Jerry Robinson 1st January 1922 – 7th December 2011

One of the only people to truly influence the style of Steve Ditko was his teacher, colleague and mentor Jerry Robinson who died on Wednesday at the age of 89.

Robinson who taught  Ditko in the fifties is best known for his work with DC comics and especially the creation of the Joker with his depictions of the maniac being the most iconic and remembered of all the variations.

Jerry Robinson always had the greatest things to say about Steve Ditko and how their student/teacher realationship was. He was a true gentlemen always being polite and telling it how it was.

To remember Jerry here is a recording Interview done with him at comiczoneradio where he briefly talks about Steve Ditko and his own amazing career.


In addition to this I will be posting his brief intro to Craig Yo’s “Art of Ditko book” during the week.
