    Robin OYL begins next month, written by Adam Beechen and art by Karl Kerschl for issues #148 and #149. Freddie Williams will take over for issue #150.

    Pictures.

    Who do you think could be framing Robin for the murder of Batgirl? What offer will be coming up for the Boy Wonder which he can not refuse? Where will Robin take place in the Titans? How much will he have changed come OYL?

    Discuss all of it here.

    I'm actually more curious about what the hell comes of the Veteran's offer that ended the pre-OYL Robin run.

    Anyway, about the offer, I think it may be someone really badass but morally ambiguous offering to train Tim. Maybe Deathstroke or Cain or Lady Shiva. I could see any of them framing him for the murder of Batgirl as a test to see if he's worthy of their training. Granted, this is based on nothing more than speculation and my wish for Tim to become a better fighter to complement his already incredible mind.

    I'm really looking forward to Kerschl's art on Robin post-OYL. :)

    I wasn't thinking on gettign this along with Nightwing. Should I or maybe wait for the reviews or TPB?

    I'm gonna take a guess; I'm gonna need the last three issues of Batgirl aren't I?

    Probably not. I think all of the OYL issues will explain the OYL status quo. They're supposed to be jumping-on points, after all.

    I don't think it'll be Deathstroke, only cause it seems he'll be fairly busy during OYL with Green Arrow. But then again, it's just your view of seeing it as you said. The end of the issue where Veteran asks him if he's made up his decision, definitely left me on the edge. Veteran for sure will play a big role in Robin, and who knows he could be the one behind the whole framing....Just adding some more speculation ofcourse. Shiva is someone to look out for,
    considering she put Cass in the Lazarus Pit and then answered her questions about being her mother. After we see Shiva ordering Batgirl to kill her.

    Looks like he's striking a Batman pose....

    I think Robin might've accepted the Veteran's offer and become a little more hardened as a result of working with soldiers for the past year. Batman's comics imply that their relationship has changed post-OYL, and that could be why.

    Aren't Batman and Robin going to be working together somewhere away from Gotham during 52 while Question takes care of Gotham? And then they come back OYL?

    It's freakin sweet.

    No, Veteran is already offering Robin the offer to join him which we'll see what he said to him when OYL begins next month. Sides, the description for the May issue states the new offer he receives is one he may not live to refuse. It's someone else behind it all, atleast I think so....

    Apparently I'm the odd man out. I hate his new costume more and more every time I see it.
    Why does it suck? If Robin does work for the Veteran, it'll be contained within 52 so you wouldn't even have to read about it. We already know his post-OYL status is that he's on the run from the cops.
    Was it specified that they'd be together? I thought they were both just supposed to be away from Gotham for 52 and come back at the start of the OYL issues. Robin could've been off on missions for the Veteran as easily as he could've been working with Batman during 52.

    I wasn't sure. That's why I asked. I think I might have read it somewhere but I could have just as easily dreamt it up.

    And I really don't like his new costume.

    Your not alone Corp. I hate the "new" look too because DC was too lazy to actually make something new. If anything, he looks more like a child to me. Honestly, who decides when making a post-60s costume to include underware on the outside? Its 2006 for godsake. If the covers implys anything, he's more cartoonish than ever.

    I wouldn't. DC books are usually pretty good at tying up loose ends.
