Crowd-Sourcing Robin – June Mini-Relaunch Details From DC's Retailer Roadshow In Orlando

RobinSonofBatmanCover_580_54d4449ee523f9.35792855Told to retailers at the Orlando DC Retailer Roadshow yesterday…

The new Robin: Son Of Batman title from Patrick Gleason is described as a Johnny Quest-style book, though with very different adventures. Part Johnny Quest and part How To Train Your Dragon, one retailer described it as like Stanley And His Monster.

We Are Robin shows how Batman has so many Robins. It's how Batman has affected the youth of Gotham, the very existence of Robin is now being crowd sourced. Rather Brat Pack

Section 8, the insane superhero team from Hitman who are getting their own title, will hit up Superman, Batman and all the iconic DC characters to be their eighth member. Who will say yes? Hint, probably not Kyle Rayner.

Prez is socially conscious and should play well in an election year. It was said to have a Steve Gerber Howard the Duck feel.

Gene Luen Yang, the writer of American Born Chineseis said to bring his unique immigrant history experience to Superman as a Kryptonian born American.

Bryan Hitch's long-in-the-works full first issue of Justice League Of America was shown. It doesn't invalidate continuity but isn't beholden to it

And both the new Batman Beyond and Earth 2: Society comics and the Darkseid War crossover will spin directly out of their appearances in Convergence.
