6:53 THEME – CHUCK DIXON

Dixon is a master world builder and wrote a multitude of mainly Batman related titles in the ’90s and early 2000s. He expanded the lives of Tim Drake and Dick Grayson, co-created Bane and made an all-female series a huge success in Birds of Prey.

 

Bat Books Ending

This is sad news. DC have confirmed that Robin, Nightwing and Birds of Prey will all be finishing up in February, presumably as part of their Batman R.I.P finale, and its after effects. They may very well continue in different forms, (like a new anthlogy) or new titles though, and I guess at least one of the characters appearing in those books may become Batman, if Bruce Wayne retires, or whatever. I’d like it to be Tim Drake (the current Robin) with Spoiler as a female Robin again, but who knows? It would certainly get the press’ attention, and DC need that desperately.
