As the end of the 75th Anniversary of Batman rolls around, DC Comics gives us a week full of gifts concentrated on the Dark Knight and his beloved family of crime fighters. It’s been a hard year for our Caped Crusader as he’s dealt with the death of his son and the change from Dick Grayson being a super hero to embracing the role of government agent. We also get some action from femme fatales Helena Bertinelli and Catwoman as they cross paths with dangerous enemies in their different and complex walks of life.
I loved the character of Damian Wayne. He was sassy, rebellious, and gave the greatest super hero in the DC Universe a run for his money. Imagine an eleven-year-old already as angry, bitter, and vengeful as an adult Bruce Wayne. The sparks that flew between the latest incarnation of Batman and Robin were legendary.

Batman and Robin Volume 4: Requiem for Damian deals with the aftermath of Death of a Family and shows a Dark Knight struggling to come to grips with his emotions and guilt.
Catwoman Volume 2: Dollhouse consists of issues #7 through 12 of DC Comics' New 52 monthly title. Writer Judd Winick continues penning the tales with artist Adriana Melo favorably handling a majority of the penciling. Guillem March steps in to illustrate for a couple of issues in the middle.

Recently, comic books have entered into the fight to bring awareness to this horrific crime against humanity.
