Bill Finger Talk

"BATMAN, BOB KANE & BILL FINGER" gallery talk Thursday May 15, 2014, 6:00 pm EST, Art on A Gallery, 24 Avenue A NYC—and LIVE-STREAMED video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKHpUPhxrpc!

On the occasion of the 75th Anniversary of Batman's first published appearance in May 1939, I discuss the behind-the-scenes origin of the character, with specific attention paid to the unsung co-creator role of Kane's writer and partner, Bill Finger. This logo image is based on Kane's first "Bat-Man" sketch that he showed to Finger before Finger made all the suggestions that "...made Batman, Batman"!
