    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Dec 27, 2022

    This has been a fun series from the start, putting Tim Drake in new and often unpredictable situations as he takes a step into adulthood for the first time. One of the best parts about the series has been the new settingthe Gotham Marina, where Tim has traded his mansion upbringing for a houseboat and a taste of independence. Read Full Review

    The premiere arc of Tim Drake: Robin takes a huge step towards its finale with a deeply personal twist for Tim. A villainous reveal, a Batgirls cameo and a coalescing of the clues makes issue #4 a festive treat for fans. Read Full Review

    I am interested in what happens, but the art style makes it increasingly difficult to care. I am not getting used to the art, and it is starting to get on my nerves as I continue to read this story. Read Full Review

    It may sound contradictory, but while the story's developing at a pleasing pace, there's a rushed feel to its execution meaning that some moments are either a little muddled or don't quite ring true. Given the amount of character and story drama going on, it strangely gives Tim Drake: Robin #4 a lightweight feel, although the series is still managing to maintain its charming Young Adult tone.

    I don't want to make my reviews too long but god I have so much more to say. From the comments I didn't bring up to the amazing colors and decent lettering, this issue has my mind racing! I know a lot of people are invested in this story, and there's some serious potential buried deep beneath layers of frivolous story beats and exposition dumps. So while I see some improvements in terms of writing it has a long way to go before it catches up to the insane progress that the art has made. Read Full Review

    Riley Rossmo's art just does not work for this title at all to the point of making the whole title nearly unreadable in how everyone seems juvenile in what should be a more mature tale. Read Full Review

    (*In old-timey announcer guy voice*)
    Previously on “Thanks I hate it” Starring Timblr & Bernard as the “Manic Pixie Femboy”. Timblr acted so out of character, after taking down a squad of fake Robins. But Bernard is now Tim’s boyfriend so it makes it all better. Will SmartA55 be able to make it through this issue with all his hair attached to his head?

    (We now return to your regularly scheduled smarminess)

    Alright let's get all the usual complaints out of the way:

    *Tim looks like Sid from Toy Story
    *Ber-Nard, Ber-Nard, Dude looks like a lady!
    *Tim is acting incredibly OOC & is acting like an idiot
    *Narration boxes, over-narrating everything
    *Bernard dressed up in a ridiculo more

    Let me start by saying, having seen more comments about the matter, that Rossmo's art isn't the main issue here for me. While I do continue to agree that this style wasn't the best fit for a Tim Drake book, it's still a style that has its place in the industry. Part of the issue with the art, though, is that it gives us one sense of a story while the actual story itself provides another, and I feel that this disconnect remains. Again it begs the question — who is the target audience for this story? Is this supposed to be a YA-centric tale? A continuation of the Tim Drake we knew from before? If there is a specific audience in mind, then marketing has failed abysmally on this point (but I imagine they were hoping to capture that nostalgia more

    Was Tim always this bad at being a detective? I thought we were done with the weird ghost things that I guess aren’t very ghostly anymore. None of this is making sense. And why hasn’t tim even tried to figure out how these things are being made? I thought he was a genius detective. And why does the bad guy look like some rejected joker? Might as well give Tim the D-list prince of crime because this kid can’t solve his way out of paper bag. This story is so bad.

    Art=trash, characters=trash, dialogue=trash Don't spend your money or time on this title. I love Tim Drake but right now I'm hoping the villain wins and burns the marina into the ocean along with Tim, Bernard, and all the rest of the idiots living there.
