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.
Writer Bryan Q. Miller and artist Talent Caldwell kick off a crossover with RED ROBIN, as Tim Drake returns to Gotham Cit. But who does he find in the Batcave? None other than Stephanie Brown, the new Batgirl. And when Ra's al Ghul attacks one of Batman's closest allies, Red Robin and Batgirl will have to put the past aside to save Leslie Thompkins's life. Continued in Red Robin #10. BATGIRL #8 hits 3/10. [gallery link="file"]
