Prepare Yourself. November is the Month of Robin!

It is with great pleasure that we announce the winner of the DC’s Round Robins Competition – ROBINS.

With over 1 MILLION votes cast in the Round Robins Competition, ROBINS made it out as the victor. Take an early look at what’s coming up:

Writer: Tim Seeley (Grayson, Suicide Squad: King Shark)
Art: Baldemar Rivas (Unearth)
Variant Cover: Babs Tarr

Synopsis: Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake, Stephanie Brown, and Damian Wayne come together in the world’s most specific support group to finally talk about whether being a Robin was a good idea… but they can’t even do that without being ambushed. As an unknown assailant claims to have been the first Robin, the flock of Robins must figure out who she is, and what it means to be a Robin.

DC UNIVERSE INFINITE subscribers will get early access to ROBINS #1 on October 26th with a physical release date of November 16th.

Keep an eye out for exclusive variant covers too! The Robins have been busy and DC wants to make sure that you don’t miss out on their adventures!

I had hoped one of the other series would win but I am very excited to read this one. The art looks great and the premise is really cool.

October can’t come fast enough!

I’m hopeful Damien is treated well. I like his current series but he was really tarnished by Teen Titans. I don’t mind arrogant Damien (in appropriate doses) but in TT he was a sociopath.

Yay!! I’m so excited to read this. It will be nice to see all the Robins in one book.

It probably won’t be the focus of the book, but I do hope there’s at least some teasing/mocking between the different Robins about who had the best costume.

Seeley and Rivas are both pretty responsive on twitter, if you want to ask them!

I’m a bit confused about this one, since we do still have Robin Year One. But I’m very curious to see what Nguyen will make it look like - and how they’ll handle the timeline/technology issues. I still remember Batman and Robin Eternal, with Dick having a holographic computer interface as Robin, and feeling like that was very odd. :slight_smile:

Robins – while I would have been happy with some of the other books winning, I’m still happy for this one. I’m all in for all the Robins bickering with each other as they beat up the bad guys. I am curious to see what this “first Robin” is…

Robin & Batman – Jeff Lemire? Dustin Nguyen? HELL YES. SIGN. ME. UP. Yes, Robin: Year One exists, but I think this is going to be WAY better just from the creative team alone.

Should be an interesting read. I’m definitely curious.

Yeah, I’m excited this won as I love seeing these characters interact, but the first Robin thing bugs me. I could always be surprised, but pretty much anything that takes Robin away from being Dick’s legacy is not going to sit well with me.

I would be annoyed if it weren’t for the fact I’m like 90% sure that she won’t be a retconned “First Robin” in the sense of Bruce having another young partner before Dick.
