Frank Miller And Jim Lee Take On The Dynamic Duo In All-Star: Batman And Robin

Superstar
artist Jim Lee will be joined by legendary writer and Batman
visionary Frank Miller on DC’s upcoming ALL-STAR: BATMAN AND
ROBIN. The series, scheduled to make its debut later this year,
marks Miller’s first work on the Dark Knight since 2001’s acclaimed
THE DARK KNIGHT STRIKES AGAIN, and Lee’s return to Batman following
2002’s best-selling "Hush" storyline in BATMAN.

"If there was one creator I wanted to work with when I
was a fan, it would have been Frank Miller," says Lee,
"so after this project, I think I’m going to be ready to
retire! Seriously, it will be the pinnacle of my career so far,
and I can’t wait to get started. Frank and I have had a couple
of meetings about the story, and it’s going to rock!"

Miller says, "This is Dick Grayson’s initiation and he’s
dealing with a very stern teacher. Batman is a hard teacher
— unforgiving. Brutal. At the same time, Grayson is watching
Batman come into his full power. Me and Jim Lee get to play
with all of DC’s toys. It’ll be a romp. It’ll be a lot of fun.
I plan on raiding DC’s treasury of characters. There won’t be
a Black Canary or a Wonder Woman unused."

"This is quite an honor and, needless to say, a fairly
daunting task that DC has bestowed upon me by handing me the
helm of ALL-STARS," says Group Editor Bob Schreck. "Being
able to help these incredibly talented creators bring their
amazing tales to life on the comics page is going to be one
heck of a ride, no doubt. I can’t wait until the readers get
to see what’s in store for them."

"Frank was instrumental in redefining Batman for a new
generation, and I, for one, can’t wait to see him bring that
same level of clarity and interpretation to Dick Grayson and
Robin," says Dan DiDio, VP — Executive Editor, DCU.
"With the teams now set for the two ALL-STAR books, BATMAN
AND ROBIN and SUPERMAN, everyone should agree that they meet
the expectations set for these series: All Star creators working
on iconic versions of our All Star characters — it doesn’t
get much better than this."
