Official Press Release
ROBIN #124 (JAN040221), featuring the story "Good Parenting," has sold out at DC Comics. Written by Bill Willingham with art by Francisco Rodriguez de la Fuente and Aaron Sowd and a cover by Jason Pearson, this issue arrived in stores on March 17 and sold out by March 22.
"The good news: It's nice to have one's work in demand, and I hope it inspires higher orders on the following issues, where all of the really neat stuff happens," says Willingham. "The bad news: This storyline never could have occurred if Tim Drake had only thought to put a lock on his back-of-the-closet secret compartment. When will you teenagers learn that you aren't nearly as smart as you think you are and your folks aren't nearly as dumb as you think they are? Haven't we inflicted enough After School Specials on you to get at least that much across?"
"This storyline is a very powerful, and we're confident that reader interest will continue to grow as they see what's coming," says Bob Wayne, DC's VP - Sales & Marketing. "Now's the time for retailers to increase their orders on upcoming issues of ROBIN."
Adding to the momentum in the BATMAN group are the new sell-outs of NIGHTWING #91 (JAN040220) and BIRDS OF PREY #64 (DEC030242) and #65 (JAN040217).
DC has no plan to go back to press on these issues at this time. Please note that copies still may be available at retail.
