Tim Drake: Robin #5 Review


Writer: Meghan Fitzmartin
Artist: Riley Rossmo
Release Date: January 25, 2023
Cover Price: $3.99

This issue is something!  I mean, Tim Drake is a sick detective.  He really throws up...those hands.  If he knew a guy named Chuck, he probably greets him with, "What's Upchuck?" Alright, enough of that!  Let's get on with the review...

Bits and Pieces:

Tim Drake: Robin #5 is one of the worst comic book issues I've read in quite some time.  The plot is nonsensical, the reveal is laughable, and the way that Tim defeats his last enemy is something you have to see to believe, but not in a good way.  The art continues to be a problem, even with another artist doing most of the pages this month. This series will surely be on multiple "worst of" lists for years to come, so I can only recommend it to someone who wants to brag that they were one of the few who read it when it came out.



  1. Why are you still reading this? Seriously. I dropped it after #1. Fitzmartin ruins everything she touches.

    1. that's what we do! Eric gave one of the issues his book of the week on the podcast, but I think he might have been temporarily insane!!!
