    Get Your Comic On - Neil Vagg Jun 27, 2023

    A note-perfect ending to the series. Tim Drake: Robin goes out on a high with a fist-bumping injection of hope and hype for the future of one of DC's best and brightest Robins. I'm going to miss this series but I'm so grateful for the last ten months of excellent storytelling. Read Full Review

    Overall, this series gets some things very rightthe emotions in this series are genuine, and it leaves Tim in a very good place. However, it also definitely feels rushed towards the end, with only a few pages to wrap things up after the main plot. Tim definitely deserved a longer run, just like the Batgirls. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 30, 2023

    The series makes its way to a smart and largely satisfying ending that completes a very strong overall plot structure by Fitzmartin. While her dialogue is also quite strong, it DOES lack a bit of personality to illuminate the darkness. Fitzmartins adventure is more than engaging enough to overcome a slight lack of personality on the part of the dialogue. And Cizmesijas art has a straightforward elegance that makes for a really appealing visual presentation of an enjoyable story. The screenwriter/comic book writer has had a warm relationship with Robin in the recent past. Its nice to see that continue. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Sean Winningham Jun 27, 2023

    Although the last issue didn't allow the story to develop fully and had some artistic choices that were questionable, it's definitely an issue that helps round out the story of Tim Drake and his love of his family. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Jun 27, 2023

    I would have liked to see more plot development and less focus on multiple character interactions. In general, the story did a decent job of emotionally connecting me to Tim Drake, and I would like to see more of his story in the future. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jamie Remolde Jun 29, 2023

    Overall this is a good issue, but I have a real problem with Batwoman's depiction here. She is a person and a fighter in her own right; she is not a plot device for showing the strength of Robin. He does not need it, and it is belittling to both characters to do it. Read Full Review

    Hopefully Tim gets another shot soon, with a set-up for success. Even if not, I'm glad we got this for the better part of a year. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Steven Lee Sharpe Jun 28, 2023

    Tim Drake: Robin #10 feels like we're watching a trailer for the issue with all the important beats to the story, but without the nuances that really qualify them. The rush to tie up loose ends was inevitable, given the sudden cancellation, so it's with a heavy heart that we wave goodbye to Tim Drake's solo title. Read Full Review

    Overall, though, Fitzmartin brings the first half of the series together with the last and ties most things up well and that's an accomplishment. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jeremy Bernard Jun 28, 2023

    An incredibly underwhelming ending with lots of visual flourish for little narrative backbone. The result is a finale that bends over backwards to make you feel satisfied by the mess of a story we've gotten here. Tim Drake: Robin has always been problematic but I do think it's a shame when writers like Fitzmartin aren't given at least the chance to make things better. I've appreciated some of her standalone stories in anthologies so I think the biggest weaknesses (apart from the pinkwashing) were always the amount of characters she tried to juggle and the length of the stories. Standalone one or two issue stories surrounding maybe three to four characters at most could allow her to really work on the many minor problems present in her writing. Score: 3/10 Read Full Review

    In what is very likely a shorter run than most were expecting, Tim Drake: Robin #10 closes the loop on what was one of the more highly anticipated Robin stories when the series premiered. Written by Meghan Fitzmartin and with art by Nikola Čižmešija, the issue delivers a riveting and satisfying conclusion to the captivating mystery that has been unfolding throughout the series. With its expertly crafted storytelling, emotional depth, and stunning artwork, this issue provides Tim Drake a worthy sendoff and sets the character up for potential future storylines.

    Fitzmartin expertly weaves together the threads of the narrative, providing answers to the lingering questions that were introduced all the way back in the debut issue, w more

    You can tell this one was cut short. I think this series was much better than what the popular opinion says, and I think a big part of why the popular opinion is what it is is because of... pretty blatant homophobia. I've argued it plenty in my reviews previous to this one. I'm not being convinced otherwise.

    As this series wraps up, this is just a review of the entire thing as I refuse to go through them all and write why each issue is poorly written.

    1) The art of the series, all aweful. Rossmo is a terrible choice for 1 issue let alone more. Their art style of totally inappropriate and that alone ruins the story. That art style should be used more for a dream-scape/drug trip like story. Maybe a Sandman style story.... hmmm...

    2) The story has no direction, no real plot, no real theme. Fitzmartin has no direction and no clue what they are writing. Robin living at the docks and gives terrible tactical advice to bystandards. Poor writing all around.

    3) No faith to the stuff that came before it. This truly appeal more

    An ending to a series that should of on paper been a very long run. DC has no one to blame but themselves for their own failings. When you can't get more than 10 issues due to low sales for an established character that had a previous run of 183 issues the problem isn't the chracter it's the writer.

    Here we are, the final issue.

    To start, yes, the ending felt rushed. However, I don't think that's something anyone on the team can be blamed for given the way this was abruptly canceled mid-arc. In that situation, you do what you can to create some sort of ending place, which means there are a lot of loose strings left unattended to. Could this have benefitted from a few extra pages at the bare minimum to achieve a better stick on the landing? Yes, but that's unlikely something this team was given.

    I do think the art suffered a little more in this issue compared to the previous ones. Not quite as up to par with what I've seen from Cizmesija, both in this series and in the Azrael series. That may also be the result of more
