Last month, I thought that was the end of it. I thought this is it, the end of this stupid Unternet storyline that has been bogging down Red Robin and bringing it to Chris Yost levels of boredom for me. And then, I open this month’s issue to find the storyline is not over, and Tim still has to deal with issues in the Unternet. Well, whoopity dee, it’s time for more fun with Red Robin #21.
As usual we open with the cover…

It’s been a while, but real life and the fact that DC Digital has been light in Bat related books as of late caused the delay. To make it up, at some point I should post a nice “What else can you find over at DC Digital” article at some point this month.
So let’s get caught up shall we?

Red Robin #15 is carrying on Fabian's first storyline of the series, with Tim Drake in crutches going to see the resurrected Captain Boomerang, who murdered Tim’s father in Identity Crisis. The real question I had when I saw this page was why was Tim Drake in crutches?
In this issue, Fabian takes care of the problem he set up in Gotham Gazette of Vicki Vale finding out the Bat-Families secret identities. You know the thing that Chris Yost could not be bothered to deal with in…

Red Robin #13 is a book I want to love. Is it the fact that Marcus To is slowly becoming one of my favorite consistent artists at DC, and making me feel like a proud parent watching their child grow up before their eyes. Because let’s be honest, his first few issues of this title, weren’t that great to look at. But now, it seems like we are starting to see how awesome Marcus To can be. Sadly that is not the reason I enjoyed this book. The reason…

Red Robin #12 marks the end of the Chris Yost run on the title, and with it, the culmination of the story he has been telling about Tim Drake since issue 1, the only question is, was the story worth telling?
To me, the answer is sadly no. What started out as a strong series about Tim Drake becoming his own man, slowly but surely turned into a book about a whiny brat not believing that his father figure was dead. It went from being not as…

Red Robin #11 is the third part of the collision storyline, and also the 11th part of Chris Yost’s run on the character, that will culminate with issue 12 and end his tenure on the comic. The issue does its best to annoy the reader by jumping between Tam Fox and Vicki Vale and Red Robin fighting a bunch of league of assassin nobodies. All in all, what we have here is a mediocre comic.
The jumping back and forth in this issue is setting up that…

Editor's Note: Here is the final part of Suavestar's entry. Be sure to read the first two if you haven't already. And be sure to leave comments below on your thoughts of Fabian coming back.
Now for the big news, come June, Fabian Nicieza is coming to Red Robin. Most people will be happy about this news, as it means an end to the Chris Yost run on the book. I am one of those people; I am not a fan of Yost’s writing on the book.
I did not like it…

Editor's Note: Here is part two.
Red Robin #10, with the current creative team of Chris Yost, and Marcus To, is another issue in the Red Robin versus Ra's al Ghul saga. This issue picks up where Batgirl #8 left off, with Prudence on a rooftop with Red Robin and Stephanie, only now, she’s holding a gun to Stephanie, claiming she has to kill her. Tim then gives us a page of inner monologue about how it is his fault that Stephanie is in this situation and…
