Yost Wraps His “Red Robin” Run

“That’s the great thing about Batman, and Robin for that matter,” Yost explained. “They can stand toe-to-toe with these gods! Tim Drake doesn’t hold a candle power-wise to Superboy or Kid Flash or Wonder Girl, but he’s the leader. He’s the one they all go to. The respect for these characters within that community is just amazing.”

Red Robin #12 heralds Christopher Yost’s departure not only from the title but from the DC Universe as well. Additionally, the writer has just two other books currently solicited from Marvel before his departure from the Marvel Universe following the involvement of “X-Force” in “Second Coming:” “X-Men: Second Coming Hellbound” and “X-Force: Sex and Violence” before writer departs there as well for a new opportunity. But what is this strange force that has pulled Christopher Yost away from comics? “I cannot talk about it,” he said. “At the same time though, I’m working on the Avengers animated series, which is going to be phenomenal! It’s going great, we’re wrapping up writing the second season now. I’ve got to say that, as a fan, it’s everything you want out of an Avengers series.”

As for “Red Robin,” the writer is extremely happy with the way his run concluded and is especially appreciative for all the help from the fans and his editorial team. “I really want to thank everybody for giving it a try,” Yost said. “When they relaunched all the Bat-titles, ‘Red Robin’ seemed like the one that people were unsure of. People gave it a try and they hung in there and were really supportive of it. It’s done really well and I can’t thank everyone enough for being a part of it. From Mike Marts to Ramon and Marcus and Janelle Siegel and the fans! I’ve been really lucky to have people really respond to it.”
