The best Batman stories are those where there's a true threat of danger. This is why The Dark Knight Returns, the Nolan trilogy, and What Ever Happened to the Caped Crusader (to name a few) work so well. I think that's why Robin-centered stories tend to be more engaging than most. Robins have a tendency to die and die tragically. They are, arguably, Batman's greatest weakness, which leaves all of his greatest villains clawing after the little sidekicks. To Kill a Bird is steeped with threats and ...more

Decent Robin story, but fair warning, Penguin's only purpose is that he put a bounty on Robin to get him out of the way. He does not play a big part in this. Robin goes through the assassins with relative ease and it only gets really interesting in the last 10-15 pages and then ends. Fun for what it is, I'd be more interested to see the next collection.

Tim has lost everything just before this comic begins. His father is dead, and he can't deal with his feelings toward Bruce after Steph's death. So he has a problem. Not the numerous meta-assassins after him, that's just a comic book. Tim's problem is that he's still a legal minor with no legal guardian. Tim solves this problem in an adorably Tim-like way. It was beautiful.

The only thing I liked about this book was the great artwork by Scott McDaniel in the last chapter (issue).

Best so far of the Willingham run on Robin, but still nothing special.
