Hello and welcome to another session of the Damian Wayne Book Club here at Renegade Robins. Last time we were following along as a new Dynamic Duo hit the streets of Gotham and we will be returning to both of those titles in due time. Right now I want to turn your attention to some other stories: The first set are the tie-in issues to the Blackest Night event. The second features an encounter between Damian and the new Batgirl: Stephanie Brown. And lastly, just for an additional bit of lightheartedness, a few issues of Li"l Gotham to round things out. (Yeah Li’l Gotham was published later but so what. It’s a fun book.)
Let’s get going!
Son of Batman News
New to DCU
You tell 'em Steph!
What to read (8 issues)
These Blackest Night tie-ins are Damian’s second appearance in an event and his first as Robin in the official sense. How would you compare his appearance here with his appearance in The Resurrection of Ra’s al Ghul that we read a few weeks back?
Being that this story was another instance of someone other than Morrison handling Damian what did you think of Tomasi’s characterization in these Blackest Night tie-in issues? Was it better or worse than previous writers’ attempts at writing him?
In the Batgirl issues what did you think of Damian’s interactions with Stephanie and her’s with him?
What was your favorite panel in the Batgirl issues?
What are your thoughts on Damian in Batman: Lil Gotham?
For those who have read Blackest Night how do the above issues compare to other tie-ins?
And that’s all he wrote this week. Please be sure to follow the Renegade Robins link to join.
Next week see what adventures Jason Todd has as the Jason Todd Book Club takes a look at Ten Nights of the Beast.
And in two weeks Damian makes a new friend. Don’t believe me than tune in and see just how it happens.
