About the Author

Grant Morrison has been working with DC Comics for more than twenty years, beginning with his legendary runs on the revolutionary titles ANIMAL MAN and DOOM PATROL. Since then he has written numerous best-sellers — including JLA, BATMAN and New X-Men — as well as the critically acclaimed creator-owned series THE INVISIBLES, SEAGUY, THE FILTH, WE3 and JOE THE BARBARIAN. Morrison has also expanded the borders of the DC Universe in the award-winning pages of SEVEN SOLDIERS, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, FINAL CRISIS and BATMAN, INC., and he is currently reinventing the Man of Steel in the all-new ACTION COMICS.
         In his secret identity, Morrison is a “counterculture” spokesperson, a musician, an award-winning playwright and a chaos magician. He is also the author of the New York Times best-seller Supergods, a groundbreaking psycho-historic mapping of the superhero as a cultural organism. He divides his time between his homes in Los Angeles and Scotland.

Andy Kubert began his career at DC comics illustrating the first highly successful BATMAN VERSUS PREDATOR and ADAM STRANGE series. Andy went on to Marvel Comics’ popular X-Men title, which was consistently a sales juggernaut and remained their top-selling comic during his six-year run. At Marvel he also illustrated such titles as Ghost Rider, Captain America, Ultimate X-Men and the Marvel 1602 miniseries in which he collaborated with New York Times best-selling author Neil Gaiman and which earned a 2005 Quill Award for Best Graphic Novel.
         In addition to having been named to Wizard magazine’s Top Ten Artists, Andy is also an instructor at the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art in Dover, New Jersey.

Format: Paperback
... you have to look at this story in context. This story is part of the Morrison's run and there is always a larger arc with him. This book doesn't end so much as it goes right into Batman: The Resurrection of Ra's Al Ghul of course which goes into Batman: The Black Glove and the reason none of these books never quite end perfectly is it all ends with the finale, Batman: R.I.P. Deluxe HC. On it's own, Batman and son is not a bad story. Damian is a brat of incredible proportions but it's a great illustration of how the others (tim, dick, even bruce) could have been if a nurturing source like alfred wasn't involved. Great read, but make sure you get it with Batman: The Resurrection of Ra's Al Ghul to get more of an ending.

I really liked the idea of Batman finding out he had a son - especially with Ra's Al'Ghul's daughter! It was nice to see Batman exude some paternal instincts and take responsibility for his 'actions' when he is usually a one-man island (aside from Alfred helping him out). It provided a different perspective on Batman that I found thoroughly refreshing.

Morrison writes the son of the Batman just as we would think he'd be written. He's a complete pain in the butt but as the story goes on you begin to take interest in the character that eventually becomes Robin. I'd recommend this to anyone who reads Batman and is a fan of the Robin character.

Format: Hardcover
When reading this one must remember it is just the first chapter in an epic run. Already Morrison is dropping subtle clues and foreshadowing in these pages that will be realized down the line in Batman RIP. I think the whole run is sheer genius, mad genius, but genius. MOrrison is an aquired taste and I hate to sound cliched but you either get it or you don't. He is drawing on 50 years of Batman lore and some obscure stuff at that, like zur en arh..one of batmans outerspace adventures from the 50's or 60's.
I love Damien (Batmans bratty Bastard child) and the art is amazing........anyways Morrisons runs on Batman, New X-men, and JLA are all brilliant I would highly recommend reading the whole arc and hope they release an omnibus...

A must have for Batman fans, "Batman and Son" delivers a unique story that is up there with some of the best Batman angles of the 2000s. Grant Morrison nails it and the art is excellent.
