I think this might be appropriate here. If not and I can figure out how to delete it I will. The topic of credit for the creation of Batman has been discussed many times and by many people often with indignation and outrage. It is well known that Bob Kane never gave the credit due to Bill Finger while he was alive and it was long thought that there was no one left in the Finger family to speak up for Bill's rights. But thanks to the tireless work of Marc Tyler Nobleman members of the Finger family have been found and credit has been finally awarded along with all that means. Athena Finger is the granddaughter of Bill and in an interview for my Scholar's Corner column for Scoop Athena tells her story of what it is like living under the shadow of the Batman mythos. It was an honor to be able to interview her and to have met with her at NYCC last Oct. Many thanks to Athena for her time and candor.  http://scoop.previewsworld.com/Home/4/1/73/1017?ArticleID=194623
