Hello, and welcome to another old school Monday.
This time I read the origin story of one of the most iconic sidekicks in all of comic book history.
I am of course referring to the Boy Wonder himself, Robin.
No other than Dick Grayson, the original Robin.
He is adopted and trained by Batman after his parents, the trapeze artist known as the flying Graysons, fall to their tragic death, and as it is later discover, it was the work of mobsters, which, again, play the role of villains, no quirky costumed villains yet.
This is an early title of the adventure if the dynamic duo, and on this time period, they shared this comic book with another more classic Detectives.
To me, Dick Grayson, is one of my favorite characters of the Bat-Family, but not quite on this personification, it will come later, when he turns into the rogue superhero, Nightwing.
For next week old school Monday, I’ll dabble into the first appearance of what it is consider the most iconic villain in Batman’s history.
See you all next week.
Off to read.
