When I was six years old, I fell in love with Batman. He was the first superhero I remember seeing and I learned how to draw just so I could draw Batman.
The first superhero I ever drew that wasn't Batman was a very similar character called "The Black Beetle." Over the years, the Black Beetle evolved into the Bedbug we know and love today, but Batman's shadow still looms large over Bedbug, his adventures and his universe.
Happy 75th Birthday Batman and many thanks to his creators, Bob Kane, Bill Finger, Jerry Robinson and all the others who gave us the greatest superhero ever, thanks for years of thrills, action and mystery, fueling our imagination and inspiring us to create heroes and worlds of our own.
