JERRY ROBINSON - Creator of The Joker and Robin The Boy Wonder, Dies at Age 89

It's with an extremely sad and very heavy heart that I have to report the passing away of a Comic Book Legend, Jerry Robinson. He died at the age of 89. Almost everybody who loves Comic Books knows his many major contributions to the field of Comics. He created the greatest Villain in Pop Culture, the Joker. He also created Robin, the Boy Wonder. He was one of the last surviving Comic Book Artists from the "Golden Age".

I never met him in person but friends of mine who have all said he was a really great guy, a very nice person. I once had a conversation with him online & when I mentioned I did a little website called the BAT-BLOG he said, "Yeah, I've read it a few times, it's great! Gee, you really like Batman!". Wow! I can't begin to express what a trill that was!! My blog, or even the actual character, probably would not exist without this guy. He gave us all so much. Thank you Mr. Robinson for all you have done. We will never forget you.
