Summary
"Holy anniversary, Batman! Every knight needs to have a squire, and every Sherlock Holmes must have a Watson. So it has been with Batman and Robin for seventy-five years. The Boy Wonder's spunk and color balance against the Caped Crusader's seriousness and gloom to create a perfect partnership, a Dynamic Duo. Though Batman has always needed a Robin, it hasn't always been the same Robin. Many different youths have taken up the name and costume, from jovial Dick Grayson to calculating Tim Drake to homicidal Damian Wayne. Each left his or her mark on the character, and today the Boy Wonder is almost as recognizable and beloved as the Dark Knight himself. Collecting stories from Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Carrie Kelley, Tim Drake, Stephanie Brown, Damian Wayne and more, ROBIN THE BOY WONDER: A CELEBRATION OF 75 YEARS compiles the best moments from seven decades of the Dynamic Duo."--Page [4] of cover
