Ty Templeton Draws Batman As Created By Bob Kane And Nobody Else

Bob Kane's Batman by Ty Templeton

Here at ComicsAlliance, we've grumbled more than a couple of times about the persistent, legally mandated "Batman Created By Bob Kane" credit that appears on every single Batman story.

But what if -- and this is a really big "what if" -- that credit was actually accurate?

Buy This Book: ‘Elseworlds 80-Page Giant’ Gets A Digital Release


One of the great things about the rise of digital comics is how much potential there is for access to a company's back catalog.

The Ballad of Comic Con Grifter Rob Granito


A prolific comics convention grifter was run out of the proverbial town over the weekend thanks to the vigilant efforts of the comic book Internet community. Rob Granito has reportedly been banished from a number of high profile conventions for his unscrupulous practices of tracing or otherwise duplicating existing comic book artwork and selling it as his own; misrepresenting himself to convention organizers and other parties as a working professional; claiming to be the "ghost" creator of famous comic book works; and, most distastefully, attempting to strengthen his fabricated reputation by lying about a working relationship with the late Dwayne McDuffie...
