Red Robin continues to be one of my fave books on shelves nowadays. When he was globe-trotting under Christopher Yost’s pen it reminded me a lot of the old Chuck Dixon penned Robin mini-series (way back in the day when a solo book mini or otherwise featuring Robin was a BIG deal) where Tim was being trained / groomed as the new Robin and encountering villainy all across the world.
I’m not sure if Tim’s confrontation with Digger is a long one or whether Captain Boomerang makes it onto Red Robin’s Hit List, but this confrontation seems a long time coming since Digger killed Tim’s dad.
If you aren’t reading Red Robin, give it a try. New writer Fabian Nicieza is a veteran writer whose closing issues of Tim’s old Robin (no “Red”) series really pulled me in (as I hadn’t been reading that book). Marcus To’s art is also dynamic, fluid, and perfect for this book.
I think Red Robin may be the hidden gem book of the Batman book revamps over a year ago or so since the Batman and Robin book has sucked all the attention and oxygen from fandom.
