Robin's investigation into Lazarus Island is put on hold as Lord Death Man strikes. Damian and Hawke are called to Tokyo by Flatline to help her deal with her crazed mentor. Which means...killer-bros road trip!

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

    Robin #16 is a bright tale despite the secrecy of Lazarus Island. It feels like an older comic of heroes teaming up, a new Dynamic Duo. Robin and Connor are committed to helping fighters with nowhere to go, giving them a purpose and functioning as true heroes. I am loving Damian more and more with every issue. Definitely worth reading to see how the Boy Wonder is molded into a leader, plus what becomes of these other characters. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Aug 2, 2022

    Robin's penultimate issue returns the series to where it began in many ways by showcasing all the character, heart, and deep moments that made it such a delightful series to follow. Damian's future isn't quite clear at this point with the series about to end, and an upcoming mini, but this series has put him on such a great trajectory as he's been developed more as a character than he has been in quite some time.

    Dark Knight News - Fay Clark Jul 27, 2022

    Every time I think this series can't get any better, it goes and blows me away as it seems that there's still so much more that this creative team can do. Where it's leading is so exciting, because I have no idea where that will end up being. Please, please, PLEASE read this series. Damien is finally growing on me as a character… and Joshua Williamson's the main reason why. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 26, 2022

    Robin is consistently a fun adventure book that's good for at least one fight scene every issue. Throw in the way the creators are weaving together multiple plotlines in a series that has developed Robin in interesting ways, and you have an instant-buy comic every single month. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 26, 2022

    With only one issue left of Williamson's run and no guarantee on where this will all be followed up on, there is a lot left to resolve, but it's amazing just how much good work the writer has done for the character of Damian since he started. The character was in a particularly bad place when the story began, and now he's a likable and compelling lead with a strong supporting cast. This is a Damian I'd love to see leading a new Teen Titans. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Jul 26, 2022

    Robin #16 is a return to form. The relationships between the characters are bright and vibrant, the story is fun and engaging, and the tone has turned back to something that feels like it fits into the rest of the book. I love getting to see the characters we've come to know get to relax a little bit and settle into a new normal, all while dealing with the strange but valid threat that is Lord Death Man.

    There's a good sense of humor throughout this adventureincluding a wonderfully campy portrayal of Lord Death Manas the two legacy heroes fall into a natural rhythm of their own. Watching them operate through a variety of traps and encounters together makes an issue without much action still seem plenty exciting. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 26, 2022

    FINAL THOUGHTSIt says a lot for how special a superhero comic book is that it can overcome the generic and annoying villains of the story. Robin #16 accomplishes that with how well Joshua Williamson and Roger Cruz are able to put over Damian Wayne's growth. The chemistry Damian has with Connor Hawke, Flatline, and the rest of his supporting cast really shines throughout Robin #16, showcasing why this has been such a fun series to read. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 26, 2022

    With some great characters and great art, Robin continues to be one of DC's best books, and sadly, that's simply because of interactions and the love that's shown in the continued growth of the characters. I say sadly because I do wish we got more out of the story overall since we're running short on time with this series. That being said though, I love the way that Damian Wayne is being handled in this series and I hope this Damian continues for a long time.  Read Full Review
