RIP: Jerry Robinson


Just got word from Batman movie producer Michael Uslan on Facebook that the great Batman artist and editorial cartoonist Jerry Robinson just passed away.

Jerry was not only a gentleman, but also tough as nails when called for: he advocated for creator's rights throughout the years, either in his work as head of his own cartoon syndicate, or in the interest of his friends Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.

And that's only the start of Jerry's accomplishments, the tip of the iceberg when considering his contributions as a creator and historian.

You will be missed, Jerry.

  1. One of the true legends has left us, but his work remains and endures.

    I never met Jerry Robinson personally--I would usually see him at a distance at conventions, but never went meet him. It's something that I will regret.
