Damian Wayne is a Dark Robin in New Ongoing Series!

Spinning out of this new Infinite Frontier thing that DC Comics is doing, Damian Wayne is going to get a new Robin solo series starting in April! He’s going to get a new costume and a new mission, having cut himself off from Batman and the Teen Titans.

Why he gets to keep the Robin name is anyone’s guess. I’m not thrilled about it, but I will dutifully report any Robin-based news on this blog.

The new series will be written by Joshua Williamson, with art by Gleb Melnikov. The series will have a new supporting cast, new characters and a lot of fights.

“Being a big fan of Damian Wayne, I’m really excited about getting him back on a hero’s journey,” says Williamson in the new series announcement. “Gleb is the perfect artist to tell this story as we show readers Damian’s growth, in a new adventure that navigates his legacy, his connections to Batman, Talia al Ghul, and kicks off an important story in the DC Universe.”

A quick synopsis says that Damian will take part in the League of Lazarus tournament to prove he is the best fighter in the world!

I’ll probably check this out. I had some mildly high hopes that Damian was finally moving on from the Robin identity. And I was slightly confused when Tim Drake resumed the mantle. I think DC Comics is ready to crown a new Robin, one who actually works alongside Batman again. But perhaps Damian is a popular character? And he’s got such a strong presence is multi-media.

Still, I think a really strong push for a new Robin would be perfect for this Infinite Frontiers thing. Do it fresh, like Tim Drake back in the late 80s. But perhaps that’s just me.
