This Thanksgiving holiday, Londyn had the pleasure of speaking with Athena Finger, the granddaughter of Batman co-creator Bill Finger! Londyn and co-host / producer Mason Booker talk with Athena about her grandfather’s incredible and important contributions to crafting the Bat-Man character with co-creator Bob Kane in 1939, the controversial history and journey of Bill Finger receiving recognition by DC Comics for co-creating this pop culture icon and what future projects are in store to continue celebrating Mr. Finger’s work not just for the Batman mythos but also for the DC Universe. Without Bill Finger’s changes to the original design of Kane’s Bat-Man, to developing mythology such as the Batcave and the Batmobile, to writing his thrilling adventures, we wouldn’t have the Dark Knight we all know and love today. Listen in to Batman history at its finest and a special Thanksgiving surprise on this week’s episode of History of the Batman with Londyn! presented by Meltdown Comics and Collectibles!
