The The Batman Family wiki last edited by cbishop on 08/22/13 10:26PM View full history

As part of its new "Giant" line of titles, DC launched "Batman Family", with its memorable debut of the Robin - Batgirl team. Scribe Elliot S! Maggin and artist Mike Grell unleashed the "Invader from Hell," Benedict Arnold himself. Batgirl and Robin fought off the disgraced general until his frustrated boss - the devil - returned him to his Hadean dwellings. In victory, Batgirl and Robin shared a moment that would someday blossom into a romance - but it wouldn't be realized in this series' 20 issue run. 

The creation of this series coincided with the DC Explosion.  After a run of less than two year the series was canceled and merged into Detective Comics in the DC Implosion.  There was debate at the time over the decision to do so as this series was far outselling Detective Comics, but the decision was made to keep the flagship and namesake franchise.   

NOTE: Indicia titled as "The Batman Family".
