In the spring of 1940, Robin (Dick Grayson) debuted and the unlikely partnership of Batman and Robin was off and running, becoming the most successful in comics history.
So, we should be celebrating Dick Grayson on this very special anniversary, the boy who grew up in front of our eyes into the most gorgeous man in the DCU. Along the way he’s not only been the Batman’s partner but has connected with nearly every hero in the spandex set, leading the Teen Titans and the Outsiders and becoming a member of the JLA. He’s the heir to the Wayne fortune, the one the paparazzi all love to follow, and life just wouldn’t be the same without him. And he’s the little black dress of the DCU: he goes well with anyone! ;)
The Diamond in the title symbolizes his 75th anniversary but if you want to include diamonds in your fanwork, I’m sure Dick would love it! ;)
We need more Dick in our lives, amirite? ;)

Come see Dick do it with grace and style!
Indulge your love of Dick Grayson! Fanworks (fanfic, fanart, icons, manips, wallpapers, story covers, illustrations, vids, and fanmixes) must focus on Dick. Celebrate his life from his Haly’s Circus days with his parents to his early days at the Manor and as Robin. See him take up the mantle of leadership for the Teen Titans. Watch him become his own man as Nightwing, and finally take up the mantle of the Bat. He’s a super-spy and even James Bond is envious of his je ne sais quoi! ;)
How did Dick change forever the lives of Bruce and Alfred? What was his first meeting with Clark like as he fanboys Superman? ;) What was it like to encounter the Joker for the first time? Let’s celebrate the Golden, Silver, and Bronze Ages, and the Modern Era! Whatever version speaks to you, let’s see him!
