Comics Rundown - Batman Inc #8 Review

Posted by Unknown Wednesday, March 6, 2013
From the mind of Michael Burhan, to all who read this, comes a comics review column like no other. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Fanboys Anonymous debut of Comics Rundown!.

This edition is a rather disturbing one as I reach into the depths of the DC's New 52 to review a bat book like none other: Batman Inc #8.

The plot of this issue continues the ongoing fight between Talia al Ghul and Bruce Wayne as the Bat family attempt to put a stop to her plot to destroy Gotham. She is aided by the clones of her son Damian, someone she sees as a failed experiment.

Now, for those of you who haven't been hiding under a rock, you would know that in this issue Robin meets his untimely demise at the hands of his duplicate and a few trained marksmen. What makes this issue a worthwhile read is that it tends to bring closure to Damian's story by reuniting him with Nightwing.

The conversation is a somber one having Robin call Grayson his "favorite partner" as a way to show that these two share a brotherly bond that will divide the bat family upon Damian's death. This small scene is writer Grant Morrison's way of showing the impact that this young and untamed youth has had and thus makes this loss and even greater one.

This is where this comic shines. It brings closure to Damian's story but also tears the Bat Family apart, thus bringing Batman further into the darkness.
