GOTHAM Creator Credit List

Only really doing this because it’s Sunday and I’m bored.

In the style of the ‘special thanks’ tags in the credits for every superhero film, I’m going to make a master list of every comic writer and artist who had a hand in creating the characters and/or stories used for inspiration in the recently-concluded Gotham TV series.

This is basically my way of honoring the great work of comics creators across the generations that fueled five entire seasons of a show I enjoyed watching. DC rarely (if ever) does this for their shows, so I might as well take a shot.

I tried to be as comprehensive as humanly possible, even for characters that are only inspired by or are amalgamations of several different characters with the same name. Did I miss any? Let me know.

Here we go:
