Some of you might be interested to know that there is a campaign to get some small, belated recognition for Bill Finger for his outstanding work on Batman, via a Google Doodle in his honour on the 100th anniversary of his date of birth 08 Feb 2014.

WP article here and an update here. The email address for Google is proposals@google.com

I just sent them an email supporting this, with a link to the Bill Finger Wikipedia page.

Hopefully they already have already received some actual doodles. Feb 2 isn't that far away.

Thanks for sharing this, Figs.  It's a great cause.  Email sent.

One slight correction, from the articles, Bill Finger's birthday is Feb 8, not Feb 2.

Thanks, John. Have amended it. The US date format from the article was running interference in my head when I wrote it. 

I hate the U.S. date format. 23 January, 2014 makes so much more sense.
