Tim Drake to get new solo series this September

It’s been over a decade since Tim Drake has had a solo series of his own, but that all changes on September 27th. Writer Meghan Fitzmartin will continue the story she began in the pages of Batman: Urban Legends and DC Pride: Tim Drake Special with the all new series Tim Drake: Robin. Drawn by Harley Quinn artist Riley Rossmo, Tim Drake: Robin will follow Tim as he faces off against a new villain going after his friends and family, all from his new base of operations… a “murder-shack-boat.”

To celebrate the new series, variant covers commemorating the different eras of Tim’s career are being released for the first issue. The main cover is drawn by Ricardo Lopez Ortiz.

1:50 Young Justice Era Variant by Dan Mora

Read the official press release below:

Spinning out of Batman Urban Legends and Tim Drake Pride Special, writer Meghan Fitzmartin continues the next chapter of Tim’s story with fan-favorite artist Riley Rossmo (Harley Quinn).

This kinetic, high-energy series pulls Tim center stage as a mystery over a year in the making takes shape. A new villain who’s been hounding Tim from afar decides to take things up close and personal, putting Bernard and everyone else Tim cares about in peril. All that and Tim finally carves out a corner of Gotham City just for himself, and sets up shop in his very own…murder-shack-boat?

If that wasn’t enough, break out your skateboards and motorcycles because DC has assembled a Rogues’ Gallery of artists to capture all of Tim’s iconic looks over the years, with a One Year Later Era variant by Jorge Jimenez, a 1:25 Debut Era variant by Sweeney Boo, a 1:50 Young Justice Era variant by Dan Mora, and a 1:100 Teen Titans Era variant by Jamal Campbell, with main cover by Ricardo López Ortiz.

Tim Drake fans can get caught up on the beginning of this story with the Tim Drake Pride Special, on sale now. And Damian fans needn’t worry; the youngest Wayne’s adventures as Robin will continue in Batman Vs. Robin, written by Mark Waid with art by Mahmud Asrar, on sale September 13.
