Batman and Robin #10

Writer: Peter J. Tomasi
Artist: Patrick Gleason

A much expected reunion takes place in the first chapter of "Terminus." Damian summons all the previous Robins to make a childish but haunting promise, and one to be taken seriously. As menacing as Robin comes off, it is clear he is acting out of a sense of embarrassment for his recent actions; a complex set of emotions superbly conveyed by Tomasi. Nightwing's derisive attitude towards Damian and Tim's scuffle, only to have him display the same immature behavior when Red Hood shows up is priceless; boys will always be boys. While this happens, another group comes together; this one, composed of villains with a particular connection to Batman; individuals who may be considered collateral damage of the criminal underworld prepare to make the cape crusader's life miserable, and it is not hard to understand where they are coming from. Nice art, good writing, great start for this new arc.
