Jeff Lemire and artist Dustin Nguyen are set to begin a Batman: Year One-style examination of the original Robin, Dick Grayson, in their new limited series this November.
Robin & Batman (a prestige format three-issue miniseries) will explore Grayson’s earliest crime-fighting escapades in a poignant and heart-felt manner, as the young hero faces an uphill climb to fill the role of sidekick to the World’s Greatest Detective.
Lemire and Nguyen are no strangers to each other, as they are the co-creators behind Image Comics Descender and Ascender (which wraps up with issue #18 on August 18).
Issue #1 of Robin & Batman goes on sale November 9th with a retail price of $5.99 and a standard cover by Nguyen and variants by Lemire and Rafael Albuquerque ( a rare 1:25 comic).
Check out Nguyen’s cover, as well as two preview pages from the upcoming first issue, below.
