Nicieza returns to Tim Drake in June.
DC has announced that Fabian Nicieza is to take over as writer on the
Red Robin ongoing with June’s issue #13, joining series artist Marcus To.
When asked for comment by DC’s The Source blog, Nicieza had this to say:
“It feels great to be back on Red Robin for the first time! Having
the opportunity to close out Tim Drake’s Robin series was bittersweet.
He’s a character I’ve always wanted to write, but it was a tumultuous,
dark time for him and I was writing the book knowing the series would
end and evolve into Red Robin.
“I was reading Chris Yost’s first year on the series with jealous
admiration in that he was doing a great job, getting to work with an
excellent young artist in Marcus To and getting to move Tim through the
darkness into a better place as a way of natural story evolution!
“To unexpectedly get the chance to come back at this time, with Tim
Drake in a more positive place mentally, stepping into his own as a
young adult and better prepared to develop his own distinctive approach
to crimefighting — both in Gotham City and across the world — only means
the hundreds of stories I’ve always wanted to tell with the character
now number in the thousands!
“What lies ahead? Adventure, mystery, complex moral issues, an
evolving rogue’s gallery specific to the character, romantic triangles
(maybe quadrangles!), fun and humor all ripe for the picking! I can’t
wait for readers to see this excellent character’s continuing
development into something unique and special in the DC Universe!”
