This is the true story of how Batman began.

Every Batman story is marked with the words "Batman created by Bob Kane." But that isn't the whole truth. A struggling writer named Bill Finger was involved from the beginning.

"Purposefully and meaningfully (and beautifully) written."
--Michael Uslan, executive producer of The Dark Knight Rises and author of The Boy Who Loved Batman

"Though Finger has been a known commodity to comics cognoscenti for years, this salute in his own format will make the lasting impression he deserves."
--Kirkus Reviews

"This eye-catching biography of Bill Finger is quite unique."
--School Library Journal

"A fitting tribute to a largely overlooked comic-book hero."
--Booklist
