    The past is revisited as Talia is questioned by Director Chase. Meanwhile, Robin and the Bat Family battle the Red Triangle gang. Afterwards, Batman and Robin learn of a criminals escape and soon search for answers. Later, the duo meets with Talia, and Robin makes a difficult decision. Then Talia goes her own way as an unexpected secret is revealed. Finally, Robin returns to Lazarus Island where he is met by someone surprising.The Story: Family dynamics encompass this surprisingly heartfelt chapter. Damians growth over the past 15 chapters has been palpable. Watching him taking on the role of peacemaker between his parents was both difficult and relatable. I really appreciate how his experiences are now informing his decisions. I am excited for his new arc involving Lazarus Island and what lessons Damians will take from the journey.This action filled issues features interesting and well-conceived battle scenes. I also found the realistic, modern design and detailed drawings to be emoti Read Full Review

    Overview`Between a rock and a hard place, Damian Wayne continues his journey to become the person that he wants to be in another character-driven emotional and fun issue of ‘Robin'. Keeping to that core has been the story of success for this series, and the next two issues look to wrap that all up and hopefully lead us to whatever is next for this dynamic character.

    You should always be picking up this series, if you aren't by now, then I'm not doing my job properly. If you don't believe how amazing the writing is, or how well the artists work together, just see for yourself. If you read Robin #15 you'll see Damian become a young man in front of your eyes. I did, and it made me so happy to witness this level of character growth. Yet, I'm also very worried for the rest of the world, having to encounter him! Read Full Review

    From the start, this has been one of the most entertaining books in the DC lineup, and it looks like it's ending with a bang. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jun 28, 2022

    Robin #15 puts Damian back on track to development as a character. It's nice to see "Shadow War" didn't derail the work Williamson and company did on Lazarus Island and this issue reminds us Damian may have strong parental figures when they're around him solo, there's still some stuff to work through when they're together.

    The Batman Universe - Ian Miller Jun 29, 2022

    The ease and skill with which Williamson and Cruz handle tying together the threads of multiple plotlines from multiple titles, give character moments to well over a handful of characters, and drive the book forward into its final arc is intensely satisfying, despite the bittersweet taste of knowing the book is ending.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jun 28, 2022

    Joshua Williamson and Roger Cruz did an excellent job at building on all previous issues with their work on Robin #15. Everything in this issue, from the interaction between the Batman Family to the reunion with Bruce Wayne and Talia Al Ghul, got over how well developed of a character Damian is. The ending of Robin #15 effectively transitioned us into the final story arc for this series. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Jun 28, 2022

    Robin #15 is a solid book that returns to what it did best: establish Robin as his own hero, even a leader, one who can begin a new chapter in his life, and for other characters we still dont yet know well enough. Hopefully, we wont have to endure any more parental tugs-of-war as it seemed clear long ago Damian had made his own path. Lets hope he gets to keep blazing it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 3, 2022

    Robin #15 continues what we love about this book - a version of Damian Wayne that continues to evolve. This issue sets up some things for the upcoming Batman vs. Robin and has one of the best cliffhangers I've seen in years! Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Chase Magnett Jun 29, 2022

    The real purpose of Robin #15 is to set the stage for the series' future, which refocuses itself on Damian's independent journey and the colorful allies and setting he's accumulated beyond his father's cowl. It's that promise of what's to come that provides real fuel for an issue primarily focused on post-event bookkeeping. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Jun 28, 2022

    Generally this issue felt like both the end and beginning of arcs for Damian and Talia. Williamson does a good job providing Damian with an opportunity to air out some issues with his parents, while asserting his own independence. At the same time, the story struggles under the weight of time. The emotional beats it works into the story are good, but need more time to be further developed. With the last remnants of Shadow War behind it, hopefully the book will fall back into the easy stride it had before the event took over next issue. Read Full Review
