    When Dick Grayson grew up, he became Nightwing. When the Robin series concludes in February, there's no doubt in my mind that Tim Drake will start the next chapter in his life in the pages of Red Robin. Robin #181 is really good.

Robin #181 is a great build up to the dramatic conclusion of the Search for a Hero arc, that it earns 4.5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

From the looks of it, though, the final chapter should revolve mostly around the climactic intersection of all these threads, and one would hope Nicieza would let the dramatic dialogue and visuals speak for themselves.
