Bill Finger added to list of Notable Bronxites

On 4/12/12, the Bronx Historical Society added Bill Finger to their list of Notable Bronxites. I had the honor of drafting the mini-bio (which was not mini enough and so was whittled down a bit). An excerpt (though can you give an excerpt of something so short to begin with?):

During his Bronx years, Finger designed Batman’s now-iconic costume, wrote the first and many of the now-classic Batman stories, and created or co-created characters including Robin, Joker, Catwoman, and Penguin—characters so prevalent in pop culture that even people who have never read a comic book can identify them.

More Bill-Bronx brouhaha to come.

Great to hear that Bill has been added to the list of notable Bronxites. Just one more step in spreading the word about his involvement in creating Batman.
