This trade paperback is a collection of Tim Drake’s first mini series. The character of Robin has come a long way. The original sidekick is Dick Grayson. He paved the way for the superhero genre to have sidekicks. Unfortunately the campiness of the 1960s Batman TV show made Robin into nothing by a joke that was constantly perplexed and surprised at the littlest of happenings. In the comic books, Dick Grayson moved on to become Nightwing, and his predecessor was Jason Todd who was ultimately killed by the Joker. After Jason came Tim Drake who held the mantle of Robin for close to two decades before he moved on himself. This trade paperback is the telling of Tim on his first training and first solo adventure without Batman. It is a great read and essential for anyone to understand where Tim Drake began his training and how he earned the respect of many readers, including myself.

  1. I was about 17-18 when this came out. It was a huge deal. A Robin mini-series?! The costume was amazing since it made Tim unique. I went to a comic store a few days after the first issue came out and they already jacked up the price to $5. I liked that he was still training and didn’t know everything which made him incredibly humble. It was a breath of fresh air after Jason Todd. I loved it when he finally knocked Shiva on his ass plus he knew he would pay for it later. I also thought that Shiva was trying to seduce Tim too. There was a creepy vibe to her throughout the series. Another great review as always.
