Tim Drake Recommendations

I have been a Jason and Dick fan for the longest and like Damian but I would like to get into Tim Drake. Any reading recommendations?

Knightfall. Just a great story and must-read anyway but it’s where I first appreciated Tim Drake.

I first started to really appreciate Tim Drake pretty late, in James Tynion’s stories. I’d recommend starting with DETECTIVE COMICS (2016).

Anything by Chuck Dixon with Tim was excellent.

I would say Chuck Dixon is the most underrated comic writer ever, nearly doesn’t get enough credit for the stuff he did for Batman and The Batfamily as a whole

Detective Comics #826! Joker kidnaps Robin and it’s up to Tim to find a way to stay alive. Excellent issue by Paul Dini and Don Kramer!
