Help please. Looking for a Robin storyline.

#1 Posted by BreakingTheFourthWall (23 posts) - - Show Bio

I would like to read a story that focuses on the origin of Dick Grayson, but I don't know where to go for that.  
 
Preferably, I would like to read one that isn't super old (too corny) or super new (they can be overly contrived or you have to read crossovers or a lot of other issues, etc.). I really like those comics that are kind of in the middle: ones that have depth, but aren't trying too hard. But if there is no such comic that focuses on Grayson's origin, then I would go with the next best thing.  
 
Any advice would be much appreciated.

If you want him as Robin you could try Robin: Year One, or if you want Nightwing you could pick up Nightwing issues 106-106, it deals with how he got his new identity.

Start reading Nightwing 101 - 106, I just read the first issue, it was amazing. This is the new origins you're looking for.

Dick is first introduced as Robin in modern continuity in Batman: Dark Victory. Robin: Year One deals with his first year as Robin. Also, if you plan on getting Dark Victory, you should get Long Halloween if you are interested in the story as it's a follow up but if you're strictly only looking for Robin, then just get Dark Victory, but you may be a little confused without Long Halloween.

@Sexy Merc:  Forgot about Dark Victory, it's so good.

@junkmasterzero: I agree. It's overshadowed by Long Halloween but it's a good story.
