Tim Drake, the third hero and sidekick to Batman to wear the mantle of Robin, will return to Gotham City for the first time since coming out as bisexual in Batman: Urban Legends #10, on sale December 14.

After his appearance in issue #6  where he revealed that he was bisexual and left fans wanting more, Robin comes back to Gotham just in time for the holidays in the feature-length story ‘A Carol of Bats.’

Batman: Urban Legends #10 also features three additional stories starring Nightwing, Azrael, and Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum.

Written by Meghan Fitzmartin, the feature-length story “A Carol of Bats” features art by Alberto Albuquerque Jimenez (pencils/inks), Nick Filardi (colors), and Pat Brosseau (Letters). This continues Tim’s journey of self-discovery from Urban Legends #6, and sees Tim balancing his drive to fight crime with his desire to be a great partner. Amidst the ashes of a devastated Gotham City and Fear State, Tim Drake comes back to Gotham City to help Batman and Nightwing try and put the city back together again after its devastation at the hands of The Scarecrow and The Magistrate. Along the way, Tim tries to get Batman out of a Scrooge-level funk, where the Dark Knight has serious doubts about if he’s failed Gotham City, and if its citizens will stop being scared and angry enough to have hope for the future.

“The response to Tim’s story has been more than I could have hoped” said writer Fitzmartin. “It’s always exciting to share Tim’s journey with fans, and close 2021 with this special holiday story in Batman Urban Legends #10.”
