    Comix I Read - Kyle Pitman May 10, 2015

    In the end, Batman and Robin #2 tied up one of the better stories I've read in the Convergence event, but all too soon. I would've been happy with at least one more issue to round things out. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas May 12, 2015

    I said in my review for Convergence: Batman and Robin#1 that it doesn't pay to think too deeply about the premise of this series. Particularly, it doesn't do to consider that these characters were supposedly plucked from a timeline just before Flashpoint. Several of the characterizations and relationships, particularly those of Jason and Damian, simply don't ring true to that era. They seem more drawn from Batman Incorporated than the pre-Flashpoint Batman and Robin. At most, the truest relationship seems that of Bruce and Damian, and that echoes the Batman and Robin of Peter Tomasi from after the reboot. Read Full Review

    Although this issue was a bit uninspiring, I like the premise of Convergence and look forward to seeing the story develop amid the brooding team conflicts and the inherent problems that are sure to come from being confined inside a dome. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Michael Bowie May 13, 2015

    There are certainly some interesting ideas here, its just a shame that they werent able to have the time to be properly explored. The main thing this story has ended up accomplishing, at least for me, is making me wish our three Bat-heroes would have had more time together in more recent years. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ryan Blair May 6, 2015

    Overall this issue was a slight let down from the setup of the previous one. I had really hoped to get some more character development from the Extremists and even the fight sequence was good at best. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea May 8, 2015

    Where I wasn't too impressed with last month's issue, this really decided to take another downward slide in only giving us an over the top fight while spouting over and over again about how our Bat Family loves each other.  Not real love, just rudimentary superhero love where we can pat each other on the back and save each other from dying.  That's what you get and with artwork that really didn't hold my attention, this became a really disappointing installment to the Convergence tie-ins.

    Batman-News - Terry Miles, Jr. May 7, 2015

    I was very disappointed in this tie-in. Batman and Robin has been one of the stronger titles in DC's monthly line up, and the last issues a few duds. Luckily, the main story ended on a high note so these don't count. There's a quick supercameo at the end of the issue, but the conversation seemed a bit off. The entire issue felt like it was rushed.Pre-New52 Gotham was a very fond time in comics for me, yet this comic presented no reason as to why any of it should remain. If this was Telos Idol, I would not vote for this city. Tough break, Batman and Robin. Read Full Review

    All in all, unless you're a diehard fan of some obscure Justice League Europe villains, Convergence: Batman and Robin #2 is one to avoid. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson May 7, 2015

    "Convergence: Batman and Robin" #2 is sloppily assembled. It's been said many times that every comic book could be someone's first, so it's probably a good thing that this wasn't intended to be such a comic, for -- if it were -- it may also be their last. Read Full Review
