Super Robin Boy Wonder
I don't think I've ever seen this issue of Robin scanned before, or even mentioned, which is...a shame. A damned darned dirty shame. Somebody needed to share this glorious gem. I suppose I'm it.
These scans come from Robin #141, very soon after the introduction of Warlock's Daughter. She contacts Tim Drake for assistance in tracking down Robin so that she can kill him, so that she and Tim can be together forever. But never fear! Tim has a plan. A brilliant, brilliant plan. A plan which requires identity porn help from a friend.
Backstory: The War Games storyline resulted in the death of Tim's friend Darla Aquista, who happened to be the daughter of a mob boss, and who also happened to be more than a little hot for Tim. She was shot, and died despite his best attempts to revive her. Her dad dragged her decaying corpse all over the world, trying to find a way to bring her back from the dead. Johnny Warren, aka Johnny Warlock, brought her back at the expense of her father's life, and sent her out to kill Robin (who cost him his hand, at an earlier point, and is the subject of really a hilarious amount of terror on Johnny's part).
I'm not sure why Darla (who is calling herself Laura Fell, at this point) decided Tim was the guy to help her, but she tracked him to Bludhaven and begged him for help. Timmy's a nice guy, so he helps out. He starts by "figuring out" that there's been more than one Robin.
So Tim uses his Totally Normal If Slightly Geeky Boy computer skills to set up a meet with Robin over a superhero bulletin board, and invites Darla for a roof-top picnic. While he's got her alone, he tries to talk her out of committing murder. And then look who shows up!
I'm normally really not a fan of this artist, but I love how this page is laid out. "Robin's" body language and Darla's movements behind Tim's back crack me up every time.
Oh no! Robin! Blown up and thrown off a roof! He must be toast! Unless... Well, it all depends on who Tim picked to play Robin, right? So, who got into Robin's tights?
Daaww. I wish the art was better, here. I would make so many icons. Those middle two panels both make me laugh and fill me with warm fuzzies.
Boys boys boys...They are so manly with their BFFness!
When Kon gets back from the future and meets Red Robin, he's going to be all like..."Dude! WTF?" He should then give him a hug and a wedgie, and I'm not sure in which order.
