Bat-Month continues today with Day 3 of the Partners and Allies series. This time out I present my favorite Robin of all time!
Tim Drake is awesome and I will not hear any other arguments on the subject. I was there when he first appeared and starting in 1994 I never missed an issue until 2005 when I thought the character was being mishandled. It is a damn shame that Tim has taken a back seat in terms of the Batman titles and that doesn’t seem to be changing with the re-launch.
No one wrote Tim better than Chuck Dixon. He may not have created the character but he certainly defined him . Chuck never lost sight of the fact that he was writing a younger character. He was a teenager and even though he was thrust into very adult and dangerous situation he still had the usual teenage hang-ups like problems with girls and having to hide his something from his father. The first 100 issues of the ongoing Robin series are amazing and I cannot recommend them enough.
Tomorrow: A certain daughter of a certain police commissioner gets her spotlight! Don’t miss it!
