    This well-crafted features exciting action scenes that are completely transportive. The attention to detail in both fore and background does much to visually connect the reader. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Sean Winningham Apr 25, 2023

    This run of "Tim Drake: Robin" continues to get more exciting. The creative team here seems to really hit a great stride for this Boy Wonder, which is impressive since this is their first issue together. This next arc is one to keep an eye on! Read Full Review

    AIPT - Michael Guerrero Apr 25, 2023

    In the opening to the latest and final arc of Tim Drake: Robin, the story seems to find its footing as a limited series with what could have had a bright future; that said, this issue is another strong entry for all to enjoy. Read Full Review

    This issue is good and is the shot in the arm this title should have had from the jump. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 25, 2023

    Overall, this series is still strong, particularly in its lead character, but it doesn't feel like it was nearly as much about Tim as it should be. While he's going through some huge changes in this series, it often feels like the story is happening around him rather than to him. Read Full Review

    Get Your Comic On - Neil Vagg Apr 25, 2023

    The final arc of Tim Drake: Robin has a strong start. I don't want to see this book disappearing but if this is how it ends then I'm looking forward to seeing what Meghan Fitzmartin has in store. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Steven Lee Sharpe Apr 26, 2023

    Fitzmartin's been writing Tim Drake's journey since Batman: Urban Legends and in Tim Drake: Robin #8 it's great to see her ideas developing their potential. With exciting artwork and plotting, this issue has action and a genuinely intriguing mystery which is deepened by the cliffhanger ending, one that also manages to heighten the stakes. Phew.

    A new artist and a new story breathe some stronger life into this Robin comic, even as it nears an unfortunate cancellation. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jeremy Bernard Apr 26, 2023

    This issue starts off so rough and already carries with it the many failures of its past. So even though the art isn't terrible and the second half is a bit more exciting I just can't imagine people being that excited to check out the rest when this is one of the best issues of the series. It's still overly wordy and self congratulating. It's still lacking development that feels natural or characters with interesting dynamics. All in all, I just don't feel too strongly about any of it.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 28, 2023

    Tim Drake: Robin #8 is another mess of an issue in a series filled with them.  Fitzmartin once again neglects any setup, which turns everything in this book into a mystery... except the actual mystery she is trying to tell.  There is a laundry list of reasons this book failed, but the biggest one is the writing.  Hopefully, DC realizes this and doesn't blame Tim Drake.

    Best issue so far but still terrible. Read somerandomsamrta55"s review for an in depth study of why this book is so substandard.

    Okay, Nikola Cizmesija should have been the artist from the get go. This art style is much more fitting to Tim’s character and better communicates the “puzzle” element of the paneling. I finally understand what Riley Rossmo was trying to do in the first arc. While Nikola is no Belen Ortega, it does feel very reminiscent of the Urban Legends tales where her artwork shined. And I will give credit to Fitzmartin, there is actually a plot here, and I am genuinely curious to see how this will end. I was thinking maybe I finally have most good things to say…..but sadly I started thinking some more and noticed all the flaws.

    So we start on the boat where Darcy & Bernard are wondering why the hell Tim lives on a boat (I’ll get more

    So, yes, the art is better, and the plot proved a little more linear, with fewer distractions, but the writing still leaves a whole hell of a lot to be desired. Fitzmartin continues to struggle with understanding who Tim is, with showing genuine character interactions, and the continued failures here render me completely underwhelmed with this new arc. I still don't feel much for the characters, even with all the angst we got here and that cliffhanger we ended on. Honestly, it's a tired plot with the whole amnesiac "killer" sporting blood they can't explain on their body. The only remotely interesting thing about it was her falling from the sky (and somehow not breaking or fracturing a single thing or receiving a concussion or any other sor more
