Canon Recs & Resources  
With the DCU Universe being spread out over so many titles and, let’s face it, so many decades, trying to keep track of all that canon can be exhausting.

This post is designed to make things a little easier, but it needs your help!

Is there a particular storyline that you think is a defining moment for a character featured in a DCU-Memes prompt post?

Has reading about a specific pairing in a DCU-Memes prompt post got you hungering to see them in action together and you need recommendations on which title to start with?

Is there a certain series that isn’t connected with any current DCU-Memes prompt posts but you think it’s awesome and want to share it with the world?

Post your questions and suggestions here!

Tim And Kon As Teammates (Buyer's Guide 2)
Besides these team books, there are few more titles (both individual issues and collected trades) that feature Tim and Kon working together.

World's Finest 3
As featured in the first comment on this post. I've yet to find these 2 issues in any comic book shop I've visited, but that doesn't mean they're not still out there.
Superboy 85
Although this issue revolves around Kon's first encounter with Cass Cain, it starts with some laugh-out-loud banter between Kon and Tim. Kon is quite adamant in his belief that the entire Batfamily should talk like they just stepped out of Adam West's Batman tv show.
Robin: Tales Of Fire And Madness
The story will probably make more sense if you read the entire trade, but the Tim/Kon interaction is all in issue 141, when Tim asks Kon to pose as Robin to help maintain his secret identity. More banter, more of Kon abusing the word "chum".
Final Crisis: Legion Of 3 Worlds
I wouldn't call this essential, since Kon is only featured towards the end, but it does show his resurrection for those wishing to read it.
Superboy: Boy Of Steel Collecting the relevant stories from Adventure Comics after Kon's return. You could choose to only buy issue 3, which is the most Tim/Kon heavy issue, but I'd highly recommend going for the entire book if you're a Kon fan.
Red Robin: Collision
After Final Crisis, the Robin identity was passed to Damian Wayne and Tim became Red Robin. This is the second trade from the Red Robin title, which as a whole is extremely enjoyable, but if you're looking for individual issues then check out issue 9 where Kon visits Gotham and there's some adorable Tim/Kon hugging.
♥ On The Shoulders Of Titans - Not yet collected in trade, this two-part storyline consists of Red Robin 20 and Teen Titans 92. Tim works with the Teen Titans for the first time since Kon and Bart's return, having to deal with Damian also being on the team. There's a lovely Teen Titans group hug and Kon gushing about how Tim will always be his Robin.

This isn't a comprehensive list of their interactions, but it should give potential readers a starting point and a guide to what's actually available to buy.
