    Lee Bermejo continues to "Wow" us with his We Are Robin team as shit gets real for these heroes when they're confronted by their polar opposite contemporaries.  This story is so real and disturbing at times that it's hard to imagine that our heroes are only teenagers.......... but after something like this, I think they're about to grow up real quick.  With great art throughout, We Are Robin continues to be one of the best titles that DC is putting out right now.

    It would be so easy for a comic with a cast of this size to fall down when it came to making you care. There are so many characters, and yet the creative team is able to strike an amazing balance of development and tension. Despite the fact that this issue is all contemplation, discussion and setup, the characters are never static. They are constantly working, moving, living. This helps to create an artistically interesting read, adding to the subtext, while driving it deeper and forward all at once. The loss of the Robin team with Rebirth would be a horrible fate. Yet, if the build up in this issue is any indication, they will be going out making a strong and convicting statement about modern culture. Read Full Review

    One of the best Robin stories in a long time. It capture youth culture exceptionally well. Read Full Review

    Bermejo excels at examining real world problems through a slight filter of heightened reality. If you're sick of over the top epics and would like to read a more down to earth story featuring realistic concerns that also includes genuine character development, then this is a story for you.

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Mar 29, 2016

    We Are Robin is what Young Justice and Teen Titans books used to be in DC Comics. It's a new era for teen heroes, and this season has modernized that and made it work for the streets of Gotham City. And the final page of this is so real, even in fiction. Read Full Review

    Slackjaw Punks - Duff Mar 23, 2016

    Writer/artist Lee Bermejo script is heavy. It touches on a lot of the alienation troubling kids today (I'm old) especially in urban settings. The characters are flawed and real. Art by Jorge Corona is impressive as well. We Are Robin is a welcome and very urban, modern entry into the Bat-verse that is perfect for millennials. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Mar 23, 2016

    We Are Robin #10 was a very enjoyable issue overall. While some of the story is disappointing, the strong characterization for most of the cast makes up for it, along with stronger storytelling and artwork. While the end is on the horizon, I can't stress enough how much fun of a ride We Are Robin has been. Here's hoping it goes out with a bang. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Mar 23, 2016

    While the series has had its ups and downs thus far, there's no denying that Bermejo has done a truly stellar job of opening up this truly intriguing corner of the DC Universe, and that the premise of the series – a motley crew of disillusioned, highly motivated youngsters wanting to keep up the good work of the now-absent Batman – is absolute gold. A solid issue then, filled with character rather than storyline development, and an absolute belter of a cliffhanger. Definitely a series worth checking out if you haven't done so already.

    Things get real by the end of We Are Robin #10. The kind of plot and storytelling you come to expect from a street-level book like this. It's anything goes at this point when Duke, Riko, Dre and the rest will have to choose now whether they have any future as heroes again. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Mar 24, 2016

    All that being said, Bermejo has given us an issue with some particular real scenes featuring gun violence and mass chaos which goes back to him wanting to make something grittier in Gotham. The set up for next month is there and I am looking forward to seeing ALL the Robins come together. Read Full Review

    I get what's happening here: the threat of the Jokerz is going to be what brings the Robins together again in triumphant glory. But it's been several issues now and nothing has changed. Only at the very end of this issue does Smiley finally make his move, and that gives me hope. Maybe Bermejo will do something with school shootings or violence in the schools. I hope he has a deeper point to make, I really do. Read Full Review

    What's scary is there are youths who believe in what Smiley is preaching. Just as the We Are Robin group is splintered, the Jokerz are coming together. By the end of We Are Robin #10 Smiley has made a very public move. Will Duke Thomas and the rest of the Robins reunite to save lives and take the Jokerz down? Issue 11 should bring us answers.
