Read full description of the books:
The Joker teams up with the most unlikely allies to kill the Boy Wonder… The Fans.
It was the Caped Crusader's fiftieth anniversary, and his fans were given a choice--keep the status quo of the Dynamic Duo, or return Batman to what he was created to be--a brooding, one-man war on crime. A vote was held, the results were honored and history was made--having been handed is most devastating defeat, Robin was killed and Batman was once again Gotham's lone Dark Knight.
But what would the ramifications of this tragedy be? Would Batman become a more focused champion of justice or a reckless vigilante, unable to recover from such a loss? These questions were answered in A LONELY PLACE FOR DYING-- a five-part follow up story, which answers the question, does Batman need a Robin?
This volume of DC COMICS CLASSICS LIBRARY collects both of these iconic tales, which defines the relationship between the Dynamic Duo. Written by Jim Starlin and Marv Worlman and with art by Jim Aparo, George Pérez and Tom Grummet, these stories originally ran in BATMAN 426-429, 440-442 and THE NEW TITANS 60-61. Also includes anecdotes by writer Len Wein and a very rare alternate page in case the readers voted to save Jason.

Read information about the authorJames P. "Jim" Starlin is an American comic book writer and artist. With a career dating back to the early 1970s, he is best known for "cosmic" tales and space opera; for revamping the Marvel Comics characters Captain Marvel and Adam Warlock; and for creating or co-creating the Marvel characters Thanos and Shang-Chi, Master of Kung Fu. Death and suicide are recurring themes in Starlin's work: Personifications of Death appeared in his Captain Marvel series and in a fill-in story for Ghost Rider; Warlock commits suicide by killing his future self; and suicide is a theme in a story he plotted and drew for The Rampaging Hulk magazine.
In the mid-1970s, Starlin contributed a cache of stories to the independently published science-fiction anthology Star Reach. Here he developed his ideas of God, death, and infinity, free of the restrictions of mainstream comics publishers' self-censorship arm, the Comics Code Authority. Starlin also drew "The Secret of Skull River", inked by frequent collaborator Al Milgrom, for Savage Tales #5 (July 1974).
When Marvel Comics wished to use the name of Captain Marvel for a new, different character, Starlin was given the rare opportunity to produce a one-shot story in which to kill off a main character. The Death of Captain Marvel became the first graphic novel published by the company itself. (
In the late 1980s, Starlin began working more for DC Comics, writing a number of Batman stories, including the four-issue miniseries Batman: The Cult (Aug.-Nov. 1988), and the storyline "Batman: A Death in the Family", in Batman #426-429 (Dec. 1988 – Jan. 1989), in which Jason Todd, the second of Batman's Robin sidekicks, was killed. The death was decided by fans, as DC Comics set up a hotline for readers to vote on as to whether or not Jason Todd should survive a potentially fatal situation. For DC he created Hardcore Station.
