Batman & Robin

I started reading Grant Morrison's "Batman & Robin" because it's gotten such rave reviews, but... I find that jumping into the story just reminds me of why I quit reading Batman in the first place. It's not that it's bad; rather, it's that the backstory is so complex and contrived that I hate reading it because I'm constantly thinking, "I didn't read that story arc, so I'm not really sure what they're getting at." It's jokey, it's action-packed, but it's just... not the Batman stories I like. And I like Dick Grayson as Batman.

I also kind of hate the angst of Dick trying to psych himself up to believe he's a good Batman. It's not the first time you've done this, Dick; get over it.
