This pack include the following:
The original DCP scans of 1-10
The special edition black and white version of All Star Batman & Robin 1
An uncensored version of All Star Batman & Robin 10. The original printing had some word bubbles censored, but not enough, and it was recalled. This version has the uncensored text bubbles
A "Nearly Wordless" variant of All Star Batman & Robin 10. This is a special pack mainly made up of the sketch pages for the issue, with final pages put in the places where the creator had no sketch pages. Notice an interesting graphical change on page 14, that was changed in the final version.
And i added the digital rips of All Star Batman and Robin 1-10 for completeness sake
Has there been a more derided and divisive comic from DC or Marvel over the past few years than “All-Star Batman and Robin, the Boy Wonder?” From internet memes surrounding ‘the goddamn Batman’ to the scandal over swearing not being properly blacked out to venom and bile piled upon the series for its portrayal of the Dark Knight as just plain mean and cruel... it’s not what anyone expected, but it is very good and exactly what a comic about Batman’s second year in action should be.
The Gotham City in these issues is a heavily flawed one. Crooked cops look to kill Grayson after his parents are murder and let their killer go free; crude men prowl the streets and bars, looking for women to rape; even the best cop in town, Jim Gordon openly talks to his mistress on the phone while his wife lurches into the kitchen to refill her glass with booze. Even its Batman is flawed, more violent than we’re accustomed to. It’s unsettling and over-the-top. It’s understandable why many find it so off-putting: it’s supposed to be.
Complementing this is Jim Lee, whose art has rarely looked better as he seemingly channels Miller in many places. His Batman is the bulky Miller version, the large, muscular, violent monster that glorifies in scaring the crap out of people. His Batgirl is rendered in a way that calls attention to Miller’s own work. But, even then, it’s still thoroughly Lee’s visuals, especially his women. His layouts also don’t have the same elegance or purpose of Miller’s. They do suit the looser, decompressed pacing of Miller’s writing, though.
Not the tighter, more honed work of “Year One,” “All-Star Batman and Robin, the Boy Wonder” is very much in the vein of “The Dark Knight Strikes Again,” a fun, flashy, exciting, quick-paced, and tongue-in-cheek version of Batman, a quasi-sequel to Miller’s work on the character in the ‘80s. Definitely not perfect by any means, but some of the most interesting comics of the past few years.
