  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Chuck Dixon is an acclaimed American Comic Book writer, best known for his work on DCU comic books throughout the 90s, particularly Batman family titles.

Dixon broke into comics with Eclipse Comics in the late '80s, and became a prolific writer at Marvel Comics, most prominently on The Punisher.

Dixon's work with the Bat-verse began with a five-issue Robin miniseries in 1991, focusing on the then-current Robin, Tim Drake. The success of the mini-series led to two sequel miniseries featuring Robin, The Joker's Wild! and Cry of the Huntress, also met with agreeable reviews. By 1993, during the midst of the Knightfall debacle, Dixon (now already the regular writer of Detective Comics) was given writing duties on a solo Robin ongoing, which he would write for one hundred consecutive issues with more artists than could be counted. As the decade went on, so did Dixon's writing duties - at his peak, he managed half a dozen monthly books simultaneously - Detective Comics, Robin, Nightwing, Catwoman, Green Arrow, and more, not to mention dozens of fill-ins for other books and an untold number of one-shots and miniseries.

In addition to kick-starting the Robin and Nighwing ongoings, Dixon also created famed Bat-villain Bane, and was the mastermind behind Birds of Prey, both in its several initial miniseries and its ongoing, all the way through issue number 46 in 2002.

In the early oughties, Dixon moved over to Cross Gen. He briefly returned to DC circa 2008, where he was perhaps most notably responsible for the Author's Saving Throw Retcon of Stephanie Brown's death during the War Games arc. Leaving due to unspecified tensions between him and DC management, in recent years he has written for several independent companies, most notably IDW Publishing, for their G.I. Joe titles.
