My inner Tim is so not whelmed.

Quick picture of the free sketch I got from Marcus To of Tim Drake and Jason Todd.
Man, I’m so glad I opted to ask for Jason as well. Now I have two of my all time favourite DC characters drawn by one of my all time favourite artists.
Today was a good day.
aaaah, I missed this art <3

Tim Drake in Red Hood and the Outlaws #8
I’ve been avoiding getting into discussions over Red Hood and the Outlaws, and to be honest, I tend to avoid discussing specific issues or runs of comics in general as to be quite honest, it often leads to far more bitching and stress than it’s really worth. I love comics and love certain characters fiercely. I have my opinion and that is not always going to mesh with other peoples.
Does that make me wrong? No. Does it make them wrong? Not in the slightest. I just can’t be bothered with a lot of the bitching and crap that goes on in comic fandoms in general. If I like a character or a particular run of a book, I like them. I should not have to justify why I like them, just like other people should not have to justify themselves for not liking them. Horses for courses and all that.
That said, I can’t help but weigh in on one particular issue- the meeting between Tim Drake and Jason Todd in Red Hood and the Outlaws #8. I’ve seen a heck of a lot of hate for these pages over the last day or so and a lot of people saying that it is entirely out of character for the pair of them. Personally, I don’t think it is. If anything, I find it to be exactly in line with their characters.
Just a warning, this is a long, somewhat incoherent ramble at times. It started out on the topic of RHatO, but sort of descended into me rambling on Jason and Tim and their relationship in general. Feel free to ignore all of this.
And I hasten to add that this is ENTIRELY MY OPINION and I am more than willing to admit that I may well read into things too much, but *shrug*
TL;DR - I really liked this exchange and don’t think that it is out of character. While I’ve had issue with Lobdell, his writing and the series in general at several points in it’s run thus far, this isn’t one of them. I thought it was all really well done.
all the awards, basically.
I’m amused that the people angry at Lobdell about Tim forgiving Jason are the same people irrationally angry at Tim as a character for not forgiving Damian.
So..basically Tim should hate Jason for life for trying to kill him, despite then saying “You’re a decent replacement”, to asking Tim to be Jason’s Robin and Tim breaking Jason out of Jail. They worked out their differences, Jason acknowledged Tim as an equal. And Tim never hated Jason. In his early years Jason was someone he thought about frequently.
But he should forgive Damian for trying to kill him multiple times and acting like a supreme jackass every time they see each other to eventually replacing Tim as Robin because Damian is “just a little Kid”. Damian isn’t just a “little kid”, he’s a kid who has been trained from birth to be an assassin. He’s technically got more fighting and “Batman”-esque experience than Tim. He’s also far more mature than the average ten year old. And he constantly down talks Tim and insults him, never acknowledging Tim is an equal.
It just baffles me. And I hate the tumblr fandom ideal of Damian being this cuddly little ball of misunderstood fluff. He’s a dick. He’s a spoiled angry brat who thinks he’s better than just about everyone and that’s the point of his character. He’s so radically different from the other Robin’s but he was also the dark half of the Batman and Robin duo. He was the Bruce in the dynamic.
let me shake your hand.
