This book is about a person who was also behind the creation of Batman. You see, a man name Milton (Bill) Finger met Bob Kane (Bob was a cartoonist) at a party, and Bob had an assignment to create a superhero. He had the name down, but the picture just didn't look right. So, Bob went to Bill for help. Bill made the finishing touches to the new superhero and the publisher loved it. And thats how Batman was created. Although, Bill didn't stop there. He created villians, a vechicle, even his own sidekick. You want to know more?, you could if you read Bill the Boy Wonder the Secret Co-Creator of Batman.
I learned that there were 2 creators of Batman. One was known more and the other was almost a secret. I also learned that Bill created Robin as well.
The drawings showed images of the Great Depression (which takes place in the 1930s) and it was very detailed.
Yes, I recommend this book for other comic book readers because people might like Batman and think they would like to know the true creators.
