What are your thoughts on this? I found it online:

I don't believe it's true that much but I want to hear someone else's opinion too.

We used to have a thread called 'Raising the Finger', which was about how Bill Finger got shafted in terms of the his creative contributions to the Batman mythos.

Bill Finger doesn't get nearly enough credit or respect. Honestly, Bob Kane receives too much. It is for all intents and purposes Finger's character.

Bill Finger had an important part of the creation of Batman, Bob Kane helped and since he gave DC the concept he get the sole title. a part of me wished that Bill was given more respect and credit for his contribution.

I will assume you mean the new DC book FIRST WAVE. I find the idea of an alternate universe with Doc and other pulp heroes interesting. The original press release said it was a world in the 30's but with some modern items scattered through it. The first book they did (BATMAN/DOC SAVAGE one shot) did a pretty good job of showing this. The FIRST WAVE #1 made it look more like a modern day setting with a few old time things hanging around. It had some good things in it...but I will have to see more issues to see how they play this out.

"Bob made him more insecure, because while he slaved working on Batman, he wasn't sharing in any of the glory or the money that Bob began to make, which is why… [he was] going to leave [Kane's employ]. … [Kane] should have credited Bill as co-creator, because I know; I was there. … That was one thing I would never forgive Bob for, was not to take care of Bill or recognize his vital role in the creation of Batman. As with Siegel and Shuster, it should have been the same, the same co-creator credit in the strip, writer and artist."

I have the issue of Comic Book Artist where the Kane/Finger article is talked about, it's a shame that in all the interviews Bob Kane has given he barely even gave a passing mention to Bill Finger.

And it's good that Finger suggested the cowl idea who knows if not for Bill's suggestions the world might've been given this Bird-Man character with blond hair.

What do you expect? In the 80s, when the Batman movie came out, he called Todd McFarlane his "ghost"

His tombstone says enough about him

Let's never put the words "finger" and "*******" in the same sentence again when discussing Batman.

Here's a page I put together years ago on Bill Finger. It has a link to that "Raises the Finger" thread mentioned above.

Also found this very interesting blog, written by a comic-book fan in the procress of writing a book about Finger, explaining his significance to Batman and comics in general. Whats particularly interesting about this blog however is that it has interviews with people such as Finger's writing partner and widow. This makes it stand-out against all other writing about Finger, because it is actually about the man, not the material he created. Before this blog, there were only 2 photos of Finger in known existance, but now there are several more.

The blog is dozens of entries long and so far too detailed to be copied here, however I've attached a link to his work, which only shows relevant material.

Let's not forget about the contributions of Gardner Fox. There were 8 appearances of Batman in Detective comics in 1939 and Fox wrote 6 of them.
