Reminiscing About Robin


Reminiscing About Robin: A Look Back in Wonder

Newsarama reports: " Launched in 1993, the Robin ongoing series totaled one hundred ninety-two issues including seven annuals and was preceded by three miniseries totaling fifteen issues. During that time, Tim Drake grew from novice sidekick to a confident and capable hero while undergoing a series of tragedies that would have psychologically and emotionally crippled virtually anyone else.

The majority of the issues of Robin were written by Chuck Dixon, but substantial contributions were also made by Jon Lewis, Bill Willingham, Adam Beechen, and Fabian Nicieza. Dixon authored the original mini-series and the first one hundred issues of the ongoing series. To many fans, Dixon is the definitive writer for Tim Drake. During this period of his life, Tim overcame the challenges of facing new the typical Batman villains for the first time as well as developing a rogues gallery of his own."

    Despite Dixon's many years on the comic, I found Adam Beechen's treatment of Robin to be easily the best. I'm glad Dixon is gone from DC.
