This was a really strong issue, and a great send-off to the pairing of Dick and Damian. Most of the time I have problems with single-issue stories, I feel modern day writers and modern storytelling techniques don’t work for them, but Hine managed to pack a lot in here, there were some great creepy new villains, some fun interactions between Batman, Robin and Nightrunner (who is not controversial at all, how the hell did people get so upset, he’s just some dude) and some really trippy stuff, very well drawn by Greg Tocchini. I didn’t think Tocchini was a good fit for Batman after the Red Hood story, but this issue was more up his street. This was the best issue of this title since Morrison left, and it’s a shame Hine doesn’t have any Bat-work lined up post-relaunch. It’s also a shame that Tomasi and Gleason only managed to do 3 issues of this title, so I have no idea if they’re any good or not, and so won’t be picking up the new #1. Goodbye Batman And Robin, it’s been fun.

Another fine writer unemployed because of this ridiculous reboot. But the title has been a farce since Morrison left, so I'm happy to ignore the book forever now

I'm surprised Tocchini is getting work regularly. I saw that he was on this arc AND a few issues of FF. After his work on the Ion maxi-series, I was really turned off by his stuff. Too blurry, no sense of anatomy, horrible faces. Has his style improved? I'm curious.

I thought his art worked for this. I liked his stuff since Last Days of American Crime.

I dunno if I'd say he unemployed. He has some Indy stuff coming out.

Word. I've been meaning to check that out for Remender's story. Didn't realize Tocchini was on art there. I guess whenever I get a hold of that book, I can re-assess Tocchini.

I'd pretty much check out anything that has Remender's name on it, to be honest.

Yeah. I love Fear Agent, but don't like the way it's collected. I Tweeted at Rememnder a few months back about whether or not they were going to do an omnibus, and he said it was highly likely. Can't wait to get my hands on that book!
