I liked Batman and Son through RIP, it relied heavily on paying close attention and was definitely enhanced for long time readers, especially people who have read really obscure stories... a lot of the hate for RIP comes from the fact that people came into it without the prior stories, so it was difficult to navigate. I sold a crap ton of Batman and Son trades (and still do) because that is the least effort you have to make to understand RIP... it is a shame that the Black Case File tpb came out after RIP was in hardcover, that was a stupid move on DC's part, but Morrison may not have been real forthcoming with his references either.
Anyhow, I dig Batman and Robin as well, but it is a very different book.
