving in that the 4 characters aren't together, but it just felt nice to have this wrap up prior to the big reboot.I liked the focus given to Dick as a personable batman/character. Fabian has a good grasp of the Batverse, they really need to snag him for one of these titles!!!
Batman and Robin 26
Didn't like the art, the story was so so, this i a title I would have dropped months ago, the reboot has made me just lazy to make the change until the reboot. That said the reboot B and R looks more promising than where this title has been. It has been very little character development, focused on weirder type characters and stories, that lack enough hook to make the reader care.
Red Robin 26
SO sad this book is ended. What a GREAT ending, what a wonderful wrap up that sets things up well for the new DCU. Fabian has been focused on Tim and his desire to control things, shaping many good story arcs out of it, this is the cherry on the sundae. we see how Tim controls the murderer of his dad, Cpt Boomerang , allowing him, if he would make 1 right choice would change his fate(death), but boomerang doesn't and is set to be killed, in such a way that Tim could live guilt free...True to character he doesn't allow it to happen, but the interaction he has with Bruce at the end of the book, is just AWESOME. Best page of writing I have read in YEARS!
