When it all went to hell For the most part, the Year One stories from DC Comics tend to follow the origin stories of the characters with a little extra thrown in for taste.Â In the case of Black Lightning, it looks like an entire retcon is taking place.Â The Tobias Whale plot is still there, but toss in a dose of magic and mysticism, and Talia al Ghul and youâ€™ve got a very different story from the one you read in the 1970â€™s.
I dig the Robin title. Iâ€™ve liked the character of Tim Drake Wayne since he was first introduced way back in August of 1989 (Batman #436). I liked what happened with the Robin character following One Year Later (for better or worse). Iâ€™ve liked what Iâ€™ve seen with Robin trying to get his love life in order and really coming into his own as a powerful character. But I have to say, the last several issues playing up the â€œWho is Spoiler?â€ story line left me pretty flat.
