            Giclée on Paper USA, circa 1989 Bob Kane (1915- 1998)— American comic book artist Signed by Bob Kane ‘Rob’t Kane’ Originally Drawn 1939 Edition AP 40/50 Embossed Stamped by DC Publications Dimensions: 23 x 22 in. (58.4 x 55.9 cm.) Very good condition Estimate: $300 This limited edition print is hand signed by the Caped Crusader's legendary creator, Bob Kane. Kane's early designs were based on Leonardo Da Vinci 15th-century drawings of a flying machine. This print shows how Kane took Da Vinci designs and transformed them into one of the most popular super heroes of all time. Bob Kane (American, 1915 -1998) An early contributor to the genre, the precocious Kane (nee Kahn) burst into the world of comics in 1936 after publishing his own book. Before long, as a result of public response to the Superman comics, the demand for more superhero characters and stories led him to join National Publications (now DC Comics). There he created the improbably winged “Birdman”, a simply-masked hero meting out justice in a series of marginally successful yet uninspired stories. It was writer Bill Finger who counseled his young protégé by suggesting there was potential in his concept if he adopted a few broad changes; the introduction of a threatening cowl, a long and sinuous cape to replace the wings, a costume palette of dark, rich tone, and a pair of elbow-length gloves to accent the menace. To aid in the transition, Finger wrote the first installment but, as often happens, since Kane had already submitted the concept to editors, Finger is a forgotten figure in the landscape of super-hero history. Kane eventually signed-away any financial ownership of the Batman character in exchange for a requisite credit byline in perpetuity. Kane’s work contributed to the defining contemporary trend of heroes imbued with complex personalities and story arcs that progressed over years. His style also evolved with the times, becoming more refined and less mannered. Although in his later life he concentrated on fine art painting, it was his Batman creation that secured his place in popular culture. He died in 1998 and is buried in Forrest Lawn cemetery in Los Angeles. Condition The work is in very good condition, clean and unblemished. Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.
