I'm a 35 year old Canadian living in Ontario. I read comics, I love to draw and I collect comic art. I also teach karate, play hockey, and am a dad to 3 girls! My comic book passion lies with Batman and his pals with Nightwing taking a very close #2 favourite position. I began collecting comic art in 2013 and I have several commissions done by Ken Lashley and an amazing Francis Manapul Batman. As well I have sold a few of my own creations!

No. 1: Bruce Wayne

Everyone knows who Batman is, he's Bruce Wayne of course.  I bet if you go ask your Grandma right now even she can tell you that without hesitation.  Try telling anyone that he was Robin first and you are sure to get some curious looks.

However within the pages of The Untold Legend of The Batman, which was actually the first comic book I owned, it's laid out right there that a young Bruce put on the first Robin costume in order to train with a local detective and make his first step toward becoming a crime fighter.

Clearly, we all know what happened in this instance, young Bruce grew up, trained in various locations around the world and studied to not only become the world's greatest detective but one of the best martial artists and scientist as well.  He became Batman and without him there would have been no more Robins.
