Fun Times

 Fun.

That’s the best way to describe this issue.

Wait, what?  Describing the new badass “I’m dark and angry like my Daddy” attitude Red Robin-Tim Drake-Wayne-(Draper) as fun is a little weird.  However, it works.

I loved the contrast in this issue of how Tim comes back to Gotham, talks about how shitty it is yet feels the need to apologize and actually crack a smile for good ol’ times.  Ra’s is super menacing in this issue and his plan seems pretty dastardly.  I feel like this actually has some substance.

The nice thing about this series – so far – is that it works the way a comic should work.  It has nicely developed storylines in 3-5 issue arcs that play a role in the bigger picture.  Not only that, it also makes reference to what’s going on in the whole universe.  Sure, I would have liked it if Tim did some more world-touring.

It probably helps that I’m a huge Tim Drake fan.
