    In the final chapter of the first arc, Tim Drake: Robin remains one of the best books being published today, delivering a perfect mystery story through and through. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is the first real focus Tim has gotten in years outside the orbit of the larger Bat-family, and while the first arc wasn't perfect, it shows a lot of potential for something great. Read Full Review

    Get Your Comic On - Neil Vagg Feb 28, 2023

    The finale to the first arc of Tim Drake: Robin doesn't disappoint. It's high stakes, emotional action which really tests the limits of the titular character. Fitzmartin ties up loose ends with all the gusto we've come to expect, leaving plenty of intrigue for what comes next. Read Full Review

    Although the weakest aspect of this issue for me was the art, overall this was a fine story. I think this really connects with teenagers and young adults really well with the story and art. It's not one I am rushing to get off the shelves right away but am definitely looking forward to reading when its available on DC Infinite. Read Full Review

    While the ingredients have been set up for an engaging world around him, for much of the time it felt as if Tim wasn't up to the task, emotionally or intellectually. However, while I feel that his hesitancy and uncertainty over his new life has been overplayed, it's nice to see him end the arc with more assurance and confidence. Read Full Review

    This comicboth the issue and the overall titlewould be a thousand time better if the art wasn't horrible. I know that's harsh, but the art is really bad and it's extremely jarring. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jeremy Bernard Feb 28, 2023

    If only Fitzmartin was able to focus! Moriarty's big fight ended up looking so cool but I really don't care about how we ended up here and I don't know anyone that's supposedly being saved by Tim. Maybe if this was cut short, turned into a three issue adventure and we honed in on Bernard, Moriarty and Tim then this could've been something but there's too much getting skipped in favor of cramming in a million little pieces. If this was a three issue story I wonder if the art would have stayed this good throughout and it's a shame that this is one of the few issues where I am more than happy to linger on every single panel and page.

    This series has gotten a ton of hate from loads and loads of people. I'll be honest, I don't get it. Is this series stellar? A classic in the making? No, I don't think so. Is it one of the worst comics being published right now? Absolutely not. It's actually solid. I think a lot of the hate does come from the homophobic/anti-LGBT crowd. That's just an unfortunate reality when it comes to any series that hosts an openly LGBT lead. The reviews under these issues, some of which are novels, don't really convince me of their points. Most of them are written as though the person writing them decided to bash their head in with a hammer before reading the issue. They just essentialize and do their very best to mischaracterize and avoid context, bec more

    I still hold to the idea that Fitzmartin never had any intention of honoring the concept and legacy of Tim Drake but instead seems to have taken this as her cue to write whatever fantasy ideas she has of him. This isn't about "trying to live up to the images of other people." When given a character like this, it's about making them the best version of who you can while still honoring the roots set down. You may not follow every single branch that stemmed from their initial creation, but there still remains that steady trunk of who they are as a character, and she seems intent on cutting that down as well.

    The most glaring problem with this issue, as many others have already pointed out, is the idea that Tim wanted to be Batman. more

    Worst book DC has put out in the last decade. Tim gets his own knock off version of clay face here but that's about it. I read this book just to dump on it (because it truly deserves it) but I do hope it will get readable one day. Tim is my favorite Robin after all.
