What is different about "Bill the Boy Wonder"

Multiple books have covered the creation of Batman. As I see it, here are the three biggest aspects about Bill the Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator of Batman that are new:

  • tells the Batman creation story with Bill as the (rightful) center
  • tells it in a previously unused format for a previously untapped audience
  • reveals details about Bill’s life beyond comics that have not been published before

My goal was not to disparage cartoonist Bob Kane but rather to give long overdue credit to Bill (in a form more permanent than any that’s come before). I focus on facts and (with one exception) don’t pass judgment on Kane. I let his widely documented actions speak for themselves.
