Robin's Death Reflected in Newly-Revealed Batman Covers for March

We've already seen the new cover to Detective Comics #18, due out in March, but apparently that wasn't all DC had been hiding all this time.

The  covers for all of the March issues of the Batman family of titles have been revealed over at Buzzfeed, with almost every title dealing directly with the repercussions of Robin Damian Wayne's death in Batman Incorporated #8 yesterday.

Members of the Batman family are mourning in their own way--even Helena over in Worlds' Finest, who mourns her cross-dimensional half-brother on the cover of that title.

Check them out at right (the standard cover to Batman #18) and below, with a Batman #18 variant by Damian's co-creator Andy Kubert and covers for Batman Inc., Batgirl, Batman & Robin, Nightwing, Worlds' Finest, Catwoman, Red Hood and the Outlaws and Teen Titans.

It's probably worth noting that the Red Hood and the Outlaws cover isn't really specific to the death of Robin, but probably alludes more to the Death of the Family postscript twist that happened in last week's issue of the Lobdell-written title; all four of those characters were at Wayne Manor with Red Hood when it happened. Red Hood and the Outlaws #18, then, is likely to feature a living Damian Wayne, since it presumably picks up immediately following the events of #17.

That Teen Titans cover is a bit odd, isn't it? It almost looks like Tim Drake is smiling. Some will no doubt take that as a sign that he's looking to take on the Robin role, something that he never had in the New 52's continuity, but it's more likely that the smile is just a trick of the eye, and that the artist didn't mean it to come out that way.
