  • Robin Hood #1 image

    Friday 24/10/14

    Batman, Robin, the Joker, the Penguin and Catwoman have soundtracked hundreds of millions ofchildhood since 1939, when Bob Kane created them, hoping to compete with Superman.

    Born Robert Kahn on this day in 1915, Kane would go on to work in TV animation, consult on the 1980s and 1990s Batman films, and work as an artist, supported by teams of ghost artists.

    We are amazed that a Depression-era creation - the superhero - still flourishes in the internet era. And so we are toasting Batman's creator (and his less-sung comrade, Bill Finger), with a Robin Hood #1, our take on Tony Conigliaro's apple creation.
