I mean Red Robin, not Red Hood.

No, it's Frankenstein

Oh I see, thanks.

Is Batman studying Frankenstein? Thats kinda creepy...

#6 Posted by Mucklefluga (2507 posts) - - Show Bio

So Frankenstein is the person that changes Bats' life forever

#7 Posted by The Cyan Lantern (240 posts) - - Show Bio

Using IMAGE's boards lol

#8 Posted by Projector (24 posts) - - Show Bio

Anyone else notice that the second "sketch interior" page for Batman #19 says "Image Comics" on it?

Weird.

@Mucklefluga: SPOILER!!!!!

He is the new Robin.

#10 Posted by Trevel8182 (751 posts) - - Show Bio

I miss the pre-52 Tim Drake so much!!!

#11 Posted by X9 (751 posts) - - Show Bio

Curious about all of them...though I'm pretty sure James Jr. won't die in Batgirl#19

#12 Posted by DonFelipe (1096 posts) - - Show Bio

He's back!!! What's Frankenstein doing there?

Those panels look great by the way.

#13 Posted by Outside_85 (8072 posts) - - Show Bio

Aha! Damian is Frankenstein! :) (Will be interesting to see if Tim's own mental issues get to play a part in B&R)

#14 Posted by Teerack (5315 posts) - - Show Bio

Hopefully if Tim starts teaming with Bruce a lot will get to see a lot more of the old Tim.

#15 Posted by Mbecks14 (2068 posts) - - Show Bio

I really like that art in Batgirl! And of course Cappulo and Gleason

That's Frankenstein

Let's hope!

Batman and Red Robin? Holy shit. Maybe we'll see more of Tim's New 52 adventures before he left Bruce.

FRANKENSTEIN. Replacing Damian's "Tt" with a well placed "Hrrrr."

Batman....AND Red Robin, you say?! I am most ok with this. :)

#22 Posted by Equonox (964 posts) - - Show Bio

He's obviously studying Frankenstein in an attempt to bring back Damian...what could go wrong?

#23 Posted by ME24601 (118 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm glad to see that someone with talent is writing an issue with Tim Drake.

#24 Posted by longbowhunter (6712 posts) - - Show Bio

I had every intention of dropping B&R.; But seeing Patrick Gleason draw Frankenstein and Tim and Bruce back together makes this a must buy for me.

Everything looks great!

I hope Batman and Robin ends up continuing to be good as I'll probably add it as Snyder's Batman will be in the past for the next year and I'd like some Batman in the present stories!

#27 Posted by ThreadPool (98 posts) - - Show Bio

I really miss Tim and Bruce working together.

Why is Teen Titans so bad?! WHY?!?!

Red Robin was a solid title before the New52.

#28 Posted by Onemoreposter (3919 posts) - - Show Bio

Frankenstein? Hell yeah!

#29 Posted by Mr. Messy Face (120 posts) - - Show Bio

I want to see how they will change the logos for "Batman and Robin" when they make it for Tim, Jason, Selina, Barbara, and Dick.

@Red_Robin97:

It seems like we are going to see him team up with several of his sidekicks. I think I saw in the recent solicitation 21 is Batman and Batgirl.

Its called a crossover.

I'm pretty sure its just a one-time team up. Tomasi said that the Batman & Robin title was turning into a team up book, with just "Batman &" remaining constant. I think Batman and Jason are teaming up in the issue after this one.

#34 Posted by TheJester (118 posts) - - Show Bio

The idea of Bruce is increasingly remote. I wonder if it's the return of Hush...?

@The Cyan Lantern: Yeah Cupello was ranting on twitter one night about how poor the dc paper he'd been sent was, guessing he used some old image stuff instead, what a legend

#36 Posted by akbogert (3192 posts) - - Show Bio

@Zeeguy91: Out of curiosity, do you have a source for that? I've heard rumors about the future of the book but seeing an official statement about the title actually changing would be great.

crossover

also probably because Morrison also created Frankenstein

Good. It's time for Bat-Punisher.

Frankenstein is in this? Oh if only we could see a Frankenstein vs Grundy fight.

@akbogert: I think if you look at the DC solicitations for the upcoming months, it changes titles. Like here: http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=44222.

Those are the solicitations for June. Notice how instead of Batman & Robin #21, its Batman & Batgirl #21.

@Zeeguy91: Ah, thanks for the clarification. I've not looked at the solicits, but I see now what you're saying. Very interesting.

oH! I thought Tim was officially going to be his sidekick again. Oh well, a Avenging Batman title is cool I guess.

These look pretty cool! Most intrigued by Barbara and James Jr. myself in Batgirl.
