    Default Tim Drake (Robin, Red Robin) Appreciation

    Don't worry. I gots it.

    So, now that we're back, anybody else wondering whether Eternal's Tim stories and the Titans relaunch might mean that Tim's back in Batbooks custody? It seemed pretty clear he was firmly under Teen Titans control for the last two years, which is ironic considering his history of making Young Justice follow the Bat-books' directives.

    I'm hoping so. I just want someone who writes Gotham stories first and foremost to control Tim's fate.

    I'd like to see him take a bigger role in the Bat books again myself, even if it's mostly helping to mentor Harper Row. With Babs as Batgirl instead of Oracle, maybe Tim can be the tech guy, though I love seeing him in action.

    His appearance in Batmna Eternal 2 did feature his Bo staff again, which made me smile. I don't mind the wings, I just think trying to make them a distinct weapon of his is stupid when the staff is simple and elegant.

    Also, I got pictures!

    I'd like to see him have a bigger roll in the Batbooks as well. I've really been missing that aspect most of all.

    The Eternal previews mention him and Harper Rowe hanging out. He's probably one of the sidekicks training her to fight. It'll be interesting to see him play the mentor role if that happens.

    Also, more pics:

    I'm just glad are boy Tim is finally in some good hands. Thank God for whoever cancelled Teen Titans and put Tim in this book. It's so great to finally be excited to be reading something good with Tim in it in the New 52.

    Okay, the Pre-52 Intro to Tim Drake Reading List:

    1. His first appearance was a cameo in Batman #436, part of the Year Three storyline.

    2. A Lonely Place of Dying (Batman #440-442, New Titans #60-61. Reprinted with Death in the Family in a DC Comics Library hardcover)

    3. New Titans #65 - Grayson trains Tim in the art of detective work. (not collected anywhere to my knowledge)

    4. Rites of Passage - Detective Comics 618-621 (collected in Robin: Tragedy & Triumph)

    5. Identity Crisis - Batman 455-457 (collected in Robin: A Hero Reborn)

    6. Robin #1-5, first miniseries (collected in Robin: A Hero Reborn)

    7. Batman 465-470

    8. Detective Comics 635-637

    9. Robin II: The Joker's Wild #1-4, second miniseries (collected in Robin: Tragedy & Triumph)

    10. Batman 480

    11. Detective 644-649 (Spoiler debuts in 647. Get 650, too; it's pretty fun.)

    12. Robin III: Cry of the Huntress #1-6, third miniseries

    13. Superman #70, Superman: The Man of Steel #14 - Tim & Superman vs Vampires.

    14. Knightfall

    15. Robin ongoing series #0, 1-128, and its annual specials (the title obviously continues, I stopped reading because of the miserable War Games arcs. Issues 1-6 collected in Flying Solo.)

    16. Showcase '93 #5, 11-12 (#5 crosses over with the ongoing Robin series, IIRC.)

    17. Showcase '94 #5-6

    18. Superboy & Robin: World's Finest III

    19. Robin Plus #1: Impulse

    20. Robin Plus #2: Fang

    21. Robin & Argent Double Shot

    22. Robin 80 Page Giant(s)

    23. [Girl-Frenzy] Young Justice: The Secret

    24. JLA: World Without Grownups (There is a recent reprint of this 2-issue miniseries in DC Comics Presents: Young Justice #1.)

    25. Young Justice (the original series by Peter David & Todd Nauck, not the one based on the cartoon.)

    26. Sins of Youth: a Young Justice event with a bunch of special issues.

    27. Other YJ specials: 80-Page Giant, Our World at War, No Man's Land, Secret Files. Some of these are reprinted in DC Comics Presents: Young Justice #2 & 3.

    28. Titans/Young Justice: Graduation Day. I don't recommend this at all, because of its misery, shock value, and pointless tragedy rolled into one. But it leads into the next Teen Titans series.

    29. Teen Titans #1-8. This is the best the series gets, but that's damning with faint praise.

    30. Red Robin (of course)

    31. Not related to Tim Drake in any way, but really great on its own: Robin 3000, a 2-issue miniseries by the late Byron Preiss and P. Craig Russell.

    He NEEDS his own book, surely?!

    Hopefully after Eternal, a solo book will happen, there can never be enough Tim Drake.

    next issue is supposedly centered on him meeting up with the Row siblings

    Perhaps, perhaps not....



    I don't think that'll come to pass since they JUST solicited a continuing book with him on the cover, but who knows nowadays?

    In four issues he's been in, like a half-page of him getting the news and sparring with robots he built. Nothing to really base anything on, yet.
