I don't have too many examples of BTAS Robin art in my collection, not because I don't like it, anything but, but because I have a heard time finding pages. So I'm delighted to have acquired this one!

Terry Burchett both drew and inked this terrific page from Batman and Robin Adventures #8, a comic set in the world of "Batman: The Animated Series", and here showcasing Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, who have caught our plucky acrobat turned superhero trying to stop them raiding the zoo to liberate Harley's "Babies", Mr J's pet hyena's Bud and Lou... Perhaps her should have waited for backup!.

I love Dick's expression after the kiss, somewhere between "Stupefied" and "Twitterpated", and the Harley/Ivy banter is top-notch (as one would expect from a Paul Dini and Ty Templeton script).

It's a great little story as Robin proves that all those crime fighting skills he learned from Batman can also be used for COMMITTING crimes when under Ivy's influence, and Harley's jealousy of Robin being Ivy's new favourite is adorable. I'm not sure if it's been posted here, but I'll think about that if no one else has.

Oh, and before anyone worries, there's no indication that Ivy used Robin for anything other than plotting crimes and the occasional sensual massage, so he may be under the effects of a sort of super-roofie, but she doesn't take sleazy advantage of him.

And fond as Ivy seems to be of Batman, she's certainly had her thorns into his Batboys a time or two, be it Dick

Or sometimes Tim!

Though that one didn't end too well!

And these little commissions are mine... (I have posted these before, but what the heck!)

Before (By Jeff Moy)

(Love his manfull resisting of her charms)

Going to have to see if I can commission him sometime.

There are far too few imperiled Black Canary pictures on that site (I assume, I'm making a point here), which will have to b rectified next pay day!

Oh, pish! What kind of 21st Century villain with my thumb of the pulse of the post-internet age would I be if I couldn't imperil more than one blond at a time?

And then, if I recall that story correctly, Ivy has Dick stripped down to just his manties and basically acting has her cabana boy for a while.

Harley gets totally jealous.

Didn't Ivy flirt with a few times in show? (Dick Robin.) I kow she exchanged glances with him when Harley kissed Batman.

Would love to see more of this.

Wasn't Dick Grayson in college when he was still Robin in the show?

What can I say but "Trust Ms Isley`s taste in men" :)

And woot! I read that DCAU story and it was fab. Loved it for the sole reason that Robin was her man-salve and Harley cured him out of sheer jealousy!

I don't know if it's been posted on here, but it was posted more than once on the other board.
And I dunno, Ivy's not being THAT much of a cougar here. I mean, she's what, in her early-to-mid thirties? And DCAU Dick's midway through college - it's not THAT much of an unbridgeable age gap.

This is a great scan, thanks! I always forget that I have to pick up these old trade paperbacks if I can. Nobody is immune to Dick Grayson...nobody!

Anyone know where I can find them?

Icon, did we meet on livejournal a couple of years ago? Or am I just imagining things? You wouldn't be a fan of Smallville or Supernatural would you? Do you know tariel?

Ivy and Robin kissing will forever be tainted by Batman and Robin. :(

Wow, congrats on your acquisition! I'd have to say, that issue never gets old. And we get to see shirtless Dick there, IIRC.
