    Good book! A great start with decent pacing and a cool underlying mystery building on various angles. I like the team so far and really excited to see where this goes and what it brings to the “Young Gotham” line of books which is becoming rather strong. Read Full Review

    After two issues, "We Are Robin" has already proved itself worthy to be mentioned alongside the other great books coming out of the Bat-editorial offices. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Harry Roachford Jul 22, 2015

    This series has a lot of potential to be incredible. The art style is mostly good and so is the writing, but they need to give some focus to more than just Duke. He's already the most developed character in the book and that was before the series even started. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 22, 2015

    While I was waiting for something to happen in this book that would tell me that the love I had for the first issue was simply a fluke, by the end I found myself still completely in love with this title and will continue to say that this is probably the best new book that came out in June.  I love the portrayal of the street Robins and I love the art that depicts the story....... Pretty much, I'm in love.  Another great issue that moves the story along, while setting up clues to to who the mysterious person behind "The Nest" is.  Do yourself a favor this week and pick up this issue and the first one if you happened to miss it.

    Between the huge cast, a mysterious new enemy, and a whole new perspective on Gotham, We Are…Robin! started off at a full run–but seems to be panting trying to get up this first narrative hill. Still, Duke remains an empathetic beacon in all the mess, and with the premise completely introduced, I cross my fingers for some quality character time in issue three. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Jul 22, 2015

    We Are Robin #2 is a good lookin' comic with an intriguing story. I'm already hooked by the mysterious circumstances as to how these kids are coming together to deliver some good ol' fashioned vigilante justice to some loser criminals. Bermejo writes these kids well, and Corona gives this book some pizazz with the visuals. The artwork in the backup by Khary Randolph is solid as well and I will definitely be back for issue #3.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jul 25, 2015

    My favorite new DC comic is still going strong in its second issue. We Are Robin hasn't achieved the creative heights of the new Batgirl, but it's solid storytelling with a very interesting premise. That's good enough for me! Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Jul 22, 2015

    The concept of a book that sits somewhere between The Movement and Oliver Twist's street urchins is an exciting one, and those who may have dismissed the slower pace of the first issue should be encouraged to return and give this series a second chance. Without falling into the trap of a labored exposition, Bermejo has put all of the pieces on the board, and now we simply get to sit back and watch it unfold. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ryan Blair Jul 23, 2015

    As for the ending, I like that we see Duke unite with the other Robins…although I would really like to get a bit more of an intro for these characters…havent even got half of their names down yet. So hopefully we get a bit of a meet and greet next month. As for the big bad, Im interested to see whether this is going to turn out to be someone we know, or a brand new villain to add to the Rogues Gallery. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jul 23, 2015

    Writer Lee Bermejo builds off of his promising debut, using issue #2 to further explore the growing band of R-emblazoned scrappers looking to take back their streets. The end result has its fair share of intrigue, from the group's mysterious benefactor to their equally mysterious foil, but it also remains a bit loose in terms of pacing. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jul 22, 2015

    "We Are Robin" #2 brings action, excitement and plenty of mystery, serving as yet another nice addition to the Bat-catalogue (Batalogue?) despite Duke Thomas being the most Bat-familiar member of this series' growing cast. The team's numbers are growing and their mission is congealing under the supervision of Bermejo, Corona, Randolph, Mulvihill, Lopez and Fletcher. Read Full Review

    It's an interesting idea, the many Robins at once. The mysterious leader, if done well and not left dragging too long, could be a good mystery. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Jul 27, 2015

    After a lukewarm introduction last month, We Are Robin is starting to find its footing. The characters feel more natural and the plot has a hook that it lacked previously. The art remains a strong point and Bermejo has revealed more than one wrinkle with the potential to bring readers back next month. We Are Robin will have to live up to the quality of its ideas, but this issue is a strong step in the right direction. Read Full Review

    This issue brings another layer of mystery into the fold as the Robins are all called to a meeting spot without much clue as to why. It slowly unfolds what their next mission is but who is behind this information? Are they being helped by him? Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Jul 23, 2015

    After how much I enjoyed the premier issue of We are Robin, I was a little bit let down by this particular installment. As character took a backseat to action, I found myself thrilled by the exploits of a group of protagonist I didn't know or understand. Personally, I find it hard to care about the fate of characters that I have not yet had an opportunity to get to know. While the story didn't help me invest in the characters, it did lay groundwork for a future that is ripe with potential. Still looking forward to seeing where this goes, and hoping to get clued in on the motivations behind these new “Robins”. Read Full Review
