    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Jul 27, 2021

    Robin #4 keeps enriching my love for this series, all the combatants and hungry for answers about Lady Swan, Lazarus Island, the League of Lazarus, and League of Assassins backstory, Damian's progress, and how this tournament will play out once it truly begins. I expect lots of blood, gore, and sinister revelations. But I'm here for the growing love for the young hero Damian Wayne, and no previous book really succeeded in getting me to like him. Until this one. Robin creative team, keep showing us whatcha got! Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Jul 27, 2021

    Corona uses detailed drawings that feature an emphasis on character expression. This is highlighted by color work featuring bold tones that change with the time of day and location. Overall, I found this visually appealing issue to be quite engaging and transportive. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Franco Giacomarra Jul 27, 2021

    Robin #4 is the latest fantastic entry in a series that has checked all the boxes of what a modern superhero solo book should be. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 27, 2021

    It's surprising to have a breather issue only four issues in, but its take on Damian is so good that it works. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Jul 30, 2021

    Robin doesn't miss a single step as the series takes a small deviation from the overall tournament to continue its wonderful thread of Damian Wayne's overall development and growth. The wealth of color, darkness, fun, brutality, and meaningful character moments is still at the forefront of this story in every single facet. Fans have wanted another Damian exploring solo series for years, and this team is more than delivering. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - soycornholio Jul 30, 2021

    Final Thoughts:Joshua Williamsons Robin #4 takes a quick detour on dropping a few threads for another storyline while setting up the next issue. With everyone having died at least once, the true fatalities (see what I did there) can begin! I would recommend this issue for anyone who loves Damian, Mortal Kombat, or even Ras Al Ghul. This issue contains all of that along with a special cameo of Damians other family. Overall, this was a great issue and Williamson continues to knock it out of the park with Gothams Sweet Potato Pie!

    Crossovers with manga and double crosses on the island develop narrative intrigue in multiple senses as the tournament prepares to begin. Even a change in art as Jorge Corona takes over for issue #4 doesn't prove to be much of a distraction in a slower issue with few fights. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jul 27, 2021

    The cliffhanger really sets up an intriguing change up just as Williamson established the base foundation. Seeing how Damian reacts should be very interesting. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Donald Townsend Jul 28, 2021

    This book continues to come on strong on many levels while still be fun and filled with humor and action. The artwork pairs wonderfully with the storytelling, and always leaves me thinking about it long after I've put it down. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Jul 29, 2021

    One wishes Damian had just as much attitude here as the art does. Perhaps we are just seeing a more mature depiction of the character, but it's also less enjoyable. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Jul 27, 2021

    I'm still in love with this series. While this issue had a few moments I am kind of hesitant about, and a Ra's al Ghul who doesn't quite seem in character, it is a lot of fun to read. Damian having a training day with his grandfather is something I didn't expect to play out quite like it did, but those surprises can be good. Plus, Goliath is back, and that lovable big red bat-dragon is enough to make any issue shine. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 27, 2021

    While I'm still all about Damian Wayne making his own destiny and wanting to learn about the League of Lazarus as his first stop on that road to destiny, this issue felt odd in that it stopped the momentum and felt like it needed to cool down things before they ever heat up. We've got a decent cliffhanger though and some decent art but I ultimately wanted more out of this issue. Read Full Review
