Bio:
At the age of seventeen, Jerry Robinson was hired by Bob Kane as an art assistant on the newly created "Batman" series for Detective Comics. In 1941, when Kane moved on to other features, Robinson became the major artist on the strip. But Robinson never received bylines. Together with writer Bill Finger, Jerry Robinson created The Joker and Robin, the Boy Wonder. Robinson also did considerable work for other strips, including Green Hornet for Harvey, Atoman for Spark, and Fighting Yank and Black Terror (together with Mort Meskin) for Nedor. At DC Robinson worked with Meskin drawing The Vigilante and Johnny Quick. In the 1950s he worked for Timely and Western on a variety of titles.

In 1955 Robinson moved into the comic strip and editorial cartooning field. He was president of the National Cartoonist Society from 1967 to 1969. He created Life with Robinson in the 1970s, which eventually led him to establish the Cartoonist and Writers Syndicate. He wrote one of the "bibles" about comic strips, The Comics, and has traveled around the world promoting cartooning and cartoonists. Most recently, he curated an art exhibit on Golden Age creators.

Date of Birth: January 1, 1922
Birthplace: Trenton, New Jersey
