Check out the ROBIN 80TH ANNIVERSARY decade-specific covers

DC Comics is releasing the Robin 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1 in March, and, as such, it too is getting a set of decade-specific variant covers.

Yes, Robin is the third character this year (and fifth in the past three years) to get a celebration of his 80th birthday, and, like all of the others who have reached this landmark (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and The Flash), DC Comics has recruited eight artists to provide covers reflective of the character for each decade in which he has existed.

The full list of artists with the accompanying decades for the comic can be found below, followed by the preview text for the comic, followed by the actual covers (which, let’s be honest, is what you are all here for anyway). The covers are in order of the decades they represent, minus the 1940s cover which is yet to be released. Enjoy!

The Robin 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1will feature decade variants by:

  • 1940’s variant cover by Jim Lee, Scott Williams and Alex Sinclair
  • 1950’s variant cover by Julian Totino Tedesco
  • 1960’s variant cover by Dustin Nguyen
  • 1970’s variant cover by Kaare Andrews
  • 1980’s variant cover by Frank Miller
  • 1990’s variant cover by Jim Cheung and Tomeu Morey
  • 2000’s variant cover by Derrick Chew
  • 2010’s variant cover by Yasmine Putri

From the high-flying adventures of Dick Grayson to the tragedy of Jason Todd, the enthusiasm of Tim Drake and the arrogance of Damian Wayne, the persistence of Stephanie Brown and the rebelliousness of Carrie Kelley, the mantle of Robin has been worn by many, but always represents one thing: a hero.

Robin 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1, with a main cover by Lee Weeks, includes contributions by writers Marv Wolfman, Chuck Dixon, Devin Grayson, Tim Seeley, Tom King, Judd Winick, James Tynion IV, Amy Wolfram, Robbie Thompson, Adam Glass, and Peter J. Tomasi, and artists Tom Grummett, Scott McDaniel, Mikel Janin, Kenneth Rocafort, Freddie Williams II, Javi Fernandez, Nicola Scott, Dustin Nguyen, Andy Kubert, and Frank Miller.

Prestige format $9.99
