    Overall, another solid entry in the title as we inch closer to the finish line. There are four issues left and next week's should be the beginning of the end. Read Full Review

    A great issue for characterization. Seeing Batman in this light makes me itch to have Bruce return to the cowl and make an appearance by the end of this series. However, it may be something that works best as something that the Robins have to finish without Bruces involvement. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Mar 3, 2016

    Following last issue's flashback heavy focus, scripter Genevieve Valentine allows the team a chance to regroup, reassess, and refocus. It's a move that leads to some emotional, if forced, exchanges, Valentine using the aside to explore the team's shared legacy and the overall weight of the cowl. Exploring the various personalities of each Robin has been part of the fun so far in this Eternal run, yet the look we get here does feel shoehorned to fit the eventual turnaround. Read Full Review

    After the amazing stories thatGenevieve Valentine delivered back in Batman&Robin Eternal #7+8, I was expecting something fantastic, and I just didn't get it. While this issue isn't without good sections, several elements feel overlycontrived and cliche. On top of that, we get some questionable characterizations when it comes to certain longtime Batfamily members that I just couldn't let slide. I understand what the creative team was trying to do, but it simply didn't work for me. Read Full Review

    I should have known that after loving the last issue of Eternal, I was only setting myself up for a big disappointment.  This issue had bad dialogue, poor characterizations and awful art.  While we get a really good flashback scene, most of this issue was just setup for the cliffhanger and this book's stretch run.  I am tired and just want it to end.  Please, make it end.

    the dialog just feels disjointed, with absolutely NO natural flow to it. — people just DO NOT speak like this in real life! when characters die you feel absolutely nothing for them. page 2 is filled with the same panel repeated 4 times one right after another. LAZY! then there's a bunch of dialog from Harper yammering on about how her mother used to re-use gift wrapping paper. …what has me the MOST disappointed is Damian Wayne was teased in the final panel of issue #20, and last week he wasn’t in the issue and this week he’s just standing around talking, and listening to the other 'Robins' whine and complain! we get a flashback scene of Damian Wayne and his father, but it’s a scene of more talking!!! and it’s NOT very clear coherent dialog either!!! later on in the issue (villain) David Cain brings his daughter Cassandra Cain and Harper Row to Mother in chains, and Mother Kills David for being weak and a failure. …are we supposed to believe that Mother won’t just kill both Cassandra and Harper now? …NONE of these events coincide with any of the other current DC titles so this series is irrelevant and skippable!! … i didn’t think they’d be able to give us a series worse than the first Batman Eternal, but this is absolutely heinous! … maybe having SO many writers involved with the plot is NOT a good idea?? … sure it’s only a $2.99 comic? … but when you factor in that it’s 4 times a month, that’s $11.96 a month of bad story telling!!! …DC please stop putting out lackluster garbage!!!

    This is not how you handle most of these characters. Dick especially has been used and abused the past few months for the sake of the direction writers wanted to take their plot. Fortunately he's had Grayson to showcase the best of him, but jeesh. If your idea for a story requires characters acting unlike themselves, it's probably not a very good idea.
