    There cannot be light without darkness"order without chaos"good without evil. The "Robins" finally have their Arch-Nemesis, and he is Duke's polar opposite. This point is demonstrated masterfully through the combined narrative efforts of Bermejo and Corona. In an industry ripe with convoluted storytelling and over the top scenarios, Bermejo delivers a truly organic tale full of depth, credibility, and gripping characters. If you've been curious about this title, now is the perfect time to experience the best of what W.A.R. has to offer. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Feb 6, 2016

    There is a lot going on in this issue and the stark contrast between family as presented with Duke Thomas and Smiley's case was an incredible detail that Bermejo pulled of with perfect precision. This book is getting us moving towards a reaction to the We Are Robin group. Just like Alfred said in The Dark Knight to Batman, these kids chose to do something and we are about to see that action returned by other teens that don't share their point of view. IT'S GETTING LIT UP IN WE ARE ROBIN, YO! Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Jan 28, 2016

    Overall, I would say this was a great first issue and, so far, a good recovery after Robin Wars lackluster performance. If anyone has not been following the series up until now, this feels like a good first issue to start with now. Read Full Review

    Now that the Robin War is over, we can get back to basics with our Robins and what they're up to after that event.......... since they kind of called it quits as a group. On top of that, we get a new villain and this issue tells a really intriguing duel story between Duke and his future foe. We pretty much have everything that I loved about this series before it was commandeered by Robin War and I can't wait to see where it goes from here. Just a great story, full of excellent art and I hope that a bunch of you will take this opportunity to pick this book up because it should be selling way more than it does. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 30, 2016

    The dust from Robin War has settled, and much like with Grayson, it's time to pick up the pieces and keep things moving. For the We Are Robin crew, we find that almost all of them have hung up their masks and tried to move on. It doesn't go very well. Read Full Review

    There's much to appreciate about what Bermejo's attempting, but at the end of the day it just winds up feeling like misery porn. Read Full Review
