Steph also meets Cass for the first time in Robin #88, in addition to her first teamup with Batgirl in #20

I really like the effects of this storyline, even though I’m annoyed of course with Batman’s mistake in doing so without telling Tim first.

I think Steph is definitely ready, though of course different writers disagree, and write her as incompetent. But Dixon wrote her as a good, competent vigilante, and so I think she was definitely ready. I think Batman should DEFINITELY have stuck with that decision, but unfortunately, Bruce Wayne: Murderer would happen in a few months, and destroy all of the connections he had to his family for a long time, and he wouldn’t really get it back until after War Games, possibly not even until after his “death” in RIP.

My own questions: Do people like artist Pete Woods’s style in these issues, or prefer his current style seen in things like Justice League by Priest?

There’s a LOT going on in Tim’s life, and so reading these issues for Steph (which is what I do) can be a bit confusing. I’m sure Steph felt the same way!

I’m always tempted to skip over Tim’s scenes. I’ve never liked him all that much. :stuck_out_tongue:
