Following a solo story in Batman: Urban Legends and the DC Pride special that collected it this week, Tim Drake will star in a new ongoing series, Tim Drake: Robin, starting in September. Meghan Fitzmartin, who wrote the Urban Legends story, will write it, while Harley Quinn artist Riley Rossmo will draw it.
DC calls it a “kinetic, high-energy series” That “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-boat?
The variant covers they have planned “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 a main cover by Ricardo López Ortiz.
The first issue arrives Sept. 27.
