This November, ROBINS, winner of DC’s Round Robin Competition is set to peel back the domino mask on the realities of the mantle of The Boy Wonder as Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake, Stephanie Brown, and Damian Wayne, are brought together to fight crime and finally sit down and talk about whether being a Robin was a good idea… but they can’t even do that without being ambushed.
The new series from the creative team of writer Tim Seeley and artist Baldemar Rivas finds Batman’s former sidekicks confronted by an unknown assailant who claims to have been the first Robin. Now the former Robins must figure out who she is, and in the process figure out what it means to be a Robin.
Writer Tim Seeley said about the chance to bring this new Robins series to life:
“I’ve been waiting to write all the Robins together since my Nightwing days! The chance to take this series straight to the fans meant we got to see the passion for these characters on full display, and I’m thrilled to work on it with Andrew, Baldemar and Romulo!”
Artist Baldemar Rivas added:
“I’m beyond thrilled to be working with an incredible team! Thank you everyone who voted for us and making this happen. Tim’s been cooking up something fierce with the Robins and can’t wait to show y’all!”
To help celebrate the series, DC will be releasing a series of “workout covers” that kicks of with Dick Grayson by artist Babs Tarr, who said about her cover’s subject:
“I remember while working on Batgirl of Burnside, I wasn’t super familiar with who Nightwing was. I asked one of my writers ‘What’s the deal with this guy..? Why does our Babs have such a thing for him?!’” And Brenden explained Dick Grayson to me, I sat back in my chair and said ‘I get it.’ hah. Ever since getting to do our romance issue with Nightwing, I too, will also always have, a thing for Dick Grayson.”
Next for Issue #2 Jason Todd, AKA The Red Hood, is caught on his way out of the gym, drawn by the inimitable Nick Robles.
Marcus To who drew Tim in Red Robin is reunited with Tim Drake for issue #3.
In a press release from DC To said about being approached for this reunion:
“Tim Drake has been an important character for me. I would not be where I am today in my career were it not for our favorite Robin. Working on the Red Robin series back in 2010 was my first run on a DC title and it means so much to me. When DC approached me to work on the workout variant for Tim Drake, I jumped at the opportunity.”
The variant cover for issue #4 drawn by Jen Bartel, catches up with Stephanie Brown at the gym, as she pursues those gains.
