Atlantic City Copy


One of the most important issues of the Golden Age, Detective Comics #38 marks the promising debut of the best-known sidekick in the history of comics: Robin, the Boy Wonder! Dick Grayson, ward of millionaire Bruce Wayne, lends a hand to the Dark Knight when just one hero won't do. Created in 1940 by the team of Bob Kane, Bill Finger, and Jerry Robinson, Dick Grayson's tragic backstory concerning his similarly slain parents made him the perfect companion for the ominously orphaned Bruce Wayne.

Robin attracted younger readers and doubled the sales of comics in the Batman franchise—solidifying the Batman mythos and inspiring several other kid sidekicks over the years. Many different teens would take on Robin's trademark yellow cape, red suit, green boots and gloves. There will still only ever be one original Boy Wonder, and one definitive collectible first appearance, as an exuberant Young Master Grayson bursts onto the cover and into legend.
