    Started by artist and creator Jerry Robinson for the late Bill Finger who never got his due credit for his creations/writing while he was alive (Including the co-creation of Batman). The award is given out yearly at San Diego Comic Con. It was personally handed out by Jerry Robinson himself up to 2011 (he passed shortly after). The current committee head is Mark Evanier.
