TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3559:
I had just finished posting today's blog, (#3558), when I saw the announcement that Mr. Jerry Robinson had passed.
Having the pleasure of meeting Jerry a few times at comic cons, and at an after con event, I wanted to post a brief blog about his passing today, instead of waiting for tommorrow.
Also, I had had the delight in seeing several of his own personal comic books related items a couple of years back, (February 21st of 2009), when his traveling exhibit, 'Zap! Pow! Bam!' was on the West Coast, in Los Angeles. As seen in this two part blog from our visit during the Opening Weekend to the Skirball Museum. Part 1 & Part 2.
Jerry Robinson's contributions to comic books was vast, as seen at this link to the his credits listed in the GCD (Grand Comics Database)!
You can read more about Jerry's life in the wiki entry on the Wikipedia web site.
My condolences to Jerry's family & friends.
His contributions to comics will not be forgotten, nor will he, the man...!
