DC Celebrates 80 Years of Robin with a 100-Page One Shot

Since the character’s introduction in Detective Comics #38 on March 6, 1940, Robin has become an icon to millions of comic book fans, establishing the “sidekick” as a permanent part of comic book lore. Since a young Dick Grayson donned the distinctive yellow cape and domino mask, many have taken on the mantle of Robin, joining The Batman in his war on crime, while also growing into their own and taking on new adventures, both solo and as part of other super-teams like the Teen Titans, the Justice League and others.

On March 11, 2020, DC celebrates Robin’s 80th anniversary with a landmark one-shot, Robin 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular. This instant collectible includes stories from comics’ greatest Robin writers, paying tribute to the character in various guises, including Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake, Stephanie Brown and Damian Wayne. The Talent list for these stories reads like a whos-who list of comic luminaries, such as Marv Wolfman, Tom Grummett, Chuck Dixon, Scott McDaniel, Devin Grayson, Dan Jurgens, Norm Rapmund, Tim Seeley, Tom King and Mikel Janin, James Tynion IV, Peter J. Tomasi, Judd Winick and others.

In addition to a dynamic cover by Lee Weeks, hardcore fans and collectors can also look forward to eight variant covers spotlighting Robin throughout the decades, drawn by some of comics’ premier artists:

  • 1940’s variant cover by Jim Lee and Scott Williams
  • 1950’s variant cover by Julian Totino Tedesco
  • 1960’s variant cover by Dustin Nguyen
  • 1970’s variant cover by Kaare Andrews
  • 1980’s variant cover by Frank Miller
  • 1990’s variant cover by Jim Cheung
  • 2000’s variant cover by Derrick Chew
  • 2010’s variant cover by Yasmine Putri

An equally impressive collection of artistic talent will honor Robin in a series of tribute images celebrating different incarnations of the character such as Kenneth Rocafort, Nicola Scott, Andy Kubert, and Frank Miller.

The Robin 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1 is a prestige format comic book retailing for $9.99 and available at local comic retailers and digital retailers on March 11, 2020
