Bill Finger remembered

Thirty-five years ago today, Bill Finger, the uncredited co-creator and original writer of Batman, died in New York City.

No mainstream obituary ran.

No funeral took place.

It was as if no one then understood the cultural force we lost.

If Finger died today, he'd be all over the news, and rightfully so.

It is never too late for a memorial.

This year, Batman turns 70.

This year, Bill Finger is going public.

I'm so ready to see that happen, and eagerly waiting to see what you've got planned. You can count on me to be at the front of the line!

Thanks for all your work... I just started a Bill Finger Appreciation Group on Facebook to spread the word.
