The DC Essential Edition highlights the best standalone series the medium has to offer, featuring comics' greatest characters. For new readers and longtime fans, BATMAN AND ROBIN: BAD BLOOD is a definitive entry point to the DC Universe's vast library. Start with the Essentials.
Batman and Robin—the Dynamic Duo. The Dark Knight and the Boy Wonder. And now father and son.
Unlike other Robins, Damian Wayne was trained his entire life as an assassin, and that training fostered brutal methods. As Damian's violent tendencies threaten to end Batman and Robin's partnership, a mysterious killer from Batman's past comes to Gotham, looking to end Batman's life.
He calls himself NoBody. He travels the globe in shadow, picking off those he considers guilty and making them disappear without a trace. Now NoBody has targeted Damian for destruction, but first he'll take from him the one thing that matters most. When NoBody offers Damian the chance to give into his nature, will the newest Robin betray his father to become the assassin he was born to be?
From PETER J. TOMASI, PATRICK GLEASON and MICK GRAY comes an unlikely tale of father and son bonding, collecting BATMAN AND ROBIN #1-8 along with behind the scenes bonus material.
