"I know thousands of ways to kill you. Thousands, Grayson."

*Short review* As a Halloween treat this comic is full of action, suspense and many comedic moments, it is a great read and I don't regret the $3 cover price.  I would pick it up. 
 
*Extended review* In a series that is suppose to be Superman and Batman, Superman and Batman are not always the focal points.  In this issue we get a special Halloween treat with Supergirl and "Little" Wayne... I mean Damian Wayne take to Metropolis to solve a crime.  Weird pairing, but Damian just makes a great counter character.  This new Robin is nothing like any of the past Robins, being the ninja assassin he is he is likely the most dangerous of all the Bat family.
 
This comic works on the "Little" Wayne dynamic which was established in Grant Morrison Batman and Robin series, what I mean by this is the older more mature character has to babysit the most dangerous teenage superhero in all of comics. Little Wayne doesn't respect authority and it is interesting seeing him interact with an older, more mature and beautiful role-model in Supergirl.  Supergirl is forced to work with Damian because Dick Grayson, Tim Drake and Superman are all off doing something else.  This becomes a chance for Damian to prove his value to his family name and solidify he is fit to one day take the Batman mantle. If you are a fan of Damian "Little" Wayne 'Robin', then you should seriously look into this book, Supergirl fans can walk away with enjoyment as well, but it all about "Little" Wayne.
 
Happy Halloween

@Liberty:  I like the cover, not love it.  I think it represents Damian's immaturity. 
thanks for recommending it :D

    The Good: HILARIOUS. An absolute masterpiece of comedy in superhero comics at its finest.  99% of the source of said comedy is the dialogue between Supergirl and Robin (as the cover implies). IT IS GLORIOUS. Robin's hit the point where he can back up his arrogance, and he sprays it out in more of a clever way rather than pure hatred as he did when he first appeared.The art was really cool. I have to keep my eyes peeled for this artist in the future, it was cartoony without getting too cartoon. I...
