Robin’s in for the weirdest week of his life — one that sees an old friend become a new enemy and an old enemy become, well, sort of a friend.
Things get off to a bizarre start with someone framing Robin for the murder of Batgirl (not really her, but someone in her costume) and a citywide manhunt to bring the Boy Wonder to justice. As he works to prove his innocence, the hero quickly realizes the only way he’ll be able to prove his innocence is to find his friend. But where is the real Batgirl?
Meanwhile, a face from the past with ties to Robin’s father’s murder comes to town looking for the hero’s help. But can the Boy Wonder put aside his feelings about his dad’s death long enough to save the city from a deadly attack?
Robin was one of the few “One Year Later” comics that DC nailed on the first try and the creative team of writer Adam Beechen (Teen Titans), Freddie Williams II (Seven Soldiers) and Karl Kerschl (Adventures Of Superman) have quickly taken the Boy Wonder to new heights.
