Description

The death that changed Batman forever is captured in this chilling hardcover edition that hasn't been released in a decade!

Death comes to us all.

In 1988 the pop culture world was rocked when comics readers were given the opportunity to decide the outcome of one of the medium's most controversial quandaries- Should the Boy Wonder die?

When Jason Todd's impulsive nature clashes with the Dark Knight's methodical approach to crime-fighting yet again, Jason takes off on his own in search of his birth mother. Meanwhile, Batman's latest case leads him to the Middle East, hot on the trail of the Joker, whois brokering the sale of a nuclear device to terrorists! Realizing that they must work together to prevent a global disaster and find Jason's long-lost mother, Batman and Robin reunite in time to thwart the Clown Prince of Crime. However, this setback sets in motion a far more sinister plot that ultimately leads to betrayal and a deadly date with a crowbar...

The decision to kill off the second Robin drew polarized opinions from fans and critics and remains one of the most controversial story arcs in the history of the Caped Crusader. Would the Dark Knight slip into the darkness of the abyss without a Boy Wonder to hold him back? And would fans ever accept another wayward youth stepping into the role of Robin?

The answers lie in Batman- A Death in the Family The Deluxe Edition, which collects the original Death in the Family tale from Batman #426-429 plus "A Lonely Place of Dying" from Batman #440-442 and The New Titans #60-61, which introduced the third Robin, Tim Drake. This edition also features a brand-new introduction from former DC Comics editor Scott Peterson that delves into the history of this epic story line, as well as the never-before-printed alternate pages from Batman #428 that show what would happen if the Boy Wonder had lived!

Jim Starlin is the acclaimed author of classic graphic novels including, for DC Comics, COSMIC ODYSSEY and BATMAN- A DEATH IN THE FAMILY, as well as the 1982 Marvel graphic novel The Death of Captain Marvel. His other works include the space operas Warlock and Dreadstar.

One of the most prolific and influential writers in modern comics, Marv Wolfman began his career as an artist. Wolfman has helped shape the heroic careers of DC Comics' Green Lantern, Blackhawk, and the original
Teen Titans, as well as Marvel Comics' Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, Nova, and Tomb of Dracula. In addition to
co-creating THE NEW TEEN TITANS and CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS with George Perez, Wolfman was instrumental in the revamp of Superman after CRISIS. Wolfman has also written several novels and worked on Superman- The Animated Series and the Teen Titans animated series on Cartoon Network.
