Bird in the Hand


I ran a history of Robin in Comicology Vol. II #1 (Spring 2000).

What saw publication was an abridged version — long story and lingering frustration
— but a fuller piece titled "Wingspan: Six Decades of Richard Grayson" went up on the magazine's website. Has anyone reading this by chance saved the text of that?

I've yet to get my old, dead computer from those days looked at to see if files can be salvaged from the hard drive, and my backups are also inaccessible right now. Several years ago I found cached pages of the website from that period, including the piece in question, via the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine but I tried that again the other day and there's now a message saying those pages can't be crawled or displayed. (The comicology.com domain was bought out from under me when I missed renewal notices during a move complicated by health issues.)

I'm asking because a friend could make use of the piece if we get a copy in a timely manner. You would receive at minimum a thank-you in print should it get used and
my gratitude regardless.

[Update: I ended up writing a new Robin article myself, but from scratch, and I'd
still love to get my hands on the piece in question from 2000 for posterity.]
