Tim Drake is dead at the hands of the Magistrate. Uh, so why is he getting back up again? With the dangerous and supercharged “Lazarus Resin” coursing through the veins of the hero once known as Robin, can Tim recover enough of his fragile psyche to finish the mission and blow the sky convoy? And can Spoiler and Darcy escape the clutches of Peacekeeper 03 in time to save their friend in the process? It all comes to a head in this cataclysmic finale!

    The story for this book is pretty damn spectacular. I have to say that this is pretty well written and has great characterizations. The art is Eddy Barrow's best work. He has never been better and really pulls out all of the stops in this comic. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Feb 11, 2021

    We need a Tim Drake book with this level of art and storytelling on a consistent basis. Fitzmartin and Barrows so clearly love Tim Drake and that fondness shines through in the level of their craft. Although the Lazarus Resin is a crutch that was not needed it does establish Tim as a very powerful character going forward in the Future State universe especially as he rises back from sure death once again at the end of the issue. This comic shows the power that a good Tim Drake story has and the potential within the character for an ongoing comic. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ian Miller Feb 10, 2021

    The two-issue Robin Eternal miniseries concludes with a powerful punch, examining the character and history of Tim Drake with great intensity and giving Stephanie Brown and new character Darcy great supporting roles (as well as fitting in nicely with other stories in Future State).

    Dark Knight News - Steve J Ray Feb 9, 2021

    Future State: Robin Eternal #2 is a near perfect comic. The only criticism I could raise is that it was all over too fast, but that's not a critique against the storytellers, it's just that I wish we had more than two issues! The ending to this story really raises a lot of questions, and I would really love for them to be answered. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Feb 9, 2021

    Eddy Barrows crafts some dark, beautifully details imagery throughout this issue. There is a gritty feel to the art and it perfectly matches the dark tone of the story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Feb 9, 2021

    Yeah, I'm a bit of a Tim Drake fanboy and maybe I'm letting my love for the character bias my opinions of this book but with these self-reflective looks aside, this is still an action-packed, fun-filled book that looks great all the way. Sure I would have liked some more things explained along the way and would have liked a better connection between Stephanie Brown's appearance here and in her Batgirls backup, but even with these problems I had a good time with this and loved seeing Robin kick ass and take names the whole way through.

    Megan Fitzmartin, Eddy Barrows, and Adrian Lucas put their best efforts forward in a thoroughly enjoyable two-issue arc that leaves me a bigger fan of Tim Drake and Stephanie Brown than I was before. It's also left me wanting to read more DC Comics about these two! Bravo! Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Feb 9, 2021

    Generally, if you're interested in Tim's future in this strange new Gotham I'd say check it out, but if you're already waning on Future State, it might not hold your attention. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Feb 13, 2021

    A perfectly adequate Tim Drake adventure that simply doesn't do anything very special with Tim or Robin. Not that any of that is this comics' fault, because DC hasn't known what to do with Tim or the Robin mantle in years. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Feb 10, 2021

    There's nothing spectacular to be found here, but it's engaging enough to warrant some consideration and that's a notable improvement on the mediocre start of Robin Eternal. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Feb 9, 2021

    The cliffhanger style ending promising more adventures of Future State Robin seems misguided and another instance where just a return to the present day would be a better fit for Tim Drake. Read Full Review

    This is a confusing mess of a comic that maybe accidentally says something great and I'm fascinated by it. Read Full Review
