For Valentine’s Day, we wanted to cover a comic book couple that we haven’t spent much time with: Dick Grayson & Barbara Gordon. Turns out Nightwing: Year One didn’t have quite as much Batgirl in it as we thought it would, but don’t worry…
Join us for Nightwing 101-106 and Secret Wars 7.
Next Time: We get ready for Captain Marvel by checking out the Kree-Skrull War Part 1 (Avengers 89-93)
It’s our 3-year anniversary, so we had to continue the tradition by reading Batman: Year 3 from 1989 by Marv Wolfman with art by Pat Broderick.
No really, we had to, we’re thankful there’s no Year Four.
Originally from issues 436-439, it appears to be a story retelling Robin’s origin. And then they pasted the “Year Three” title on it. Then they changed “Three” to a “3” for some reason. Look, we don’t know.
Next Time – Annihilation: Conquest
Batman’s not the only hero to get a Year One.
This time around, the gang reads Robin: Year One to see how it compares to the Frank Miller classic.
We’ll discuss how easy it is to mix up all the Robins, the merits of attacking random little boys on the street, and whether or not Two-Face has a law degree.
