Bob Kane File
By the second issue of Batman, the transformation of the character and franchise from dark, brooding, mystery of the night to cheerful (if bizarre) puncher of bad persons was complete. Even the backgrounds of these covers mark a decisive change from the pre-Robin era: from dense, detailed settings full of menace to bright, eye-catching color washes meant to pry coins from the pockets of precocious boys. Despite the flattening of the character's idiosyncrasies, there was also no denying the inventiveness and joy of these classic-era tales, with Kane's ghost artists - fine craftsmen all - filling pages and pages with deliriously imaginative locales, perfectly craggy thug faces, and no end to the action and mayhem.


Artists Information

A celebrity comic artist of the Golden Age, co-created Batman and Robin with Bill Finger, as his brainchild became more in demand he hired an army of ghost artists to illustrate the dearth of Batman features on the market, but all were credited to Kane. His other achievements include the creation of Catwoman, Two-Face and cartoon character Courageous Cat. Kane was the object of some controversy for taking credit for the art and inspiration of others, but he was also undoubtedly an important figure in the history of comics. He published an updated version of his autobiography "Batman and Me: The Saga Continues" shortly before his death in 1998. He got his start at the Eisner/Iger studio and was inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame.

Sherrill David Robinson known as Jerry Robinson, was an American comic book artist known for his work on DC Comics' Batman line of comics during the 1940s. He is best known as the co-creator of Robin and the Joker and for his work on behalf of creators' rights. He was inducted into the Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2004.
