A much expected
reunion takes place in the first chapter of "Terminus." Damian
summons all the previous Robins to make a childish but haunting
promise, and one to be taken seriously. As menacing as Robin comes
off, it is clear he is acting out of a sense of embarrassment for
his recent actions; a complex set of emotions superbly conveyed by
Tomasi. Nightwing's derisive attitude towards Damian and Tim's
scuffle, only to have him display the same immature behavior when
Red Hood shows up is priceless; boys will always be boys.
While this happens,
another group comes together; this one, composed of villains with a
particular connection to Batman; individuals who may be considered
collateral damage of the criminal underworld prepare to make the
cape crusader's life miserable, and it is not hard to understand
where they are coming from. Nice art, good writing, great start for
this new arc.
