1st app Batman by Bob Kane; one of the top three most important comics ever published! Comic Book Impact rating of 10 (CBI)
After DC Comics' huge success with Superman, editors were looking for another superhero to cash in on, and young creators Bob Kane and Bill Finger came up with The Batman. The team was inspired by Douglas Fairbanks' portrayal of Zorro, Lee Falk's comic strip The Phantom, Leonardo DaVinci's ornithopter (glider) blueprints which had large bat-like wings, the classic mystery film The Bat Whispers, and the mystery novel The Circular Staircase. As a result, in May of 1939, DC hit pay-dirt again with one of the most memorable and iconic fictional characters in history, Batman! Witnessing the murder of his parents as a child leads millionaire Bruce Wayne to train himself to physical and intellectual perfection and don a bat-themed costume in order to fight crime. Detective Comics #27 is one of the most desirable and valuable comic books to own, an important part of American pop culture history.
