    Robin & Batman #3 is a fine wrap-up to this excellent series. Lemire's writing never disappoints, and it's a shame that he won't be writing more for DC once his Swamp Thing: Green Hell series concludes. What's undeniable is that he's going out on a high note. Read Full Review

    This nice little story ends on a strong moment of character-defining action. The creative team wraps everything up neatly and underlines why the character matters and how they are unique. That's always a joy. Read Full Review

    If this happens, and the team goes on to tell stories that respect and honor the unsurpassed and legendary Nightwing origin given to us by my heroes, George Perez and Marv Wolfman, then count me in. I love comics, and series like this one are the reason why. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Jan 18, 2022

    At last, the true dynamic duo is born, as the characters must come to grip with their own traumas and their own personalities and how they differ and how they help one another. There is a lot to like about this mini-series that re-explores the early days of Robin and Batman, through a different lens, while there are other aspects that might be hard to see for such beloved characters.

    If anything, this mini-series could have gone even further in exploring Robin's early days, but is definitely a series that I cannot recommend enough. Read Full Review

    Robin & Batman #3 ends this series. It did what was almost the unexpected. Lemire and Nguyen have created a definitive Batman and Robin story, by making a Robin and Batman story. Dark vs Light. Light always prevails. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Jan 11, 2022

    The ending this series deserves, I suppose, even if it's never clear what the story is trying to say. If it's that Robin will become just like Batman, the ending contradicts that. If it's that Robin's presence gives Batman a new outlook on life, that's not evident at all, save for a single line. As I said regarding the second issue, this is not in any way a bad series, but a disappointing one. I wanted to love it. I should have loved it. When all is said and done with Robin & Batman, I didn't enjoy it, and only just appreciate it for its visual excellence. Read Full Review
