Comic books are kind of a personal thing, y’know?
Your taste is personal, your experiences with them are personal. We also relate to certain characters and certain circumstances, too.
It has a lot to do with just how passionate fans can be.
None of this is rocket science or terribly surprising but it has everything to do with why I feel compelled to post a gallery celebrating Batman and Robin.
I’m a Batfan of the first order, of course, but on a strictly personal level, my son Sam returns to college this week and I’m naturally wistful about it.
It doesn’t take a Freud to equate Batman and Robin with the father-son bond, so here are 13 COVERS that celebrate the greatest partnership in comics history.
Pretty much because I like looking at these right now — and I think you will too, whether you have your own sidekick or not:
