Notes

Story splash page edited to provide illusion of a Batman solo story since the original logo area was marked The Brave and the Bold. Original cover had “Batman and ?” as the logos beneath the Brave and the Bold magazine logo. This celebrates Superman's first team-up with Batman in The Brave and the Bold magazine.
