i think it’s really sweet how in this issue tim helps damian get rid of the baby tooth he was complaining about and then takes him out for ice cream??? i just wish people would remember scenes like THIS when they talk about the batfam
I think I read this issue wrong…?
it’s okay. a lot of people seem to misinterpret their relationship, like can we talk about the scene where damian wipes tim’s bloody nose with his glove? tim needed tissues but dami had his back :)
omg i forgot about that scene!!! that’s so cute haha!!
i always thought it was kind of ADORABLE how damian noticed tim’s costume was all torn up and helped get him a new outfit for the time being??? like he was a new kid in the cave, had only JUST met bruce, and yet was still was willing to risk upsetting his father by taking a risk and giving tim jason’s costume so that he wouldn’t be cold??? idk i just think that’s really sweet of him
Being two of the strongest members on the team, Nightwing paired Wonder Girl and Superboy together as sparing/workout partners. Conner hates it because he’s embarrassed to train with such an overenthusiastic freshman. (
definitely not because she’s stronger than him) Cassie loves it because she likes to ask Conner all sorts of questions about the original team. Usually Conner just broods and ignores her fangirling, which in turn results in Cassie teasing him for being a such a drama queen.
This is seriously adorable
Cassie, I see you eyeing that clavicle. Kon’s blush is killing me, it’s gone right up his nose haha. Such a gorgeous Cassie too. I love her hair
Love these clear and concise pictures. However, this actually isn’t Death in the Family. This story arc is A Lonely Place of Dying, as Death in the Family took place earlier, and comprised of Jason Todd’s death. A Lonely Place of Dying is where Tim Drake was formally introduced, and also where these comic panels came from. :)
Batman: A Death in the Family
Batman (1940-2011) #441
"I had nightmares about it for years. First about your parents, then about Batman. I kept seeing this dark black thing that swooped out of the sky. No, no — let me start at the beginning.”
I actually really like the retcon of Tim being in the audience — and this whole introduction to it is good because while it’s Tim’s story, the real emotion and pain attached to it really belongs to Dick.
We’ll see the after effects of such a young child witnessing a tragedy like the murder of the Flying Graysons, but even Tim himself in-story is very aware of the fact that the pain is not really his. It belongs to Dick and he acts respectful toward it, and I appreciate that insight.
Tim’s hesitant to even bring it up.
