Batman’s sidekick Tim Drake, aka Robin, came out as bisexual and scored himself a date all in one issue – and DC Comics fans are absolutely elated.
Drake first appeared in comics in 1989 and is the third character to assume the role of Batman’s vigilante partner Robin. Over the years, he has adopted multiple aliases including Red Robin and even going by the codename Drake before becoming Batman’s sidekick once more.
The character has been shown dating women before and, in the latest comic book, it has been confirmed that he is also open to dating men.
Batman: Urban Legends #6 – by writer Meghan Fitzmartin, artist Belén Ortega, colourist Alejandro Sánchez and letterer Pat Brosseau – is DC’s latest instalment of an ongoing series exploring stories set in Gotham City.
