Bill Finger

Bill Finger wrote Batman's earliest adventures in Detective Comics and made several significant suggestions, helping refine Kane's initial concept. He worked on many DC characters and titles and scripted some of the 1940s Batman and Robin newspaper strips. Finger's TV credits include 77 Sunset Strip, The Roaring Twenties, and Hawaiian Eye, as well as the animated New Adventures of Superman and a two-part Clock King episode of the 1966 Batman series.
