Batman & Robin Eternal #11 Review

Body: 

I have to admit, this is the best comic cover I've seen in a while. It's the perfect pyschedelic for this issue.

 

No time to unwind, there's a trip into the mind, and once you're there you'll find, Harp and Cass are entwined, but for now, nevermind, the past is so unkind, and before the truth's defined, Bluebird's trip is resigned and Dick's next, as he's inclined. Scrambled brains and dozens slain in the eleventh entry in DC's current weekly Batman chronicle. The new continuity's Cassandra origin is told (and it seems mostly the same, but taken up a few levels in horror), we get some not-so-subtle clues that she ties into Harper's backstory, and Dick is desperate to know what Batman did all those years ago (as am I). So let's take this mind trip, because it's a huge step up from that last stinking issue.

 

Batman & Robin Eternal #5 Review

Body: 

"I'll teach you not to make me relevant!"

 

Cass takes a limb, Dick angers Tim, and the artwork looks grim in this fifth issue of DC's weekly Grayson adventure, Batman & Robin: Eternal. We see where Cassandra made her bones, get more of Batman and Robin's pursuit of Scarecrow, Harper makes a quick and clever move, and Tim Drake has a much-needed personality infusion which I hope lasts. Poppy pops up again, Tim's parents' house is... something else, and for Bat's sake, why are there so many different pencilers in this issue?! There's a cop-out, but I won't drop out, when we get a bit more of my favorite Robin's personal life.

 

Batman & Robin Eternal #2 Review

Body: 

In hindsight, Batman decided the LSD experiments were premature.

 

Cassandra attacks, The Orphan gets smacked, and Dick flashes back in this second issue of Batman's weekly Batman event book. Our Agent 37, fresh off an encounter with deadly children, a betrayal by a cannibal (can't trust anyone these days), and a possibly life-changing revelation, is scrambling to protect all the people on the list of names on the thumb drive he was given. He doesn't arrive in time to help Harper from receive a beating, but fortunately our mysterious ninja Cassie is a match for the new threat. But what does all this have to do with Jonathan Crane, Scarecrow, and can Tim send me some of those videos of the Row residence? (Sure, you're no Peeping Tom...)

Batman& Robin Eternal #1 Review

Body: 

Not pictured: The actual current Robin

 

It's time to review Eternal 2, where Cassie debuts, does some badass kung-fu, and when things come unglued, shocking things ensue! It's DC's new weekly Batman saga, hot on the heels of Jim Gordon becoming Batman and Dick Grayson's spy career's growing complications. With Bruce Wayne out of action, Gotham's streets are defended by a group of costumed teens and young adults that the new Caped Crusader has no patience for, and the first Robin uncovers a startling secret his mentor had kept for him for years.
