Bio:
James Dale Robinson, usually referred to as just "James Robinson", is a British writer of comic books and screenplays and known for his interest in old collectibles and memorabilia. His most famous work is Starman, where he took a fairly obscure character and revitalized him to considerable critical acclaim. In 1997, Robinson's work on the title garnered him an Eisner Award, for the Best Serialized Story.

He is also famous for his comic The Golden Age, which, despite being outside the normal DC universe continuity as an Elseworlds story, still established much of the backstory he would later use in Starman. He has also written the Batman book Legends of the Dark Knight, JSA, Hawkman, and his own creation Leave it to Chance, for which Robinson won two more Eisner Awards in 1997, for Best New Series and Best Title for Younger Readers.

In addition to his work in comics, Robinson wrote the screenplay for the 2003 movie version of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. This caused some controversy among fans of the original work, many of whom were disappointed that an established comics writer's take on Alan Moore's and Kevin O'Neill's series took so many liberties with and considerably changed the tone of the source material.

Date of Birth: April 1, 1963
Birthplace: Manchester, England, UK
