Problem is, he chooses one of the worst ways possible to do it. Come check it out!

I found it amusing that you seemed to draw a blank on Sheldon Moldoff. His "stint on Batman" really was basically him being the primary artist on Batman in Bob Kane's name. 14-some years of secretly doing Bob's work for him. He also co-created Bat-Girl, Poison Ivy, Bat-mite, Bat-hound, etc. Granted, you did talk about this being early in his career, and at this point was paid to do illustrated fact pages. The sports drawing from Action #1 was his first work, but really, at this early stage, people didn't have a large background in Superhero work. By July 1940 he'll be drawing Green Lantern's first cover.
