Damian Wayne is ready to become his own man. No longer attached to Batman or the Teen Titans, his destiny is his own. That is where DC Comics Robin #1 kicks off. Written by Joshua Williamson and drawn by Gleb Melnikov, Robin makes new friends and of course, new enemies. He is a Wayne after all. DC reminded fans of this upcoming title in this recent Press Release:
From DC Comics
Now that Damian Wayne has severed his ties to both Batman and the Teen Titans, he’ll be emerging from under their shadows to forge his own path. Courtesy of writer Joshua Williamson (The Flash, Future State: Justice League, Infinite Frontier) and artist Gleb Melnikov (Wonder Woman, Batman/Superman Annual) in an all-new ongoing series! Debuting on Tuesday, April 27, Robin #1 will feature new mysteries for Damian to explore. Plus a new supporting cast including Rose Wilson and Connor Hawke, brand new characters Flatline and ReSpawn, and fights—lots of fights!
Being a big fan of Damian Wayne, I’m really excited about getting him back on a hero’s journey. Gleb is the perfect artist to tell this story as we show readers Damian’s growth, in a new adventure that navigates his legacy, his connections to Batman, Talia Al Ghul and kicks off an important story in the DC Universe.
After learning of the deadly League of Lazarus tournament, Damian Wayne has a new mission: to win the tournament and prove he is the greatest fighter in the DC Universe! But first he must find the secret island where the tournament is being held!
Robin #1 features a main and wraparound variant covers by Melnikov, a team-themed card stock variant cover by Andy Kubert and a 1 in 25 variant cover by Riccardo Federici. Robin is a can’t-miss look at the next phase of Damian Wayne’s hero’s journey.
