It is clear that Black Canary likes Batman, because the two have locked lips many times. So it should be no surprise that Batman and Black Canary kiss (and more!) in All-Star Batman and Robin The Wonder Boy. The relationship between Batman and Black Canary is a strange one, to say the least. But it is made stranger by Frank Miller, who often writes outlandish story lines that seem out of character, out of place, or both.
All-Star Batman and Robin The Wonder Boy tells the story of how Dick Grayson became Robin. Batman basically kidnaps the kid and tries to keep him scared and frightened to keep his mind off the death of his parents. He tries to starve him as well, and force him to eat rats. While this is all going on, Black Canary is out causing trouble, and Batman intervenes a fight. Out of nowhere, Batman and Black Canary kiss, and then have sex in the rain.
Frank Miller’s writing may be a bit off the wall, but it is admittedly intriguing to see the way Robin’s origin is told. The amazing artwork is done by one of my longtime favorite artists Jim Lee. He does some excellent images of not only Black Canary and Batman, but also Wonder Woman and Superman as well, who make an appearance. So when you combine the romance and relationship of Batman, the origin of Robin, and the legendary teamwork of Jim Lee and Frank Miller, you end up with a love-child called All-Star Batman and Robin The Wonder Boy. I picked it up from here, which is always a good place to start when looking for comics. Otherwise you could try Amazon.
