Liebling, Texas is a city that has been around for quite some time. It is located in Hill County, Texas, which is in the south central part of Texas. The name Liebling comes from German and means flowing water. There are two rivers that drain into this area, namely Cedar Creek and Bracknell Creek. It was believed that John Liebling was the first person to put the name to this place. He was born in Scotland and immigrated to the States where he became a cattle trader.
This was then and still is one of the most popular areas for comic books. There were two Liebling Comic stores in the area before the World Wide Web came about. These were established in the early 1970's by Don Loe. He started out selling comic books and then later on moved on to working with movies. He was also an artist, who worked on such things as pencil drawings. One can travel back in time in order to see some of the amazing pieces of art that Loe produced.
Loe continued to work and his popularity only increased. In fact, he managed to create his own franchise with the comic book company. This was called IDW. In recent years, Liebling has produced over twenty five television shows. Some of these have been critical successes and others have been less so. It is safe to say that Liebling has become one of the best known comic book artists in the world.
A trip down memory lane will show that Liebling is not the only comic artist to have their own television series. Bob Kane and Bill Finger created the Batman television series. Not only were they responsible for much of the success of the Dark Knight, but also the subsequent Batman films. There have been a few TV shows based on characters from other famous works of fiction. Superman, X-Men, and Batman have all had their moments in the spotlight.
One would not be able to deny the importance of Bob Kane and Bill Finger in the creation of the Batman comics. Batman himself has received a tremendous amount of exposure. From television to the big screen, Batman has managed to capture the interest of millions. The Caped Crusader has proven himself time again.
Many modern writers and artists owe a great deal to the work of Liebling. Stories that he has written have been turned into some of the most popular titles in the world. He was responsible for many of the memorable scenes in the Batman films as well. While it is easy to become confused by the character's appearance in later ages, one should never forget how influential Liebling was in the early days of the comic book industry. He is a singularly great comic writer.
All of the above talk about Liebling does not do him any good. He still has a lot to offer. In particular, he was very instrumental in the comic book industry's history. Without him, comic books probably would not have had nearly the same longevity that they do today. It is fortunate that we are able to look back on the work of one of the truly great comic book authors of all time.
All of that said, there is no way to discuss Bob Kane and Bill Finger without discussing the dark knight himself. Batman has managed to create many classic stories, and many of them have served as the basis for future movies and TV series. Without Batman, there most likely would have been no Dark Knight movie. He is truly the face of modern day Batman.
