    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Jan 25, 2022

    Williamson creates a compelling narrative that details the accounts of the rise of Ra's Al Ghul's empire and the use of mysticism in his endeavors. It also gives an insight into the mindset of Al Ghul and his need to commit certain acts. However, at the heart of this story is familial understanding. Read Full Review

    While it may not have the high-octane action of the previous arc, it's no less compelling. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Jan 27, 2022

    Robin is a series that continues to defy expectations and cannot be classified within any sort of box as its focus shifts but never fully leaves the mission behind, a mission to deep dive into Damian Wayne and his life/legacy. Every aspect of this book finds a way to perfectly blend the more fun and outlandish with the more emotional and grounded side of things. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 25, 2022

    Robin #10 is a good issue because it plays against expectations with new details, background, and surprises sprinkled throughout. Add to the fact that it acts as a buffer of info to add new context to the war at the Lazarus Tournament and you have yourself a good superhero comic through and through. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Jan 25, 2022

    This was a great look into the al-Ghul clan. My one minor quip being the end of the battle in issue #9, left us in this backstory. I love it but found it to be a minor distraction. Read Full Review

    Although not the strongest installment, Robin continues to be a satisfying read with solid character development and a wide-open storyline. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Jan 25, 2022

    The pace of the book slows down a bit here to give readers greater insight into the Al Ghul's history, particularly Mother Souls, and that of the League of Lazarus. It's much needed information, and adds to the character and the lore of the family as a whole. It also works well as a break from the action we've had these last few issues. Plus, I always love seeing Damian learn more about his family history. Overall, it's another solid addition to the series. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 25, 2022

    All in all, the art in this issue is amazing as always and the background on Mother Soul, not to mention how the rest of the Leagues surrounding Ra's Al Ghul were put together at the creation of Ra's modern persona was greatly appreciated, but with that, some of this felt like a bit of recap to things, while fudging some other things to make them make sense to the current story. That element is a bit disappointing but even with that this is still an enjoyable issue that keeps me intrigued to read more and I can't wait to see what happens after this issue's cliffhanger.

    Robin #10 is primarily focused on establishing the series' next conflict following its tournament of fighters, and it offers a great hook at the end of this extended retcon recap. Read Full Review
