    An amazing book by the creative duo of Jeff Lemire & Dustin Nguyen that finally dares to answer the age old question, “What if All Star Batman and Robin, the Boy Wonder wasn’t a totally shit book, but actually kind of compelling?” An amazing book by the creative duo of Jeff Lemire & Dustin Nguyen that finally dares to answer the age old question, “What if All Star Batman and Robin, the Boy Wonder wasn’t a totally shit book, but actually kind of compelling?”

    This volume is mostly about the origins of Dick and how he frst wet Bruce and well became Robin and how its connected to his family and the discord between him and Bruce and then meeting the JLA and Titans for the first time and fighting villains alongside them and like assessing his friends too and then fighting Killer Croc and the history behind him and I like how Lemire makes him such a big threat in their lives and well realization of he doesn't have to be alone or dark like Bruce and all.

Its very much the origin of Dick and its awesome and really well done, Lemire doesn't miss the beats and he gives these characters great life and shows the DCU through his lens and I really like how he uses the silver age versions of the teams and its been so long since anyone did that and also the only thing I didn't like was how he showed Bruce as sort of broody and incompetent but other than that its good and the art by Weaver is awesome, the painting and all but maybe not everyone will like it but then again it depends on the individual.

    A time-worn origin tale, but deftly reversed, thrusting the young ward of Bruce Wayne to center stage and showing us the familiar through his unfamiliar eyes. No contradictions, no big reveals, no putting a new spin on the story, just an alteration of perspective that means everything old feel new again.

    Should have been titled "Robin year one". Its very early in the relationship for Robin and Batman. Not only are they trying to figure out how to coexist with each other, they are still learning lots about themselves. I really enjoyed this book. It was a grim reminder on how harsh Batman use to be with the sidekicks and how much both have grown from the first year. There's lots of lessons in boundaries, what it means to be a kid, and being your own person. Absolutely loved the art. Dustin Nguyen w Should have been titled "Robin year one".

There were a few different moments where I stopped in my tracks over how haunting the Bat looked. Reads well as issues and as a volume. You could probably finish in one sitting. I feel like some people may think its kind of short. It definitely feels similar to joker smiles in that way. Just quick look into the day of a life of someone in Gotham. Really, they should collect all Lemires black label stuff in one omnibus, titling "a day in a life" or something.

    There’s something highly disturbing about titling this “Robin & Batman” instead of “Batman & Robin”. I don’t want to hear logical arguments about individuality being a stand-out selling and marketing tool. All I know is that hearing it the other way round feels unnatural. It’s like “Louise and Thelma”, “Scooby and Shaggy”, “Watson and Holmes”, you just don’t do that!

    Une mini série de 3 chapitres, hors continuité, qui revient sur la relation entre Bruce et Dick au tout début. Un apprentissage tant pour l'un que pour l'autre, la naissance du premier costume, la difficulté de se faire confiance ou de communiquer entre les deux... Un petit retour aux sources très sympa surtout grâce à la patte de Dustin Nguyen. Le duo m'avait conquis avec Descender et je suis ravie de les retrouver ici.

Dick ist grade von Bruce Wayne adoptiert worden, doch das Trauma des Verlustes seiner Eltern bleibt. Immer wieder geraten er und sein Adoptivvater aneinander. Bis Killer Croc auftaucht und Batman in höchster Gefahr ist: Zeit für Richard Grayson zu Robin dem Wunderknaben zu werden... Bewertung: "Robin & Batman" hat mich sehr positiv überrascht. Lemire gelingt es einen neuen Spin zur Entstehungsgeschichte des Dynamischen Duos zu bringen. Dabei verändert er die Origin-Story nicht nachhaltig, wie es z.B. die "Erde Eins"-Bände tun, sondern lässt den Leser stattdessen die Perspektive wechseln. Der Fokuswechsel von Batman auf Robin bzw. Dick führt bereits zu einer ganz anderen Erzählung. Zumal uns damit klar wird, dass auch die Beziehung zwischen Richard und Bruce nicht immer einfach war. Man kann sogar sagen, dass der Milliardär eindeutig Probleme bei der Erziehung hat - so wie wir es schon von seiner Zeit mit Jason kennen. Hier erinnert besonders eine Szene an den verlorenen Robin - eine schöne Hommage. Alfred nimmt in diesem Band mal wieder seine Paraderolle als eigentlicher Erziehungberechtigter ein, der sich hingebungsvoll um Richard kümmert und Konflikte zwischen den beiden löst - sehr angenehme Charaktergestaltung. Als Antagonist fungiert Killer Croc alias Waylon Jones, der in seiner Jugend als Zirkusattraktion festgehalten wurde und nun Rache an dem "glücklichen" Zirkusstar Richard Grayson nehmen will. Sehr interessanter Ansatz von Lemire. Für die stimmungsvolle grafische Untermalung sorgt Dustin Nguyen. Diese ist mehr als gelungen. Der ganze Band wirkt wie aus dem Tuschkasten gezeichnet und hält sich in monochromen Tönen, sodass Robins Kostüm umso mehr auffällt. Sehr gelungene Idee und ästhetisch anspruchsvoll. Fazit: Sowohl für Neueinsteiger als auch alteingesessene Fans ein empfehlenswerter Band. Eine neue Perspektive auf die Enstehung Robins. Gesamt: 5/5

