Writer Chris Yost (New X-Men, X-Force) and artist by Ramon Bachs (Civil War: Front Line) kick off a brand-new ongoing series right here with “The Grail” part 1 of 4! Following the aftermath of BATTLE FOR THE COWL, a new Batman watches over Gotham City. But not everyone is ready to give up on the old one. Someone believes that Bruce Wayne may still be alive…and that someone is Red Robin. But who is wearing the Red Robin costume, and why is he traveling the globe looking for a dead man? Whoever he is, he's not alone in his search!
BONUS REVIEW by Stephen Banas II

I won’t tell you who Red Robin is, but if you’ve been paying any attention at all then his identity will come as no surprise. Names aside, this was a well done issue. I thoroughly enjoyed the juxtaposition that was happening as panels from Red Robin’s costumed life and real life literally mirrored each other throughout the book. He seems to be the only one who truly believes that Bruce Wayne is still alive and is stopping at nothing in order to prove it true, even if it takes him around the world and all odds are against him. However, this mission could turn out to be more difficult than imagined once you discover who aims to stand in his way. Great story and solid art for the most part, although it did get a little rough at times, gets my recommendation for a thrilling beginning to a new series.
I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
