    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Oct 29, 2015

    If you are looking for gratuitous action, this won't be the issue for you. What it does have is the most moving and empathetic dialogue this series has yet to muster. The accompanying artwork also greatly assists in translating the emotional weight of the subject matter. If that isn't enough for you, be prepared to delight in an abundance of character details that are finally revealed. All in all, this was the best issue of We are Robin to date. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Oct 28, 2015

    We Are" Robin! #5 gets us back on track and raises the stakes for our heroes. There was always that fear that it would be hard to get to know all of these characters, but this creative team is progressively introducing us to who they are while showing evolution with the plot. A solid balance of character development and storytelling. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 29, 2015

    We Are Robin is back to form in this issue and it deals with the tragic death of the Robin Troy and I'm happy as hell about it because we've been waiting a while to see the ramification of that event.  On top of that we get a new threat to our heroes and a little backstory that is really starting to show us who these characters are and I couldn't be happier.  We also get Jorge Corona back on art and if you've enjoyed what he's brought to the table so far, you'll be just as happy as I am when you see what he throws down.  I love this series and I hope it lasts for a long long time.

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Oct 29, 2015

    Issue #5 of We Are Robin once again hits hard. Bermejo is creating a story where a bunch of kids are pushing back against authority (most prominently seen in the reaction Robo-Bats has given them) and slowly beginning to second guess themselves. The man they grew up admiring seems to have told them to stop their crusade, and the person helping them push forward remains a mystery to them. With the introduction of a new mentor however, it seems like the Robins will have even more decisions to face…as saying no to a person such as this…might not be an option. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Stefania Rudd Nov 2, 2015

    The writing from Lee Bermejo is great and he really knows how to put the Robins through the emotional ringer. Corona is back on the artwork with colorists who make the story move right off the page. You can also get a sense of the characters through the artwork like when you feel the pain in Izzy's face and sense the frustration in Dre's. All of it flows nicely together. The future of Gotham will always be up in the air, but with this plucky armada of red, yellow, and green, it will continue to be that much safer. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Oct 29, 2015

    Overall, this issue accomplishes both plot and character development and even finally revealed who had been controlling the homeless army from the beginning. Having it be the Court of Owls or a rogue Talon just makes me that much more excited for next month. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Nov 4, 2015

    We Are Robin gets back to normal this month and, while it can't match the thoughtfulness of last month's issue, the attention to character that had been lacking before remains. With a stronger focus on both heroes and villains and some really nice layouts, this is definitely one of the stronger issues of the fledgling series, however, we're still waiting for it to really find its groove. This month was solid but it's getting to be make or break time for this book and future issues will have to capitalize on the significant potential this issue introduced if this experiment is going to succeed.
