    Listen, you gotta get this book as a trade when it comes out. There's no denying this shit. I really hope we see these characters in the Batman Family Universe again. We really got to because this creative team did so well building all these characters up that for them to not pop up in Batgirl or anywhere else would be a shame. Rebirth better have these trill ass heroes too. That's all I know. Read Full Review

    We Are Robin #12 has been perfect from start to finish. I do have to admit that I didn't read much of the tie-in to Robin Wars because of feelings towards crossovers, but that aside you couldn't have asked for a more genuine story told about what it means to be a hero in a world where regular people sometimes have to take a stand for what they believe is right and just.

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer May 26, 2016

    Regarding this issue as an ending to the series, I was worried that the creative team would not end the series on a good note but they certainly did. The final shot of them flying down trying to make their city a better place is what the series has all been about at its core so it was nice to see that continue here at the end. The series itself has had a few rough moments and some problems but I have enjoyed the ride overall. It has been a nice break from all the major superhero stories. It will be nice to see how these characters fit into the larger TBU from here on out after Rebirth. Obviously Duke will make appearances, but I still felt that some of the other Robins had more interesting storylines that deserve to get fleshed out in the future. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand May 27, 2016

    The finale of “We are Robin” goes deep instead of going big. It gives the reader an opportunity to consider the world from an alternate perspective and provides good-old moral story telling at its finest. In all, it's been a pleasure reading this series, and I wish Bermejo and Corona the best of luck in their future endeavors. Au revoir. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea May 25, 2016

    We end our We Are Robins book with a bit of a low key issue, but it really seems fitting because while it's not action packed in an over the top kind of way, it maintains the feel of the characters and the type of scenarios that they should find themselves in and because of this, this issue works really well.  I'm really going to miss this book, but at least I can take some solace in that Duke will show up in not only Batman, but All-Star Batman as well.  I just hope the rest of our Robins get some panel play in Rebirth and hopefully we get to see more of Lee Bermejo and Jorge Corona because these two creators seriously sold me on a couple of kids becoming more than they were.
