One of Gotham’s architects was born 99 years ago…
The late Jerry Robinson — who co-created the Joker and Robin — was born Jan. 1, 1922.
Usually, we show off 13 COVERS but this year it’s 13 SPLASH PAGES — and some will be immediately recognizable to you.
Now, credits are a funky thing in the Golden Age but according to the Grand Comics Database, all of these were — unless otherwise noted — pencilled by Bob Kane, inked by Robinson, with backgrounds inked by George Roussos. (With Kane’s pencils, Robinson’s inks were a particularly heavy lift.)
