    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Dec 17, 2015

    I've been very pleased with “Robin War” so far, and this issue continues to deliver the fun. I think that “fun” is the operative word here, and an underrated commodity these days. People are always trying to put meaning and higher purpose behind their stories. Trying to say something about society and alter the way we think about the world. I'm not saying that this story doesn't have that, I'm just pointing out that it isn't afraid to have fun at the same time. It just reminds me of the good old days where comics were entertainment first and foremost, and if you got a message, that was a bonus. While this specific issue is definitely geared for the action oriented, you'll also find plenty of humor and some meta commentary to round out your reading pleasure. I had a great time with this issue and am seriously looking forward to next week when we get part 5 of “Robin War” in Robin: Son of Batman #7. Read Full Review

    Giandomenico's art fits the bill this issue as well. It's a different take from Randolph's smooth and up close approach on the characters, but it's very flowing and free once the action gets underway. There is a scene with Tim Drake that is absolutely brilliant with how it was handled. There's so much for everyone in this book story wise and art wise. Read Full Review

    The Kliq Nation - Timdogg Dec 16, 2015

    We Are Robin #7 is a fun installment in the "Robin War" crossover. While the only time we really spend with the core cast is with Duke Thomas, it doesn't take away from the overall enjoyment of the story and art. Besides, we get to see from Duke's POV how insane the world of Robin really is. Read Full Review

    If you are following Robin War, you will definitely no want to miss this issue. If you are unsure of “Robin War,” this is not a bad issue to try out. It gives enough information for a new reader that one wont feel lost going in. This is a wonderful chapter in a crossover that is celebrating Robins 75th Anniversary. Theres something for almost every comic reader here- character, mystery and an engaging story. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Shane Tydeman Dec 21, 2015

    The story's pacing is interesting, starts slow with the dialogue between Gordon's Batman and Grayson looking for the pieces and lured to prison and then.. Boom! Action with the battle between Red Robin and the Red Hood. I love action especially with swords and guns, this book does not disappoint. The scenes look like something either from a movie or animated series which was pretty cool! Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Eric Joseph Dec 17, 2015

    Despite most of what I said above, a good portion of the issue seemed uneventful, but this is still a must read for those following "Robin War." Be sure to come back next week when the adventure continues in the pages ofRobin: Son of Batman#7. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 19, 2015

    Robin War has been pretty fun so far. It's not about to go down in history as one of the greatest Batman stories of all time, or even one of the greatest Robin stories of all time, but it's sufficiently entertaining. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Dec 21, 2015

    While the main storyline of this book is simple and unvarnished, the art makes We Are Robin #7 a worthwhile read regardless. Carmine Di Giandomenico is a real catch for DC, and if they know what's good for them, they'll continue to throw high-profile work his way. We Are Robin #7 may not reinvent the wheel - or even this crossover - but it is a particularly stylish entry for an easily overlooked book. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Dec 17, 2015

    Now with all that said, I still enjoyed the issue I just was expecting more in regards to plot development. Each issue has been a lot of fun for me and I am glad the 75th year of Robin has been given as much love as it has with the multiple stories honoring the character. The Robin War, as a whole, has been really entertaining for me and I am still very much onboard and excited for what is to come. Regarding this issue, I was just whelmed (reference from Young Justice that fans of the show should know). Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Dec 16, 2015

    We Are Robin #7 is a slow, sadly disappointing bump in the middle of Robin War. Not a whole lot was accomplished in the issue outside of the ending and the writing and artwork weren't as up to snuff as previous issues of the series or the event in general. If you are just reading the series and not interested in Robin War, you can safely skip it without missing a single thing. Otherwise, if you are here just for Robin War, keep your expectations low for this one. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Dec 16, 2015

    If you weren't a fan of the Detective Comics part of the Robin War, I can't think you'll be a fan of this either because it's just more of the same while we're left wondering how no one knew about this special prison being built in Gotham........... is that too much of a spoiler?  Anyway, the art feels off for what we'd expect from this title and all in all, this is just another title to this event that is really starting to make me wonder if it will all be worth it in the end.  Hopefully the next chapter to this event will get things back on track because this wasn't a very good issue of We Are Robin or a good installment to the Robin War and you'd probably have a better time watching Chained Heat with Linda Blair if you're into the whole prison thing.

    It wasn't the best comic of the series, but it wasn't bad. 7.5.

    After a few too many issues of Duke's character and abilities being developed wayyy too quickly, it's actually his own series that puts him back in his place. I was very glad to see the gulf between the true Robins and the wannabes stated outright. Props to writer Lee Bermejo for that, as well as the exchange between Grayson and Gordon about the ethics of child-vigilantes. It's not something I've seen brought up as often as it probably should be. Unfortunately there is but one black mark against this issue and it's a problem that seems to be plaguing Robin War throughout - the capabilities of Dick Grayson. In part 2 of Robin War (Grayson #15) we see him get out-sparred by Duke Thomas, in part 3 (Detective Comics #47) we see him get beaten in one-on-one combat by Jim Gordon and now on the second page of this issue we see him seemingly slip and need saving while scaling a building. That would not happen. Acrobatics are Grayson's thing, he could leap around Gotham in his sleep. Jim isn't used to climbing buildings; he's new to this. It would've made perfect sense if it was the other way round, with fish-out-of-water Jim Gordon losing his grip and Grayson the acrobat being able to catch someone in free-fall while clinging to the side of a building. It'd also be way more poetic, to have Dick to go from being caught on the previous page to being the one doing the catching. It's not a huge deal, but it's a noticeable oddity in an otherwise level-headed issue.
