James Robinson has been writing for over two decades, with an early comics work, “Grendel: The Devil’s Whisper”, appearing in the 1989 series of British anthology A1. The story for which he has arguably been most renowned is the DC Comics series Starman, where he took the aging Golden Age character of the same name and revitalized both the character and all those who had used the title over the decades, weaving them into an interconnected whole. In 1997, Robinson’s work on the title garnered him an Eisner Award for “Best Serialized Story”.
He is also famous for his comic The Golden Age, which, despite being an Elseworlds story, still established much of the backstory he would later use in Starman. He has also written the Batman book Legends of the Dark Knight, and served as a consultant and co-writer in the first year of JSA and its subsequent spin-off Hawkman. Also at DC, he did a miniseries involving the company’s original Vigilante character as well as producing the Sandman spin-off mini-series Witchcraft for Vertigo. Robinson also wrote a brief but very well remembered run of Wildcats, teamed up with artist Travis Charest, that further developed the book’s mythology, along with a spinoff mini-series called Team One.
In 2006, Robinson took over the writing duties on Batman and Detective Comics, penning the eight-issue “Face The Face” storyline, as part of the One Year Later project announced by DC. Robinson has previously written the Batman story “Blades” as one of his several stints at writing stories for the anthology title Legends of the Dark Knight.
On February 8, 2008, Robinson was appointed the new writer of the DC flagship title, Superman;this run included the storyline “The Coming of Atlas”. He wrote the 2009-2010 mini-series Justice League: Cry for Justice and took over writing duties on Justice League of America in October 2009 with art by Mark Bagley.. Robinson was joined by artist Brett Booth on Justice League of America in February 2011. In May 2010, James Robinson & Sterling Gates co-wrote, with artist Eddy Barrows, a “War of the Supermen”, a Superman-based event that was the culmination of two years of story starting from Superman: New Krypton. Robinson said in 2010 he will write a series starring The Shade, a character closely identified with his Starman series.
