TimDrakeGate: DC Edits Teen Titans Trade to Cover Continuity Snafu

DC makes edits to the Teen Titans trade paperback to correct continuity issues.

Many fans have called DC's continuity post-Nu52 reboot a clusterfuck, but perhaps the right term is actually "work in progress." At least, that seems to be how DC is handling the TimDrakeGate controversy, which exploded over the summer at various comic book conventions when DC made official statements on continuity to fandom, generally considered a bad idea, which clarified that Tim Drake never had a stint as Robin, and the current incarnation of the Teen Titans is the first and only. Unfortunately, these statements contradicted what actually appeared in DC's comics.

Well, DC can fix that easily enough. Rich Johnston over at Bleeding Cool has posted some scans of the upcoming Teen Titans trade, which corrects two glaring errors. One is a simple change to call Tim Red Robin instead of Robin. The other removes caption boxes referencing previous Titans incarnations. We're sure that this will settle things once and for all, and won't result in livid fanboys pounding their keyboards as they type angry diatribes about what an affront this is.

The Outhouse applauds these efforts by DC to correct past mistakes, and hopes they will follow this line of thinking to its inevitable conclusion by replacing all Rob Liefeld artwork in its Nu52 trades with blank pages.
