    One thought on “Showcase Presents: Robin the Boy Wonder, Vol. 1”

    1. For fans of this era, this collection represents the evolution of the character from its origin to the mid 1970s. Especially interesting to read the take on issues of the day such as the generation gap, college protests and the role of women. Interesting to catch a couple of Marvel references as well as Robin's questioning of his relevance as a hero. For historical purposes and fans of a simpler era it was worthwhile.

    2. A lot of small time crooks being busted up in the 70's. Minimalist writing but it's pretty clever sometimes.The old issues of Batman are pretty slow and cheesy, the Jimmy Olsen issues are better, but sub par compared to some ideas that that acid-trippy magazine created.Any team-ups in Brave and the Bold or Superman Team-Ups are solid. It's generally solid, and of course the JLA two issue thing was awesome.

    3. You can really spot the late 60s early 70s shift towards "relevance" in comic book stories here as Robin goes off to college and deals with issues of the day.For more comic book reviews, see skjam/category/comic-b

    4. I love reading these Showcase books because you get over 500 pages of older comics that would take forever trying to find. The stories ranged from Robin being in high school to him being in college.

    5. a fascinating collection, captures the transition between silver age zaniness and bronze age social awareness.
