While attending C2E2 this past weekend I was fortunate to run into so many great creative minds. One such mind was Tim Seeley. He created the book Hack/Slash, and more recently he's been writing for DC Comics with the Nightwing series. He also co-created a book with Battlepug creator Mike Norton titled Revival. He was doing a lot of artwork while at the con so he didn't have much time to talk to us in an interview (however, stay tuned to future episodes of the podcast). But he passed along a card that gave the details of an exclusive surprise Post-Mortem Panel on Sunday in which he debuted the following footage:
From a very early age, I was fascinated with the Robin character in the Batman universe.

He recognized that he would forever be in Bruce's shadow so he left Gotham and became a vision of hope for a new city that needed a savior.
Welcome to the first edition of Ongoing. Ongoing will be my comic book review article that I'll post every week, hopefully twice a week in which I'll pick up a book (new or old) and review it to the best of my ability. I'll also take suggestions from you guys as to what I should be reading and reviewing. And this week I read the conclusion to Geoff Johns Forever Evil storyline. Be warned, there will be spoilers in this review.
Over the years and many, many issues of Batman comic books, there have been quite a few young men (and even women) to call themselves Robin. Some are well known to the general Batman loving public, while others are unknown to the casual fan. When asking a friend if she knew who the second Robin was, she stated “there’s more than one?” And that’s coming from someone who’s fairly geeky in her own right. So today I thought I’d go through the roster of people who have fought beside Batman as Robin and talk about how they got to be in that position.
