      I have never wanted to win something like this so badly. I mainly want it because of a friend of mine, I owe them back big time. But it would be sad to see someone that is more of a fan not win it.

      Wow! Extremely coincidental as I was telling my husband last night the Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" was the first graphic novel I ever read. Such a great story. Thrilled to see it included in this list.

      Following up on earlier comments, actually Bob Kane should be take out and only Bill Finger should remain... and the question changed to "who REALLY created Batman?". Hehehe.

      My nephew turns 40 later this year and still buys his comic books every week. Wouldn't I be the bestest auntie if I were able to present him with one of those statues (he's probably got all the issues from the graphic novels)!
