The Truth Behind Damian

I for one have liked this series of Batman and Robin and enjoyed how the other Robins were involved in the last few issues. I also like Gleason's art work and think Tomasi is doing a good job of getting into Damian's psychology as he appears to be the character of main focus in this series.

This story we see how Damian was created in a test tube and how after hearing a story about Alexander the Great wanted to know about his father. Talia made a deal that once Damian best's her in a duel she will tell him about his father. Each year Damian fails to beat his mother until once he's 10 he eventually does. He then learns about his father and the issue ends with the same scene he was introduced in Batman #655.

I really enjoyed this issue and it has been my favourite of the zero issues so far. I liked how we saw the progression of Damian into what he is. I also liked how when he finds the cape and cowl Talia keeps he acts like a child which from his upbringing doesn't appear to have happened often. It was also nice to see that they didn't just forget the way Grant Morrison introduced him 6 years ago.

Final verdict. Brilliant issue in a brilliant series. I would highly recommend it and it is probably the funest Batman series out there.

Rating: 5/5

    Batman had plenty of Zero Issues to himself, so this one is highlighting Robin in its entirety. Longtime readers don't get a lot of new information, but for those new readers jumping into the New 52, this gives a plethora of context to young Damian's backstory.Like Batman Incorporated #2, I'm not completely buying into this callous world domination obsessed Talia. She rebelled against her father, then basically turned into him. Her raising of Damian was just as harsh and unforgiving as her own, ...
