...according to current DC lore, it's the birthday of Dick Grayson! ("Robin" being his mothers pet name for him, since he arrived on the first day of Spring.... That makes more sense when you're American, as your robins are associated with Spring, whereas in Europe they're associated with Christmas and winter.

But first, a word from our stalker... SPONSOR



So with that recommendation... here is a summation of Dick's pre-Crisis origin as shown in the first attempt to summarise a complete history of Batman and his cast - "The Untold Legend of the Batman" from 1980, in this case issue 2 (Five pages from a 21 page story)

Jim Aparo beneath... and that's a GOOD thing )

Some other fols take on m'boy... )

And some fun fanart from DA... )

As the sun sets (or rises depending on time difference) on scans_daily's "Dude in Distress Week" (and thank you to the mods for it and to everyone who contributed such great issues), I thought I'd make a couple of posts featuring my favourites... First post will be some commissions, the second post will be some classic moments from the past, and the third will be my nomination for perfect "Dude in Distress" issue. And yes, I should probably apologise in advance for the sheer Robin-centricity of them, but frankly you should know me better by now! :D If cute guys in pixie boots aren't you're thing, please feel free to skip them all.

Like comics... but not! )

Batmen and Robins', but not the ones you think )

The burning question - Arkham City Nightwing - Fingerstripes or not?

The answer is in )


And a couple more items from Al Bigley which I just got in... First an addition to my "Cypher and Warlock" collection.

"Right Warlock, I can see a mugging down the road, none of the other New Mutants are around, so I need you to make me look like a proper street fighting superhero, someone badass, someone who can hold their own in a fight... I need to be... a caped crusader!"

Self is happy to comply for selfsoulfriendcypherdoug! )

Well, I don't know about you, but I feel better after that!
