"Powerful effects and sharp characterization."—Publishers Weekly
"Watching [Robin] struggle to reconcile his mother's cold-blooded anger with his father's compassion and nobility (and not a little outright arrogance from both sides of the family tree) has been one of the highlights of the comics reading experience in recent years."—Maxim
