Welcome Renegade Robin followers to the first week of the Damian Wayne Book Club. I’m JasonTodd428 and I will be your host for this episode of RR. I look forward to reading, watching and discussing the character and stories of the Son of the Bat with all of you. So let’s get started shall we.
YES DAMIAN WE KNOW.
Damian Wayne (or at least his precursor) was first introduced in the out of continuity story “Batman: Son of the Demon”. Grant Morrison used this story as a basis for creating Damian and this first week we will be reading “Batman and Son” which expands on “Son of the Demon” as well as some lead up stories to the selections for two weeks from now.
AND NOW FOR SOME NEWS INVOLVING OUR FAVORITE DEMON BRAT (I MEAN THAT FONDLY OF COURSE)
NEWS OF THE DEMON: (WHERE TO FIND DAMIAN THIS MONTH)
CURRENTLY APPEARING IN THE FOLLOWING TITLES :
· TEEN TITANS #39
The “Djinn War” has begun! Adam Glass is joined by new co-writer Robbie Thompson (Spider-Man/Deadpool, Spidey, Meet the Skrulls) and new artist Eduardo Pansica (Supergirl) for the Teen Titans’ next thrilling adventure! Trapped in her ring with no escape, Djinn finds herself on the inside looking out as the Teen Titans go hunting for Djinn’s older brother Elias, the only one capable of saving her. But Elias’s dark side is the stuff of legends…and the Teen Titans know he can’t be trusted. With Deathstroke, Lobo, and the Other in their rearview mirror…this team is about to go on their most dangerous mission yet
· LEGION OF SUPERHEROES # 3
You knew there was no way Jon Kent was going to leave his best friend behind! Welcome to the future, Damian Wayne! (This is such a terrible idea!) Also, meet the new Legionnaires as they head to a secret undercover mission on the first man-made planet: Planet Gotham. Every page of this new DC epic plants seeds and ideas that will blast out across the DC Universe for months to come! All this, and Monster Boy is on the loose!
CURRENTLY ON DCU:
THIS WEEK’S READINGS (8 ISSUES)
What did you think of Damian in these issues and did anything about these issues surprise you?
For those who haven’t read these issues before were you as surprised as Bruce was to find out he’d had a son? (For those that have already read these issues what was your reaction to this news back at the time you first read it.?)
What did you think of the History of Ra’s al Ghul that was presented in Batman Annual #26?
The first story in the Robin Annual is one in which Robin (Tim Drake) works with Bullock. How would you say this story compares to the one we read last week featuring Bullock and Robin (Jason Todd)?
The second story features Damian in a ghost story. It’s billed as a “sneak peek” into the Resurrection of Ra’s al Ghul according to the cover but was it really or was Batman Annual #26 more of one?
What did you think of Batman #666?
That’s all I have for you today Damian fans.
THE REST OF THE MONTH:
TUNE INTO RENEGADE ROBINS NEXT WEEK FOR THE CONTINUING ADVENTURES OF ONE JASON TODD IN "FAREWELL, DEAR MOENCH"
AND IN TWO WEEKS DAMIAN RETURNS TO FACE A MAD SCHEME CONNECTED WITH HIS GRANDFATHER IN THE CROSSOVER “THE RESURRECTION OF RA’S AL GHUL"
