Late last year I helped share the news that DC Comics was going to be releasing a special edition that would celebrate Robin, The Boy Wonder. That’s the trusty sidekick for those of you who don’t dabble in too many comic book things and the full title of said release is “Robin 80th Anniversary 100 Page Spectacular” – Whew. If you missed the skinny about it just click HERE since I loaded up all of the variant cover images. The visual below is the considered Standard Edition.
Back in January, I helped share the news about the comic book milestone issue #750 for DC Comics “The Flash”. For this special edition one-shot, there would be a series of “Decades” variants much like the ones we saw for “Wonder Woman” #750. My variant covers “reveal” post for “The Flash” #750 can be examined HERE. The standard edition of this special edition is presented for you below and then I decided to have a little fun.
Since it was New Comic Book Day and since we were in our local comic book shop (Galaxy Comics in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn), I decided to have some fun and capture a quick video of all the individual issues on the racks and say a little bit about the whole batch. It makes for some good YouTube Channel content and we’d love to have you as subscribers on this medium so be sure to click HERE, choose “subscribe” and click the bell to be alerted to any newness.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I noted that was likely to do when this hit the stands, I picked up a single copy of the issue that you see in this post because I don’t have the space for “8” additional issues of a single title anymore. Let me add to the fact that there is also going to be a special edition “Green Lantern” and “Joker” issue coming and those will also run between 8-10 dollars apiece. I miss the days when this hobby wasn’t as expensive as its become. So what do you readers think about this announcement? Will you be purchasing this special edition of “The Flash” or its multiple variant covers? Chime in down below in the comments section. See you next time.
