    To readRobin: Son of Batmanis to enjoy a story assembled with the habits of a visual artist. Writer Patrick Gleason, known primarily to this point for his drawing, has been one of the most pleasant surprises of the last year. His mastery of character, particularly the character of Damian Wayne, has proven sure and refreshing. His themes have been interesting, his plots intricate and well-designed. Still, one definitely sees patterns of visual thought in the construction of his stories. He proceeds image to image. The story ofRobin: Son of Batman #6is framed by captivity and freedom: the literal captivity and freedom of Goliath the dragon bat; the metaphorical, because moral, captivity and freedom of Damian as he overcomes guilt and self-loathing.

    The Batman Universe - Ryan Blair Nov 26, 2015

    All in all I am looking forward to what Gleason is bringing to the title and believe he has an extremely firm grasp on Damian as a character. Im really excited to see what Robin War has in store for the Boy Wonder and I also ponder whether we have seen the last of the Year of Blood…maybe we will continue to get more flashbacks as to what transpired during those final months?

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Dec 2, 2015

    This is a smartly written and carefully paced book. Since it's something I don't typically read and a character for whom I don't have much enthusiasm, I was more than somewhat pleasantly surprised to find myself engaged and even moved by the action and dialogue. I don't hate Damian, but I do struggle with his cockiness (he's unworthy of the Bat, I often think). Here we get to see another side of him. He's still got a long way to go, but it's a very nice start. He's in wonderful hands with Gleason for the time being. Read Full Review

    This issue was fantastic overall, but it seriously irks me when problems are raised but not resolved, which has been a recurring problem with this series. That hurt this issues score, but on its own, I really enjoyed this book. You would have to read the other issues to feel the full impact of this issue, though. It had some problems, but all in all, a pretty great issue. Read Full Review
