"I’m not batman, I have friends." Pre52 Tim Drake was the best D:
Young Justice #8
I’m seeing a pattern…
So I put together a sort of TimKon Starter Pack of comics that I think cover the base of the Tim/Kon relationship.
This works best if you have an idea of what’s going on in the universe in general, but I added a little more explanation to this list. A basic reading order is included in the zip. All files are cbr/cbz. Tell your friends, spread the joy, fire up your fic!
Short TimKon Canon Reading List:
World’s Finest Three #1-2 - Tim and Kon’s first meeting.
[Then comes Young Justice, which is optional because it’s not very shippy but it’s super-cute. Then some angst happens and Young Justice disbands.] (not included)
Teen Titans (vol 3) #1-2, 6, 13-14, 24-26, 32-33- these issues have a lot of Tim and Kon interaction and also cover a lot of important plot points that come up in fanfics.
Infinite Crisis #6 (Kon’s death) (optional, mostly here just to keep up with the plot) (not included)
[After Kon’s death, Tim does not deal well and tries to clone him.]
Teen Titans #37- The culmination of Tim’s attempts to clone Kon.
[Then time passes, Tim continues to be super-angsty and quits the Teen Titans and Batman “dies” and Tim becomes Red Robin and goes on a quest to find him, but Kon comes back to life!]
Adventure Comics #3 - Kon goes to find Tim after he returns.
Red Robin #9 - Kon visits Tim in Gotham (hugs!).
Red Robin #20 & Teen Titans #92 - Tim joins up with the Teen Titans again.
