"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today we look at Robin dealing with the possible death of an enemy…
In Robin #46, by writer Chuck Dixon and artists Cully Hamner and Sal Buscema, Robin teams up with Sheriff Shotgun Smith to corner a gang of street thugs. Robin captures two of them, but the third is a familiar face – Young El, a man (heck, a boy) who killed a boy at Robin’s school and got away with it.
The fates are not so kind to Young El tonight, and we see how Robin deals with it…
Man, Dixon really “got” Tim Drake, didn’t he?
The empathy of Tim was usually the best part about him.
Strong stuff (great art by an unlikely art team, too!).
