Chuck Dixon's resume includes thousands of scripts for iconic characters like Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Iron Man, the Punisher, The Simpsons, Spongebob Squarepants, GI Joe and many others. He is (along with artist Graham Nolan) the creator of the Batman villain Bane, the first permanent addition to the Dark Knight's rogues gallery in forty years and for which he won 1993's Wizard Fan Award for best new character. His graphic novel adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkein's The Hobbit is a perennial bestseller worldwide. His unprecedented 100 issue run on DC Comics Robin is considered to be a classic in the comics medium. Chuck's contributions to Marvel Comics' The Punisher are widely acknowledged as integral to that character's development.

An all right quasi-sequel to Batman: Dark Victory.
Chuck Dixon has always had such a good handle on the character of Robin, particularly Dick Grayson and his relationship with Bruce Wayne. Here we get a great collection of some of Robin's earliest adventures. Marcos Martin & Javier Pullido are perfect fits artistically for this project. I would recommend this to anyone.
If u wanna read a story that has to deal with responsibity, Trust, And turning of age, This is your best pick. Once you pick it up it would be hard to put it down
