Happy Thursday heroes we’ve learned that Tim Drake will be getting a solo ongoing series starting in September. That’s right, spinning out of Batman Urban Legends and Tim Drake Pride Special, writer Meghan Fitzmartin will continue the next chapter of Tim’s story. Artist Riley Rossmo is set to be the artist of this series. Here’s what we know about the upcoming series thanks to DC Comics official press release. The comic is called Tim Drake: Robin.
This kinetic, high-energy series pulls Tim center stage as a mystery over a year in the making takes shape. A new villain who’s been hounding Tim from afar decides to take things up close and personal, putting Bernard and everyone else Tim cares about in peril. All that and Tim finally carves out a corner of Gotham City just for himself, and sets up shop in his very own…murder-shack-houseboat?
If that wasn’t enough, break out your skateboards and motorcycles because DC has assembled a Rogues’ Gallery of artists to capture all of Tim’s iconic looks over the years, with a One Year Later Era variant by Jorge Jimenez, a 1:25 Debut Era variant by Sweeney Boo, a 1:50 Young Justice Era variant by Dan Mora, and a 1:100 Teen Titans Era variant by Jamal Campbell, with main cover by Ricardo López Ortiz.
Tim Drake fans can get caught up on the beginning of this story with the Tim Drake Pride Special, on sale now. And Damian fans needn’t worry; the youngest Wayne’s adventures as Robin will continue in Batman Vs. Robin, written by Mark Waid with art by Mahmud Asrar, on sale September 13.
Overall, I’m pumped to see Tim Drake finally get an ongoing series after so many years. Here’s hoping that it will last longer than his last run.
