We are back into the hopeful, apocalyptic world of Tala and Hototo. 

Year 2090. Six years have passed since Salvation Day, when Palladions, with their majestic powers, emerged as the protectors of humanity, saving the five remaining Megalopolis and securing the future of the human species. 

But nothing stays and the horizon always brings a new storm. 

These are dark times. Death, famine and desperation lurk around the streets of Megalopolis 9. The shield has lost thirty percent of its reach. The New Nature has learned to create cuts in the energy channels that power the Beacon and the Palladions. A never ending horde of beasts siege the remains of the city, increasing the desperation among the population. 

The responsibility of keeping the city afloat lies on the shoulders of Generals Nesbo and Terrassa, who have to resort to risky survival measures. The reconnection missions are the only thing that is keeping the population secure…but nothing seems enough. 

Powerlessness corners the Palladions, who fear not being able to protect the city. 

Everything is black, except for the white snow that covers with silence the dying, black present.

Fear opens its way through Megalopolis 9 like a great crack of faith that separate more and more the population from the Palladions. 

Snow covers the city with a heavy white mantle, invoking oblivion and nothingness.

Robin & Batman #1

Written by: Jeff Lemire

The legendary story of Batman and Robin has reached nearly mythic proportions: the crime-fighting Dynamic Duo, always one step ahead of the criminals they pursue and never meeting a case too big. This isn’t that story. This is the story of a young Dick Grayson, newly orphaned, struggling to find his way in a strange, difficult, dark new world…This is the story of Robin and Batman.

The bestselling creative team behind the Eisner-winning Descender, Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen, reunite in Gotham City to tell the story of a remarkable young man learning to navigate an incredible new world!

Review: Robin and Batman #1

Robin and Batman #1

Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen are a duo who have shown they can create magic. Descender was a series that was a treat in every way. This duo now takes on another dynamic duo in the form of Batman and Robin. But, the focus isn’t on Batman, it’s instead Robin in his early years of training. Robin and Batman #1 focuses on a young Dick Grayson, newly orphaned, struggling to find his way in a strange, difficult, dark new world and his attempt to navigate it all. It’s a hell of a debut that is gushing with high quality in both its storytelling and the art.

Lemire crafts an interesting take on the young team putting the perspective on Dick Grayson. This is a young student in multiple ways, still dealing with the death of his parents and wanting to fight crime like his mentor. It’s also a Dick Grayson that’s young, a bit brash, and thinks he knows far more than he does. In other words, he’s an average kid. Lemire nails down a “comic” style of a kid who daydreams about fighting crime while in school and sneaks out at night to do so when he’s told not to. This Grayson is skilled, very skilled, and a bit of a dreamer in a way, imagining his role in Batman’s war on crime.

What stands out is the depiction between Batman and Dick. You get a sense of frustration from Batman in that he doesn’t quite know what to do with his protégé. Batman didn’t exactly have a normal childhood and that sense of confusion as to what he should do is present. There’s something very relatable about it all making the dynamic aspect not so much their ability to fight crime together but instead the burgeoning father/son relationship between the two.

Dustin Nguyen’s art continues to amaze. With lettering by Steve Wands, the comic is a visual treat. Nguyen’s style is unique taking an almost water color look to the action. The coloring is beautiful with each page a work of art. Every panel you want to linger on, not just for the characters within but how the color is used. What is and is not present in the panel. There’s also a youthful aspect to Dick that works so well. He looks and feels like a kid. The poses are slightly different than Batman and Alfred. He doesn’t just look like a miniaturized adult. Batman has a weariness about him, not from years of fighting crime but instead dealing with this young kid. The art alone is a reason to get this comic.

Robin and Batman #1 is amazing in every sense. The story is great. The art is beautiful. The combo is unreal. It’s a hell of a debut from two creators who have already set a high bar. One issue in and I’m already demanding more from this team.
