The stunning conclusion to "Search for a Hero"and a "Faces of Evil"issue! In order to stop Anarky, do you impose order with an iron fist or embrace chaos? Or can Robin find a different way? After "Batman R.I.P.,"Gotham City demands a better class of hero, and the new Robin is going to give them exactly what they deserve...

    Oddly, Robin #182 concluded a major arc and was turning point for Robin as the hero he was always meant to grow up to be. This would have been the perfect ending point for the series, but DC has decided to squeeze one more issue out of the creative team as a lead in to the Battle for the Cowl. Even with the odd resolution or two in the story, I enjoyed this issue a great deal. Nicieza and Williams II are going out on a high note, and depending on how the next issue goes, this could be the series they are remembered for. Robin #182 earns 4 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    The opening page of this issue is a flashback to one of Tim's first outings as Robin, with Batman by his side. In that moment, we catch a glimpse of what Tim is missing, as well as the sadness and sense of loss that he is attempting to stave off by throwing himself into the role of Gotham's protector. Tim's strong emotional core is what has always made him one of my favorite comic characters, and it's a quality that also separates from the other potential heirs to the legacy of Bruce Wayne. He's come a long way since showing up at Dick Grayson's doorstep, insisting that "Batman needs a Robin!", and this issue has me damn excited about where Tim Drake may be headed next.

    From reading this you know my one problem with Robin # 182. It's just too big to ignore because it could have been a game changer. But other than that, Robin #182 was a fitting conclusion to "Search for a Hero" and one of the better Robin tales I've read. Read Full Review
