After some action heavy issues and a lot of tension between our two protagonists we finally come to the conclusion of the "Born to Kill" arc. It is probably the most emotional issue of the whole story arc and the one that showcases the character development Bruce and Damian went through, in the best way possible.
Friends of brutal action and explosions will probably be disappointed, since this issue focuses on the aftermath of Damian's and Bruce's actions and their relationship as father and son, as well as Batman and Robin.
This is by no means a bad thing. The creative team around Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason managed once again to craft a story so beautiful and emotionally powerful, there are no exaggerated displays of violence or sex needed to leave an impact.
BATMAN AND ROBIN #8 is a perfect example for how a good story, round characters and decent character development is everything you need to produce a really brilliant comic book.
