Batman Li’L Gotham (2012) 1

Cover dated Oct. 31, 2012, the title says it all: “Halloween.”

On patrol Halloween night, Batman learns his son, Damian, has never experienced trick or treat. Like a scene from the 1966 Batman television series, Damian is not allowed to eat his collected candy until after supper.

In a show of compassion, Batman foots the bill for his rogue’s gallery’s dinner while the Gotham Police wait for them outside.

This all-ages funny book is just that, a fun book. The artwork is classic watercolor, mixing enough dark with light to temper the story’s mood.

Damian Wayne, aka Robin, is still being worked into the DC Universe at this point. Grant Morrison’s introduction of the character in Batman 655 left many readers unsympathetic. As time and writers passed Damian became more of an accepted son of Batman even co-starring in Super Sons with Superman’s progeny.
