    One of the nice things about a weekly series is that the creative team has the freedom to veer off into different directions with different characters while not losing too much focus on the main story. Batman and Robin Eternal #13 is like that. This issue could well be called "The Secret History of Cassandra Cain," and yet it fits so seamlessly into the overall story that it doesn't seem like a fill in or deadline emergency.

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Dec 30, 2015

    Issue 11, 12, and 13 have definitely felt like a little mini-trilogy set in the midst of the larger arcing story that is Eternal, providing us with essential information on the backstory of the characters introduced to us within these pages. While I had a small lapse in comprehension of the material on a first read through, on consecutive reads, it was much more clear what the team had intended for me to take away from the story and I found it fulfilling on almost all levels.

    BATMAN AND ROBIN ETERNAL shows that a weekly series can be a success. James Tynion IV and Scott Snyder's story has been captivating as we get more and more revelations of the bigger story week after week. With an issue almost fully dedicated to Cassandra Cain, fans of the character can be overjoyed. The overall story has been great but there have been some moments the weekly schedule makes moments feel drawn out a little. Marcio Takara's art is perfect for a Cassandra-focused issue and Dean White's colors are top notch. We've now reached the half way point of the series and there's still a lot more for us to discover.

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Jan 1, 2016

    Issue #13 of Batman and Robin Eternal gives more of the drama we've been seeing in this series. Once again it's an issue absent of Red Hood and Red Robin, so there isn't much room for comic relief (ba-doom-psh) as we witness more traumatic scenes from both Cassandra's past andpresent.Tynion doesn't hold back in his depiction of Cassandra's ascent into becoming a hero as he's accompanied by the skillful artwork ofMarcio Takara and Dean White. The action scenes by Takara are as dynamic as they are heartfelt when they need to be – the scene featuring the quote above being a prime example of that. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 30, 2015

    This wasn't the series best issue, but it was one of the better ones.  James Tynion gives us a heart felt Cassandra Cain history lesson and I really liked it.  While it may not have pushed the overall story ahead as much as I was hoping, it ended with a crazy cliffhanger that I'm hoping gets resolved soon.  If this weekly could maintain the quality of story and art found here, I'd gladly stick around for the second half of the story.  We can only hope.

    While this did turn out to be the Cassandra Cain Hour, Dick Grayson and Harper Row show up at the very end, just in time for an explosive cliffhanger to mark the halfway point of the series. Anytime James Tynion IV handles scripting duties, we end up with a rather good read. While this issue won't receive the highest rating from me, I do believe it's well worth your money.

    Overall, a bit of a filler issue but Cassandra's moment with the Dark Knight really struck an emotional chord. It helped add a little bit of depth to a tortured character. Read Full Review

    There's still a lot to unravel in the second half of "Batman and Robin Eternal," but this feels like a satisfying way to close out both the first half of the series. While a little more narrower in focus than "Batman Eternal," we're still getting enough bang for our buck in "Batman and Robin Eternal." I'll be back with the New Year. Read Full Review
