Review:
The set of two linked stories about Tim and Bart are, perversely, sweet - perversely, because it's not portrayed as an entirely healthy relationship, or even as the typical comics romance (which I would almost never brand as healthy). The characters experience anger, grief and other strong emotions so expressively, that I was impressed with the depth Glossing had given them. Tim was still Tim, and Bart still Bart, but they were both a bit more than they've been written/drawn in the past. 

Basic storyline: Tim and Bart get together almost accidentally, stay together despite some realistic disapproval from some of their peers, and weather losses. Extra points for the Bart-as-Tim's-sidekick bits.

[For those not in the know: Tim = Robin no. 3, Bart = Impulse and later Kid Flash.]

Link: "No Dull Flesh", and "Whatever Life You Wear".
