The Best Robin, Tim Drake, is Getting an Ongoing Series Again!

Announced on Thursday, Tim Drake is going to get his own ongoing series again, and he’s going to stay Robin! This is pretty exciting news. The series is going to be called Tim Drake: Robin, and will be written by Meghan Fitzmartin, who is responsible for reviving Tim’s profile by having him come out as bisexual, with art from Riley Rossmo. The series kicks off in September.

I’m pretty excited. Tim Drake was one of my favorite comic book characters for a long time, but then he sorta dropped off when DC showed they had no idea what to do with him. He’s the greatest Robin of all time, but he’s not as dramatic as Damian Wayne, so he’s been stuck in a weird Red Robin limbo for more than a decade. It wasn’t until Fitzmartin came out with a bisexual reveal story over the past year that Tim is finally high profile again.

Here’s what the series is going to be about:

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?

Personally, I prefer Tim as Batman’s partner, but I can handle some solo Tim Drake as Robin action. Tim obviously held his own solo series for a very, very long time in the 1990s and 2000s. So hopefully he kicks a ton of butt in this new series.

For added Tim as Robin awesomeness, Chip Zdarsky is going to feature the character heavily in his upcoming Batman arc, with a focus on the Dynamic Duo back together. This is gonna be a good summer for Tim Drake fans.
