Jerry Robinson, the legendary comic book artist who helped create pillars of the Batman mythos like Robin, Joker, Alfred Pennyworth and Two-Face, died in his sleep Wednesday in New York at the age of 89.
“Jerry Robinson illustrated some of the defining images of pop culture’s greatest icons,” DC Entertainment co-publisher Jim Lee said in a statement. “As an artist myself, it’s impossible not to feel humbled by his body of work.

Robinson, who settled down in New York since his Columbia days, is survived by a wife, Gro, a son, Jens, and a daughter, Kristen, as well as two grandchildren.
