Robins #1

Robins #1 kicks off a six-issue mini-series bringing the current and former Robins together. We get a team-up in Blüdhaven with the heroes taking down some Anarky followers before a group huddle for the heroes to discuss the mantle of being Robin. And then the craziness starts with the introduction of a new villain obsessed with the group and out to prove she is the one true Robin.

I like the Robins all together, and I'm happy to see that Stephanie Brown's stint as Robin has been confirmed as part of current continuity (even if her time as Batgirl still hasn't, sigh). That said, the group discussion in Dick's apartment feels a bit awkward and staged with the characters racing through what could be an intriguing discussion. I'm also far from sold on this weird new (old?) Robin.
