A modern spin on the original teen superhero!

In a Gotham City ravaged by the Joker, Batman alone is not enough to keep the peace--and just one Robin isn't nearly enough to back him up. Now, teenagers who want to make a difference are coming together in droves and adopting the "R." They're not a gang. They're not sidekicks.

They are Robin.

When Duke Thomas is recruited by the mysterious Nest to join teens from all different backgrounds and walks of life in the Robins, he hopes that they can help him find his missing parents. Instead, they find something much more nefarious--an underground conspiracy that threatens to bring down Gotham.

Now it's up to these untrained teen vigilantes to save the city from a mysterious evil force. But being Robin is dangerous. Robins die. Will these new heroes face the same fate?

I have no idea how this book ended up on the great graphic novels for teens list, because even as a teen, I would have hated the way this book represents teens. it is so annoying - especially all the text conversations that try to be "hip". Note to adult authors - don't try to be hip. It never ends well.

Reading this comic was delightful; definitely one of the highlights of my comics reading this year. I didn’t know any of these people going in, but I was immediately emotionally involved in their story. This was a diverse group of young heroes, with diverse problems, different backgrounds, attitudes, and strengths. Their stories were not always easy, and the more famous heroes of Gotham were not always around to help them when help was needed. Their story has really just begun when we end Volume One, and I'm very much looking forward to their next adventure.

A different take on Gotham City that spins out of the events of Endgame. A group of young streetwise teens take up the mantle of Robin collectively. As this first collection is essentially getting to know the characters, some of them are rendered more vividly than others.
