Meghan Fitzmartin On Tim Drake And Conner Kent, Together

On the DC Comics blog yesterdayJoshua Lapin-Bertone asked the writer of Tim Drake: Robin, Meghan Fitzmartin "During the DC Pride: Tim Drake Special #1, there is a moment where Tim and Conner Kent are holding hands. So, the question is, are you trying to electrocute Twitter?"

Meghan Fitzmartin is quoted as replying "(laughs) I mean, who doesn't love setting a fire under Twitter? That's definitely something that I've heard about and am aware of and it will be more of a discussion point in later issues of certain comic brands that are happening right now." With Joshua's response "That's going to be the line that everyone screencaps and puts on Twitter."

With a little help, possibly. So this is going to come up? Also suggesting a role for Conner Kent in upcoming superhero comics at DC Comics as well. Superman, Son Of Kal-El maybe? The return of a post-Dark Crisis Young Justice?
