Well.. If you have not got to read this you should. I will not through and spoilers... but this was a great piece that really dealt with a amazing story between Father and Son.

Damian is such a good character, i loved this!

the bit where he's being so serious jumping into the batmobile reading to charge into the night...and he has to pause mid dramatic dialogue to adjust the seat. i died. So good.

and does anyone else love Titus?

Was nice. We really need a solo damian book of older Damian as Batman 666.

Yes, it was pretty funny, seemed an episode of the animated series.

and does anyone else love Titus?

Eheheh awesome, but remember that Morrison is disappointed for this, because he wanted a cat not a dog for Damian :D

I haven't read any of the new comics (waiting for trades), but I caved in and bought this one, and I don't regret it for a second. It's just pure awesome sauce. So many good highlights that it's difficult to mention just one, but the moment where Damian realizes that size does matter in the Batmobile is just too funny for words.

Can anyone address where this fits in, continuity-wise? I hear it's good and makes Damian more likeable...but I don't want to like him just to see something happen to him in Batman 17.

Ok ok. Ill grab it a little bit later. Ill be sure to update you guys late with what I thought of the issue.

Edit- Ok, I loved it! Damien was hilarious, and very thoughtful. Great issue and totally worth it! Loved the character Development. I wonder where it takes place chronologically though?

It was cute I love how Tomassi is fleshing out Damian's character and making him a lot more likeable. This series has been great for showing us another side of Damian.

This series is the bomb! I nearly like it as much as Snyder's.

Initially I was never a fan of Batman having a biological son, and Grant Morrison never changed my mind on that. To me, it was like the Superman-Lois wedding. Something that you know will be retconned out of existence.

Regardless of what happens to Damian, Tomasi changed my mind about him - and I absolutely love this character. Very interested to see what the future has in store for him. I like that he's more standoffish to the outside DC universe - but intensly loyal to those in his inner circle.

It was incredibly good, I love Damian.

My favorite part is when Bruce says TT.

I will say one thing...I do feel guilty liking Damian - knowing, full well that the emergence of his character is majorly responsible for the clusterf*** that has hit Tim Drake in the New 52.

Some of the best stories in the 90's and early 00's were Tim Drake Robin stories.

Yeah because the future Damian that Morrison wrote had a cat named Alfred. That's why Morrison showed Alfred (Pennyworth) going to the pound and picking up said cat in one of the latest issues of Batman Incorporated. Damian says he'll call him Alfred, and the rest is history (one would assume this is the same cat that future Damian has, and he's just been using Lazarus Pits to bring him back whenever little Alfred's nine lives are up.)

Now the official Bat-Menagerie is as follows:

Bat-Cow (the cow, duh)

Titus (the Great Dane)

Alfred (the cat)
