Among the events and festivities that happened was an appearance by newly inducted Hall of Famer George Perez.  Earlier this year, George had a heart attack and, for now, has had to stop doing conventions until his doctor has cleared him... but he was able to make an appearance today and signed autographs and posed for pictures. He has lost some weight and joked about having to buy some new clothes because nothing fits ...

    In Detective Comics #968, Tim will finally escape his current imprisonment at the hands of the mysterious Mr. Oz (whose identity will be revealed soon in the pages of Action Comics). However, as DC’s solicits tease, getting home is not quite the same thing as surviving the experience.

    The arc’s title, “A Lonely Place of Living,” is a play on Drake’s DC Comics introduction in 1990’s “A Lonely Place of Dying.” The storyline, written by Marvel Wolfman and drawn by George Perez and Jim Aparo, was a crossover event between Batman and Teen Titans, and served to bring a new Robin (Drake) into Batman’s life following the murder of Jason Todd years earlier. The story was designed to illustrate how important Robin was to helping Batman regain his humanity in the face of Todd’s death. 

    Check out the cover — which homages the final chapter of the aforementioned “A Lonely Place of Dying” storyline — and solicitation text for the Tim Drake’s return, below.

    Exclusive DC First Look: September's Action Comics and Detective Comics Titles
    by Russ Burlingame | June 13, 2017


    DC has provided ComicBook.com with an exclusive first look at the solicitation text for Action Comics #987 and #988,and Detective Comics #965, and the standard covers for Action Comics #987 and Detective Comics #965.

    The cover for Detective Comics is particularly interesting, as the image is an homage to George Perez's cover to Batman #441, the middle chapter to "A Lonely Place of Dying," the story arc in which Drake was introduced as the third Robin.

    The upcoming Detective story is titled "A Lonely Place of Living," and sees Drake trying to decide between escaping Mr. Oz's prison or staying behind -- a decision made harder by a surprising revelation that fans will have to wait to fully grasp the gravity of.

    “A Lonely Place Of Living” part one! It’s the story you’ve demanded: Where in the world (or otherwise) is Tim Drake? Red Robin faces a crossroads…escape the most devious prison ever devised, or find himself abandoned beyond time and space for all eternity! Not much of a choice, right? But when he finds out just who is locked in there with him, Tim’s world will change in ways he never imagined! This is one of the biggest stories of the REBIRTH era, setting the stage for an explosive DETECTIVE COMICS epic!
