The Rundown: A family reunion yields surprising results and Robin strikes out on his own.

The past is revisited as Talia is questioned by Director Chase. Meanwhile, Robin and the Bat Family battle the Red Triangle gang. Afterwards, Batman and Robin learn of a criminal’s escape and soon search for answers. Later, the duo meets with Talia, and Robin makes a difficult decision. Then Talia goes her own way as an unexpected secret is revealed. Finally, Robin returns to Lazarus Island where he is met by someone surprising.

The Story: Family dynamics encompass this surprisingly heartfelt chapter. Damian’s growth over the past 15 chapters has been palpable. Watching him taking on the role of peacemaker between his parents was both difficult and relatable. I really appreciate how his experiences are now informing his decisions. I am excited for his new arc involving Lazarus Island and what lessons Damian’s will take from the journey.

The Art: This action filled issues features interesting and well-conceived battle scenes. I also found the realistic, modern design and detailed drawings to be emotionally connective and transportive.
