    Technically Speaking Dick Grayson I was introduced to first via the films and DCAU.

    Mainstream comics, it was Tim Drake (who fortunately I learnt via TNBA); during the War Games Arc.

    For me it was Jason Todd in 1984 (yes, I'm that old...).
    I loved him.

    Technically, Jason Todd, so I voted for him. First legit Batman comic book I read was during the "Death in the Family" arc, as it was really hyped up in school (7th grade, lol).

    But I did have a Batman hardcover audio book which was pretty much a comic. Came with a cassette tape, and it was all in picture form. I had to look it up online, but it was from Fisher Price and was called "Batman: The Case of the Laughing Sphinx", and it had Robin (Dick Grayson). It was a pretty cool introductory story, as it had some of the main Batman villains: Joker, Penguin, Riddler, Catwoman.

    Here's a picture I found online. I used to read/listen to this book many a times when I was around 8yrs old. I also had a Wonder Woman book from the same line. Apparently, there were also books on the Justice League, as well as Superman, but I didn't have those two.....I also had a 70s Batman coloring book which had Dick Grayson as Robin. It was a coloring book in story form, so it was sort of a comic, but that definitely doesn't count. I actually still have both Fisher Price audio-books, as well as the coloring book. They're in storage.

    Man this is amazing!
    I would have killed to have it when i was a kid. We didn’t have it here in Italy.
    This kind of book/cassette or record player were only about Disney stuff or fairy tales for children.

    Dick by virtue of reprints of '60s to '70s stories and collections (Greatest Batman/Joker Stories Ever Told) and then Batman Adventures, which were also reprints here in the UK on glossy A4 paper with other features on BTAS and reader letters included.

    When I moved on to mainline comics after being hooked by the Knightfall TPBs Tim was wearing the costume.

    I had a bunch of the Disney ones. Those were essentially the early 80s version of VHS/DVD for kids, since videotape was pretty expensive back then, so it wasn't really an option.

    If you look at the price-tag of that Batman audiobook, $8 in the early 80s is probably like $20-$35 by today's standards, so even that isn't cheap.

    That was your first comic book story with "Robin" in it?
