    Batman vs. Robin #4 is a thrilling and emotionally resonant comic that is sure to excite fans on multiple levels. The art is epic in scope without losing sight of the more tender moments ripe for exploration in a classic father-son showdown. Waid's script is well paced while the art team fires on all cylinders, resulting in the best issue of the series and one of my favorites of the year. Read Full Review

    Batman vs Robin #4 is an uneven issue. There's a great story here, paired with wonderful art, but the need to feed into an event undermines the heart and emotion. Read Full Review
