    On the art side of things, Chris Batista's straightforward and crisp pencils fit Dixon's brand of storytelling quite well, even if his depiction of action scenes are sometimes a bit too stiff and rigid. Again, because I haven't been reading Robin in recent years, I can't fairly claim that the title is now back on the right track, but it is darn good to see Dixon return to the character and series he helped build from the ground up.

    Overall, a good start for Dixon and there's potential for this run. If you liked the character and weren't satisfied with the book since Beechan bastardized it, you might want to give this issue a go and see how it treats you. Read Full Review

    Im doubtful right now that I will pick up issue #171 next month. I would love to keep buying the book, but I dont know that Ill be able to. Hopefully the Spoiler return is just a tease, and hopefully the other aspects that I disliked will be swept away by the great storytelling that I know Mr. Dixon is capable of. Its just a little hard to believe at this point. Read Full Review
