Jerry Robinson Jan 1 1922 - Dec 7 2011
Creator for Batman comics of The Joker, Robin, Alfred the Butler and Two -face, all of which through TV and movies went on to make a load of money, But not I believe for Jerry. He did have the wit to collect the studios discarded art from the wastepaper basket and was later to be active in securing artist rights to their work.

He published his own range of comics, created his own strips, was president of the National Cartoonists Society 1967 -1969, founded Cartoonists & Writers Syndicate/Comics Arts International, wrote The Comics a book on newspaper strips, created his own newspaper strip, taught at New York‘s School of Visual Arts, curated gallery exhibitions of comic art, .  In 2007 he was hired by DC as creative consultant.
Full Life.
