Scholars and Creators on 75 Years of Robin, Nightwing and Batman

Dick Grayson--alter-ego of the original Robin of Batman comics--has gone through various changes in his 75 years as a superhero but has remained the optimistic, humorous character readers first embraced in 1940. Predating Green Lantern and Wonder Woman, he is one of DC Comics' oldest heroes and retains a large and loyal fanbase. The first scholarly work to focus exclusively on the Boy Wonder, this collection of new essays features critical analysis, as well as interviews with some of the biggest names to study Dick Grayson, including Chuck Dixon, Devin Grayson and Marv Wolfman. The contributors discuss his vital place in the Batman saga, his growth and development into an independent hero, Nightwing, and the many storyline connections which put him at the center of the DC Universe. His character is explored in the contexts of feminism, trauma, friendship, and masculinity.

Ein tödliches Virus verbreitet sich rasend schnell über die Vereinigten Staaten.

Mit dieser Geschichte legen Robert Venditti und Mike Huddleston einen Thriller der Extraklasse vor, der nicht nur grafisch besticht, sondern auch ein echter Pageturner ist.
