Profile: Bob Kane

Once again, I have to credit the book Ten-Cent Plague as a source for some of this information. Most of it however just comes from general knowledge.

Unfortunately, one of comics industry's great legacies has been in stealing other people's ideas. Greats such as Bill Finger (Jew), Jack Kirby (Jew) and even Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster (the creators of Superman. For decades DC screwed them out of the money and recognition they deserved) have never been given the appropriate credit.

When it's a business doing these things it's abhorrent. But when it happens because of a fellow creator's own ego and greed it's even more disgusting and reprehensible.

Kane was suggested by reader Brooke from New York.
