Burton's Batman isn't the only Bat-thing celebrating its 25th birthday this year. 2014 also marks the 25th anniversary of the first appearance of Tim Drake, the third Robin! I have been a BIG fan of the character since his debut, and with his story starting in the same year that Burton's Batman hit the big screen, I have always linked the 2 together in my mind. In fact, according to Neal Adams (who designed Drake's costume), the whole motivation behind the re-creation of Robin at the time was his possible appearance in the Burton films (with many sources reporting that the name Tim Drake was in fact an homage to Tim Burton).
Why am I telling you all of this? Well, with the character's formative years being tied so closely with our beloved Batman '89, I figured it might be nice to give Robin his own little slice of the site. If you'll take a look over at the sidebar to your left, you'll see a little version of this image:
Clicking that little side button will bring up all of the "Robin Relics" posts here at the blog devoted to the Tim Drake Robin character. Just like with Burton's Batman, these posts will include a variety of content- Magazine articles, toy reviews, promotional items, etc. The posts won't be as frequent as the movie-themed stuff of course, but I hope that they will provide a little variety to the page and add to the overall life of the site. Hope you guys enjoy! -James
