Robin #159-#160

Robin #159-#160
In Robin #159, Tim went on a date with his tutor, Zoanne. Batman asked for his help, Tim replied that he didn't really need him, couldn't he go without, and Batman answered in the affirmative. But as Tim and Zoanne continued their date, Batman and the meta he was fighting came crashing into the restaurant they were eating in. So Tim intervened, in his civillian identity, and saved Batman. Pure EXCELLENCE.

Robin #160, though, not so much. Sure it's OKAY, and the art is stunning as always. But there just seems to be something missing here, and I can't quite figure out what it is. It's just a certain je ne sai quas. When a book has it, you just know it. And this issue doesn't. That's alright though, they can't all be the greatest.
But, man, check out that great cover.
