Robin and Ravager have caught up with Deathstroke and Respawn! Can they convince Deathstroke to turn himself in...or fight to the death? And what startling revelation does Robin learn that shocks this story to its core? Plus, Batman goes deep into the conspiracy behind Ra's al Ghul's death and discovers it's bigger than he thought. He must call in backup...just not the backup you'd expect!

    Get Your Comic On - Dave Jones May 3, 2022

    Without doubt The Shadow War is my favourite story arc so far this year it perfectly jumps between issues blending together different veins of the story. A super arc which is changing the landscape of DC. Read Full Review

    Read it, and do yourself a favor. What else are you doing? Nothing as interesting as what's happening here, I can tell you that as a FACT. Honestly, I never know what's about to happen next and if I guess, it's never correct. That's half the fun! Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Apr 27, 2022

    While readers unfamiliar to the event will be able to follow along with the story, this issue may feel more like a stand alone story than part of a broader arc. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 26, 2022

    With Josh Williamson writing all chapters of this event, I was wondering if it would all start to feel the same and lose the individual touch of his three series. I didn't need to worry, as this is clearly a Robin issue, with a bit of the lighter touch that Williamson brings to the book. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond May 3, 2022

    ‘Shadow War' hits Robin's solo title in an overall engaging entry that is connected to the rest but continues to do what this book has always done well, tackle deep character moments with most of them centered on family. Just a fun and colorful story that adds a bit to the crossover and moves a few pieces forward for that book but mostly moves forward pieces for where the series is sure to go after the event.

    Some reinforcements arrive to aid Batman although hopefully this doesn't come at the expense of keeping Batman in the background. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 26, 2022

    Robin #13 is a good chapter in the "Shadow War" event thanks to some major reveals and some superhero alliances you won't see coming. Ultimately his event is an excuse to get characters to punch each other over a misunderstanding, but that's kinda what superheroes do, right? Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 2, 2022

    Robin #13 was a big improvement over the previous chapter of Shadow War. Joshua Williamson and Roger Cruz brought all parties of this Batman, Robin, and Deathstroke Inc. crossover together in a way that made every character shine. Now the second half of Shadow War is set-up to, hopefully, be even better than the first half of this crossover event. Read Full Review

    Robin #13 is essentially one long rooftop conversation. It starts and ends with a bit of action and includes some punches in the middle, but those brief bursts of violence serve primarily to mix up the proceedings as there's never really any question about risk or stakes in this dialogue.

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Apr 26, 2022

    Robin #13 is good. Not great, and not stellar. But it's a visual fun fest that grants 'Shadow War' some much-needed plot direction despite the slow pace and limitations on certain characters. I still recommend it but would love to get past this story. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Apr 27, 2022

    This issue pushes the Shadow War event forward in a few ways. It pairs Batman and Robin back up and sends Deathstroke and Respawn off in a new direction. We get a few character moments, but because the event is so fast paced, it rushes past them, leaving me as a reader wishing for a lot more than we actually get. For now, my suggestion is to skip Shadow War if you're not already invested. However, if you are, this is a key piece of the narrative moving forward. Read Full Review
