Writer Joshua Williamson and artist Gleb Melnikov are about to take Damian Wayne on a solo journey in an all-new ongoing Robin series, starting on Tuesday, April 27, 2021.
Williamson is excited to be able to lead the son of Batman and Talia Al Ghul on his own hero’s journey and thinks “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.”
The new series will introduce a new supporting cast of characters and a new mission: to find, compete in, and win the League of Lazarus tournament.
For those interested in a prelude to Williamson and Melnikov’s new series, the March issues of Batman #106 (on sale March 2) and Detective Comics #1034 (on sale March 23) will feature a two-part “prequel” backup story, “Demon or Detective” (which includes a meeting with his estranged mother Talia al Ghul).
