Tim is all grown up.

On a serious note, I am really loving that Tim has been given a solo book again. But I almost feel sad, because this Red Robin is almost like Tim's graduation, he's breaking away from the bat family, and becoming a man.  Its kinda bittersweet. Tim was Robin when I started reading comics, now that he isn't Robin anymore I feel...old.

I'm wondering if this is going to last.

I like Tim wearing the new Red Robin costume and identity and I like Damian as the new Robin hopefully this will not be temporary.

Yost brought up that figure, or someone involved with the book, it might have even been Didio?

@Riot__blitz:

Isn't Tim still in high school? I think he's 16, he looks too small to be 18, and besides, his friends at school are still shocked about his absence. Sixteen sounds about right.

              He still has a few good years in him and he should do that when he's pushing 60.

@NightFang:  yeah but he's stuck in the past so he should return as an old man

but as much as i want dick to stay batman i don't think DC will keep him this is just a story arc its not a passing of the mantle which is to bad

Age in comics is weird. It feels like Tim has been 16 for like 5 years.  They sure draw him pretty buff for a 16 year old.  Holy steroids Batman!

Wasn't he 15 when Azreal took over for injured Bruce? Wasn't that like 17 years ago? I like Tim and enjoy Red Robin and think that this is his chance to be his own man kinda like Dick becoming Nightwing. Sure he may be separating from the Bat Family a bit but doesn't mean he'll be away for long this is him finding his own identity.

I know right. They are one of the few places that have real chocolate shake, not vanilla shakes with chocolate syrup mixed in.
