Celebrate Your Favorite Robin with DC Comics Robin 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1 Decade Variant Covers!
The Boy Wonder turns 80 this year! DC is planning to celebrate comic’s most popular side-kick in March with a bevy of wonderful variant covers for their newest Prestige Format release Robin 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1. Just as an aside, I had some sweet Robin pjs when I was a kid, and was Robin one Halloween in my early ’30s. PLUS, my birthday is in March too! So happy birthday Dick, Jason, Carrie, Tim, Damien, et al!
