    Dark Knight News - Fay Clark May 28, 2022

    Yes. Loved it. When can I reread it? Honestly, jealous of the people that get to read it for the first time. What an ending, what a shock. Everything about this series leads me to want more. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles May 24, 2022

    Williamson ends the issue on a big-time cliffhanger with one main character seemingly dead and the imposter Deathstroke finally revealed. It's all building to a can't miss finale next week. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke May 24, 2022

    It has taken seven chapters, but the big mystery is revealed in Robin #14 in a satisfying way. More importantly, the relationship between Damian and Batman continues to feel genuine while the all-out action is fun. "Shadow War" fundamentally understands comics are fun while building on the characters we know and love. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 24, 2022

    FINAL THOUGHTSRobin #14 is as strong of a penultimate chapter as you can have for a big crossover event. This comic book is jammed packed with action that shows how intense things have gotten in Shadow War, all brought to life by Roger Cruz's energetic artwork. The story developments with two major surprises to conclude Robin #14 leaves me excited to find out how Joshua Williamson plans to end Shadow War. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Jun 2, 2022

    The grips of Shadow War are just too much for Robin to overcome, as the series loses some of its normal energy and voice in service of helping conclude this big multi-series crossover event. It's still visually gorgeous and energetic but isn't reaching the same heights that have become the standard for this book. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson May 24, 2022

    Robin #14 is okay. But personally, I want to get far away from this and get back to the stories that made this book amazing and see where they take Robin next. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 31, 2022

    Retrograde art, a reveal that could be seen a mile away and a nihilistic tone that feels straight out of 1996 combine for a disappointing issue. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom May 25, 2022

    It's hard to recommend this issue when so much of it relies on the reader buying into emotional beats that carry little to no weight, and accepting events exactly as we're told they're happening. Those events that do hold significance feel drowned out under everything else that's happening. With just Shadow War: Omega left to wrap up this event, I am more than ready to see it over.

  • 4.0 - Chase Magnett May 25, 2022

    There's plenty of implied chaos, but the battle set up in Deathstroke Inc. #9 is largely maintained as background static so this issue can establish what is necessary for Shadow War: Omega next, but it's hard to imagine that issue seeming necessary to any but the most dedicated of DC Comics readers.
