Aug 22, 1915 - Jan 29, 1977
William Robert ("Bob") Brown had a long career in comic books stretching from the 1940s into the 1970s. He mainly appeared in comics for DC, but also had a long run drawing Daredevil for Marvel Comics. Bob Brown co-created the female character Talia al Ghul, which has appeared frequently not only in the Batman comic books, but figured in the billion dollar film The Dark Knight Rises.
Brown died from leukemia in 1977, shortly after beginning a new run on Wonder Woman for DC Comics. He only completed one issue (Wonder Woman #231).
