The "7 Days of Death" begin with assassination attempts on Bruce Wayne and Lucius Fox by the international assassin Scarab but isn't she in jail? To find the killer, Red Robin may have to spring the real Scarab from prison! Is this an assault on Wayne Enterprises, or do the first two days of death signal the start of a deeper conspiracy?

    Red Robin does pretty much everything"mystery, thriller, action, romance, teen drama"well, although it lacks that oomph to really become a top-tier title. Read Full Review

    It's nice to see another appearance by Lynx. I'd actually like more of her but Red Robin's life is chaotic enough just fitting her in for a couple of panels (like this one). The storyline begun here should give us quite a few action-packed issues as the league of Scarab (Scarab League?) sets their sights squarely on a single hero. Sadly, Tim loses a couple of cool points for only seeing Raiders of the Lost Ark three times? Worth a look. Read Full Review

    BUT, Marcus To, props to you my man because at least the art was as good as always and the pretty pictures helped me get through this horribly boring, weak, and disappointing issue. I don't mean to be harsh… well, yes I do. Unfortunately, this issue was an epic fail. For me, anyway. Read Full Review

    Red Robin #23 was a solid start to the latest arc for this title. Though this is yet another assassin arc for the title, Nicieza does a good job delivering a quick start to the arc. As I am a sucker for tournament arcs in mangas, I look forward to seeing who else Nicieza will involve in this arc outside of Tim and the Scarabs. Read Full Review
