    Marc Tyler Nobleman

    Marc Tyler Nobleman

    This month we’re talking to Marc Tyler Nobleman. Marc is the author of 86 books ranging from colorful and funny children's fiction about chupacabras to incredibly moving all ages non-fiction about reconciliation after World War 2. Marc dedicated years of his life to fighting for the legacy of Bill Finger, the now credited co-creator of Batman. In September 2015 due in no small part to Marc’s work, DC Comics agreed to include Bill as a creator of Batman wherever that credit is shown. We’re super honored to have him on the show.
