    AIPT - Michael Guerrero Nov 22, 2022

    Tim Drake: Robin #3 is a self-contained story driven by enigmas that would even make the Riddler scratch his chin. Throughout the story, Fitzmartin and Rossmo continue to create one of the most underrated books in DC right now. Tim's life couldn't be more interesting, and readers can jump into this arc with little prior knowledge. This continues to be a captivating series worth reading for anyone curious about what the next step in Tim Drake's life is. Read Full Review

    Tim Drake: Robin continues to explore who the character is without his family around him. Is this issue bolstered by their sort of appearance? Yes. Does it take away from Tim's story? Absolutely not. This is still an exciting exploration of a character who has been long crying out for the spotlight. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jamie Remolde Nov 23, 2022

    With the change in the tone of the storyline becoming evident, I am becoming more of a fan of this art style. I feel it is going along with the fantastical shift of the story from a mystery to a more horror theme. I look forward to the continuation of this theme. I am beginning to want to see more of Tim and Bernard and the growth of their relationship. I am looking forward to the issue where Tim reveals to Bernard who he is. It is evident that Bernard wants to be there for his boyfriend, and I think he needs to see that Tim trusts him with this very important secret in his life. I want to learn more about Bernard, who is he, and how he identifies. Read Full Review

    This series has been a blast month in and out. Tim deserves a series like this, and even more he deserves it to run a long time. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Steven Lee Sharpe Nov 24, 2022

    Tim Drake: Robin #3 is probably the issue that's best balanced. We get a nimble, acrobatic-based action sequence, a relationship conversation that also has an added layer of intrigue, and then the raising of the villain plot. In a series that has felt more teen-targeted than young adult, this is an issue that feels more focused, maybe because Drake's getting more focused himself. Read Full Review

    The relationship storyline doesn't work as well as the superhero storyline and it makes for an awkward comic. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jeremy Bernard Nov 22, 2022

    This issue has shed some of its worse features and immediately taken on a whole new set of problems. The writing is poor and too in your face, the art is inconsistent and can be very unintuitive and anything interesting is watered down like a mocktail you ordered by accident. Except for instead of having a sweet alcohol free beverage you get served this bitter disappointment Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 23, 2022

    The fact that the Clayface monsters are nearly indistinguishable from the regular characters makes this issue incredibly difficult to look at, and important story moments are buried due to lack of context. Read Full Review

    Three issues in to Tim Drake: Robin and honestly, it's not really going anywhere or improving. Read Full Review

    First off, can I just point out that the solicit summary doesn't actually match this issue. That doesn't really affect the quality all that much, but it's worth noting.

    Regardless, I'll be the first to concede that this issue has far more coherent progression between scenes than the last one. And there is clearly more of an effort being made this time when it comes to characterisation though it's still sketchy.

    The fight between Tim and the Clay Robin's is well put together, panel wise, though sadly the abundance of narration boxes does prove to be a detriment as I found it distracting from the fight scene, clutters the pages, and slows it down.

    I do get that the narration was intended to show off Tim's ana more

    Okay, who exactly is this made for, because I am a massive Tim Drake fanboy & I’m bi and I can tell you it’s certainly not made for me, and if it’s not made for me then who is it made for? It’s be one thing if this was a brand new character, but this is a character with over 30 years of history, with a clearly defined personality and character traits. Would love if this book incorporated those character traits instead of this Tumblr fanfic version.

    Alright, positives first, this is probably the best issue Fitzmartin has written so far, but there’s still a lot wrong with it. This story is actually kind of interesting, and it felt like a natural progression instead of random events happening. And the art is much better th more

    Overall, this was still a badly written issue, but dropping the pursuit of various older detective stories and allowing some semblance of a plot to form was one of the better things about this particular one. That being said, still not a great time being had here.

    Fitzmartin's grasp on characterization remains threadbare at best. She has a few lines that seem to imply she has at least some passing knowledge of the relationships between the Robins, but the details once again are muddled to fit her writing scenarios and not who these characters actually are. And these issues don't come from the fake Robins themselves but from Tim's assessments of them. Now, I'm reading this as a storyline that follows up from Dark Crisis, so to in more

    Soooo this was better than the last issue but it's still really bad. I don't know where she gets some of this stuff she says about the other robins because it's not anything like them at all and Tim still doesn't act like Tim at all in here. Like is saying he's solving crimes all its takes to make him a detective now because he's also really bad at that. And like other people have said why did Tim just follow after Bernard when people were looking for him? It's like we needed a moment for them but it was at the worst time possible and it made Tim look really really stupid. He even took a shower after freaking out about Bernard almost seeing his mask in the boat! And why does Bernard have access to the boat if Tim does his robin stuff out o more

    By this point all you need to know is this. If Meghan Fitzmartin is involved in any way, RUN!
