It seemed innocuous enough. DC Entertainment declared July 23 Batman Day, with retailers and libraries giving away a special edition reprint of the first Batman story, as it appeared in Detective Comics 27 in , illustrated by creator Bob Kane, and written by Bill Finger. He was the real talent behind Batman. It is now my time to come out of the shadows and speak up and end 75 years of exploitation of my grandfather. I am currently exploring our rights and considering how best to establish the recognition that my grandfather deserves. DCE maintains Kane is the sole creator of Batman. It also asserts that Finger made massive contributions to the DC Comics mythology—not just with Batman, but a host of other characters.
I know that both Bob and Bill worked together with the Batman issues but the real question is: who really created Batman? Was it Bob Kane? Was it Bill Finger? Or both? I want to know. From what I understand, Kane actually came up with the basic idea of Batman, but it was Finger who came up with his look as well as much of iconic Batman's lore such as the Batcave, Robin the Joker.
