I Love It--Batman And Robin Volume 3: Batman and Robin Must Die!
This collects issues #13-16 of Batman and Robin along with Batman: The Return and is probably some of the best Batman stuff Grant Morrison has done. There is a reason that I said Batman and Robin #13 was my favorite individual issue of a comic in 2010, and that reason is that this arc rocks.
Grant Morrison meant for issues of this comic to line-up with "The Return of Bruce Wayne" which I reviewed a bit earlier, but due to various delays in comics that didn't happen. It was hoped they would line up because certain events in each comic sync together, such as the Bruce Wayne Batman returning in Batman and Robin #16. Also, in issue #16 Frazier Irving doesn't do all the art for the issue making for a few jarring shifts in style. I say these complaints first because they are all of the ones I have. After that I just love Batman and Robin #13-16. An addiction that spreads via a cold, Professor Pyg being his crazy self, more of the faux-Thomas Wayne AKA Doctor Hurt fellow, and Frazier Irving doing some of the best art I've seen him ever do. Yeah, this is the kind of stuff that reminds me why I read comics.
5 out of 5 stars.
