    I enjoy this immensely. Robin: Son of Batman is everything I want in a comic book. The possibilty of redemption for Talia along with Damian is so important to me and I think should make a lot of people happy. Go get it already! Read Full Review

    The Rainbow Hub - Ten Van Winkle Aug 22, 2015

    Image Courtesy of DC ComicsWhere many Bat-books are out to prove themselves by taking inventory of exactly how every cool gadget works, how every grand plan is executed, how action choices are used to attain quantitative results, Robin: Son of Batman brings human stories to the forefront. The whole Bat-family needs this kind of humanization, but Damian especially and perennially requires a deft hand. In three issues we've learned volumes about Damian and Maya; any other series could call this a wrap. Robin shows a longevity, though, in the careful pruning of its protagonists and it's vibrant, thorough world-building. With such care, it seems like this level of beauty can last for a while longer yet. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Daniel Kalban Aug 20, 2015

    While a bit like filler, Robin: Son of Batman #3 is a highly entertaining chapter in a series that's already proven to be a fan favorite. While filled with hilarious banter and dynamic action, it still feels more like setup for the next chapter rather than being as strong a chapter it can be. However, it's one heck of a ride; keep your arms and legs connected to the were-bat at all times because the next challenge is deadly! Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Aug 25, 2015

    I suppose there is some law, somewhere, or at least a statistical probability, that any discussion of English-language storytelling will sooner or later end up at William Shakespeare. And, arriving at the Bard, it is very likely that the discussion will segue toHamlet. Let us then satisfy probability by quoting the Danish prince's advice to the players that they suit “the action to the words, the word to the action.” It is not given to comic book creators to follow that rule very often, as words and actions, or rather words and images, usually come from the work of different people. In the case ofRobin: Son of Batman,we see what happens when one person, in this case Patrick Gleason, really can create both script and art. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ryan Blair Aug 20, 2015

    Overall I really liked this issue, Patrick Gleasons art and writing continues to stay strong despite the double duties…I look forward to this series every month and am eagerly awaiting the confrontation between the Terminator and the Boy Wonder. Read Full Review

    Patrick Gleason both writes and draws the conflict, he shows weaknesses in each field this issue but still manages to tell a compelling story. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Terry Miles, Jr. Aug 23, 2015

    I'm a big fan of Damian, so I enjoy mostly anything with him in it (when written well). Not as strong as the first two issues, this one was still a great read. There's still a lot of background to be explored on Goliath and this ominous ‘Year of Blood' which I'm excited for. The rocky relationship between Damian and Maya is cute, and it serves well in contrast to showcase how far Damian has come along in his journey. It felt like watching your little brother or cousin growing up and getting a girlfriend even though he insists that she's gross and riddled with cooties. I'm anticipating the story to really take off after the next issue. Read Full Review

    Robin: Son of Batman #3 may not be quite as engaging as the last entry, but that doesn't stop it from being an entertaining read. Showing the Boy Wonder at his best, this latest issue is full of great developments, with there also being a few intriguing mysteries left open as we head into the next. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 19, 2015

    I love the idea of Damian growing as a character in this series, but with Patrick Gleason on both writing and penciling duties, it feels like he might have bit off more than he can chew because the art really suffers in this book and that's a shame because the story really felt like it might have been something great if only it had been portrayed better.   Read Full Review

    Gleason is a very talented creator who takes a step back here in writing and art. Hopefully, though, it's just a minor hiccup. Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - JAdam Dec 23, 2015

    The final word is this: I didnt find this issue super enthralling, but this might have been due to the disappointment of my expectations established by the seriess title. I just dont get why Batman is emphasized if the story is about Damian. In addition, as mentioned, I do not have an extremely expansive knowledge base of the DC Universe to draw upon, which almost certainly detracted from the experience. The only way for you to determine the quality of this series is to read it yourself. Issue 4 came out September 16, and that review will be up very shortly. Read Full Review

    Gleason is doing a pretty stellar job making this comic, but it's just not for me. It's not what I want out of a Robin solo comic. Read Full Review
