Questions I Was Happily Surprised to See Answered in Red Robin #1

  1. Why is Tim Drake no longer Robin?
  2. Why is Damian now Robin?
  3. Why is Tim Drake wearing the Red Robin costume most recently worn by Jason Todd, the homicidal villain of "Battle for the Cowl"?
(Because Dick views him as an equal, not a protege; because Dick thinks he's too dangerous to let out of his sight; and because Tim knows he might have to do some line-crossing things and would rather those things be connected to Jason than to Bruce or Dick.)

All in all, I was much happier with this comic than I expected to be. I'm happy to see Tim growing up, and Christopher Yost does a fine job of writing this next stage in Tim's character development. And the art's not too shabby, either. I'm anxious to see where this goes.
