      One of the most ridiculous stories involving the Batman done by someone other than Frank Miller himself I m quite surprised that a plot like this was even approved for release Batman and Robin Dick Grayson argue over a rock star s intentions and the genre itself This is one of the few adventures in the early days of Batman, and a little after Robin becomes his sidekick The story was filled with an over saturated amount of absurd and unnecessary lyrics Some panels were filled with text that just [...]

      This is the worst Batman story ever if I could give it negative stars I would

      Gerard Jones and Gene Ha collaborate to mesh the world of the Dark Knight with musical culture The premise of the graphic novel sees Batman and Robin Dick Grayson at odds over a case involving famous musician Isaak Crowe A down and out rock and roll star, Crowe seems to be inspiring a new generation of disenchanted youth to commit crimes in his name While Batman has no doubt that the spree begins and ends with Crowe, Robin defies his mentor and looks for a way to prove his idol s innocence The e [...]

      Seriously How on earth did this get past the drunken brainstorming stage Here s the plot, Batman and Robin seriously argue over a Rock N Roll singer and whether he s bad for society while his evil manager manipulates him into craziness We get a flashback to Bruce s early pre Batman days and see why he hates punk music And spoilere manager is Elvis Pressley s or the DC version twin brother I can t believed I just typed that Ridiculous stuff that would have been hilarious if it wasn t meant to be [...]

      The general plot points were great, unfortunately the actual writing was pretty terrible, especially the bits of songs.

    6. Yves on said:

      J ai tr s peu dire sur cette bande dessin e part le fait qu elle soit tr s mauvaise L histoire tourne autour d une vedette rock qui commet des actes criminels On y voit un Batman compl tement r actionnaire et qui semble sorti droit des ann es cinquante Ce fut un ennuis total de lire cette merde qui n aurait jamais d voir le jour viter tout prix

    7. Ming Siu on said:

      Well, this was awful The plot is ridiculous and doesn t work at all, Batman is essentially useless, and spends all his time looking very silly, prancing about in broad daylight Batman and Robin are so completely out of character, you want to slap them.

      This is the worst Batman book I have ever read So let me get this straight Bruce Wayne became Batman because he let Sid Vicious kill Nancy WTF

    9. Kenya Starflight on said:

      I admit to not being a huge Batman fan, so perhaps I m not the best judge of a Batman comic but boy howdy, is this one terrible I happened upon it in a list of terrible comic books, and the premise sounded so insane that I knew I had to give it a read myself I m not sure how wise that was, because this comic was bad, but not in the so bad it s entertaining way Sure, it s downright goofy and insane at times, but the sheer stupidity and ineptness of this title, coupled with mediocre art and downri [...]

      There is a well used, probably overused, phrase often heard these days That phrase is HOT MESS, and it perfectly describes this book Holy WTF , Batman Wow, I simply want to know what they were smoking downing popping when DC put this on the market as the 20th century came to a close Actually, forget that the fact that this made it past the proverbial drawing board stage is mind boggling And yet I was enjoyably laughing at some of the awfulness, or maybe it was just outright strangeness the brai [...]

      I had completely forgotten this since reading it upon publication Finding it at the library, it s ok, a Batman and Robin meet rock and roll story in 80 pages that might have appeared in one twenty comic book issue written by Mike Friedrich, Frank Robbins, or Denny O Neil circa 1970 1971.That said, I rally like the work of this writer and artist here Gerry Jones throws some nice allusions and nods to critic Dave Marsh, to an Elvis like character only with hair disturbingly blond, even a broad por [...]

    12. J.M. Hushour on said:

      As a Batman completist, you take the good with the bad This would be one of the bad Robin really likes this rock singer, who is lame, unimpressive, and is seeing hallucinations of Elvis telling him to destroy the Hollywood money making machine via violence and mobs of his teenage fans Batman hates music, especially punk music since it is heavily implied here that he was present but unable to stop Sid Vicious from killing what s her face Nancy, right You might be what the fuckin already, but it g [...]

      I have many friends who are musicians From blues, jazz, rock, and even death metal And I tell them all about this comicSO THEY CAN SEE HOW STUPID IT IS It s a rock fable if you can call it that that demonizes rock music, and fails to make any kind of point what so ever with it s tries to be poetic, meaningful, and smart Stupid, boring, and insulting to anyone who plays rock music, or listens to it The Tormented artist is a whiny little shit who just complains about everything in a quest of some [...]

    14. Brini on said:

      I don t understand how some books get into publishing This comic book is one of those I read it and got nothing out of it The story is ludicrous Basically Batman thinks Rock n Roll is the devils work while Robin disagrees They argue about it and seperate while there is that one big bad rocker on drugs who thinks he s God and has to force everybody into buying his banned record Because everyone thinks Rock n Roll is the devils work even Two Face and Joker talk about it The big danger in this book [...]

    15. Steven Morton on said:

      Just not a great Batman and Robin story using music in a super hero story has to be right and Fortunate Son was not it Batman being against rock music because it played a minor role in his parents deaths and a tragic time in his adolescence I just don t buy it Gene Ha s art was good just did not like the way he drew Batman s cowl I am a fan of the eyeless look Only recommend this to the Batman completists out there anyone else pass.

    16. Archin on said:

      A failed opportunity to write a comic book about a damaged Rock hero and criticize the music industry Batman s campy presence and creepy behavior feels unnecessary, as he is given some short of second backstory involving a crazed punk singer The dialogue attempts to contain a deep message even though it absolutely doesn t Don t waste your money on this issue.

    17. Oscar on said:

      This is bad enough to in some moments be considered amusing But it s mostly bad A mess of ideas and references, with bad characterisation of both Batman he thinks all rock is mad and evil, based on a new backstory involving punk and Robin The end twist is absurd.

    18. Andrew on said:

      The worst and most ridiculous Batman story that I ve ever read Only bought it because it was 2 and it s considered Modern post Year One Batman canon I suppose if you re REALLY into classic rock, you might get a kick out of itbut everyone else steer clear of this garbage.

    19. Brian on said:

      I give this story two stars because it features Batman and a blonde haired knock off of Elvis There is nothing else good about this story except for its end Not that the end is good, but, rather, that this shit story has ended and you can start the process of forgetting this one.

    20. Jimmy Osterhout on said:

      This is easily the most poorly contrived Batman story ever conceived Hell, it s the dumbest story I have ever read in my entire life and sadly it will now rot on a shelf in my collection as the one book that no one should ever subject themselves to.

    21. Kathleen on said:

      Rock and Roll fanwank Too referential to be interesting unless you ve subscribed to Spin or Rolling Stone at some point in your life I liked loved the idea of Batman having failed to save Nancy from Sid Vicious, but really didn t buy him in the roll of the establishment.
