    Dark Knight News - Fay Clark Oct 1, 2021

    The more I read, the more I'm convinced that this series is giving us one of the very best Damian Wayne stories ever… and there's still so much left to find out! The best part is that we're never left unsatisfied, as Williamson's slowly letting things slip. The series somehow feels super fast and action-packed while also having a slow burn plot-line. You always want to keep coming back to read more, because the team is just that good! I will never miss an issue of this run! Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Sep 28, 2021

    Will I ever tire of saying you should read this book? Probably not. You should read this book. It's consistently shown solid pacing, wonderful character work, amazing art, and balances fun and plot in a way that keeps me coming back for more every month. Every issue you can really feel how much the creative team themselves has enjoyed working on this book, and it makes reading it all the better. All of that is true for this issue. Williamson does an excellent job balancing plot, giving us character backstory, and packing the book full of action. Read Full Review

    Robin #6 by Joshua Williamson is not a bad issue whatsoever. We are finally witnessing the Tekken-style combat tournament that originally hooked us in the beginning. The art is top-notch while the advertisements are distracting. Overall, I would recommend reading this issue. WE are FINALLY at the tournament and things are just starting to heat up!

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 29, 2021

    The Lazarus Tournament has officially begun and there is no time wasted with showcasing the fighters in Robin #6. Joshua Williamson and Gleb Melnikov do a great job working together to put over the stakes of the tournament through all the various fights. In the middle of all the fighting we got a lot of great character work for Robin, Ravager, Connor Hawke, Flatline, and Respawn. There really is nothing more that can be asked for except wanting the next issue immediately. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 28, 2021

    The tournament has started and...... Well, it's a pretty bland/boring bit to this book that is more concerned with recapping what we've been doing than really showing us something cool or even making sure we know the characters participating in the deathmatch. That being said, the book looks great and the core characters that we have are fun together and really boost this book with some heart that I look forward to getting more of. Read Full Review
