Join us on our quest for ALL THE COMICS!
DC’s “WTF Month” continues with Peter Tomasi and Pat Gleason’s Batman and Robin #19. As I’m sure you’ve already heard through the comic gossip, or press releases from DC, Batman may have found his new Robin in Carrie Kelley. Sorry, I’m not going to spoil the issue for you – I’ll let you dive into DC’s “WTF Month” with full expectations.
Instead I can tell you what you’ll find inside this issue. You’ll find a Batman at the end of his wits, Carrie Kelley getting suspicious, Red Robin in the line of fire, and Frankenstein being awesome. Oh, and a “WTF” moment. This issue is a fun read. The death of Robin has given DC’s writers an opportunity to showcase Batman in a state that he is rarely seen in, desperation. Peter Tomsai comes through brilliantly. Batman and Frankenstein have a fantastic back and forth while Pat Gleason expertly provides context to Tomsai’s dialogue.
A great team on a book makes for a great read. Batman and Robin #19 is worth picking up not only for the hoopla, but as a great example of a Batman we rarely get to see.
