I'll get the tissues...




Artist's Note: The drawing above is a continuation from this story:

I don't know if I'll ever deal with the details of the death of Tim's parents in the webcomic. I'll say enough that they both died at the same time, leaving this Tim orphaned at a young age, even younger than Bruce's was (Tim's about six years old).

I see the Cabbage Patch story as a way for Tim to cope with his loss and to help him make a connection with his new family.

Some background on the character Tim Drake:

In the DC continuation, both his parents were murdered. Janet Drake was poisoned by Obeah Man and a few years later, Jack Drake was killed by Captain Boomerang.

In the animated series, Tim was amalgamation of Tim Drake and Jason Todd of the DC continuation, giving that Tim's origins similar to Jason's. Tim's father was known as Steven 'Shifty' Drake and was a small-time criminal who worked for (and was killed later by) Two-Face.

Wow, I didn't know that the Animated Series Tim was different than the DC comics Tim. I knew who Jason was and simply thought they left him out because Joker killing him may have been too serious a subject matter for kids (the pansies). I wish they would have done it anyway, maybe as a movie, but then again we do have that now. Not in the Animated Serious continuum though. I wish that series still had sequels, btw. I guess JLAU killed it or something. Or maybe Teen Titans was simply the first thread to unravel the chain (but I loved TT, so I don't care). Wish Static Shock had more screen time in other shows like JLAU (or did he?) or Batman Beyond since supposedly Static was going to be some big player in the future of heroes (or did he?).

It's the bow ties, that's what got me.

Batman and Sons reminds me of Calvin and Hobbes in that they're both really funny and they both come out of nowhere and make these really touching strips, like this one.

I like that Tim is a lot happier in your continuity than the official one.
