New Comic Look Back (We Are Robin)

WeAreRobin_Issue2_Cover Issue #2 from DC Comics is hitting the shelves so we are going to take a look at where we left of last month. (Click here for a list of what’s coming out tomorrow.  We split the list into two groups: new single issues and new HC, TP, and Reprints.)

Duke Thomas is a foster kid thanks to the antics of the Joker in Batman: Endgame story line.  His parents were caught up by the Joker’s zombie toxin and were never found after everything was put back to “normal.”  Until they are found, Duke is spending most of his time bouncing from one foster family to another, with the help of his case worker, Dr. Leslie Thompkins.  Leslie is having a hard time keeping him out of juvie due to his run ins with the law, but she believes in him.  She has just set Duke up in a new foster home but as soon as he arrives, he sneaks out to search for his parents.  It’s been said a lot of the people who were affected by the Joker’s toxin ended in homeless shelters or the sewers.  The whole time he is running around, he is being watched and tracked by a group who seem to have ties to the Robin moniker.

Duke stumbles upon a shanty town and it appears that someone is giving a speech about rising up, that their “king demands that the charges be set by tomorrow night” and that the Gotham Hall of Records will go first.  Duke is disWeAreRobin_Issue1_Covercovered to be an outsider and the citizens of the shantytown chase after him.  The gang of kids who have been tracking him come to the rescue.  We are left with a mysterious person watching everything via security cameras, commenting how this group looks to be the future of Gotham.

Issue #2 is on the shelves and there is so much to look forward to from Lee Bermejo and the rest of the team.  Who is this mysterious overseer?  Who are these kids that make up the Robin gang?  Who is the king of the shantytown? Who knows what answers we will find?

About OxenTrot

During the day, I am a mild mannered desk jockey who helps to manage a large IT company.  At night, I am a family man, who is insanely in love with his wife and a proud daddy to an amazing girl.  But in the pre-dawn hours, as most everyone else is still asleep, I am my alter ego.  During that time, I am: OxenTrot. Ox was a call sign bestowed upon me while I was an active duty United States Marine, mainly in tribute to the fact that I was a major gym rat. After 5 years and three tours of duty, I reentered the civilian world.  My call sign was replaced by my actual name but the Ox still lived inside. As I began to adapt to my new life, I also began to take on new adventures, such as starting a family, getting a “big boy” job and taking on endurance sports.
