Sherrill David Robinson, better known as Jerry Robinson, was an American comic book artist known for his work on DC Comics' Batman line of comics during the 1940s. He is best known as the co-creator of Robin and the Joker and for his work on behalf of creators' rights, including seeing his own name alongside Bob Kane and Bill Finger in the creation of Batman's most iconic images and characters. He was inducted into the Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2004 and died in 2011.
