I’m waaayyy too busy to read spoilers from “solicitations.” So maybe I was the last to find out that they have announced the end of the whole “Damian Wayne’s death” debacle. I read it at the end of Batman Eternal #11, in the promo-info page. “Robin Rises.”
But a twist is here that I didn’t expect anytime soon…This is going to be a story about Apokolips!
I can barely contain my excitement about this guys. I am really a fan of Robin. I don’t know why, but the character always has appealed to me, differently that Batman does. For instance I really enjoyed some of those, most of those that I read really, the solo titles featuring only Robin. I had a Robin Annual one time that I read over and over featuring Eclipso and the Black Diamond.For me this was always Tim Drake, someone who is always getting the wrong end of the stick as far as writing goes with the New 52 comics. He also doesn’t really get drawn well. I like his New 52 costume. But I don’t like his face. I generally like him in other medium, like the Teen Titans cartoon for instance. This is the Robin I remember the best after Dick Grayson on the old 1966 show.
Not sure who is in the cave in Batman #28, the spoiler issue for Batman Eternal. Me and everyone else seems to have thought that would be Carrie Kelly as Robin. But there is a Robin in Future’s end spoiler pages and all…a mystery Robin of the regular “boy” type, though older for sure. Is that Damian?
Well I can’t wait! There is a mini-series coming out as well, Robin Rises: Omega is the first issue. My assumption is the series will end with Alpha. Ending to Beginning. If Damian is brought back to life, and this is the strong implied signal, then what does that mean for Carrie Kelly, Stephanie Brown, Tim Drake, and other potential Robins?
I for one hope they do bring him back. Too many Robins have been killed off. If they want to change Robin to someone else, then they can at least still bring Batman’s son back to life, and we can get more Damian action. I don’t want them to make him evil, either. Bruce did a good job of reforming him.
