Dini’s career began as a writer for animated TV series. Some of his most famous work was for Warner Bros. Animation, where he earned five Emmy Awards, working on smash-hit series like Batman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond, Superman: The Animated Series, The New Batman/Superman Adventures and Krypto the Superdog. During this time, he also co-created fan favorite characters, Harley Quinn and Terry McGinnis for DC. After animation, Dini went on to write comics for publishers like DC, Marvel and Oni Press. Some of his most notable works include the Eisner Award winning books, The Batman Adventures: Mad Love and Batman Adventures Holiday Special. He has also written on series such as Batman: Arkham City, Detective Comics and Gotham City Sirens. In 2013, he received an Inkpot Award for his outstanding contributions to animation and comics. This year marks the 30th anniversary of Dini’s co-created character Harley Quinn, and to coincide with the anniversary he is the main writer on the upcoming title, Harley Quinn 30th Anniversary Special #1, releasing this September!
