    Tim Drake may be the current Robin, but he wasn't the first. That honor goes to Dick Grayson, now Nightwing, whose untold earliest adventures as the Boy Wonder, sidekick to the mysterious Batman, are now revealed in ROBIN: YEAR ONE, a 4-part Prestige Format miniseries co-written by Chuck Dixon (ROBIN, NIGHTWING) and Scott Beatty (GREEN LANTERN 80-PAGE GIANT), with art by Javier Pulido (The Incredible Hulk) and Robert Campanella (BATGIRL). Already entrenched in the Batcave and his official training complete, young Dick Grayson has a world of experience to gain, and a ton of new enemies to make, beginning with the truly insane Mad Hatter! Ultimately, over the course of YEAR ONE, Robin crosses paths with many crazed villains in Batman's Rogues Gallery and makes a new deadly enemy for himself, one whose impact will be felt in the present-day pages of NIGHTWING! ROBIN: YEAR ONE explores many facets of Dick's early days as Robin, including his struggle to live a "normal" childhood while continuing to serve not only as the Boy Wonder, but also as the ward of one of the world's most visible, richest and eligible businessmen, Bruce Wayne. Not unlike BATMAN: YEAR ONE, which became an enduring classic because of its account of a hero in the making, ROBIN: YEAR ONE will reveal how Dick became the hero he is today.

    Welcome to the Bat-family 0

    After Dick Grayson's introduction to Batman in Dark Victory, Year One expands on the personal examination of the young Bat-family. No longer mourning his parents' deaths, Dick settles into high school; Alfred, uncomfortable with the path Bruce has allowed Dick to set out on, helps the young teenager settle into his new life; and Bruce... Well, Bruce stays largely out of Dick's way until the final pages.While we don't get much of a chance to examine Bruce's viewpoint, this allows Robin to fight c...

    Yep, I picked this one up! The same team did a sequel that was great, so of course I had to get their earlier story!Robin has recently appeared, and now the criminal element has to worry about two crime fighters taking them down. This news reaches Two-Face, who wants to be updated on the information. (Foreshadowing...)Elsewhere, the Mad Hatter is hired by some pedophile politician from a foreign country to round up young girls with his mind control technology. In the end, Robin manages to solve ...
