A Lonely Place of Dying is a Batman storyline written by Marv Wolfman with illustrations by George Perez and Jim Aparo. It's published as a crossover between Batman and New Titans. The story introduces Tim Drake, who becomes the third Robin following the death of Jason Todd in A Death in the Family.
Traumatized by the death of Robin (Jason Todd), the Dark Knight Detective descends into a brutal existence. But this blind quest for retribution has extremely hazardous mental and physical consequences as a careless and unhinged Batman suffers injury after injury. Deducing the connection between Bruce Wayne and Batman as well as the repercussions that the murder of the Boy Wonder are having on him, a teenaged Tim Drake seeks out Dick Grayson, the original Robin, in a desperate attempt to reunite the Dynamic Duo. An emotional and intense adventure, A Lonely Place of Dying illustrates the true significance of Batman and Robin's relationship and also introduces a new Boy Wonder.
