It’s time for a rematch! Robin and Connor Hawke face off for round two in their winner-take-all battle for League of Lazarus supremacy, but with the tournament nearing its end, what surprises does Mother Soul have up her sleeve? I hope it doesn’t involve that massive, hellish pit and the immortal monster lying within it-aw beans, it’s about that, isn’t it?!

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Nov 23, 2021

    I didn't think Robin's journey could be so revealing, so maturing for the character by placing him in a story with more combat than dialogue. But with this issue especially, Robin has blossomed into an independent, self-motivated hero who has learned from others and his own mistakes. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Nov 23, 2021

    The illustrations in this chapter feature detailed drawings with an emphasis on character expression and form. The color palette and bold designs perfectly match the tone of the story. And I found that these elements enhanced the intensity of the perfectly executed action-oriented panels. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Nov 23, 2021

    If you dig kung-fu movies and action, you'll love Robin #8. This book is nearly all action, in fact, which can make it a quick read and lighter on the story, but it makes up for that with a cliffhanger that'll have you begging for more. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 23, 2021

    The real story is beginning finally and while I'm happy that the tournament is over, the final bit to it here was actually kind of interesting in pitting Connor Hawke versus our Boy Wonder and showing us who the top bird in the martial arts field is. That being said though, the fight lasted a long time and when we finally get to the really interesting parts of the book it feels like it ends just as soon as it begins.  Read Full Review
