FABIAN NICIEZA SIGNS UP AS REGULAR RED ROBIN WRITER

Tim Drake's had a rough year, to say the least.

Struggling with a new identity, searching for the mentor only he believes is actually alive and tangled up with Ra's Al Ghul and his deadly League of Assassins -- not exactly a recipe for long-term health, y'know?

Well, things aren't going to get any easier. Starting with June's RED ROBIN #13, writer Fabian Nicieza will step in as the new regular writer, joining series artist Marcus To for what will certainly prove to be an extension of the wild ride Red Robin's been on so far.

While it may sound like a simple choice, Azrael has to decide if the perceived saint is a sinner or if the sinner is an innocent man.

Batman Group Editor Michael Marts is scared...

In the spirit of my favorite time of the year…here are a few things that scare me.

THE FLAMINGO. This guy has death and danger written all over him. He rides a motorcycle and rips people’s faces off for fun. Oh yeah, and to top it all off, he’s dressed head-to-toe in pink. What’s not to be afraid of? If Batman & Robin thought they had their hands full with Red Hood & Scarlet, well, they haven’t seen anything yet. Check out the Flamingo in all of his pink and face-ripping glory in BATMAN & ROBIN #6.

And, because we're completists here at The Source, we've got the translation of Simona's original text, to help those who couldn't translate it on their own. Take it away, Simona:
