Scheduled to launch in May, ‘The Boy Wonder’ presents an accessible and emotionally resonant fairy tale. The story begins with Batman being called away on urgent business, leaving Damian to face a new threat in Gotham City. As rumors circulate about a menacing demon roaming the streets, Damian must join forces with the other Robins to save the day.

What sets ‘The Boy Wonder’ apart is Juni Ba’s stunning and hyper-stylized artwork, as showcased in the accompanying gallery. Ba, known for his previous works such as ‘Monkey Meat’ and ‘Djeliya,’ brings a cartoony vibe to the characters, capturing the essence of childlike adventure and wonder that Robin represents.

Ba shares his vision for the series, stating, “There is in Robin, something quintessentially fun and superheroic. To me, he is the epitome of childlike adventure and wonder. Coming from the generation of fans that loved Batman: The Animated Series, I want The Boy Wonder to capture the fun of episodic adventure and the compelling characters in an accessible book that anyone can enjoy regardless of prior history.”

The cover for the first issue, as well as a variant cover by Cliff Chiang, have been unveiled, further showcasing Ba’s unique artistic style.

Describing Damian as his “favorite little gremlin,” Ba adds, “Who better to teach us about heroism and family than someone who, deep down, fears he’s not a good enough person to deserve either? The story will be fun but tug at your heartstrings, too.”

Fans of the Batman universe and newcomers alike can look forward to the release of ‘The Boy Wonder’ #1 on May 7th. This series promises to offer an engaging narrative that explores the dynamics between Damian Wayne and the other Robins while delivering captivating visuals that blend adventure and emotion.
