Batman and Robin #1

What can I say? This was a pretty good start to what I hope will be a good arc. I'm curious to see what is to follow, what with these new villains. Pyg intrigues me. I must say that Morrison did a pretty good job in this issue. I love how Damian is the mechanic for the Batmobile. I think Quitely did a wonderful job, and I'm loving the way he draws the new Batmobile. The parascapes too. That was a wonderful page. Anyways, I'm definitely interested in what is to come. (And I LOVE J.G. Jones's variant)

Story- 9
Art- 9
Overall- 9

You miss what will probably be a fun comic?

I read the past 6 months worth of Spidey comics over the weekend and the current arc is the best of that bunch not including the Marcos Martin issues.

But I don't want to just jump into the middle of this arc and have no clue what's going on.

Short of a new #1 with all original characters, you're always picking up the story in the middle in some way shape or form when reading comics. Best I can do is point you to the "How This Works" portion of the OP and then you can make your choice on participating any given week from there.
