DC Fan Club Crossover - Celebrating 80 Years of Robin!

Hello, DC Fans!

We have a pressing question for you - do you happen to love Robin as much as we do?
If so, then stay tuned, because, boy, do we have a month of fun to announce! :tada:

Accompanying the March 18th release of our 100-Page Super Spectacular commemorating 80 years of Batman’s crime-fighting ally, the outstanding group of people leading some of our Fan Clubs are generously hosting a month-long celebration of all things Robin!

With everything in store, there’s plenty on offer for everyone! From comic books and action figures, to trivia and watch-alongs, our clubs are running the gamut with events showcasing the changing faces, personalities, and stories of those who’ve taken up the mantle and identity of this memorable character, and loyal sidekick.

Have a favorite Robin or related tie-in? We have a week for you! :smiley:

To join in on the festivities, see below’s rundown of what’s planned, and keep an eye out on our Community Events Calendar for specific dates - we’ll keep both updated throughout the month!

FYI, for anyone interested in “The Adventures of Superman, with Robin, The Boy Wonder” over in the Superman Book Club, there’s been a last minute date change.

My Superman/Robin discussion will begin on March 18th, the same date that the Robin 80th Anniversary one-shot streets/comes out, and end on the 25th.

For those planning on a steady diet of Superman and Robin adventures, you may now plan accordingly. :slight_smile:
