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.

This book is about 2 boys named Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The weren't too popular in school and they both didn't have alot of friends, until they met each other. They made their own comic books. Jerry does the writing and Joe was the illustrator. One day Joe thought "What if someone could be super - strong, be super - fast and fly?" So, he jotted some notes down, went to Joe's house and created Superman. You want to know more about the book? You could if you read Boys of Steel: The Creators of Superman .
Something I learned from this book is that you don't need to be super to do something great.
The illustrations looked almost like the real thing and really good. I'll try and draw like that someday.
I recommend this book for other people because it was a really interesting story.
(Also because Superman is my favorite superhero)
