Robin II: The Joker's Wild (Part One of Four)
Robin II The Joker's Wild - Part One of Four Author:Chuck Dixon, Tom Lyle, Bob Smith ROBIN HOLOGRAM EDITION - COVER C OF FIVE DIFFERENT COVERS. Some of the best characterization ever done in comics has been in DC’s Robin, protégé of Batman. In said tale, the youth gets a baptism of fire, so to speak, when he matches wits with Batman’s greatest nemesis, “the Clown Prince of Crime”. One significant, yet important, detail kept this... more » from being just another Joker yarn, and that was the fact that Batman was out of town, leaving the Boy Wonder to face an incredibly dangerous foe on his own.
Chuck Dixon is perhaps the most accomplished writer where Robin is concerned, and this is one of the high points of the character’s history, as well as Dixon’s career. The reader sees Tim tackle his own failures and shortcomings, not with self-indulgent whining and “introspection”, in the sometimes-overdone Marvel Comics manner, but by changing and adapting his strategy. In short, they see the character grow into much more than just a “kid sidekick”.« less
