Today in Comics History, June 14, 1988: Happy birthday, Ragged Robin!

Born on this day in 1988: Kay aka Ragged Robin, cell member of The Invisibles and professional Jill Thompson impersonator!

from The Invisibles (1994 series) #23 (DC/Vertigo, August 1996), script by Grant Morrison, pencils by Steve Yeowell, inks by Dick Giordano, colors by Daniel Vozzo, letters by Clem Robins

But then how (you ask) is Robin in her twenties in the 1990s when the events of The Invisibles take place?

Easy! She's a time traveller from the year 2012. See? Time travel: it explains everything.

from The Invisibles (1997 series) #6 (DC/Vertigo, July 1997), script by Grant Morrison, pencils and inks by Phil Jimenez, inks by Keith Aiken, colors by Rick Taylor, color separations by Heroic Age, letters by Todd Klein

So happy birthday, Ragged Robin! If time traveling entitles you to two cakes, please may I have one?

The future one, or the more chocolatey one, I'm not fussy.
