    The game-changing Batman epic returns in a new deluxe edition hardcover!

    As the second person to assume the role of Batman's sidekick, Jason Todd had a completely different personality than the original Robin. Rash and prone to ignore Batman's instructions, Jason was always quick to act without regard to consequences.

    This story put Jason's fate in the readers hands—who voted whether or not Robin should live or die at the hands of The Joker. This tale of loss, guilt, and brutality stands as one of the most defining pieces of the Dark Knights mythology.

    Includes several never-before-published pages that show what would have happened if Jason Todd had lived!

    Hardcover, 272 pages, full color.

    Cover price $49.99.

    The Batman classic of the 1980s is collected in a hardcover featuring stories previously released seperately as BATMAN: A DEATH IN THE FAMILY and BATMAN: A LONELY PLACE OF DYING for the first time in one place! Including BATMAN #426-429 and 440-442 and THE NEW TITANS #60-61!

    Readers were invited to vote on the outcome of this story - and they decided that Jason Todd should die! In this tragic tale, Jason lived up to his hot-headed reputation, ignoring his mentor's warnings when he attempts to take on The Joker by himself and paying the ultimate price. Driven by anger, with Superman by his side, Batman seeks his vengeance as he looks to end The Joker's threat forever. A DEATH IN THE FAMILY. In his ultimate showdown with the Boy Wonder, the Joker teams up with the most unlikely of allies -- Batman's readers! The year was 1988 -- the 50th anniversary of the Dark Knight Detective -- and his fans had been given an unprecedented opportunity to decide the outcome of one of his most pivotal stories. The choice? Whether to keep the status quo of Batman and Robin, the Dynamic Duo, or return Batman to what he once was -- a brooding, one-man war on crime. A vote was held, the results were honored, and history was made -- following his most devastating defeat, Robin was killed and Batman was once again Gotham's lone protector. But what would the ramifications of this tragedy be? Would Batman become a more focused champion of justice, or would he degenerate into a reckless vigilante, unable to recover from such a loss? These questions would be answered in the 5-part follow-up story A LONELY PLACE OF DYING, along with the biggest question of all: Does Batman need a Robin?

    This volume of DC COMICS CLASSICS LIBRARY collects both of these iconic tales, as well as anecdotes by writer Marv Wolfman.

    Hardcover, 272 pages, full color.
