13 of the Greatest ROBIN Covers Ever

For the hell of it, really…

I’ve been doing this lately — putting together 13 COVERS selections to fit my mood. Not because of a particular landmark, which I usually do, but because I feel like it. It’s a fun exercise and you guys seem to dig it, so here we are. (Previous selections include Batman, Superman and Spider-Man.)

Robin’s the theme this time around. Why? Well, last week, we got a glimpse of his outfit from the new Titans TV show; Tim Seeley talked to us about wrapping up his Nightwing run; just today I posted that Burt Ward is headlining East Coast Comicon next spring (click here); and I’ve got something really cool coming about the Boy Wonder this weekend. (Shhhh. You’ll have to come back to see it.)

So he’s kind of in my personal zeitgeist right now.

Anyway, these 13 COVERS are some of Robin’s greatest ever. Of course, by definition there’s a lot missing, so feel free to add your own — either below or in whichever social-media thread you found this.

Onward!
