Red Robin #12

"Collision" concludes with a throwdown between Red Robin and Ra's al Ghul. Tim Drake gets high marks for defeating The Demon's Head, something not a lot of heroes can claim, though it appears Ra's isn't quite done with Mr. Drake quite yet. He's not Bruce Wayne, but Drake has managed to carve out his own niche not only in the Bat-family, but the entire DCU. With lots of Titan cameos, another funny interaction between Batgirl and Damian, and the continued focus on the intellectual side of crime-fighting, Red Robin gives another strong performance. I'm just hoping "The Return of Bruce Wayne" doesn't upset what the book has managed to achieve so far. Worth a look.

[DC $2.99]
