DICK GRAYSON!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by micah

The colors confused me, for a second I thought Hal was a Yellow Lantern

Edited by SupBatz

So is this a re-write of pre-existing origins or a compilation of past stories into one issue?

Posted by Outside_85

Thought Lobdell already ruined Tim?

Posted by dondave

Ugh, I hope Venditti doesn't spoil Hal's origin.

Edited by TheMantisShrimp

Those covers are so great, is Lee Bermejo doing interiors for some of these stories too?

Edited by lifeofvibe

Again why?

Edited by AllStarSuperman

I'm sure people will be happy with Tim Drake

@outside_85: why!? Why!? WHY!? Teen Titans has already been cancelled, and Tim has been given to James Tynion for Batman Eternal. Why can't HE write this origin!? This makes me so upset, I can barely even handle it. Yes, Tim "Drake" has already been ruined in Teen Titans #0, why twist the knife DC!?

Why can't Lobdell leave Red robin alone for good? When do the full solicits come out?

Lee Bermejo knocks it out of the park yet again on the cover.

Posted by Outside_85

@dagmar_merrill: Monday, probabaly, DC seems to have moved solicitations from 2nd to 3rd monday of the month now.

Posted by ArturoCalaKayVee

Ugh. Venditti rewriting Hals origin and Lobdell re-rewriting Tim's? Damn it DC.

Edited by dondave

@supbatz I believe they're new stories. Robert Venditti hasn't written Hal's origin before.

@lifeofvibe:

Maybe for execpt Starfire, where we only a few which is the basic of Starfire like she was Alien Princess and was sell as slave. I guess is to people buy it and doesnt become another cancelled tittle like DC Presents (insert the name here).

I don't understand why people don't like Venditti

@lifeofvibe: Well that's a shame, I'm actually pretty pumped, I think Hal has one of the better origin stories among heroes.

Posted by ArturoCalaKayVee

I don't understand why people don't like Venditti

I'm split between the guy. I absolutely love his work on X-O but firmly believe he is the death of Green Lantern.

Ugh. Lobdell + Tim Drake = No way in hell am I buying this. I might skim through the Batwoman portion in my LCB store. But I refuse to support the travesty that is Lobdell's Red Robin.

@arturocalakayvee: Being able to write one brash guy empowered by an alien artifact should mean you can write another one just fine.

I have no idea why decided Lobdell latched on to Tim just have faith that Eternal will redeem him, If that can't save him then nothing can.

Ugh, poor Tim.

Sounds pretty cool, and I love the art that you posted.

Posted by kennybaese

I'm semi seriously considering adding this series to my pull just for the covers. No joke.

Posted by THEOCITYLEGEND

Man, Bermejos art never fails to impress.

Oh I guess Nightwing is not dying in Forever Evil then.

Interetings

Edited by MaccyD

Will this series not run out of material soon, if they're doing 3 origins an issue?

@jonny_anonymous-Poor Rob didn't have to deal with coming after Johns' run though with X-O, which is widely considered the character's best.

Posted by lifeboy

Yeah, I'm getting this. Two reasons: superman, supergirl. YOLO!

Posted by Supreme Marvel

Seriously, Lobdell f**k off. Leave Tim alone.

Reading his stuff on Tim is like looking at Liefeld's art.

Posted by Vaeternus

I think this is a series I will buy monthly depending, meaning ask my local shop first who the issue covers or just "reserve it" to read it then decide cause some characters I'll admit I have zero interest in their origins. But this could be like Villians month which was epic.

Edited by ptigrusmagus

So much complaining

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

@maccyd: That doesn't make this run bad, it just makes it different

Posted by MaccyD
Edited by MaccyD

@jonny_anonymous: Tell that to the fans. It's common to see fans complain about how it isn't like their favourite runs or comparing it negatively to their favourite run or saying it's wrong because it's not like their favourite run. Btw this isn't just GL, this is more common than you think.

Posted by BlackRobin195

I'm loving these Bermejo covers. Probably wait for the trade for this series. $4.99 is a little much to spend each month.

Posted by nateb1211

If that is the actual cover then I am in love.

Posted by BR_Havoc

@jonny_anonymous: I do not know if its people do not like him. I just find his stories a big step down from John's on Green Lantern. His stuff just is not memorable.

Seriously, what's the point of the Secret Origin ongoing? None! We already had a zero month explaining all sorts of origins! Ughh it's so annoying...!

On a brighter note, that cover is stunning. I really want a poster of it.
