New York City to Honor Bill Finger

Anybody familiar with the story of Bill Finger knows that he got the short end of the stick during his lifetime.

For those unfamiliar with the story, Finger was denied credit for decades for his part in co-creating Batman because Bob Kane made a sweet deal with with DC Comics granting him the title of sole creator. However, thanks in large part to the efforts of Marc Tyler Nobleman‘s quest to make things right (check out Bill the Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator of Batman and Batman and Bill on Hulu), the world is finally starting to recognize Finger’s contributions to the creation of one of DC’s Trinity.

New York City has announced that they will be putting up a new street sign marking “Bill Finger Way” later this week. The sign is being placed at East 192nd Street and the Grand Concourse in the Bronx, which is right by Poe Park where Kane and Finger originally came up with the idea for Batman.

The ceremony is open to the public and will take place December 8 at 10 a.m. Finger’s granddaughter, Athena Finger and historian and author Marc Tyler Nobleman are expected to be in attendance.
