Tim Drake, the only robin who had his own comic before graduating into a different name, not to mention that he even had a longer run then nightwing
Um, no. Dick Grayson's run was 1940 to 1983 (until he quit being Robin to become Nightwing), while Tim's was 1989 - 2009, only 20 years, less than half the years that Dick was Batman's sidekick.
I hate to nitpick, but as an older reader who is a fan of Grayson both as Robin and as Nightwing, it annoys me that DC insists on minimizing Dick's time in the role. Now, with the new 52 reboot, even Tim was said to never be "Robin," but was, instead, always "Red Robin," at least according to Lobdell. The Batman books have referenced Tim as Robin, however, so there is some disagreement in the current continuity.
Really? Dick Grayson had his OWN SERIES called Robin? I'm not talking how long he was a sidekick, I'm saying he is a sidekick that had the longest series for him self, not to mention that he didn't graduate from robin before that, and the comic ran for 185 issues.
Bart Allen the only other sidekick to have a run of over 100 issues before even graduating from his original name ( Impulse )
I still say he should have kept that name instead of going to Kid Flash. Not only is Impulse a better name but Kid Flash is something you graduate from not to.
True, plus who wants to be called Kid Flash, DC writers them selves make fun of that name.
Sorry, thought you mean Tim had been Robin longer (which I've heard some say). Not taking anything away from Tim, he was a great Robin, too, who's also gotten screwed under the new reboot.
