Summary
What an emotional roller-coater! If you have been keeping up with Detective Comics then you should know that Batman has been looking for Tim since he found out that something was wrong with his “death”.  Batman also was confirmed about Tim Drake’s fate, when Ascalon told him that Tim Drake was still alive. Now Tim is back and seeing Batman race through Gotham to finally see him gave me goosebumps. I loved that I finally saw everyone together; even family members who aren’t part of the Detective Comics group were present and ready to stop Tim Drake of the future. One thing that I wish was mentioned was about Mr. Oz. I wished Tim Drake told everyone who he was and what happened, but I guess stop the threats first then tell them what happened later. As a Batman fan, my favorite Robin has always been Tim Drake; from Robin to Red Robin, to Teen Titans to becoming Batman Beyond, he’s always been my favorite, which is why I kind of feel sad for Tim Drake of the future. But, whatever he has planned for that Bat-family will not be good. Brother Eye really can’t wait for the next issue.
