Today, when the creative force behind an iconic character dies, it's unthinkable that this would not be mentioned in mainstream news and entertainment publications.
Yet when Batman co-creator and original writer Bill Finger died, in 1974, no obituary ran in the New York Times...or Variety...or anywhere else...
...except two lesser-seen DC Comics publications (neither was a regular monthly comic book). One was an oversized special called Famous First Edition: Batman #1 (1975).
This is the inside front cover:
"Last February, The Batman lost a father. One of his two real fathers, that is."
The one who is never officially named as a father, despite the undisputed paternity test on record here and elsewhere.
