Best Dick Grayson origin story?

#1 Posted by david4shure (43 posts) - - Show Bio

Hey guys, 

I've been starting with batman, and I just finished year one and son of the demon, and I am looking for the best Robin/Dick Grayson origin story (true origin, circus, flying graysons, family murder and everything) 
 
Thanks again

I liked Year One by Chuck Dixon

There isn't really a definitive one in trade. Robin Year One isn't entirely an origin, it's just him getting used to his new lifestyle and Dark Victory isn't worth buying or even reading if it's his origin you want. There is a story arc in Batman called "Batman Year Three" and that explains Dick's origin well but unfortunately it's not in trade. If you plan to find it though they are issues #436-#439 of Batman.

He's right: Search " A Lonely Place of Dying" I think it was called. It delves into Dick's past and introduces Tim Drake as the new Robin along the way..

@SmoothJammin: I have a lonely place of dying and it doesn't have any Dick Grayson origin. It's the previous story that has it.

From what I remember it dealed with Tony Zucco and him getting vengeance for his parents but naw, not an origin story
