    Robin School is in session in Grayson #15, Part 2 of "Robin War". As headmaster, Grayson proves how he's one step ahead of everyone. The master manipulator. But all for a good cause. Even if it wasn't tying into "Robin War", Grayson is one of the highlights from DC Comics each month. Read Full Review

    This is that rare combination, a great tie-in that is also a great regular issue as well.  This issue rockets the Robin War forward and I am so excited to see what happens next.   Grayson has been my favorite DC book for a while and I hope this issue shows people not yet reading it what they've been missing.  By that, I mean great characterizations, dialogue, story and art.  That's a combination that's hard to beat.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Dec 16, 2015

    The Robin War begins with a surprise maneuver from the Gray Son of Gotham, but that very title reveals the danger in Grayson's maneuvers. The Court of Owls is also no amateur club when it comes to manipulation. Is responsibility is a great strength or a serious flaw? As with so many qualities, it appears to be both. And as the War grows more complex, the ramifications of this event grow larger. Grayson wants to protect his family. But one must remember that one of his ancestors is the Court's most deadly assassin. And what of his new family in Spyral? Quite a burden, even for someone whose shoulders are as broad as his.

    You need not have read any previous issue ofGraysonto follow this book, although you need to have readRobin War#1. Tom King and Tim Seeley continue to prove they have a real handle on these characters and it certainly helps that Mikel Janin delivered some incredible artwork. Expect next month to be business as usual for this title. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 12, 2015

    The first issue of Robin War was kind of a disjointed mess, with so many characters to juggle and introduce, and a rotating collection of artists that just didn't work very well together. But as could be expected, the glory of Grayson solidifies everything down to one great story. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Dec 11, 2015

    A better tie-in than any crossover really deserves, though that isn't surprising given the caliber of the creative team. A suitable progression of the narrative, a meditation on what it means to be Robin and a hero in general, and a genuinely exciting surprise ending elevate this above any shortcomings it may have. It may not fullystand on its own, but it's good on its own. Read Full Review

    Grayson #15 is a terrific continuation to the Robin War crossover, as given the slightly disappointing nature of the opening chapter, we needed something to elevate the quality of this event. Amongst this the creative team also gave some strong developments for Grayson, with the character feeling like the natural leader figure during this tale. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Dec 10, 2015

    It's always a crapshoot whenever an existing series is forced to bend its narrative to fit a larger event book, but Grayson's Robin War tie-in is a surprisingly seamless affair. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Corbin Pool Dec 10, 2015

    This had so many great moments between all of the Robins, and I loved it for that. It seems Dick's days as a secret agent are coming to an end, and we may possibly see Nightwing again… I just hope it's by this same creative team. Read Full Review
