Matt and Kevin Smith Reaveal the Secret Origins of the Joker

Earlier this month, Kevin Smith brought me in to the Smodcast studios to appear on his Fatman on Batman videocast as part of a follow-up to my appearance on the SoundCloud audio podcast to talk about the Jerry Robinson original art pages I acquired that may be evidence–once and for all–that Jerry co-created the Joker in the same time frame that he co-created Robin.

Above is the second part of that interview, where we really get into Jerry's story and I explain how these pages came into my possession. I am eternally grateful, once again, for this opportunity to spread the gospel of Jerry Robinson.  

Kevin Smith has been an amazing supporter, so sure to subscribe to his YouTube channel (here) if you haven't already, and be sure to subscribe to Pod Sequentialism with Matt Kennedy via iTunes here. Please watch, share, and enjoy!

For those of you who will go to see Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, if you stay for the end credits roll, you will see that Jerry Robinson was included in the "Special Thanks" alongside Bob Kane, Bill Finger, Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster. Let's hope this is the first step toward creator credit in the subsequent films!
