It’s a beach party from hell! Robin’s mission to get to the heart of the League of Lazarus's inner workings has left him once again locked in combat with his fellow fighters, but never did Damian Wayne think it would lead to a beach-blanket cookout. What’s more dangerous than a life-or-death struggle for the all-or-nothing prize of immortality? Well, for Damian, it’s acting like a normal teenager for five minutes. And don’t miss the surprise confrontation with Damian’s number 1 competition, a mysterious fighter trained by the League of Shadows!

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Jun 22, 2021

    Robin's personal development is wonderful to behold in its baby steps. I can't wait to see more. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - soycornholio Jun 23, 2021

    Robin #3 by Joshua Williamson is my favorite issue of the series thus far. My ONLY complaint is that I read it within 10 minutes! We need more pages! I would have had loved to see Willamson write this series, under the DC Black Label. The entire premise of DCs Fight Club to Damian Wayne being the main character would be brilliant under that line. If you are on the edge about diving into Robin, it is not too late to do so. With amazing artwork, great character dialogue, and amazing world-building, this just may be the start of some of the best character development of Gothams Lil sweet potato pie! Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jun 22, 2021

    Hands down the best new book to come out of DC's main line in a while and the best teen-oriented title in years, Robin has given fans of Damian Wayne exactly what they've been asking for years. And all it took was getting him out of Gotham and the Teen Titans. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Jun 24, 2021

    Robin deftly manages to juggle the overall plotline while leaving plenty of room for fun, emotional, and very painful character development and moments that make each issue better and better. All of this is brought to life with bold energetic artwork that fully sells the fun but brutally serious tone that this book balances perfectly. This is truly the Damian Wayne book his fans have been waiting for. Read Full Review

    I would also like to put in a formal petition to get Damian a best Island friend. There are only two correct answers to this. Yes… or you'll just have to wait till Robin #4. Read Full Review

    Robin continues to be among DC's best ongoing series, with issue #3 providing some of the most exciting developments yet -- and not just because of an outstanding cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Jun 22, 2021

    Ravager brings Robin to a party. While he begins to make friends, he also learns how Batman is viewed outside of his social circle. Later, he meets with Connor Hawke and the two have an interesting conversation. Afterwards, they are interrupted by and unexpected group, and a deadly confrontation occurs. Then, someone surprising comes to Robins aid.The Story: Williamson adds another compelling chapter to this series. Although I am excited to find out what the League of Shadows has planned for its contestants, I am most interested in Damians evolution. Until this point, he has had a very narrow perspective on humanity, and his place in the world. Its nice to see Damian being challenged on everything he believes. Hopefully, this series will make him a more relatable and humble character. The artwork in this issue is eye-catching. The bold colors and detailed drawings perfectly capture the storys tone. I was completely engaged throughout the episode. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Jun 22, 2021

    Robin is still going strong. It's not pulling its punches either emotionally or physically and I'm loving it. The pacing here is done in such a way that I can easily lose myself in an issue, and I feel like Williamson is really building a strong foundation of character, plot, and myth into the narrative. I can't wait to see how things continue to develop next month. Robin's been consistently my favorite book each month, and I don't really see that changing in the future. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jun 22, 2021

    Robin continues to be a fun book that attempts to peel away the layers of jerkiness from Damian Wayne and as we continue to do so we see some of the vulnerabilities of our main character and some of the problems in his life that have caused him to act out, but thankfully, with all that going on we also just get to see him be a kid. The art is great in this book and I love the bits of progression we get here in not only Damian Wayne but other characters as well. Read Full Review

    The careful attention to foundations, introductions, and style across the first 3 issues of Robin make it clear this is a story with a lot of care and attention being applied, which makes the already high stakes seem all the greater. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jun 24, 2021

    Robin #3 is an absolute blast. The manga influences to the fighting tournament to the death that Damian Wayne has entered himself in is fun to watch develop. Rose Wilson and Connor Hawke strong presence in this issue adds to how Robin is a can't miss series. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jun 26, 2021

    I may not be connecting with this comic personally, but it is nonetheless a good direction to take Damian Wayne and a fun story to put him through. The final page cliffhanger is full of potential. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Donald Townsend Jun 23, 2021

    The underlying narrative I keep getting from this story so far is a young boy out to make a name for himself. He is not only living in the shadow of his father, but Damian Wayne also seems to seek growing out of the shadow of the moniker he's still attached to as Robin. That persona also has a weight attached to it. Read Full Review
