A living legend of American comics and one of SVA’s original faculty members, Jerry Robinson will discuss his influential career and sign copies of his most recent books, Jerry Robinson: Ambassador of Comics (Abrams ComicArts, 2010) and the fully reworked and newly updated edition of his 1974 classic, The Comics: An Illustrated History of Comic Strip Art (Dark Horse, 2011). As a member of the original Batman creative team, Robinson created the character of the Joker and co-created Robin. A 70-year veteran of the comics industry, he was inducted into the Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2004. Robinson will be interviewed by Michael Uslan, executive producer The Dark Knight. Uslan’s memoir, The Boy Who Loved Batman, will be published this summer.
