    This is the kind of comic I would have loved to read as a kid. Had it existed, I might have actually read comics consistently instead of having to come back to the medium later as an adult, something for which Im very, very grateful as I discover the comics I should have been reading in the 90s. Theres no grittiness or rape or hookers in capes, just good, honest, fun. Im having the time of my life with Red Robin. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Aug 5, 2010

    This series is definitely in the running for my favorite comic of 2009 and this issue is a great example of why. Fabian Nicieza and Marcus To are working perfectly in sync on this series and the results are just phenomenal. There aren't many major flaws in the issue and those that do exist are more than made up for by its strengths. You really cannot go wrong with this book. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Zack Freeman Aug 4, 2010

    I've always been of two minds about the Bat family. On the one hand, the concept of Batman having a whole team of associates always seems to run counter to his basis as a brooding loner. This title, however, demonstrates how appealing the notion of Batman's "children" struggling with how to honor his legacy can be. This is a solo title, but it's actually one of the best team books on the shelves and something I'm looking forward to reading every month. Read Full Review

    I'm assuming Babs will weigh-in on this elaborate plan to throw Vicki Vale off the scent of the Bat-family, and I'm hopeful that the moment will be given the time and weight it deserves. At the same time, if he had weighed the effect of such a plan on one of his closest allies and went forward anyway, it does help push Red Robin further into a morally ambiguous gray area which should give plenty of opportunities for new stories. Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review
