    By addressing some interesting humanistic questions in its own thoughtful, if slightly clinical, way, a dependably entertaining title gains some nice depth. Read Full Review

    All that said, I cannot honestly tell you that I didn't actually like reading this. Because I did, even if it does dash all my hopes and dreams about Tim being who I originally thought, the issue was entertaining. And in the end, that's what comics are there for. Read Full Review

    Again, and I've been saying this A LOT when it comes to the DC books lately, this issue was very rushed. The assassination tournament stuff was wrapped up, as was the longer running sister of Al Ghul thing. Tim finally broke up with Tam Fox, which doesn't bother me because I never really got their relationship. And in one quick page we get the Lucius Fox is alive announcement, as well as a quick one page blurb showing Cass and Tim getting owned by the Cricket. I mean, I did like the way everything ended, so I can't complain about any of that, it was all just so brisk... I'd have loved to have seen a longer battle between Cass/Tim and the Cricket. Or a longer scene showing exactly how Tim broke the news to Tam about her father. But alas, it was not to be. Still in all though, this issue was quite good, probably one of the better DC books I've read in some time, so I guess I can't complain too much... Read Full Review

    The real shocker comes in issue's final panels where we see Red Robin's impressive new base of operations as well as learn that our hero has “assassinated Captain Boomerang.” Like most of DC's current Bat-titles I'm sorry to see this one going away, but it looks like the final issue will be a doozy. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    It's a pity that this title is going to be gone after the reboot, as I really was a fan. Red Robin, Robin and Nightwing always were enjoyable to me because they took characters that had to live under Bruce's shadow and gave them the room to breathe. Read Full Review
