Shawn likes throwing rice at superheroes

As a kid, Batman Family was one of my all time favorite books.
I loved Robin and it was fantastic to have a book
with his adventures.
Sometimes solo, sometimes teamed up with Batgirl,
but always great.
And I've always loved anthology books.
I always felt so much better when I was getting
3 or 4 stories in one book.

Unfortunately, as is the case with so many comics -
the cover is slightly misleading.
Although Robin and Batgirl do 'get married' - - -
it's all an eloborate hoax to amass a bunch of
mobsters in one place -
all the easier to round them up
into the paddy wagons that are waiting outside the theater.
But the most upsetting part - is that in the actual book
they aren't wearing their "FAAAAAAAB-U-LOUS!"
updated matrimonial outfits
- and THAT'S a major crime!

*But Batgirl IS wearing white! ;-)

Ok, I gotta admit--Bridal Batgirl kinda creeps me out. But Robins looks super swanky in this red and gold tux. You must have been thrilled.

But never mind all that--Commissioner Gordon and Alfred team up? Now that's what I wanna read! :D