    I really liked this comic. I really thought it dealt well with Dick’s trauma, and inner light v dark dynamic among other things. Also I like Killer Croc in this. High 9.3

    Robin & Batman collects issues 1-3 of the DC Comics Black Label series written by Jeff Lemire with art by Dustin Nguyen. An intimate look at Dick Grayson’s early days of adopting the Robin mantle as he tries to prove to Batman that he is ready as a vigilante.

The book focuses on the point of view of Robin as he sets out to prove to an unsure Batman that he is ready for the job. There are some really great emotional scenes sprinkled throughout the book including, but the one that resonated with me the most was after Dick beat up some bullies who tried picking a fight, Alfred comes to the school to meet with the principle and take Dick back home. The relationship between those two characters is very touching. I have always loved seeing how Alfred cares for all the Batfamily members as his own extended family. My one complaint with the book is that it is too short. I wanted more. It feels like the story is over in a heart beat. I wish we would have got more backstory on Killer Croc’s time at the circus. I also wish this book had received the oversized magazine treatment as Nguyen’s art is absolutely beautiful. I could see the creative team doing a follow up story here, but I would also love to see the same creative team tackle each Robin in a similar format showcasing the differences in each kid. If you are a Batman fan, make sure this book is on your read list.

    Absolutely beautiful artwork from Dustin Nguyen on this project, unfortunately it is in support of a very well-trodden, unsurprising 'tales of the early years' story by Jeff Lemire that offers nothing new and very little payoff. Dick Grayson is one of my favourite DC characters and I was genuinely excited to see this come out. And, in fact, the first 40-odd pages of this were a really great read. It just...falters. It doesn't actually try anything other than to say, "I don't have to be like Batm Absolutely beautiful artwork from Dustin Nguyen on this project, unfortunately it is in support of a very well-trodden, unsurprising 'tales of the early years' story by Jeff Lemire that offers nothing new and very little payoff.

It doesn't actually try anything other than to say, "I don't have to be like Batman, I can be my own person," but also doesn't do that very interestingly. Like I said, great watercolour work by Nguyen. If you're in it mostly for the pictures than this is a 4 star book. If you want story with your pictures I have to settle on 2.

    Really solid "origin" story for Robin, showing new sides of his relationship with Bruce and Alfred. This is darker than what you might expect from a Robin story if you're new to the character, but I think it's just dark enough that it fits into the "normal" Batman stories most are used to. The art's great, a bit moody at times but it works. I love every scene with Dick and Alfred together and the twist about Robin's true purpose in the Justice League satellite was great. Overall a great story, I Really solid "origin" story for Robin, showing new sides of his relationship with Bruce and Alfred.

    This is the sane version of 'All Star Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder'. There's tension between Dick between and Batman, but no scenes of Batman calling Robin a "#$%@!". This is a solid portrayal of the start of a superhero partnership. A adult who doesn't know how to connect and a young man who lost his family. It's messy, but it's human. Bonus: Croc as a sideshow freak? Great idea. Bonus Bonus: Robin plays DnD? Of course he does! This is the sane version of 'All Star Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder'.

    Una storia del primo periodo di Grayson come Robin. Molto carino nel complesso. Particolari e ben fatti i disegni in acquerello di Nguyen.

    The book deals with Dick’s origin and his first interactions with Bruce, the JLA, and the Titans. We also get Killer Croc as a villain here, which works pretty well with Dick’s usual circus story. I know there’s a "Robin: Year one" already, but this has a similar vibe to concept. Dick gets tested by Bruce (as Bruce is wont to do), but his Grayson-ness still shines through Bruce’s usual roughness. The art was also great.

Dustin Nguyen did a fantastic job with this one - I think his art style works better here than in his Descender series, which gets all kinds of praise. I'm also glad that Lemire didn't draw this one - Nguyen's style just blends super well with Lemire's storytelling. Pretty cool story. 8/10 for the story and art.
