Night of the owls

#1 Posted by thatlad (594 posts) - - Show Bio

So us Tim Drake fans got hosed when TDK#9 featured Tim not only on the cover but also in the solicits "...Red Robin is back in Gotham City just in time to face off against TALON..." only when you read the book he's in there once in the background. I'm used to covers not being representative of the book, but this is DC actually lying to the fans to boost the sales of a book that really isn't doing well. I'm beyond annoyed.

Does anyone know where Tim is appearing during Night of the owls? So far these Talon fights have been weak:

Lincoln March just shot one

Damian chopped off his head like it was nothing

Jason talked one into killing himself...these are not the feared killers I thought them to be. The bat family could goto town on these creatures as they're not alive, instead we're getting weak fights with cop outs.

The one shot by Lincoln March survived and managed to kill him, Damian decapitated one with luck and PIS, actually I think they are not cannon fodders as ninjas and thugs are used.

Technically they didn't lie to us, he was in the book, and he was in time to fight a Talon he just didn't get to. That being said this whole bait and switch is severly f-d up

Misleading solicits are very common.
