    Regarding who will be donning the cowl of the Red Robin:

    So Aquaman is out?

    Ooh, thatís interesting. Youíre getting into spoiler territory [laughs
    Well, fudge......I had it pegged as Arthur Curry, lol.



    I'm looking forward to this. Detective/Batman is a lock for me to pick up with Red Robin and Batman and Robin filling out the next two slots.

    Arthur Curry as Red Robin is exactly the level of twists and turns we plan to deliver! Just not that specific twist. :)

    PS, I don't know where the 'Kingdom Come Red Robin went mad' thing came from, I don't remember saying that (although it's completely possible I did, because I'm like that), but I'm pretty certain that's not the case. So, apologies to Mark Waid/Alex Ross.

    Thanks to Jeffrey for doing such a kick ass interview!

    Wow this sounds like it could really be good. Bachs is a rising star, and deservingly so. And Yost has kicked ass with his work on x-force and the X-men Animated series.

    is this gonna have that edge that x-force has? most dc series seem to play it safe, I'm looking at you JLA.
    Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.

    Hah! I got it! I GOT IT! It's going to be Wally West, isn't it? After all, with the main Flash position being occupied by Barry Allen, Wally has time to direct his attention elsewhere...

    he sounds like a nice guy.

    I might consider getting this title as it sounds more interesting now.

    We all know it's Tim, he's already used the costume.

    You know, I was jesting about the Wally West thing, but if Red Robin is searching for Bruce Wayne and Bruce is stuck in 1 million B.C. (or whenever), having a speedster known for his time-traveling exploits around would be handy...

    This sounds pretty damn cool. I will wait and see who's under the mask to decide if i'll pick it up. So many bat books, so little monies

    It's clear it's Tim.

    Tim's new Robin costume reflected his growth away from previous Robins and closer to Bruce's "side of things," if you will.

    And that new costume was patterned after the Earth-2 Robin who, despite being that universe's Dick Grayson, was nonetheless a Robin who became his own man.

    Final bit of evidence: Tim's Robin costume matches Red Robin's color scheme.

    Thus Tim Drake=Red Robin.

    Now that that's out of the way, will this series be any good? There's the more important question.

    It looks interesting, though I'll reserve judgment until it's released. Definitely seems worth looking at though. The only thing that's annoying me is that it appears DC won't be releasing the identities of the characters under the masks until the June issues - and if BfC ends without at least giving us the identity of the new Batman I will be more than slightly annoyed.

    I'm still going to at least look at all the new Bat-books.

    Also isn't Tim the only character at this point to still beleive Bruce is still alive ? I'm pretty sure is was mentioned by Alfred and Dick that he washaving a hard time accepting Bruce's death. I just don't remember what book it was in, maybe a Nightwing issue.

    Wally West is also supposed to get a "new costume" pretty soon.

    That being said...I still think/hope that it is Tim.
