Average at best - Thai
First of let me say that I really like artist Pete Woods intrepratation of Bat-Man, he's gritty and I think he has the balance of Size & Movement down to a fine art.
I also think Anderson Gabrych is a competant writer and I like his more gritter verson of Gotham City but the stories contain in this volume while decent just seem like a prelude to the War Game story arc.
It also doesn't help that the book is very imbalanced as the Robin issues seem totally out of place of have quite a Manga feel to them which I found clashed with the Detective Comic issues.
The main problem that I have with this book however is the notion of Spolier becoming Robin.
There is no way Bat-Man would even consider putting Spolier in the Robin role, and I just couldn't swallow the idea and made my enjoyment of the book falter.
I also found the later half of the book sightly less enjoyable as the first, I was completly lost during the Monster of rot storyline as I had no idea who the bug like creature was and there was no referencing of any kind.
A shame really as some of the earlier story's are enjoyable and there are some new characters introduced which could well add some new idea's the following arc but the only real purpose to this book is the introduction of Spolier as Robin and it's hard to recomomend a book that's based around a very silly idea.

Passable
6.2 out of ten
