BATMAN: BOB KANE
Kane has drawn Batman's face next to his signature on a numbered, color, 24x35½ poster.
Original Art signed: "Bob/Kane" in black pencil in lower left of poster. To the right of his signature Kane has drawn Batman's face with the same pencil (1½x2). Signed on printed illustration of Batman and Robin descending on Gotham City (color, 24x35½). Numbered (unknown hand) in lower right corner: "25/30." In 1939, 18-year-old Bob Kane (1915-1998), born Robert Kahn, a born doodler, was challenged by his boss at DC Comics to create a superhero. Kane responded by ingeniously combining the fear of bats and the use of disguises from the 1920s silent films, The Bat and The Mark of Zorro, with drawings from Leonardo da Vinci to create his heroic character, Batman. His renderings of Batman, Robin and their villainous counterparts transcended the fledgling comic book industry. Kane's superhero and his alter ego, Bruce Wayne (modeled on the artist himself), has been the subject of a campy TV series (1966-1968) and a series of Batman films, including Batman (1989), Batman Returns (1992), Batman Forever (1995), Batman & Robin (1997) and Batman Begins (2005), as well as a spin-off film, Catwoman (2004). Kane made a cameo appearance in Batman & Robin. Fine condition.
