At first, I hated the idea of Damian becoming Robin, but he's winning me over now. The dynamics between Batman and Damian are interesting; they have such different styles and attitudes. It's clear that Damian, although he may hate Talia, has learned a lot from her and has picked up on a lot of her attitudes. Other pluses for this issue: an exciting new villain, and good illustrations.
Lastly, isn't it convenient how all the foreign "Batmen" are dying except for Batwing?
