Hello again Son of Batman fans and welcome to another session of Renegade Robins Damian Wayne Book Club. This week we will be tackling a couple of stories that happened just before Bruce’s “death” in Final Crisis and the resulting battle for the legacy of Batman that occurs after. Damian, while not Robin yet, still has a role to play here even if these stories don’t really focus on him. Let’s get started then shall we
Son of Batman News:
Currently on DCU:
- Adventures of the Super Sons #8 -3/10
- Teen Titans #28 -3/24
Interesting tibits for this week’s issues:
- Just for reference here’s where the Batman of Zur-En-Arrh first appeared way back in Batman #113. Unfortunately its not been digitized as yet. To bad I’d really like to read it.
- Also for you Jason Todd fans Jason does make an appearence in Battle for the Cowl. Not one of his better moments for certain but still you can’t fault a guy who wants to be Batman, can you?
Other Robin News:
- The 80th Anniversary of Robin Event is still ongoing so please feel free to check out the different events some of the clubs are hosting by clicking on the above link.
What to read (12 issues): I know it’s a lot of issues this time but for the sake of continuity I thought it better to read through the whole of this not just the issues Damian was in.
In these issues Damian seems intent on defending his father and his legacy. What do you think his motivations behind this are?
Who was your favorite villain in RIP?
How do you feel about Alfred giving Damian a Robin suit so he could start “earning his keep”?
How did you like Damian’s interactions with Squire?
Anyone out there wish they could read the first appearence of the Batman of Zur-En-Arrh
And that’s all for this week my friends.
Be sure to check out our companion club Renegade Robins: Jason Todd next week as Jason Todd becomes a Legend.
And stay tuned because in two weeks on Renegade Robins: Damian Wayne: Batman and Robin are Reborn and a new era of the Dynamic Duo beguns!
