In the event you're one of the three or so people still unaware of what happened in BATMAN, INC... there's SPOILERS here!
The third 'Comic Book Question of the Week' was picked to let us reflect on the good times in Damian's life. I thought it was important for us to focus on the positive memories after writer Grant Morrison hit us with Robin's vicious death in BATMAN, INCOPORATED #8.
167 Viners voted and one Damian Wayne moment zoomed ahead of the competition. Future Damian, Bat-cow and murdering Nobody got a lot of love, but the events in writer Peter J. Tomasi's BATMAN AND ROBIN ANNUAL #1 obliterated the competition.
It's easy to understand why this one won (I voted for it, too). Tomasi's annual issue was nothing less than brilliant. Amazingly heartfelt, hilarious and fun, this annual is one of the most powerful reading experiences I've had in quite some time. If you already loved Damian, it'll melt your heart. If you didn't, odds are it turned you into a fan. It had his usual snarky attitude, but it also meshed in a beyond touching tale. It truly was a beautiful reading experience and I can't recommend it enough.
Did you vote for that one, and if so, what's your favorite scene in the issue? If not, what did you vote for? Feel free to share scans of your favorite Damian moments below, too! Rest in peace, little dude.
