Robin 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular

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: herosim.

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.

For all the completists out there (and I’m one of them) here are the covers, as originally sent to us back in March, alongside the brilliant standalone Lee Weeks variant:

This is a comic that I must own, but choosing just one cover will be impossible! Which one’s your favorite? Or are you aiming to get the whole set? Be sure to let us know.
