Quick sketch inspired by a tweet from Kevin Church that gave me one of those “I can’t resist” feelings. Forgive me, all and sundry.

"Bob had gotten to the point where he never drew anything. Never drew anything on the Batman comics, anyway. [Sheldon] Moldoff was ghosting them all and when he didn’t, someone else did. The only thing I think Bob ever drew was when we’d be out somewhere, in a restaurant or someplace, and a pretty girl would come over to him and say, ‘Are you really the man who draws Batman?’ Then he could whip out a little sketch for her, a big sketch if she was wearing something low-cut and would bend over to watch him draw.

One day I’m over at his house to discuss this newspaper strip idea we had and he’s talking about who we might get to draw it. I was going to write it and we were going to get someone else to draw it. I’m not sure what Bob was going to do on it except sign his name. I said to him, ‘Bob, isn’t it disappointing to you that you don’t draw any more? You were once such a great artist.’ He wasn’t but you had to talk to Bob that way.

He said, ‘Oh, no. Let me show you something.’ He took me into a little room in his house. It was his studio. I didn’t even know he still had a studio. It was all set up with easels and things and there were paintings, paintings of clowns. You know the kind. Like the ones Red Skelton used to do. Just these insipid portraits of clowns, all signed very large, ‘Bob Kane.’ He was so proud of them. He said, ‘These are the paintings that are going to make me in the world of art. Batman was a big deal in one world and these paintings will soon be in every gallery in the world.’ He thought the Louvre was going to take down the Mona Lisa to put up his clown paintings. I didn’t have the heart to tell him.

So a few months later, I’m up at DC and I ran into Eddie Herron. Eddie was another writer up there and we got to talking and Bob’s name came up. Eddie said, ‘Did you hear? Bob’s getting sued by one of his ghost artists.’

I said, ‘How is that possible? Shelly Moldoff’s suing Bob? But they had a clear deal. Shelly knew he wasn’t going to get credit or anything…’

Eddie said, ‘No, not Shelly.’ Bob was being sued by the person who’d painted the clowns for him…”

this worldending idiot is the guy that gets the credit for “creating” Batman btw, not the guy who actually did all of the work

Can’t wait to kick Bob Kane’s ass in the afterlife.

If you ever see “Created by Bob Kane” on anything Batman-related, remember to say “Bullshit!” aloud and tell anyone who asks exactly why you said it.

Always reblog Bob Kane being a jerk.

I like it when somebody gets excited about something. It’s nice.

Osamu Tezuka as a meme? That’s right, Internet. This is Osamu Tezuka.

You can call this meme douche-bag artist-multimillionaire, too.

WARNING: Extremely demotivating.

PS: In reality, Osamu Tezuka was extraordinarily kind.

And this is why I greatly respect and admire him.

Yeah dude I am not demotivated, I’m in awe.

GET TO WORK.

I love this so much. It’s a shame that the feud will (assumedly) only extend through Elimination Chamber. I didn’t know I needed a team of mercenaries battling a cult of pagan hillbillies in some sort of The Raid-style Elimination Chamber scenario, but HOLY SHIT DO I EVER. I want Wyatt to bring a hundred cult followers with him to the Superdome only for The Shield to tear through the roof in a helicopter and fight them all. Tell me that wouldn’t be the best WrestleMania in f*cking history.

During the brawl we started noticing smoke and started freaking out even more that something wrong was going on. I turned to my left to see where the smoke was coming from and saw the door slowly rising up. “No! It can’t be! They didn’t actually get it, did they?!” Yup, there was the DeLorean, and it was glorious.
