Batman and Robin #14 - Devoured Review

Batman and Robin #14 Review


Cover - 3/5

- Would I pick-up the comic based on the cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the cover portray what happens in the issue?

Art - 4/5

- Do I personally like this artist's style? Does the artist stay true to the characters appearance?

Color/Ink - 5/5

- Does the work blend well with the artist? Is the coloring/inking enjoyable and easy to distinguish what's happening?

Layout - 3/5

- Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?

Story - 3/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story arc? How well did the issue further develop the characters?


Verdict - 3.4

- What I think: I really don't know what to think about the cover. I had almost no idea what it was or what it was supposed to be. I assume it's a pair of jokes teeth, which we do see at one point in the issue. The art suffers from DC using multiple artists in the same issue. I really disliked the start of the issue, but luckily the back-end art made up for that. I also had some issue with the layout. It seemed at times the flow, especially on one or two double pages were hard to follow, they didn't seem the normal left to right top to bottom. Also the overuse of "Eat to Live" became highly annoying and I found myself glancing over several pages rather then reading them. The story itself tried to tie up the loose ends from Batman and Robin #13 - Eclipsed but still falls flat. They somehow tie it into the Joker but not really. In the end we see Batman talking to Damian Wayne again about running off, and how the same actions caused Jason Todd's death. In the end his mother's pearl makes him forgive Damian. While I didn't hate the issue, it really fell flat and IMO didn't leave a good tie-in to the next issue's Death of the Family crossover.
