Dial B for Blog is Back with a Real Scoop on Batman!

And has an amazing series of posts about Batman's original stories that are staggering in their implications.

You'll have to scroll down a bit on that post to get to the meat of the allegations, but once you see the side-by-side comparisons, it becomes quite clear that Detective #27's Batman story, the first appearance of the caped crusader, was quite obviously swiped from two main sources; a Shadow pulp magazine and a Big Little Book.

There are a couple of weak points, but overall the evidence is overwhelming. I'm completely flabbergasted.
