It was inevitable, the death that shocked the DC universe couldn’t last longer than half a year. All be it this is a mini series, set in whatever timeline it wants to be in, the fact that DC couldn’t help themselves from cashing in on Damian’s death and now rebirth is a tad bit unsettling.
Damian, or whatever clone this one is, blames himself for the supposed death of *Spoiler* Batman. A shoddy crime scene where Batman couldn’t notice a Jokerfish with a blinking bomb strapped to its belly demolishes the Batman, leaving Robin to piece together non existent evidence to find Batman’s killer. Damian, who is nothing like his father Batman, goes on a killing spree reminiscent of one Marvel judge, jury, and executioner, the Punisher. This is not what Batman planned…wait, what Batman planned you say? I hope you can see what I’m throwing down here.
Damian Son of Batman comes from a son most of us are familiar with, one Andy Kubert, a book written and penciled by the man himself. Having said that, with all respect, the book is meh. The art appeared quite often lazy, and the story had just too many holes in it. It was predictable and unimaginative. I could only see die hard Bat-fans finding the book entertaining, under the category of mid 90’s Batman storytelling.
