Public service announcement: this is NOT Bill Finger

Multiple sites—including Google, perpetually—identify this as Bill Finger:

Multiple times I've notified them that it is actually Gardner Fox—and I've already mentioned it here—yet it remains unchanged. Hence this PSA.

While we're on the subject, this isn't Bill, either:

It's comics writer Robert Kanigher. (Thanks Mark Evanier.)

Oh, also often labeled as Bill but not? Him:

(Steve Ditko.)

It's bad enough that Bill remains officially uncredited for his work, so the least we can do is properly credit his face.

For the record, this is Bill Finger…17 times.
