"Search for a Hero" part 1! Facing some of the toughest criminals and monsters known to man is nothing compared to dealing with your on again/off again, back-from-the-dead girlfriend's enraged deadbeat dad! A not-so-happy reunion puts Robin between Spoiler and Cluemaster!

    If you want a glimpse at the future of the Bat titles postRIP, this is a great jumping on point, which sounds ridiculous saying, seeing as RIP hasn't even ended yet. Read Full Review

    Okay, so maybe Robin isnt entirely alone. As the cover suggests, someone is fighting crime in Gotham as the Red Robin. It isnt Jason Todd. Well then who the heck is it? Dont know yet, and thats part of the alluring mystery thats going to draw folks towards Robin. #177 is the perfect outlet for Fabian Nicieza to display his talent with Robin when he isnt concerned with a tie-in. After the exit of Chuck Dixon, the title was thrown into a realm of question. Will it be good? Yes. Fabian Nicieza is one of the best things that has happened to Robin in some time, and I hope hell be here casting a mature light on Tim Drake for a good while to come. Read Full Review

    Simply put though, the best thing you can do as a Batman fan is read RIP, brace yourself for whatever changes are coming, and wait on everything else. Oh, and see Dark Knight some more. Read Full Review
