Written by Jim Starlin; Art by Jim Aparo and Mike DeCarlo Batman readers were allowed to vote on the outcome of the story and they decided that Robin should die! As the second person to assume the role of Batman's sidekick, Jason Todd had a completely different personality than the original Robin. Rash and prone to ignore Batman's instructions, Jason was always quick to act without regard to consequences. In this fatal instance, Robin ignores his mentor's warnings when he attempts to take on the Joker by himself and pays the ultimate price. Driven by anger with Superman by his side, Batman seeks his vengeance as he looks to end the Joker's threat forever.

The colouring is well done, but th...

4.0 Batman: A Death in the Family
Finally got to see The Joker beat Robin to death with a crowbar in the comics. I can see why this graphic novel was controversial, as the subject material was a little on the serious side. Good story, but for me not the easiest or most entertaining to read. Good Batman anyways.

I watched Batman: Under the Red Hood recently thanks to Netflix’s streaming option. I enjoyed it for so many reasons, but that’s another post. After watching the movie, I wanted to read the source material that led up to the events in the movie. Admittedly, I’m more of a Marvel girl than a DC girl, ...
