DC Comics has announced Batman and Robin and Howard, a new middle grade graphic novel from Jeffrey Brown.

Batman and Robin and Howard is a hilarious, heartwarming tale that follows a young Damian as he starts a new school after being sidelined by his superhero dad—Bruce Wayne, a.k.a Batman. Damian must navigate being the new kid while also learning how to be a regular kid as he attempts to make friends at Gotham Metro Academy. From the classroom to the soccer field, Damian is certain his new surroundings have nothing to teach him—so he is completely unprepared for the challenge he finds in Howard, the smartest and most athletic kid in school.

“It was really exciting to have a chance to make a book with Batman—a character I’ve enjoyed seeing so many different versions of—but it turned out what I enjoyed even more was writing a story that showed Robin’s character, beyond the sidekick surface,” said Brown. “I wanted to take these superheroes out of their element a little, show how they might struggle in the real world like the rest of us—or maybe show how the rest of us can have a heroic side, too. And when Robin meets Howard, I thought readers might see that a friendly rivalry can be better than a rivalry, but sometimes just being friends is the best.”

Batman and Robin and Howard arrives on November 9, 2021.
