The Rundown: Batman races to take down an old enemy as the Robins discover the truth behind their new enemy.

Batman is racing to the location he discovers Cormac Dodge is hiding. As he makes his way there, he remembers his history with the villain as well as what happened to him and his ward/sidekick Jenny Wren. What he doesn’t know is that he is being manipulated by Jenny as the Robins decide to deep dive into the final test Tim was able to send to them.

After discovering the truth on their own, the Robins race to confront Jenny who has tricked Bruce into doing something that could destroy them all. A confrontation that will expose a dark truth they might not be able to face as they learn the truth about Jenny Wren and what she means to the legacy of the name Robin.

The Story: Seeley brings all the elements and emotions that have building in this series to a satisfying and entertaining conclusion. There are several great character moments throughout and the evolution of Jenny as a character is done well. I like that there is a level of tension throughout with several of the characters making decisions that reinforce what Bruce has meant in their lives as well as who they are as individuals. The story has a great pace and energy hat kept me engaged moment by moment.

The Art: Rivas delivers some great art in the issue. The art style has much of the same energy as the story and complements it perfectly with exciting visual action and tension.
