    What are we calling this?
    Three comics that I don't consider canon.

    Sadly they are and it's about time fandom gets it. This is who Bruce is.

    I liked the way King handled it. Having Bruce tell us he is a child abuser while being ignorant of the fact himself.

    The only writer who doesn't use Tim as a punching bag is Bendis.

    It's still really bad, but it's not the worst. That's the maximum of time I want to even talk about this mess.
    Same review. I appreciate the time taken to finally explain some things, although the fact that it was through narration boxes and not just talking felt kind of weird. But that's not the first time in the run.

    I liked the Bullock part (favorite). And the Joker twist.
    Retro315 no more. Anonymity is so 2005.

    Luckily, 'Drake' is also another word for dragon.

    No it really isn’t Ooc moments don’t make a character if it did then everyone in the bat family would be massive pieces of shit including your favorite. What I do find annoying is how the families out of character moments are hand waved,ignored or called out for being ooc but Bruce’s are harped on.

    I know, but that clearly isn't what came to most people's minds when they read that comic.

    Unfortunately, it's just moments with Bruce. There are years at a time where he's emotionally abusive. It's piling up on some other characters, too, but not as badly as on Bruce.

    Is drake dragon in a particular language? It's certainly not the most common usage in English (though yes, I have occasionally heard it for dragons "dragon" is more popular for them). And drake is a duck in English, and that is the most common usage. Fits the bird theme. Also, and more importantly, it's Tim's last name, which makes it really dumb as a code name. I dislike "Troia", too.

    A reminder that Jason jobbed hard to Bane in "I am Bane" (along with Dick and Damian). Jason being in this issue wouldn't have made any difference.

    Drake was an old english word for dragon in the British Isles. Its a bit old fashioned now though.

    I'm a big fan of King's Batman but this issue was my least favorite of his run. Glad JR JR's time is over and hoping for much better tidings from the last 4 issues.

    As far as I can recall, it's an specific kind of European dragon. Central European, I think. But maybe it's from the isles, like @katana500 said, I'm not sure anymore.
    This is a signature. It has letters on it, and those letters form words. Words like these. I will not quote anything because I'm uninspired but, I read a lot: I could!

    And this is my Tumblr. Sometimes I post stuff there.

    Sadly I doubt anyone will think of Dragon's when they think of Tim. At least Duck's are slightly cooler than Pigeon or Seagull
