Batman & Robin 26 Review

Batman And Robin 26 cover


This issue takes place in Paris France, where villains have been freed from Le Jardin Noir (their version of Arkham) and has turned Paris upside down. No really, the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, everything is all topsy-turvy, and nothing makes sense. Batman, Robin, and Nightrunner are attacked by the entire city of Paris, and Robin gets shattered by the villain. Batman figures out what is happening, and they finally get to the real mastermind, which turns out to be the French version of The Joker. Apparently, his father made him the way he is today, and this whole plan was to get revenge. The final pages are hauntingly creepy, and very disturbing. All in all, a fantastic one and done (I assume) issue.

The only other thing I think I have read by David Hine is Spider-man Noir, and I really enjoyed that. However, this is on a whole other level. He creates five new villains for this issue, and they will probably never be used again, but they feel very fleshed out. The Son Of Man (or French Joker....Froker?) is almost as scary as The Joker. On one hand, he isn’t just causing chaos for chaos’s sake, but his highly focused reason for the chaos, makes it terrifying. I will be checking out David Hine’s book from now on.

Greg Tocchini has had four issues out in the last two does that happen? He drew FF 6 and 7, as well as the Batman and Robin 25. The art in B&R 25 is a lot different than in 26, but this issue was amazing. the Eiffel Tower and The Louvre floating through the air, due to the delusion. Batman being cut in half, and seeing a cross section of his anatomy, and Robin being shattered looks fantastic. Froker's mouth looks really disturbing, also.

All in all, this issue was fantastic. I love these one-and-done issues, and can’t wait for what’s coming next.

4.5 out of 5
