Batman Is Not A Great Dad In ‘Robin: Son Of Batman’ #9 (Or Ever, Really) [Preview]

Robin: Son of Batman #9, DC Comics


Imagine, for a moment, that you are the son of Batman. This shouldn’t be difficult, because if you’re anything like me, you’re already doing this constantly already. You most likely have what could charitably be described as a strained relationship, because he has always put his one-man war against crime first, with family coming in at a distant second, but you’ve been able to come to terms with that, and maybe you’ve actually made some progress in your relationship.

And then you see that dude build a gigantic friggin’ playground and handing out hugs for everybody else‘s kids, and all the sudden you’re mad about it all over again.

That, friends, is exactly what’s happening in the pages of Robin: Son of Batman #9, written and illustrated by Patrick Gleason, and if you can’t wait to see the emotional toll that can result from a slide made out of a robot dinosaur, check out the exclusive preview below!

As sad as it is to see Damian so alone, to the point of lurking over his father’s bed writing teen poetry, I do hope that Robot Dinosaur Memorial Playground remains a Gotham City Landmark for the next few decades.

Here’s the official solicitation:
