To catch a criminal mastermind, Tim will have to...steal a diamond? Oh no, what's gotten into you, Tim? It's Tim Drake like you've never seen him! Plus: a murder most foul at the library, the Gotham Marina is in danger, and Bernard isn't answering Tim's calls!

    I am really enjoying this story and I find that there is much to unpack in the dialogue. Not only is Tim Drake experiencing the typical adventures of a masked hero, he is also dealing with essentially "growing into his purpose. Read Full Review

    I don't find the plot all that compelling, as we've seen plenty of stories that involve the hero being framed. However, what Fitzmartin gets right is the various characters and relationships that Tim has weaving in and out of the book. Read Full Review

    Tim Drake: Robin #2 lures in readers with a distinct and vivid look, then hits them with a wonderfully constructed detective story. Read Full Review

    Get Your Comic On - Neil Vagg Oct 25, 2022

    With a masterfully written second issue Tim Drake: Robin has cemented itself as a serious contender for readers' attention. Fitzmartin isn't playing around when it comes to putting Drake front and centre in the spotlight. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Steven Lee Sharpe Oct 25, 2022

    Tim Drake: Robin #2 has a lot of youthful energy to it, but sometimes it feels a little too young. Tim's in danger of coming across as someone new to the superhero role. However, the artwork's charming, the momentum of the plot is growing and it ends on a page that begs to be followed up on. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 29, 2022

    I like the overall thrust of the series and the storytelling, including Tim's character. But there are a lot of moving pieces in this issue, and not all of them move in a way I like. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jamie Remolde Oct 26, 2022

    I am falling out of the story, and I am focusing more on the design of the characters. The design is not helping me stay in the story but is creating a sensation that I do not care about. I am growing more and more disappointed in the direction of this story, and I am so hoping for an improvement. Read Full Review

    While Tim Drake: Robin #2 is a marked improvement over the first issue, it is still something of a mess. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 25, 2022

    While I continue to love Tim Drake, I also continue to hate this series. My favorite Robin deserves better art and stories while being featured and nothing about this book is doing this hero any favors. We've got a convoluted mess to read and look at throughout this book and I can only hope that these are growing pains that will eventually work themselves out as the series progresses because if things keep up the way they are this book is doomed to end real quick.

    Batman-News - Jeremy Bernard Oct 26, 2022

    I get why people are disappointed. I'm disappointed. Even if I ignore the history of Tim Drake this comic is still just an inconsistent reference making machine and manages to grind everyone's gears. I want this story to develop, to find its own footing, to tap into its source material more rather than the source material of detective stories in general. When this series manages to do that, and those who not only stomach Rossmo's style but actually enjoy it stick around, then I feel like this series will be grand. But boy does it have a lot to make up for Read Full Review

    So I’ll start by saying this is much better than the previous issue…that being said, I still can’t say it’s all that good. The more I look into it the more issues I find with it. This is without a doubt the worst characterization Tim has ever had, since the New 52 altered his origin. Take this quote for instance:
    “There are only a few places I belong. With Bernard. On the boat. And solving mysteries”

    None of that makes any damn sense! He belongs with the Batfamily, because it’s his family! He has so many people to turn to in the Batfamily, or Young Justice, or the superhero community in general. If he’s Robin, then belongs with Batman, because that’s what Robin is supposed to be; if you want him away from more

    I don't want to say the art is bad, it's just not for me and I don't think it really works for this type of book. The writing however is another story.

    I’m still not enjoying this. The montage thing was supposed to be a fun thing I guess but I found it really confusing because everything else is all over the place with the action and Tim’s thoughts. It made things seem more scattered instead of pulling it together. He also seems to contradict himself. Saying or thinking one thing then thinking something completely else a page or two later. And the whole detective story this time felt pointless. Like we had the whole hologram thing but then nothing here for the *murder mystery*. There’s like too much going on but the things actually being said don’t make any sense. It feels like fitzmartin’s interviews where she says a whole lot of nothing but damn were some words said.

    Where do I even begin?

    Challenge for Fitzmartin: stop taking the plots of other detective comics and making it seem like you did anything with them. This is just lazy writing. The fact that I knew what story she would use next based on the preview talk of a stolen diamond and framing someone, given her previous history with other old detective stories, made this as lame as the previous issue. Nothing of value again was added to the use of this older story, and instead of seeming "cute" of the villain (because it sure isn't "smart"), it plays off as something amateur. It doesn't even come off as a villain teasing Tim, but yet again reads as someone who thinks she is writing something smarter than she really is, and in the process more

    Unreadable. The awful Rossmo stick drawings continue.
