This story was originally created by Byron Preiss and P. Craig Russell in 1985–86 as a graphic novel titled Tom Swift 3000. It featured a futuristic version of the Stratemeyer Syndicate character Tom Swift, and was intended for Simon & Schuster's new graphic novel line. However, when Simon & Schuster changed their minds on entering the graphic novel market, the story languished for a few years before Preiss brought it to DC with plans to turn it into a Robin story, which was accomplished with rewriting and the addition of 18 new pages.
