    This book doesn't have any right being this good.  I originally dismissed this title as being something to simply interest younger readers and thankfully I was wrong because this book is amazing.  The writing actually makes you feel like these characters are teenagers and their reactions feel spot on for what they're going through, with fantastic art that fits this book perfectly.  Out of all the books that the DCYou are putting out, this one definitely has the most heart and you feel it in every issue.

    DCyou has some great new titles, but We Are Robin is my clearfavorite. DC needed an entertaining and socially conscious teen book, and this is it. We Are Robin #3 fun, engaging and representative in a way few books are. I say it deserves a fair chance if you havent already given it a look. Read Full Review

    We Are" Robin! #3 has some great pacing for a series involving so many new characters and moving plot pieces. It was full of action, suspense, emotion, and heartbreak. This creative team is holding nothing back as they should capturing the cost of being a hero. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Max Eber Aug 28, 2015

    While I'm skeptical about the big reveal, with the very fatal turn We Are Robin is firmly an entirely different portrayal of teens and twenty-somethings and socio-economic play than say Batgirl and Babs' Burnside, it doesn't even feel like the same city. I'm extremely excited to see how Batgirl will mesh in this comic and I've gotten some inklings that it will be great. I like the alternate take on Riko's costume on the alternate cover here. Well worth your interest. Read Full Review

    The Rainbow Hub - Ten Van Winkle Aug 28, 2015

    A tease for the next issue promises us a Batgirl appearance, which seems pretty powerful when all the original Robins already look up to Barbara as the first sidekick and kind of a model for success. Long and short is that while the second issue was a little slow and this one was a little sloppy visually, We Are Robin smashes it up this week, ramping up the drama at a great pace as it leads towards Robin War in December. The savvy Batfan is going to be pickng this title up–and probably keeping an eye out for the perfect pieces for their Robin costume, too, so they can be ready to show their stuff. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Aug 28, 2015

    Gotham's newest vigilantes take a big hit in this issue as Bermejo lays down some heart wrenching scenes. Corona and Mulvihill create some explosive scenes together as well. But it all makes you wonder"how far are the Robins willing to go to continue this crusade? Is it all or nothing? Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 29, 2015

    The action and tension are great, the characters are getting some real depth and uniqueness, and we got to see the first meeting between Robo-Batman and the Robins. That's got to count for something. Bermejo is building a solid concept and making it work, and I can't wait to see him really sink his teeth into all these Robins. Read Full Review

    The Kliq Nation - Timdogg Aug 26, 2015

    This was a very explosive issue of We Are Robin. The stakes have been raised. We have to see if the team can rally around the loss of a teammate, or if they let that tear down what they've built so far. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 27, 2015

    Writer Lee Bermejo successfully highlights the nervousness and tension that comes as these untested heroes put their lives on the line. What this series hasn't really managed to do, however, is flesh out its young cast to an acceptable degree. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Sep 1, 2015

    The art is definitely growing on me, and I liked it a fair deal to begin with, and it's lovely to see so many different takes on the Robin iconography on so many different looking young heroes. With a small war delayed but not necessarily contained and their mysterious backer revealed, the series seems to be lined up to address its major weaknesses and provide something that's more than just a new coat of paint on the Bat clan. Though it's not quite as solidly constructed as last issue, We Are Robin #3 lays groundwork for a very interesting run with more than one surprise along the way. Read Full Review

    All told, "We Are Robin" #3 shows that the series is beginning to coalesce. The concept definitely has legs, and I'm enjoying how the Robins work as a team. If I can just get to know them better as individuals, I'll be sure to stay with this series. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Aug 27, 2015

    While the book still hasn't bothered to properly define the cast's motivations, nor given us time to accordingly develop attachments to them, it is nonetheless an entertaining read. This particular chapter elicited far more credible responses from the children in regards to their daunting predicaments, and I found that especially satisfying. This issue also reveals the alias of The Nest, and while my theories about his identity panned out, it didn't make it any easier for me to swallow. The story continues to be engaging enough that even if I weren't reviewing it I'd still be picking it up. Read Full Review
