"The Bat," 1926

In April 2013, a theologian in Germany named Max Weremchuk kindly contacted me to share images he discovered while researching sources of potential inspiration for Batman...namely The Circular Staircase (book 1908, movie 1915) and The Bat (play 1920, movies 1926 and 1930).

Another great post and one for the trail of clues as to what did and not potentially influence Batman.
Thanks Marc!
