CBR: Nicieza & Tomasi on Robin & Nightwing R.I.P.

Posted by Bob Tilley Thursday, 6 November 2008

The news of DC cancelling the current run of Robin, Nightwing and BoP is getting mixed opinions on were this leave the current Batman family titles after Grant Morrison's R.I.P. run comes to a close.


Well CBR were able to get an invterview with the current writers of Robin (Fabian Nicieza) and Nightwing (Peter Tomasi), to talk about what this means for their leading men Tim Drake and Dick Grayson in the hotly rumored and soon-to-be-hotly contested “Battle for the Cowl” storyline.

Fabien Nicieza is of course disappointed to see his run on “Robin” come to an end but said he was aware of the plans from “the moment he was offered the assignment.” “Everything I’ve done was to prepare Tim Drake for the end of his series and the beginning of the next phase in his life,” Nicieza told CBR.
The writer added that he’s not leaving the Batverse come March. “I am confident you’ll see my name in the credits of a Bat-Family title the month after the ‘Robin’ series ends,” confirmed Nicieza.

Peter Tomasi, who is also writing January’s “Batman and the Outsiders Special” #1, revealed he will be taking over ongoing writing duties for “Outsiders” as well, following his last issue of “Nightwing.”

The long-time editor turned writer told CBR he’s not disappointed about the end of “Nightwing,” because, as was the case of Nicieza, he knew this was in the works for some time. “I don’t think the word ‘disappointment’ factors in for me, since everyone here at Bat Central knew that this was in the works,” Tomasi said. “I’ve had a blast writing ‘Nightwing’ and really enjoyed being able to contribute a small part to his 153-issue run. Dick Grayson is a great character and my only real ‘disappointment’ comes from not being able to tell more stories about him.”

“But just remember, from endings come beginnings, so all you Wingnuts take heart.”

Asked which of the two characters deserved to be the next Batman, Nicieza teased, “Who says either one will be the next Batman?”

Tomasi put it this way, “Does Dick, in my mind deserve to be Batman? As my buddy Clint Eastwood would say, ‘deserves got nothin’ to do with it.’ Being Batman is not a party, it’s not something anybody in their right mind would want to do with their life. It’s about having to do it, about serving the common good, putting others before you. Does Dick Grayson fit that bill? Of course he does, without question. But will it be his face under the cowl when all is said and done? Therein lies the bigger question and the answer to that is several months away.”
