    After a densely plotted first arc that put Tim in the middle of a new mystery centering around the Gotham marina, Fitzmartin is able to pull back and give us a character-focused issue that puts Tim and Bernard at the centerjust in time for the series to be canceled with the end of its second arc!

    The Batman Universe - Jamie Remolde Apr 5, 2023

    This is a wonderful story that has the requisite action of a superhero comic book, but the focus is on one of the supporting characters. This story opens the book on Bernard Dowd, what he knows, feels, and thinks. It also is a positive depiction of gay relationship between two men. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Steven Lee Sharpe Mar 28, 2023

    Tim Drake: Robin #7 deals with the astute recognition that, as someone who is important to Robin's storyline Bernard Dowd needs fleshing out. Thankfully Tim is still coming across as assertive and capable. However, while this series has personality, it's yet to find its groove and suffers from some questionable moments in storytelling.

    We've made it to the next part in Tim's story. This time Bernard's narration and background development isn't enough to make this any better for fans of Tim Drake and still has a lot of randomness in both the visual and story departments. I think the issues are quite minor when you compare it to the dumpster fire that was the previous arc so maybe this might feel like a breath of fresh air to some readers?Score: 5/10 Read Full Review

    While one can appreciate that the issue finally takes the time to flesh out Bernard, it's done very awkwardly. Read Full Review

    Honestly, the people who rag so hard on this book either haven't read many comics, or just hate gay people. Just saying it like it is, as they're too cowardly to do themselves.

    Comic readers these days are such snowflakes being offended by mediocre books

    This issue proves that ANYBODY can become a comic book writer so long as they meet certain "criteria." It's an absolute mess of a "story" with truly incomprehensible plot points. I'm starting to think Fitzmartin is actually trolling everyone. It has to be a joke, right?

    Why read it then? Because like Morpheus told Neo: "You have to see it for yourself!"

    1. I mean the line about Bernard majoring in physics & biology to be a CHEF. Has to be a joke.

    2. Tim thinking Bernard doesn't know he's Robin when he has changed in front of him in the last arc.

    3. The "pee" line from Bernard and then his father demanding he apologize to his mother for it. For saying "pee"? Seriously?

    4. Both Tim & Bern more

    There is so much wrong with this issue from Bernard being a Physics-Biology-Chef, to the lack of any sort of setups to what is going on with Firefly and Phobia to the fact that it appears that Bernard and Tim just walk away from a burning restaurant with people still inside, including Bernard's parents. Fitzmartin just makes things happen because they suddenly need to happen and ruins what could have been a cute date night with Tim and Bernard.

    The first three critics are obviously lying.I can't wait for the wokeness to get out of our classic comics.Stop ruining our characters and get back to basic great stories without the woke BS

    I realize this was supposed to be some sort of feel-good backstory for these two boys. We got to see more of Bernard and where he comes from. We got to see a cute little date scene despite the villainy hijinks. But when you look back as to how we got here, there's so little foundation that it still felt really flat to me. It's been incredibly frustrating to read, to see the lack of work put into this story, and yet to have these moments that are supposed to draw you in as a reader and the expectation that we are to give accolades for it. We're sitting before a magician, not knowing how the trick works, but tada! look and be amazed at what just happened. And that works for a magic show because we like the wonder, we like the element of the more

    WTF was this? Yes, Bernard gets fleshed out in this issue but it's just standard garbage. He's gay, his parents disapprove, he's the better person out of the three. Yawn. And the writing is sooooo bad. Bernard's not supposed to know Tim is Robin but Tim is in the bedroom of their tiny boat home changing from his costume to his suit while Bernard is telling him they're late. How did he not see Tim get to the bedroom? Bernard is majoring in physics and biology (has to be amazing of course) but he's going to be a chef? Bernard yells across the restaurant about peeing?! Jesus. The next scene Firefly is burning the place up for no reason other than they won't give him a table (and it said he'd been doing this for a while now and no sec more
