Written by Chuck Dixon and illustrated by Javier Pulido and Marcos Martins ROBIN- YEAR ONE DELUXE EDITION takes place after the events of BATMAN- DARK VICTORY. This collection recounts the beginning of Dick Grayson's career as Robin, the Boy Wonder as Batman trains him in crime-fighting, against the wishes of Alfred.
The devious Two-Face is very interested in recent reports that Batman now has a teenage sidekick. Indeed, Bruce Wayne has taken young Dick Grayson under his tutelage as Robin the Boy Wonder! Alfred Pennyworth is unsure if the inclusion of Dick Grayson into Batman's nightly adventures might not end up in a disaster, but the butler cannot deny the positive influence the lighthearted boy has on his master Bruce Wayne.
Collects ROBIN- YEAR ONE #1-4.
Chuck Dixon's resume includes thousands of scripts for iconic characters like Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Iron Man, the Punisher, the Simpsons, Spongebob Squarepants, G.I. Joe and many others. He is (along with artist Graham Nolan) the creator of the Batman villain Bane, the first permanent addition to the Dark Knight's rogues gallery in forty years and for which he won 1993's Wizard Fan Award for best new character. His graphic novel adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit is a perennial bestseller worldwide. His unprecedented 100-issue run on DC Comics' Robin is considered to be a classic in the comics medium. Chuck's contributions to Marvel Comics' The Punisher are widely acknowledged as integral to that character's development.
