Robin 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular

Celebrating the character's 80 years in comics, the Robin 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular offers stories throughout Robin's run featuring those who have worn the costume over the years. "Robin in A Little Nudge" features Dick Grayson's final day as Robin, "Aftershocks" features Nightwing in a broken Gotham City during the events of Batman: Cataclysm, Nightwing infiltrates H.I.V.E. in "Team Building," and we get an adventure with Dick Grayson from his spy days in "The Lesson Plan."

The other Robins also get tales, my favorite of which features the Red Hood completing a task he started during his time as Robin in "More Time." Tim Drake gets a pair of stories in "Extra Credit" and "Boy Wonders" both touching on themes of growing up and learning to grow into his own Robin. Stephanie Brown struggles with becoming the new Robin in "Fitting In" in a nice story featuring the shortest tenured Robin of them all. Damian is seen in "My Best Friend" centering around his friendship with Jonathan Kent and "Bat and Mouse" which ties into current storylines (and is the least interesting of all the tales). For fans.
