Comics writer famous for the series Fables. In the late 90s and early 00s, was writer for Robin when editorial mandated Stephanie Brown be killed in the War Games Batman crossover event. In the lead-up to that event, he wrote Steph's brief tenure as Robin. Willingham has caused controversy among Stephanie Brown fans (including our esteemed founder) by dismissing or expressing anger at those who disagree with his writing of the character and her death.

You can find interviews with Willingham about Steph collected here on the site, and a recollection of our founder's experience with Willingham at a convention here and here . Just after the launch of the N52, Willingham did a podcast with War Rocket Ajax in which he discuss the War Games crossover and aftermath in detail.
