Superman #21 Jerry Robinson Pedigree plus Signature Series.
Jerry Robinson is an accomplished artist, writer, historian and curator. He is President and Editorial Director of CartoonArts International Inc. and Cartoonists and Writers Syndicate (CWS)- affiliated with the New York Times Feature Service, which syndicates and exhibits the work of 350 leading cartoonists and graphic artists from seventy five countries.
While a journalism student at Columbia University, Robinson began his cartooning career at age 17 on the original Batman Comic books, for which he created the Joker, comics’ first super villain. Robinson played a key role in the success of Batman, naming Batman’s ward, Robin, and designing his costume. Robinson is ranked among the 100 greatest comic book artists of all time. He is also credited with “defining Batman’s look and tone.” Robinson’s series of superbly designed covers added “depth and visual pizzazz” to Batman. In addition to being historic, many of his covers are still considered “classics”.
Robinson’s diverse career afforded him the opportunity to work with, befriend and interview a diverse and unparralled array of talent from the medium. The Robinson Collection, assembled over 67 years, is unique in its coverage of the nucleus and origins of comic books. It is a collection that was assembled with the goal of becoming a resource for public appreciation and study by historians now and in the future.
Robinson worked on all the early Batman issues featuring the early appearances of the Joker, Catwoman, the Penguin, the Batmobile as well as the Detective Comics issues featuring the origin of the Batman as well as many of the key story lines. He also worked on early Action and Superman Golden age issues.
