Semi-factual or not, for a 12 year old this 5-page story was
very interesting...had never given much thought to how comics
were created and the people that did it.

It’s amazing that DC would endeavor to tell the story of Batman’s creation in Real Fact Comics without mentioning Bob Kane’s name on the first page. That said, given the dispute over ownership of the character I have to wonder if he’s mentioned at all in the story.

Real facts are often complicated and rarely publicly disclosed. DC’s lawyers often used the endorsement of checks as a contract, acquiring full ownership of characters in exchange for a work for hire payment via cashed check. Note: This is how DC acquired control of Superman from Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster.

Bob Kane’s situation was a bit different. The court case was settled and tilted in Kane’s favor due to his claim of being under age at the time he signed DC’s work for hire check. I suspect this legal resolution was not part of the Real Facts story.

@CatmanAmerica - Don’t forget to mention that Bob Kane took all the credit for Milton “Bill” Finger’s contributions to Batman and his rogues gallery. If you get the chance, watch the Batman & Bill documentary from 2017. I caught it on Amazon Prime a year or two ago. I am not sure where it can be seen now, but it showed how Bob Kane basked in the limelight for Batman, while many other's works were kept in the shadows for far too many years.

“THE STORY OF AL LOVELAND” was produced in 1950 by COMMERCIAL COMICS for U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Al Loveland’s campaign bid for the U.S. Senate from Iowa. It is one of only four U.S. political comic books that were 8 pages long and 7” x 10” in size. Script by Malcolm Ater, Sr., with art by Jack Sparling. The art in this book is truly vintage Jack Sparling art from the 1940's to 50's and is well reflected in his style and true facial expressions of his characters. This is a mint file copy.
