    But Why Tho?

    Batman and Robin #3 is an energetic edition of the series. The issue features exhilarating action from the beginning and never wants to let the book get far without the fights following it. The new villain is filled with drama and darkness and demands curiosity, a breath of fresh air among a character that often resorts to the old rogue’s gallery. Instead, someone is introduced with ties to various other aspects of Batman and Robin’s history whilst containing originality as well. The comic is tremendously fun and enthusiastic, with a stunning art style that makes it fluid and formidable.

    Nerd Initiative

    The creative team puts the “Dynamite” in the Dynamic duo with a action-driven chapter. Williamson crafts key character moments in-between Di Meo’s explosive action images to give readers an issue they simply won’t want to end.

    The ending doesn’t seem to be what it appears to be, just based on where characters are supposed to be, but it’s a great visual. I think this entire series takes place over only about two days so far, so that’s an intriguing story structure that adds a sense of intimacy to the whole event.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: Williamson continues to craft an engaging mystery in this series. The story has great layers of character development and interaction especially between Bruce and Damian. The action is thrilling throughout and I love the suspenseful tone of the issue as well. I look forward to seeing what happens next. The Art: Di Meo’s artistic style is perfect for this series and the action is perfectly executed to showcase the awesome action of the story.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Batman and Robin #3 continues where the last issue left off with the heroes trying to secure White Rabbit before Shush and the Terrible Trio kill her. The comic is a race between the dynamic duo and the villains who are all trying to get White Rabbit, and the art and writing do a solid job in making this an action-packed issue. While Shush doesn’t doing anything big, she’s at least not annoying or insufferable like recent new legacy characters tend to be, and is a competent threat to Batman this issue. However, the big reveal of the true mastermind is a big head-scratcher, so the next issue will need to pull double time to assert why they’re the main villain for this story.

    Comic Watch

    Batman and Robin #3 gives readers a good idea of what to expect out of this series as it puts some distance between it and Gotham War. By issue #3 readers will know if this series is for them. Williamson and Di Meo are doing something very fun here and the readers following along are in for a treat.

    The main plot is still being developed, but Williamson and Di Meo are establishing a tone worth getting invested with in this new B&R title.

    Batman & Robin #3 keeps a fun story going, but now that we’re 3 issues in I want the plot to progress and questions to start getting answered.

    Get Your Comic On

    Batman & Robin #3 is another action-packed issue from the Dynamic Duo of Williamson and Di Meo. Though it’s fast pace is beginning to feel relentless there’s so much to grapple with that the book is truly a joy to read.

    Comic Book Revolution

    Outside the stellar artwork by Simone Di Meo, Batman and Robin #3 was a filler issue. All you need to know is that Dark Man-Bat appears. Everything else felt inconsequential, which definitely hurts Shush as a new villain. Hopefully the next issue picks things back up for the series.

    I want to like Batman and Robin #3, but the issue doesn’t quite work from cover to cover. The car chase is great, and the art soars at times, but the narrative feels muddled in its plotting and McGuffin-driven, unfocused nature.

    Weird Science DC Comics

    Batman And Robin #3 benefits from high energy, fast-paced action, and (mostly) great art. That said, there are too many contradictory plot developments, and the point of the story is still a mystery

    This issue really didn’t move the needle for me. There felt like very little substance to the story and some of the perspectives with the art made it hard to make out what was going on. Shush has yet to distinguish herself for me and having bats go after Batman doesn’t fill me with suspense. I want to love a Bruce and Damian team book, but this isn’t it.

    This issue left me with very little to talk about because so little happened in the story. I still want to enjoy this book because it has the potential to be something much better and Williamson is great at writing Damian, but as of right now, it is working out to be a pretty big disappointment. With a different artist and more focus on character and less on action maybe things can turn around.

    Batman and Robin #3 is an interesting case of a lot going on but nothing happening. As we head into the issue, Batman and Robin are trying to save White Rabbit from the Terrible Trio, but beyond that, there really is no story. It's an issue of just action after action with the pages full of characters merely chasing one another around with some occasionally overly quippy dialogue. The only thing to really come from the issue is we learn that Shush isn't working with Hush that somehow weakens the character as a villain here because now what's the point? Everything about this issue just screams busy work and while not unpleasant, it doesn't really serve any purpose and even the art isn't especially strong or organized, either.
