Only really doing this because it’s Sunday and I’m bored.
In the style of the ‘special thanks’ tags in the credits for every superhero film, I’m going to make a master list of every comic writer and artist who had a hand in creating the characters and/or stories used for inspiration in the recently-concluded Gotham TV series.
This is basically my way of honoring the great work of comics creators across the generations that fueled five entire seasons of a show I enjoyed watching. DC rarely (if ever) does this for their shows, so I might as well take a shot.
I tried to be as comprehensive as humanly possible, even for characters that are only inspired by or are amalgamations of several different characters with the same name. Did I miss any? Let me know.
Here we go:
BATMAN created by Bill Finger and Bob Kane
