    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Dec 1, 2021

    This good-looking issue uses a detailed and modern styling with bold color work. The illustrations heavily features expression and form allowing the reader to visually connect with the character's emotions and activity. I found myself completely immersed in the world of the tale.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 30, 2021

    While getting background on characters months after the fact in an Annual feels weird, it was definitely appreciated here because I'm a fan of so many of the supporting cast of Robin that I'm all about seeing more of them here, especially Flatline. Some of the others, who seem to be here for filler..... not so much, but this is a great-looking book that gives us some much-needed background on some great characters. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Nov 30, 2021

    Overall Robin 2021 Annual #1 is not a must-read to understand the story in Robin, but it is an entertaining one-shot that adds an interesting backstory and context for the main players in the tournament. If you dig origin stories, don't pass on Robin 2021 Annual #1. Read Full Review

    Robin 2021 Annual primarily serves to be intriguing as it provides readers with details that couldn't quite make the cut in Robin's limited page count. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Donald Townsend Nov 30, 2021

    Overall, this issue was a pretty decent tie-in to the current story which, while not necessary to understand the arc, still serves as a nice though small companion to the world in which Damian Wayne operates. Read Full Review
