This book has won my praise right off the back. I'm a bit biased since I grew up with Tim and love him as robin. I was really upset with how New 52 changed his origins around. That aside, the art was fantastic and Tynion's writing style is perfect for comics. He is able to craft a fantastic narrative in such a short amount of space. He often uses over the top cliffhangers but it pays off well the next issue. overall I give this a 9/10 It's a flashback to my child hood and you can see the love Tynion put into the book.
